BLOG TOUR - The Party at No. 12


Everyone’s invited. Someone will never leave.

In a grand townhouse rented specially for the evening, Hannah beams at her guests under the sparkling chandelier. Her sisters, her mother and aunt, her best friends… although she’ll miss them all so much when she moves away, tonight is about celebrating the happy times and raising a toast to the future.

But the next morning, one of the guests is found cold and lifeless in their pristine white bed.

Hannah is desperate to call the police. After all, it must have been an accident. Perhaps too much wine, on a night where emotions were running high. But it soon becomes clear that every single person at the partyhas something to hide.

A mother who’ll do anything for her daughters.
Best friends with dark secrets between them.
A sister with a jealous streak.

What if one of them is a killer?

And what if this is just the first victim?

An absolutely unputdownable thriller that won’t let you sleep until you’ve reached the final page! Perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell, The Hunting Party and Shari Lapena.

Title:   The Party at No. 12

Publisher:  Bookouture 
Genre:   Psychological Thriller 
Format:  Kindle ARC
No. of Pages:   304
Date of Publication:   March 11, 2022
My Rating:   4 Stars 

Hannah’s going away party will not soon be forgotten. The location of the party is deluxe house with everything needed to aid in good entertainment. After a fun night, Hannah and the other guests discover that one of them is dead. Her name was Catherine and the mystery begins. 

They choose not to go to the police. Every single one of them has something to hide so they are determined to handle things themselves, even to the point of covering up evidence. Part of the evidence they are determined to hide is that the Ecstasy was available at the party. Catherine wasn't alone when it came to taking it, yet she is the only one who ended up dead. 

Fast pacing and multiple POVs bring this intense story by Wilkinson to life. Catherine had someone on her side, someone who pushed for answers. It is this layer of the story that ratchets up the tension in this thrilling book tenfold.  While the reader knows a lot about what will happen in this story, this talented author threw in perfect twists and turns so as to keep the reader guessing. 

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.


Kerry Wilkinson is from the English county of Somerset but has spent far too long living in the north. It’s there that he’s picked up possibly made-up regional words like ‘barm’ and ‘ginnel’. He pretends to know what they mean.

He’s also been busy since turning thirty: his Jessica Daniel crime series has sold more than a million copies in the UK; he has written a fantasy-adventure trilogy for young adults; a second crime series featuring private investigator Andrew Hunter and the standalone thriller, Down Among The Dead Men.
