Lucy Foley is the No.1 Sunday Times and Irish Times bestselling author of The Hunting Party and three other novels.
A trip to Connemara, from where half of Lucy’s family hail, on the west coast of Ireland sparked the idea for her latest book. Struck by the wild, rugged
beauty of the islands off its shores – the perfect setting for a wedding, yet dangerously cut- off – Lucy began to plot a new murder mystery. An island with no escape, old friends and family reuniting, emotions running high. What could possible go wrong? And so The Guest List came to life.
Previously a fiction editor in the publishing industry, Lucy now writes full time. Her novels have been translated into nineteen languages and her journalism has appeared in publications such as Sunday Times Style, Grazia, ES Magazine, Vogue US, Elle, Tatler and Marie Claire.
Fresh from the bestselling success of the former Waterstones Thriller of the Month, The Hunting Party, Foley treats us to another closed community whodunit, set this time at a glamorous wedding on a remote island. Lean, pacy and terrifically twisty, The Guest List is a good, old-fashioned whodunit in distinctly twenty-first century trappings.
