“Daisy Darker headed in a direction I didn’t expect, and I was torn between rereading all I just read or going forward to see what was next! A dark and twisty tale — from the moment we arrive at Seaglass with the waves pounding until the very end.”

The New York Times bestselling Queen of Twists returns...with a family reunion that leads to murder.
After years of avoiding each other, Daisy Darker's entire family is assembling for Nana's 80th birthday party in Nana's crumbling gothic house on a tiny tidal island. Finally back together one last time, when the tide comes in, they will be cut off from the rest of the world for eight hours.
The family arrives, each of them harboring secrets. Then at the stroke of midnight, as a storm rages, Nana is found dead. And an hour later, the next family member follows...
Trapped on an island where someone is killing them one by one, the Darkers must reckon with their present mystery as well as their past secrets, before the tide comes in and all is revealed.
With a wicked wink to Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, Daisy Darker's unforgettable twists will leave readers reeling.
