Description


"Sharp, stylish and stunning...Foley's best yet." -- Chris Whitaker, New York Times bestselling author of We Begin at the End

"Everything you want in a thriller." -- Harper's Bazaar

The deliciously twisty new locked room murder mystery from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Guest List and The Paris Apartment

It’s the opening night of The Manor, and no expense, small or large, has been spared. The infinity pool sparkles; crystal pouches for guests’ healing have been placed in the Seaside Cottages and Woodland Hutches; the “Manor Mule” cocktail (grapefruit, ginger, vodka, and a dash of CBD oil) is being poured with a heavy hand. Everyone is wearing linen.

And yet, just outside the Manor’s immaculately kept grounds, an ancient forest bristles with secrets. The local community resents what they see as the Manor’s intrusion into the local woods and attempts to privatize the beach, and small skirmishes have erupted on the edges of the property between locals and the staff. And the whispers keep coming, about an old piece of pagan folklore – it must be folklore?? -- the Night Birds, an avenging force that can be called upon to make right wrongs that elude the law. Though surely everything at the Manor has been done above board.

On the Sunday morning of opening weekend, the local police are called. There’s been a fire. A body’s been discovered. Something’s not right with the guests. What happened on the grounds of the Manor the past 36 hours? And who – or what – is the cause?

THE FOUNDER

THE HUSBAND

THE MYSTERY GUEST

THE KITCHEN HELP

Everyone has an agenda. Everyone has a past. But not everyone will survive…The Midnight Feast.

"A sharp, stylish and stunning murder mystery. Darkly funny, with trademark twists and unforgettable characters, The Midnight Feast is Lucy Foley's best yet." — Chris Whitaker, New York Times bestselling author of We Begin at the End

"An atmospheric, tantalizing thriller peopled with utterly recognizable characters, all of them hiding something about themselves and their connection to the eerie Manor hotel in Dorset." — Nita Prose, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Maid and The Mystery Guest

"Thriller fans rejoice: Lucy Foley is back with another fantastic novel. I devoured The Midnight Feast with a smile on my face. Rarely has murder been so much wicked fun. It has everything you want from a Lucy Foley thriller: a glamorous location, an entertaining cast of characters brought to life with a terrific sense of humor, an undercurrent of witchy menace -- and an unsolved murder. This is the perfect book to take on holiday. Just count yourself lucky you’re not staying at The Manor…" — Alex Michaelides
