Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Totally original and utterly compelling, with a voice all of its own, this is the outstanding new thriller from the no.1 internationally bestselling author of The Silent Patient, Alex Michaelides.

This is a tale of murder.

Or maybe that's not quite true. At its heart, it's a love story, isn't it?

One spring morning, reclusive ex-movie star Lana Farrar invites a small group of her closest friends for a weekend away, on her small private island, just off the coast of Mykonos.

Beneath the surface, old friendships conceal violent passions and resentments. And in forty-eight hours, one of them will be dead.

But that was just the beginning...

You may think you know this story. Think again.

Critic reviews

Gloriously atmospheric and utterly riveting, this is my favourite Alex Michaelides yet. Readers you are in for a treat! But then what else would you expect from the undisputed master of the twist? (Lucy Foley)
Alex Michaelides hits the trifecta with his third novel, The Fury. The highly original story structure presents the reader with the king of all unreliable narrators, enough twists and turns to power two novels, and a host of characters that bleed right on the page. For fans of erudite, locked room mysteries told with style and theatrical panache, The Fury will deliver, on all counts (David Baldacci)
You'll think you know where it's going and you couldn't be more wrong (Linwood Barclay)

Slippery tale of murder & betrayal

Very Patricia Highsmith-esque, which is a huge compliment. Fantastic narration and a twisty, dark dark story about some very tricky characters. I loved it.

Not what I expected

Great narrator. There were times when I thought I will never get to the end. Quite a self consumed story.

Twists!

This links up with the other 2 books from the same author, loosely but nicely. But it’s still a story that stands out on its own. I was captivated by it.

So many twists

So much back and forth. A bit too much but very well narrated and no difficulties with changing characters. I thought I would love this book a bit more than I did.

Another clever storyline

Alex Michaelides is a wonderful story teller, not a word is wasted and I am easily drawn in, however The Fury didn't quite hit the spot and I was slightly disappointed by the denouement, simply because I had no empathy with any of the characters, which I think was quite deliberate. I am not convinced the author liked these characters either.
I had just finished The Silent Patient and I wanted The Fury to be equally gripping, I almost feel I listened to these books in the wrong order, but then the last few sentences would not have made sense.
I will read more.
