Productbeschrijving

Achterflaptekst

A gripping story of betrayal, privilege and hypocrisy, set in the unassailable heart of the British establishment.

Think Brideshead Revisited meets The Talented Mr Ripley with a dash of The Riot Club. I couldn't put it down Louise O Neill, author of Asking For It

Martin Gilmour and Ben Fitzmaurice have been best friends for 25 years, since their days together at Burtonbury School.

They are an unlikely pair: the scholarship boy with the wrong accent and clothes, and the dazzlingly popular, wealthy young aristocrat. But Martin knows no one else can understand the bond they share and no one else could have kept Ben s secret for over two decades.

At Ben s 40th birthday party, the cream of the British establishment gathers in a haze of champagne, drugs and glamour. Amid the politicians, the celebrities, the old money and the newly rich, Martin once again feels that pang of not quite belonging. His wife Lucy has her reservations, too. There is something unnerving in the air. But Ben wouldn t do anything to damage their friendship. Would he?

Recensie

"[Martin] makes for a deliciously untrustworthy narrator; seemingly candid, but at the same time never telling the full story, perhaps because he's so good at keeping secrets.... Brimming with betrayal, corruption and hypocrisy, The Party is a gripping page-turner."--The Guardian


"A deft thriller.... Literary flashbacks, which can be jarring or even confusing, are masterfully illuminating in The Party They tighten the tension and lead the reader naturally to the next clue or curiosity.... The Party is well-rounded and satisfying, not only as an accomplished page-turning mystery, but also for its in-depth examination of class, of marriage and friendship, and of deception, loyalty and ambition."--St. Louis Post Dispatch


"By page one of this devious, witty, thrilling book, you'll be as haplessly seduced by Ben Fitzmaurice's glamorous lifestyle as his old classmate, Martin Gilmour."--Refinery29

"Day spellbindingly spools out the evening's events.... The Party is a splendid, stunning slow burn."
--Shelf Awareness


"Day's latest novel is sinister and seductive and nothing short of breathtaking."
--Francesca Segal, author of The Innocents


"Elizabeth Day's psychological thriller, about an aristocrat's birthday party gone awry, updates Waugh, Highsmith and Fitzgerald... Day's sly fourth novel is an enticing mix of social, climbing, barely hidden list and possible crimes...THE PARTY knowingly nods toward Brideshead Revisited and The Talented Mr. Ripley. But Day refreshes their themes for an age in which the upper echelons retain their allure and their grasp on power while posing as common folk... Day's shrewd eye and authorial tone also provide a gleeful, edgy wit.... [a] smart, irresistible romp."--New York Times Book Review


"I practically murdered this book in an evening I loved it so much. THE PARTY is a terrifying, hilarious, brilliantly written original with a wit to die for."--Phoebe Waller-Bridge, creator and star of Fleabag


"In this psychological page-turner, a deeply buried secret that ties two married couples together comes to a head during one lavish 40th birthday party."--Entertainment Weekly


"Like Herman Koch co-wrote a literary page-turner with Patricia Highsmith-irresistible stuff."
--Bomb

"Rave-worthy."--Book Riot
