The Traitors


By C. A. Lynch


In 1996 Beechwood Castle was the scene of a horrific massacre in which several young people lost their lives. One person, Lolly, survived but the killer was never found. Twenty-seven years later six people find an envelope on their doorstep containing an invitation to spend 24 hours inside Beechwood Castle to win a share of one million dollars. One of them is Lolly. But all is not as it seems — one of the six guests is an imposter and all of them are traitors. Not everyone will survive the night. . .  

I love a good locked room mystery so The Traitors was right up my alley. With a creepy and foreboding atmosphere, I read the entire book with a tightly wound knot in my stomach. I was constantly on edge anticipating things going bump in the night. Told through each guest's point of view, their background stories came to life. Although a relatively short book, the author got the pacing exactly right. I thought it was an enjoyable, quick and easy read.

You are cordially invited to the Beechwood Castle for a night you’ll never forget…

Six people find a thick cream envelope on their doorstep. Inside is an invitation to spend 24 hours in a crumbling manor house and be in with the chance to win a portion of one million dollars. The catch: Beechwood Castle was the site of one of the most horrific murders in modern history.

The smell of blood, decay and death still hangs heavy in the air.

Six people walk into the house. One of them is an imposter, all of them are traitors, which of them will survive the night?
