"Are you a Nicci French fan? Then read The Dinner Club. "-- Beau Monde
"A thrilling read."-- De Telegraaf
"An exciting novel that is also a morality tale laced with biting satire."-- Het Parool
When Evert dies in his burning villa, everything points to suicide. The other members of the "dinner club," a group of five women who meet regularly and whose husbands do business together, rally around to support Babette, his grieving widow. But events soon spiral out of control. Within weeks, a member of the club falls from the balcony of a hotel and dies. Something is poisoning their smug world of flashy SUVs, coffee mornings, and wine-filled evenings and bringing death in itswake.
This is a high-spirited, sexy, and ingeniously plotted tale about people desperate to hang on to the trappings of success--at any cost.
Imagine Desperate Housewives scripted by Patricia Highsmith. That's The Dinner Club.
