The Guest List is a truly fantastic mystery. Set on a picturesque Irish island, the wedding of the year is to take place. With every aspect of the nuptials meticulously planned, it seems only the weather can fail the party and yet it’s the guests themselves who surprise. Written from the perspective of five different characters, the plot flows flawlessly. Similar to an Agatha Christie novel, there is drama, opulence and suspense. Left with only themselves, each guest begins to manifest their very sense of self and human nature takes hold. The Guest List poses as the most gripping and atmospheric ‘whodunnit’ I have read in a long time!
