    A weekend getaway among friends becomes an occasion for murder in this “entertaining tantalizer” of a whodunit (Kirkus Reviews).   Eccentric brothers Frank and George Faulkner are hosting a weekend house party at the legendary Ravensmoor estate. The guests include a pair of struggling newlyweds, a brutal criminal attorney, a fading chorus girl, and a freeloading couple who live off the fat of their friends. All of them are acquaintances save for a mousy stranger who’s more shadow than man.   Then, one by one, each visitor makes the same startling discovery: George’s corpse snuggled under the covers of his bed. It could’ve been another of his tasteless practical jokes—if not for the gaping wound in his neck. Why everyone’s been assembled to partake in a murder is only the first mystery. Because the party at Ravensmoor is just getting started . . .

    International bestselling author Campbell Armstrong sweeps readers back to the psychedelic sixties in an atmospheric, page-turning thriller about a fugitive ex-hippie who must run for his life when he is caught up in a political conspiracy  Many years ago, Harry Tennant managed to escape San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury hippie scene relatively intact, although his memory of that time is largely wiped out. Now Harry’s peaceful life is overturned when his upstate–New York marijuana farm is raided by the police and he’s thrown in jail.   Released on bail, Harry is contacted by Alison Seagrove, a reporter investigating a conspiracy connected to Harry’s hazy past. When she shows him an old photo of himself and four others, Harry barely recognizes himself and can’t remember his friends’ names—or why the photograph has global political implications. To avoid prison and stay one step ahead of the killers pursuing him, Harry undertakes a chilling journey back to Haight-Ashbury to unlock the mystery behind his shattered memory.
