Review: They All Fall Down

They All Fall Down They All Fall Down by Rachel Howzell Hall
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Seven strangers, each with their own secrets, accept an invitation to spend a weekend at a luxurious mansion on a remote island.

What could possibly go wrong?

This is a very solid and entertaining mystery/thriller that does an interesting modern take on an Agatha Christie style novel. What really makes it hum is that our first person narrator, Miriam, is obviously not reliable, and it's obvious from the jump that she has some serious issues even as she struggles to put on a brave face and delude herself into believing that this is her chance to turn her life around.

Good stuff. I'll check out some of the author's work in the near future. 3 1/2 stars.
