Review Quotes

"McKay keeps things ambiguous so that readers will continue guessing until the true culprit is revealed in the climactic scene. Her witty, self-deprecating voice captures the thrill of belonging and the complicated emotions that come with new money. Smart, edge-of-the-seat thrills." - Kirkus Reviews

"Umfraville Hall, an exclusive boarding school on the windswept Welsh island of Skola, is an ideal setting for a mystery that takes a few cues from Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None... McKay (Undead) pokes a bit of fun at teen angst, using Cate's wry voice to tell this twisty whodunit.
