The Last Resort by Susi Holliday

We are so excited to share the news that The Last Resort by Susi Holliday is our latest pick for the HIF Book Of the Month!

The latest novel from best-selling author Susi Holliday is yet another gripping story, following in the success of her previous book, Violet. 

About the book:

Seven strangers. Seven secrets. One perfect crime.

When Amelia is invited to an all-expenses-paid retreat on a private island, the mysterious offer is too good to refuse. Along with six other strangers from the worlds of tech, banking, social media and journalism, she’s told that they are here to test a brand-new product for Timeo Technologies. But the guests’ excitement soon turns to terror when the real reason for their summons becomes clear.

Each guest has a guilty secret. When the software they’re testing turns out to be a memory-tracking device that reveals their dark and shameful deeds to their fellow guests, there’s no hiding from the past. This is no luxury retreat—it’s a trap they can’t escape.

As the shocking secrets emerge, injuries, suspicions and infighting split the group. With no escape from the island, and with the other guests’ crimes ringing in her ears, can Amelia confront her own dark past to uncover the truth—before it ’s too late to get out?

Praise for The Last Resort:

‘My god, what a ride! Shades of Jurassic Park, Total Recall & Shutter Island, played out over a dystopian tech paradise-turned-hellscape where you can’t trust anyone – and least of all your own mind. Couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.’
Rod Reynolds

‘Superb. A chilling island-set thriller for fans of Black Mirror and Agatha Christie.’
Mark Edwards

‘What a trip! I love how Holliday writes, unafraid to mix genres, to go off the beaten track … Another‘like nothing you’ve read’ thriller from one of my fave writers.’
Louise Beech
