Publisher's Summary

If you only listen to one thriller this year....

"A great modern gothic. Ellison outdid herself - what an ending!" (Catherine Coulter, number one NYT best-selling author of VORTEX)

Fast-paced and brilliantly unpredictable, J.T. Ellison’s breathtaking new novel invites you to a wedding none will forget - and some won’t survive.

Jutting from sparkling turquoise waters off the Italian coast, Isle Isola is an idyllic setting for a wedding. In the majestic cliff-top villa owned by the wealthy Compton family, up-and-coming artist Claire Hunter will marry handsome, charming Jack Compton, surrounded by close family, intimate friends…and a host of dark secrets.

From the moment Claire sets foot on the island, something seems amiss. Skeletal remains have just been found. There are other, newer disturbances, too. Menacing texts. A ruined wedding dress. And one troubling shadow hanging over Claire’s otherwise blissful relationship - the strange mystery surrounding Jack’s first wife.

Then a raging storm descends, the power goes out - and the real terror begins....

You won't be able to guess what happens in the end!

Avoid this one

The story is repetitive and the ending is absolutely predictable. Contrived and boring. Just bad.

A favorite narrator

Chose this as a credit due to narrator. For me the story was good and did keep me intrigued, however the ending was a bit of a letdown and fairly predictable. The characters were enjoyable. If you’re wanting to read about a wedding in Italy with Italian food and landscape, this isn’t that book, but a good murder mystery taking place around a castle like villa on a cliff.

disappointing ending

VERY predictable ending, I guessed it way before halfway through...like nearly every part of the ending I saw coming a mile away. I do love the narrator. I like to end reviews on a good note.

Twists! Turns! Suspense! It has it all!!

Good story

I enjoyed this book. Brittany Pressley is my favorite narrator, so that probably biased my opinion.

Her Dark Lies

JT Ellison has done it again, wow everything about this book/listen is excellent and the ending as always will lead you to wondering. The characters and narration are perfect. Already looking forward to her next book.

Intriguing...

Filled with twists and turns! You won't want to stop listening as the story unfolds. The comradery amongst the brothers is genuine and makes you grin, thinking of your brothers or cousins. Cheers to the strong women of this novel ~ taking care of business! You'll be happy with this choice!

Great mystery, not so great ending.

The mystery was well done, though I suspected the ending for some time. Rather disappointed. Claire stays with Jack after all that happened. Both are pawns as far as I can tell. Still, Brittany did an amazing job.

kind of average

narration was good, the story was just a bit meh. It created enough curiosity to keep me going but there was no thrill, no excitement, just wondering what would happen

Not great

I listened to the end because this is easy to listen to, that’s because a child with an outline of ‘these are the elements of a thriller’ really could have written this. It is basic, predictable and dull.

None of the characters had enough depth for me to empathise with them. There were no clever plot twists.

An incredibly frustrating aspect of the story was that one of the main characters had the same name as a famous pop star, so instead of visualising the book character it brought to mind the rock star instead.

The one saving grace is that the narrator was good.

Stupid story

I stayed almost to the end but with an hour to go I couldn’t bear the story any longer. The narrator Brittany Presley is very ordinary. A big disappointment my suggestion is don’t bother.
