Totally original and utterly compelling, with a voice all of its own, this is the outstanding new thriller from the no.1 internationally bestselling author of The Silent Patient, Alex Michaelides.
'There were seven of us in all, trapped on the island. One of us was a murderer . . .'
On a small private Greek island, former movie star Lana Farrar - an old friend - invites a select group of us to stay.
It'll be hot, sunny, perfect. A chance to relax and reconnect - and maybe for a few hidden truths to come out.
Because nothing on this island is quite what it seems.
Not Lana. Not her guests.
Certainly not the murderer - furiously plotting their crime . . .
But who am I?
My name is Elliot Chase, and I'm going to tell you a story unlike any you've ever heard.
PRAISE FOR ALEX MICHAELIDES
'A deliciously dark, elegant, utterly compulsive read - with a twist that blew my mind' Lucy Foley
'I read it in two nights and savoured every luscious word, every grim encounter, every startling twist' David Baldacci
'The perfect thriller. I quite literally couldn't put it down' A. J. Finn
'One of the best psychological thrillers I have ever read... one of the most shocking, mind-blowing twists in recent memory' Blake Crouch
'Absolutely brilliant . . . I read it in a state of intense, breathless excitement' Stephen Fry
"The king of all unreliable narrators, [with] enough twists and turns to power two novels" DAVID BALDACCI
"A proper, grown-up thriller that exudes class from every page... A very special book" JANICE HALLETT
"A classic, twisting, brilliant murder mystery. Clever, and fiendishly fun" CHRIS WHITAKER
"This is a masterclass in suspense. A unique and captivating narrator takes you on a journey filled with twists and finely drawn characters you will treasure. This is probably his best book. Not to be missed."
"Mesmerising – a beguiling labyrinth of twists and surprises, even better than THE SILENT PATIENT. THE FURY is THE MAGUS meets THE SECRET HISTORY on a Greek island paradise where nothing is as it seems, and Alex Michaelides is a master magician, skilfully misdirecting the reader at every turn"
"The Fury, like its beguiling narrator, is endlessly evolving, wildly entertaining, and like the very best fiction, impossible to pin down. Just when you think you have it cornered, it moves, impossibly and with stunning flourish, toward a devastating finale. The Talented Mr. Ripley for our time"
“You’ll think you know where it’s going and you couldn’t be more wrong.”
"A very sophisticated book which takes the format of a classic murder mystery and elevates it to something very devious and clever indeed. The narrator is fabulous - I was thoroughly gripped by his voice and it seems to have been written with great glee. There’s such a tremendous complicity to it even though the reader has no idea how much of what he’s telling is true, even down to the final pages. The way it reveals itself through the layers of the narrative is very well done indeed."
