The Last Party

Holy bunch of suspects!

It’s no secret that there are many people who have a reason to dislike Rhys Lloyd. But there are secrets between the wealthy members of The Shore, the resort lodges he co-built. Then there are the secrets of the Welsh townspeople who once owned a small patch of the property The Shore sits on. But there are also secrets in the town of Cwm Coed, which sits directly across from The Shore.

All these secrets converge on the New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day, when Rhys is found floating in Mirror Lake. There are many reports of his behavior that conflict with the coroner’s report. What really happened to Rhys that night?

Leo Brady from England and Ffion Morgan from Wales are police on opposite sides of the dividing line between their countries, but must work together to find out the answer. I love that the author included Welsh dialect (with translations) that helped give the reader a feel for the pride that unites the community.

Thanks to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Landmark for an advance reader’s copy.
