Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

An utterly addictive and twisty thriller, full of dark family secrets and deadly stakes. Perfect for fans of One of Us Is Lying and Knives Out.

She came from nothing.

Avery has a plan: keep her head down, work hard for a better future. Then an eccentric billionaire dies, leaving her almost his entire fortune. And no one, least of all Avery, knows why.

They had everything.

Now she must move into the mansion she's inherited. It's filled with secrets and codes and the old man's surviving relatives - a family hell-bent on discovering why Avery got 'their' money.

Now there's only one rule: winner takes all.

Soon she is caught in a deadly game that everyone in this strange family is playing. But just how far will they go to keep their fortune?

A good read

Interesting idea that holds your attention but any drama is anticlimactic. A little disappointed with the ending. Not a bad read overall but could have been better

I was disappointed honestly

Okay so you’re given billions of dollars, and all you can think about is how hot some guys are... really... I like the idea of the puzzles... but even so... this book could have been so much more.

excellent narrator , engaging story ,,however

the narrator did great job,
good thing the chapters were short , and the story moved fast, however
after 80% i got bored,
and i didn't like the romance or the past story of the brothers.

the ending was interesting.
i want to see more of xander .

3.5 Stars - Good but had untapped potential

I loved the idea but I felt the events could have been a bit darker. I will definitely give the second book a go but I will be disappointed if it's just more of the same.
I found the ending a bit anti-climatic.
Fantastic narration, Christie's voice was right for the book and her dramatisation of the story was perfect.
