One By One

One by One by Ruth Ware

Let me start off by saying that Ruth Ware is my “safety” author; I can always trust that her

novels will entertain me and I’m glad to say “One By One” did not disappoint! It was so good that I finished it in one sitting.

This book feels similar to Agatha Christie’s acclaimed And Then There Were None - a secluded setting, morally bankrupt characters, and a murderer hiding among them. I was kept guessing right up until the final reveal (the slow revelation of who the killer actually is blew me away) and was rewarded with an extremely satisfying ending.

In One by One, Ware is continuing to cement her rightful place as the heir to the Queen of Mystery. 5 well-deserved stars!
