Daisy Darker, by Alice Feeney

Cover of Daisy Darker, by Alice Feeney.

After years of avoiding one another, Daisy Darker’s family is assembling for Nana’s 80th birthday in Nana’s crumbling gothic house on a tiny island, and when the tide comes in they will be cut off from the rest of the world for 8 hours. The family arrives then at the stroke of midnight as a storm rages, Nana is found dead. An hour later, the next family member follows.

Feeney has created something both entirely creepy and completely riveting. So many secrets – a thrilling locked-room mystery. Utterly compelling writing.
