1. The Final Party centres on three couples gathering in a luxury villa high in the hills above the chic town of Sorrento, Italy, for the perfect 40th birthday celebration.

2. I’ve always wanted to write a thriller set abroad, particularly somewhere I’m familiar with because it’s lovely to be able to use my own experience of a setting to convey that unique sense of authenticity. It’s also nice to think I’ve transported my readers away from mundane reality to a beautiful location, especially in the colder months when we’re all feeling the winter blues and desperate for an escape to somewhere hot and heavenly.
