Who will be left? One by One

by Ruth Ware

Ruth Ware has written a number of thrillers by now but this is the first that I have read. I can definitely see why her books are popular.

It is impossible, in my opinion, to read this novel without being reminded of Agatha Christie’s novel And Then There Were None. This is an update for our current time. It is filled with the au courant from the from the opening page which features the About Us page from the Snoop company website. Characters are brought to a location from which they cannot leave and people begin to die. This vintage trope is well handled by Ms. Ware.

Fans of locked room mysteries, give this one a look!

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.

Editorial comments:

“Especially timely, given that the terror of isolation is at its heart…This is And Then There Were None rendered for the twenty-first century.” —Booklist (starred review) “Tempestuous…a claustrophobic, adrenaline-fueled cat-and-mouse game.” —Publishers Weekly “Hilarious, well plotted, and vintage Ware, this one is not to be missed.” —CrimeReads “Ruth Ware’s Hitchcockian thrillers have yet to disappoint.” —PopSugar
