This instant New York Times bestseller and “claustrophobic spine-tingler” (People) from Ruth Ware follows a group of employees trapped on a snow-covered mountain.

Getting snowed in at a luxurious, rustic ski chalet high in the French Alps doesn’t sound like the worst problem in the world. Especially when there’s a breathtaking vista, a full-service chef and housekeeper, a cozy fire to keep you warm, and others to keep you company. Unless that company happens to be eight coworkers…each with something to gain, something to lose, and something to hide.

When the cofounder of Snoop, a trendy London-based tech start-up, organizes a weeklong trip for the team in the French Alps, it starts out as a corporate retreat like any other: presentations and strategy sessions broken up by mandatory bonding on the slopes. But as soon as one shareholder upends the agenda by pushing a lucrative but contentious buyout offer, tensions simmer and loyalties are tested. The storm brewing inside the chalet is no match for the one outside, however, and a devastating avalanche leaves the group cut off from all access to the outside world. Even worse, one Snooper hadn’t made it back from the slopes when the avalanche hit.

As each hour passes without any sign of rescue, panic mounts, the chalet grows colder, and the group dwindles further…one by one.

Soooo booorrrriinnggg. Was expecting so much more. I know I'm in the minority here but seriously NOTHING happened for at least 2 1/2 hours in. And then when it finally did, it drug out for the entire rest of the book. Would not recommend.

This is the best of all the Ruth Ware audiobooks. it is a suspenseful, keep you on the edge of your seat mystery with great characters. The reading by Imogen Church nails it also!

I love Ruth Ware's stories, but I need to build a bunker for all the f-bombs. Ridiculously overdone. But I love Imogen Church and I'm glad she reads all of Ruth's books (at least the ones I've listened to).

Entertaining but incredibly suspenseful? No. There’s an array of characters but you never get to know them in depth, maybe that is not the point but think it would have made the narrative richer.

It kept me in suspense the entire time.

I enjoy a thriller where I can’t figure out who did it right away — and this was one where it took me awhile to catch on! I love the guessing game and being shocked when I finally figure it out. Additionally, the narrator is 10/10 — Imogen Church is incredible.

Love Ruth Ware books. Enjoy that this doesn't quite follow her regular plot lines. And of course I don't think her books would be as fun if it wasn't for Imogen Church narration.

love this reader, female version of Dick far the best reader out there...still listening to story...gets a little slow, redundant at end, but Imogen keeps you there, in the story with the characters with her sometimes, breathy voice...i can see her breath in the cold chalet...

An hour too long. The mystery is resolved but the author continues on for an hour with unnecessary information.

I didn’t really get to know the characters. The story is way too long. Would not recommend

I love Ruth Ware’s books and this one was no exception. The characters were well-developed with a good, suspenseful plot. The location of the chalet in the midst of an avalanche was great; the brutal cold almost felt like another character moving among the guests. Imogen Church narrates all Ware’s books and she is a fantastic narrator. I highly recommend this one!
