The retreat

Paperback

Most are here to recharge and refresh. But someone's here for revenge . . . The addictive new thriller from the global bestselling author of The Sanatorium . ___________________________________ They couldn't wait to stay here. An idyllic wellness retreat has opened on an island off the coast of Devon, promising rest and relaxation - but the island itself, known locally as Reaper's Rock, has a dark past. Once the playground of a serial killer, it's rumored to be cursed. But now they can't leave. A woman is found dead below the yoga pavilion in what seems to be a tragic fall. But DS Elin Warner soon learns that the victim wasn't a guest - she wasn't meant to be on the island at all. And they would do anything to escape... The longer Elin stays, the more secrets she uncovers. And when someone else drowns in a diving incident, Elin begins to suspect that the old stories about the island are true. Because history seems to be repeating itself - and the guests might not make it home alive... ___________________________________ 'Pearse goes from strength to strength in The Retreat . The suspense inexorably builds to a stunning climax. An added treat is the return of Elin Warner, who is a fascinating character one can only root for.' David Baldacci, No.1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Mercy 'A world-class thriller writer. Superb. Pre-order it now. ' Steve Cavanagh, Sunday Times bestselling author of Thirteen 'The Retreat recalls the one-by-one-by-one nerve-shredding of Agatha Christie at her darkest. A fresh, daring, irresistible thriller.' A. J. Finn, No.1 Sunday Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window 'A eerie, atmospheric thriller that will have you looking over your shoulder as you read. A wonderfully chilling story of grief, revenge, and family secrets. An absorbing escape!' Ashley Audrain, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Push 'Full of foreboding and high-stakes tension, Sarah Pearse's latest is a page-turner. The past doesn't stay buried for long, at sea or on land, and what comes to the surface is both shocking and chilling.' Nita Prose, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Maid ___________________________________ PRAISE FOR SARAH PEARSE: 'This spine-tingling, atmospheric thriller has it all . . . A must-read.' Richard Osman, bestselling author of The Thursday Murder Club 'An absolutely splendid Gothic thriller.' A. J. Finn, bestselling author of The Woman in the Window 'An addictive, creepy and twisting read.' Stylist 'Dark, suspenseful and downright chilling . . . it had me on the edge of my seat from the first page.' Sally Hepworth, author of The Mother-in-Law 'A mix of whodunnit and psychological thriller with hints of horror, this fine debut [...] is smartly structured and often powerful.' Sunday Times 'A chillingly vivid thriller in a fantastic setting.' T M Logan, bestselling author of The Holiday 'A menacing, creepy debut [...] echoes of Hitchcock and du Maurier.' Daily Mail 'An eerie atmospheric novel that had me completely on the edge of my seat.' Reese Witherspoon, for Reese's Book Club
