Foley Lucy

The Guest List

HarperCollins, London 2020


Lucy Foley is another fiction editor who began writing fiction equipped with all the experience she gained from editing other authors`books. She puts all this experience into practise and designs a well planned intricate plot of suspicion and evil set on a remote west Irish island, very Agatha Christie like.

The story is told by several first person points of view, going forth and back in time. All is centered around a posh wedding on this small deserted island. The weather plays a prominent role, too.

A whodunnit full of suspense, well told, but not very original.
