A twisty psychological thriller set in an isolated beach-house on the wild Scottish West coast, where sins of the past come to visit the present . . .
This is the story of three days last September when eight old friends gathered in a beautiful house by the sea. There was food, wine and laughter, and then the friends went their separate ways. That's the truth and nothing but the truth.
Or is it?
Donna Weaver has put everything into The Breakers. Now it waits - freshly painted, richly furnished, filled with flowers - for the first guests to arrive.
But as they roll up, each one discovers they've been here before. Twenty-five years ago. When a party that started with peach schnapps and Postman's Knock ended with a girl walking into the sea and the rest of them making a vow of silence: lock it in a box, stitch my lips and go to my grave.
But one of them has broken the pact.
And before the weekend is over, someone will have gone to their grave.
