ONE BY ONE by Ruth Ware
One by One, the latest thriller from Ruth Ware
The creators and business people behind the app Snoop hold a business retreat at an Alpine chalet. Snoop is an app where you can listen to the music that other people are listening to in real time. Like a lurker.
One by One develops through dual narrators. Liz, a former employee of Snoop and Erin, who is an employee of the chalet. They serve as our eyes and ears in figuring out the crimes, but each have their own secrets that seep out as the book develops.
Motives and opportunities abound for all involved as Snoop employees begin to turn up missing or dead..one by one.
Tension and suspense gets ratcheted up by the growing isolation from the avalanche, less and less people still alive, and systems that begin to fail and shut down. (Internet, phone, electricity and heat)
The disclosures keep coming from the victims even after the killer is revealed.
People compare Ruth Ware to Agatha Christie, but she is in a league of her own with these “locked door mysteries.”
Thank you NetGalley and Simon & Schuster/Gallery Books for the ARC.
