“A claustrophobic spine-tingler.” —People
“Not only do Ware’s novels wink at [Agatha] Christie in a saucy way, but Ware herself is turning out to be as ingenious and indefatigable as the Queen of Crime.” —The Washington Post

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Turn of the Key and In a Dark, Dark Wood returns with another suspenseful thriller set on a snow-covered mountain.

Getting snowed in at a luxurious, rustic ski chalet high in the French Alps doesn’t sound like the worst problem in the world. Especially when there’s a breathtaking vista, a full-service chef and housekeeper, a cozy fire to keep you warm, and others to keep you company. Unless that company happens to be eight coworkers…each with something to gain, something to lose, and something to hide.

When the cofounder of Snoop, a trendy London-based tech start-up, organizes a weeklong trip for the team in the French Alps, it starts out as a corporate retreat like any other: PowerPoint presentations and strategy sessions broken up by mandatory bonding on the slopes. But as soon as one shareholder upends the agenda by pushing a lucrative but contentious buyout offer, tensions simmer and loyalties are tested. The storm brewing inside the chalet is no match for the one outside, however, and a devastating avalanche leaves the group cut off from all access to the outside world. Even worse, one Snooper hadn’t made it back from the slopes when the avalanche hit.

As each hour passes without any sign of rescue, panic mounts, the chalet grows colder, and the group dwindles further…one by one.

    I love Ruth Ware's stories, but I need to build a bunker for all the f-bombs. Ridiculously overdone. But I love Imogen Church and I'm glad she reads all of Ruth's books (at least the ones I've listened to).

  • Brianna O.

    Love Ruth Ware and Imogen Church!

  • Norma S.

    Entertaining but incredibly suspenseful? No. There’s an array of characters but you never get to know them in depth, maybe that is not the point but think it would have made the narrative richer.

  • Anonymous

    It kept me in suspense the entire time.

  • Anonymous

    Kept me guessing for quite awhile!!

  • Savannah J.

    I enjoy a thriller where I can’t figure out who did it right away — and this was one where it took me awhile to catch on! I love the guessing game and being shocked when I finally figure it out. Additionally, the narrator is 10/10 — Imogen Church is incredible.

  • Diane G.

    Love Ruth Ware books. Enjoy that this doesn't quite follow her regular plot lines. And of course I don't think her books would be as fun if it wasn't for Imogen Church narration.

  • Julie S.

    Ruth Ware and Imogen Church are an award winning combination! Another brilliantly written novel performed by a master!

  • Regina S.

    love this reader, female version of Dick far the best reader out there...still listening to story...gets a little slow, redundant at end, but Imogen keeps you there, in the story with the characters with her sometimes, breathy voice...i can see her breath in the cold chalet...

  • Angela F.

    An hour too long. The mystery is resolved but the author continues on for an hour with unnecessary information.
