Additional Notes

From The Publisher*By midnight, one of them is dead. By morning, all of them are suspects... Tucked into the mountains of North Wales, the village of Cwm Coed is bordered by a shimmering lake on one side and an army of pine trees on the other. But the tranquility is shattered when homegrown celebrity Rhys Lloyd returns to develop a luxury resort on the shore opposite the village. Old resentments begin to rise to the surface, and new tensions emerge between the locals and the outsiders. Still, when the resort throws open its doors for a New Year's Eve party, with champagne flowing through the night, none of the villagers can resist the invitation. The next morning, a body is found floating in the lake-and it's Rhys. Ffion Morgan is summoned to investigate, but with her deep ties to the village she dreads what she might find out about her neighbors, friends, and family. And what about her own link to the victim?
Review Quote*"I loved everything about The Last Party. Taut, pacey and so atmospheric with brilliantly executed twists and wonderfully written characters. DC Ffion Morgan is my new favorite detective. An absolute triumph." - Claire Douglas, author of The Couple at No. 9 "Superb. A compelling murder mystery told with warmth, humor and enough red herrings to keep even the most seasoned crime reader guessing." - C.L. Taylor, author of Sleep "Expertly plotted and relentlessly gripping, a perfectly executed murder mystery. The whip-sharp and deeply likeable Ffion leads the investigation, introducing us to a cast of brilliantly realized suspects. I loved every page." - Lucy Clarke, author of One of the Girls "Brilliant, so atmospheric. . . .I fell in love with the courageous, complicated detective Ffion Morgan and I think readers will too." - Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author of One by One Praise for HOSTAGE: "It felt like watching a blockbuster movie; edge of seat, nail biting, propulsive, compulsive, thrilling and just so beautifully done."- Lisa Jewell "Fiendishly clever. Mackintosh takes domestic suspense to new heights in this tale of a kidnapped child, hijacked plane, and two parents' desperate fight to save their family."- Lisa Gardner "A propulsive read-HOSTAGE will have you questioning ‘what would you do?' at every turn."- Karin Slaughter "Hypnotically good. Should be a hit, could be a classic"- Lee Child "A nail-biter of a thriller with an unexpected gut-punch at the end- a fantastic read."- Shari LaPena
