DAISY DARKER by Alice Feeney
9781250843937 | 8/30/22
“Take one crumbling Victorian mansion, the only habitation on an island edged with treacherous cliffs off the Cornish coast. Fill it with warring relatives and murderous motives. Stir in a ticking clock in the form of a tide that cuts everyone off from the mainland for eight hours. Result? A sinisterly satisfying play on Agatha Christie’s AND THEN THERE WERE NONE… Readers will be intrigued by the setting, the action, and the question of whether or not they can trust narrator Daisy.”—Booklist, starred review
