A LUXURY CHALET. AN OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME.
UNTIL GUESTS START TO DISAPPEAR…

Getting snowed in at a beautiful, rustic mountain chalet doesn’t sound like the worst problem in the world, especially when there’s a breathtaking vista, a cozy fire, and company to keep you warm. But what happens when that company is eight of your coworkers…and you can’t trust any of them?

When an off-site company retreat meant to promote mindfulness and collaboration goes utterly wrong and an avalanche hits, the corporate food chain becomes irrelevant and survival trumps togetherness. Come Monday morning, how many members short will the team be?

‘A real spine-chiller that confirms Ruth Ware as the true heir to Christie’s crown. Ingenious plotting sees the body count rise and multiple suspects eliminated until we’re left with breathless game of cat-and-mouse’

ERIN KELLY,  author of HE SAID, SHE SAID

‘The sense of dread deepens as the snow falls in Ruth Ware’s tensely plotted and deliciously cast alpine thriller. Seriously, you will never want to go skiing again.’

The Hell of Corporate Retreats

The Hell of Corporate Retreats

On paper it sounds great, doesn’t it? An all-expenses-paid trip somewhere nice, with a swanky hotel thrown in. Like a holiday really. A lovely, free holiday. The only catch is that it’s not technically a holiday…

The Pull of the Mountains

The Pull of the Mountains

I am not a sporty person and I don’t like anything physically competitive. Anything that ends up with you hot, sweaty, and at risk of physical injury is a hard no in my book. With one, inexplicable exception: skiing.
