During the languid days of the Christmas break, a group of thirtysomething friends from Oxford meet to welcome in the New Year together, a tradition they began as students ten years ago. For this vacation, they've chosen an idyllic and isolated estate in the Scottish Highlands--the perfect place to get away and unwind by themselves. They arrive on December 30th, just before a historic blizzard seals the lodge off from the outside world. But after a decade, the weight of secret resentments has grown too heavy for the group's tenuous nostalgia to bear. Amid the boisterous revelry of New Year's Eve, the cord holding them together snaps. On New Year's Day, one of them is dead, and another of them did it.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Ever since college, these nine friends have remained close. This year, only eight of them will go home from their New Years' party...Plot, reasonably clever. Setting, nicely done. Characters, two-dimensional stereotypes, but you can't have everything. (Kirkus Review)
