Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

A luxury mountaintop chalet.

The opportunity of a lifetime.

Until guests start to disappear....

The unmissable new thriller from the queen of the modern-day murder mystery.

Snow is falling in the exclusive alpine ski resort of Saint Antoine, as the shareholders and directors of Snoop, the hottest new music app, gather for a make-or-break corporate retreat to decide the future of the company. At stake is a billion-dollar dot-com buyout that could make them all millionaires or leave some of them out in the cold. 

The clock is ticking on the offer, and with the group irrevocably split, tensions are running high. When an avalanche cuts the chalet off from help and one board member goes missing in the snow, the group is forced to ask - would someone resort to murder to get what they want?

Disappointing- both the narrative and narration

I did not finish listening to this audio book for a number of reasons - the story line was repetitive, drawn out and became tedious while the reader's differing voices never really convinced and often proved irritating. The avalanche that started the drama could well have been caused by the constant thudding of hearts, shaking bodies and plummeting stomachs - I lost count of the number of times Ware used these descriptions. Jokes aside this was a disappointing audio experience.

This story format is very overdone.

If you have read The Hunting Party or that author's subsequent book, you've already read this. Bunch of not very likeable people, trapped by avalanche/snow, with no Wi-Fi or phone start to die one by one. I had to skip the last 3+ hours as I couldn't stand the overegged melodrama...racing hearts, pounding blood in ears yada yada.. no tension and obvious killer and generally wishing they all died asap. Cannot believe good reviews for this book.

I couldn't stop listening to it!

This was a great story! I couldn't stop listening.


A creepy murder mystery but not too scary or gory.
I loved the setting and I liked the mix of characters.
I think the narrator did a great job.
This is the first book I've listened to by this author but I will definitely be looking at more by her.

Wrong narrator

I really did not like the narration of this audio book. In fact I’d go as far as saying it’s the worst I’ve listened to (and I have listened to a lot) In particular the accent used for Danny the chef was just terrible. The story itself is very weak. Trying for Agatha Christie and coming up so short. There were so many flaws in the plot. The characters were one dimensional and just non entities. It was all just very poor and badly written.

Let down by production volume

Decent enough thriller but infuriating difference in volume of characters. The overall volume was much lower than other books and I had to have the volume on my devices really loud to get a decent playback. Took away from the enjoyment.

Gripping but slightly predictable

As always this Ruth Ware book is s oagevturner that is hard to turn off. It is off to an extremely good and engaging start but loses momentum after the murder is revealed. Perhaps not that difficult to guess if you know its predecessor. But it is still a very good listen that keeps you engaged from beginning to end. I especially enjoyed the depiction of the Snoop contingent, quite sarcastic!

Insufferable Narration

The biggest crime here is the awful, grating voice of the narrator. Made it very tough to get through and will avoid in future I'm sorry to say. Bland story, unlikeable characters, weak. Genuinely surprised it's as highly rated as it is.

Excellent

Great “who done it?” Storyline, with excellent narration! Worth the credit. I will be looking for more Ruth Ware stories to listen to.

Tense and atmospheric novel, beautifully read

Tense and atmospheric, this novel by bestselling author Ruth Ware translates beautifully to the audio format. With its majestic and dangerous setting in the French Alps, sense of mounting dread and vivid portrayal of a group of cool tech types on a corporate skiing trip that turns very deadly, juxtaposed with the sharp observations of the long-suffering chalet staff, it is an absorbing and immersive experience.
