The Search Party

(2020)
A novel by

 
 
A twisty, electrifying new thriller from the author of The New Neighbors and The Liar's Room...
 
The entire town thinks sixteen-year-old Sadie Saunders is dead. Missing now for a week, they say she was murdered. And they think they know who did it.

Sadie's five best friends aren’t so sure, and they vow to find out the truth. So they pack their bags and head into the woods where Sadie was last seen.

But they’re not just friends, they’re suspects. And each of them has a secret.
 
As the landscape opens up, and the darkness closes in, the reality of their situation becomes clear…

This was never really a search party.
    
It’s a witch hunt.

And not everyone will make it home alive.

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"A chillingly complex, well-crafted web. The voices cry out from Simon Lelic's pages as if they are standing right next to you." - Jane Corry

"Clever and atmospheric, with shades of Stand By Me." - Mark Edwards

"A brilliantly tense tale of teenage frustration, lost souls, and sibling love, with an atmosphere as tense as the end of summer storm that threatens throughout the book. Plus a whirlwind of an ending that's like riding a rollercoaster." - Araminta Hall

"I've spent every free moment of the last few days feasting on The Search Party...a bloody good read and the very definition of unpredictable. Twisty, creepy, brilliantly paced, and with a denouement I never saw coming." - John Marrs
