'A gripping page-turner ... will make you gasp' Catherine Ryan Howard

'I couldn't put it down' Andrea Mara


She said yes to a dinner invitation. Now she's a murder suspect ...

Returning to her alma mater and memories of her youth is the last thing Finn Fitzpatrick wants to do right now. But when a former classmate invites her to speak at a university conference, Finn feels she can't say no. Even though she has no idea why she's been included among such high-profile guests, or
invited to the exclusive dinner in the College president's private dining room afterwards.

Then, three days later, a body is discovered in the College grounds, and everyone who was at the president's
dinner falls under suspicion.

Soon, Finn is deeply embroiled in the murder investigation. But as she looks more closely into her fellow dinner guests, behind their success she unearths a slew of damaging secrets, bitter rivalries and hidden agendas. Will Finn let sleeping dogs lie, or risk it all to uncover the truth?
