Six friends trapped by one dark secret.
It was supposed to be our last weekend away as friends, before marriage and respectability beckoned. But what happened that Saturday changed everything.
In the middle of the night, someone died. The six of us promised each other we would not tell anyone about the body we buried. But now the pact has been broken. And the killing has started again …
Who knows what we did? And what price will we pay?
This is my first read by Luca Veste , The Six, and what a cracker it is!
When Six friends go to a music festival, their last big party before accepting adulthood has arrived, something inexplicable happens to them which changes the course of their lives forever. Someone dies, and on their hands is the blood, making a promise to tell no one, they cover up the killing and attempt to go about their usual lives.
Spin forward a year and with the anniversary of what they did coming fast, the story takes us to the present day where tragedy has struck and on the six has died, committing suicide... or did he?
Matt begins looking into both the death of his friend while trying to piece together what happened on that dark night nearly a year ago..
With the friendships fracturing, Luca Veste writes a brilliant tale, of desperation and survival, delving into the human psyche and what lengths people will go to for self-preservation.
A serial killer thriller with a very different and clever take, not an idea I’ve read before and I loved it. Going back into the 90s, we learn how 'The Six' came together and what shaped them today,
With references to the music and culture of the 90s, the protagonists in this book are the same age as me so it was like being taken back to being a teenager.
This is a brilliant, compelling and gripping take on a murder mystery, pulling you one way while you think you knows whats coming, the ending is as shocking as you would expect.
Luca Veste is definitely an author I’ll be reading more of very soon.
Thanks to Simon & Schuster and netgalley for my e-ARC in exchange for my honest review.
