The Fury

Lana Farrar is a reclusive ex-movie star, who keeps her circle very very tight. Every year, she invites her nearest and dearest to her private island in Greece. As one does. England is gloomy, making Greece the perfect escape. Only this year is different. There is a murder. The book opens with us not knowing who was murdered or who did it, just that there was a murder as well as few different betrayals. There’s Lana’s second husband and Lana’s son, Leo. There is her best friend, Kate. Her other best friend Elliot (our narrator). And then of course Lana’s assistant and the groundskeeper. Who would make such a betrayal? (And who dies?) This is one of those books where I want to tell you more but I also don’t as anything I say could be a spoiler. So I will just tell you that I enjoyed this and would recommend it. The dreamy setting would make it a great beach read. Greece is one of my most favorite places in the world, so that didn’t hurt either. But what I liked most about the book was that it felt creative vs. other thrillers. It constantly kept me guessing – it is a very twisty book with an unreliable narrator. But again, I won’t say anything more as I don’t want to spoil the twists.
