Year 16, Book 99

99. The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley

This is one of those kind of closed location murder mysteries in which someone is murdered in a remote location and you know that the murderer has to be someone else that is there. In this case you also don’t know who was actually murdered until the end either. A group of old college friends goes on a New Year’s trip to a remote hunting lodge in rural Scotland where they, an Icelandic couple, and the two proprietors of the property are the only ones there when a snow storm cuts them off from the rest of the world. Many secrets come out among this longstanding group of friends that ultimately leads to one of them losing their life. None of the characters are particularly likeable, but the plot kept me engaged and I didn’t actually figure out who did it until the book told me. I thought it was an enjoyable read if you enjoy these kinds of stories. I give it a 7 out of 10.
