This felt like an American Pie reunion, 30yrs later! With a dark streak running below the surface! I enjoyed the introduction to the group of friends, lost some interest somewhere in the middle – but when it all came together at the end I saw that every chapter was needed. My eyes watered and a lump formed in my throat at the revelations at the end. Very powerful indeed.
When the group of men get together for their annual trip, (minus Will) they don’t think for one moment that this will be the last time they will probably ever be in the same room as one another, let alone on the same weekend break.
Wills’ famous game of Brainmelter has been organised from beyond the grave. They are about to find out things about their lifelong friends that they never dreamed of!
An enjoyable read over all. Sitting comfortably between a soft thriller and contemporary fiction, with a whole lot of humour. And a touching message thoughout.
