A fresh new take on Agatha Christie´s classic murder mystery The Mysterious Affair at Styles, with iconic detective Hercule Poirot recast as a brilliant, brash teen girl named Holiday, and narrated by her childhood friend Linden, an athlete-scholar who fits right in at his elite New England prep school-all the while hiding some secrets of his own.
Michael Linden-or just Linden to his preppy boarding school pals-doesn´t belong in wealthy, storied Martha´s Vineyard. But when his roommate Jasper invites him to spend the end of summer at his massive beachfront home, August House, Linden tries his best to fit in. Linden wouldn´t call it lying, exactly. Though it turns out August House is full of liars.
Then someone is found unconscious in Jasper´s pool, and everyone has something to hide-Jasper, his beautiful sister Eliza, their older brother Wells, and their friends. The accident is written off as just that-an accident-but Linden begins to wonder...
Enter: Holiday Proctor. Linden´s childhood friend, and the one person on the island who knows the truth about Linden. There´s nothing Holiday loves more than a good old-fashioned mystery and she´s convinced there´s a potential killer on the Vineyard. The only question is…who?
