The Search Party

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~




Synopsis (from Amazon):  A twisty, electrifying new thriller from the author of The New Neighbors and The Liar's Room...
 
The entire town thinks sixteen-year-old Sadie Saunders is dead. Missing now for a week, they say she was murdered. And they think they know who did it.

Sadie's five best friends aren’t so sure, and they vow to find out the truth. So they pack their bags and head into the woods where Sadie was last seen.

But they’re not just friends, they’re suspects. And each of them has a secret.
 
As the landscape opens up, and the darkness closes in, the reality of their situation becomes clear…

This was never really a search party.
    
It’s a witch hunt.

And not everyone will make it home alive.


One (or more) Sentence Summary: Five kids in the woods looking for a lost friend.....can't be a good thing.  I knew something bad was going to happen, but wow.  Everyone has their own reason story and history with the victim Sadie.  Don't read while on a camping trip, unless you don't spook easily!

Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  This was my first read by Simon Lelic.  There are a lot of other books to choose from and all look like great reads!



Simon Lelic is the author of The New Neighbors, A Thousand Cuts (winner of a Betty Trask Award and shortlisted for the John Creasy New Blood Dagger), The Facility and The Child Who (longlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger and CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger 2012). 

The New Neighbors is his first psychological thriller, inspired by a love of Alfred Hitchcock and Stephen King.
