Tell the truth. Or face the consequences. Clue meets Riverdale in this page-turning thriller that exposes the lies five teens tell about a deadly night one year ago. One year ago, there was a party. At the party, someone died. Five teens each played a part and up until now, no one has told the truth. But tonight, the five survivors arrive at an isolated mansion in the hills, expecting to compete in a contest with a $50,000 grand prize. Of course…some things are too good to be true. They were each so desperate for the prize, they didn’t question the odd, rather exclusive invitation until it was too late. Now, they realize they’ve been lured together by a person bent on revenge, a person who will stop at nothing to uncover what actually happened on that deadly night, one year ago. Five arrived, but not all can leave. Will the truth set them free?
Or will their lies destroy them all?
This book had me hooked by page one! Pitcher’s writing is creepy and suspenseful! Although it isn’t like a typical horror book this book is definitely a thriller. I’ve never been a fan of porcelain dolls and Pitcher definitely did a fantastic job on making them give me the chills. I loved the beautiful use of metaphors, it made the imagery much more interesting and in a way, way more significant. Even though this story is taken place in just one night and we are giving some flashbacks, I came to know the characters quite well! I love guessing who did what in stories and this book definitely threw me for some loops a few times. There were moments on my lunch break at work that I struggled to tear my eyes from the book not wanting to loose the build up and the thrill. I loved all the conniving, the vengeance, the regrets, the hate, the love and friendship in this story! Pitcher did a fantastic job at bringing it all together! I definitely recommend this book to anyone and everyone who likes a good mystery thriller!
