My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Harvey Keill, ex-manager of the Ladykillers, arranges a reunion for the band on a remote island getting them together after fifteen years. But when the band and the other guests arrive Harvey is nowhere to be found.

When a video is shown the group begins to wonder just why they have been brought to this remote location. The video reminds the group of a death that happened during the band’s party days that ended with all of those gathered having some part of the conspiracy to cover it up.

Endgame by Jeffrey Round is a modern retelling of And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. I haven’t read the original so I can’t say how it really compares to that particular book but I did get the sense that this is similar to other stories, television shows or movies I’ve seen through the years.

In this book this aging punk rock band is brought back together and reminded of a dark incident that happened in their past. The cast of characters then find themselves slowly being picked off one by one with no way of getting help.

Overall, it was an engaging read as you go along wondering which of those trapped on the island could be the murderer and who would be the next victim.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
