Fiction. Literature. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:This instant New York Times bestseller and "claustrophobic spine-tingler" (People) from Ruth Ware follows a group of employees trapped on a snow-covered mountain.
Getting snowed in at a luxurious, rustic ski chalet high in the French Alps doesn't sound like the worst problem in the world. Especially when there's a breathtaking vista, a full-service chef and housekeeper, a cozy fire to keep you warm, and others to keep you company. Unless that company happens to be eight coworkers...each with something to gain, something to lose, and something to hide.

When the cofounder of Snoop, a trendy London-based tech start-up, organizes a weeklong trip for the team in the French Alps, it starts out as a corporate retreat like any other: presentations and strategy sessions broken up by mandatory bonding on the slopes. But as soon as one shareholder upends the agenda by pushing a lucrative but contentious buyout offer, tensions simmer and loyalties are tested. The storm brewing inside the chalet is no match for the one outside, however, and a devastating avalanche leaves the group cut off from all access to the outside world. Even worse, one Snooper hadn't made it back from the slopes when the avalanche hit.

As each hour passes without any sign of rescue, panic mounts, the chalet grows colder, and the group dwindles further...one by one.

I almost DNF’d this so many times. Probably should have but morbid curiosity took over and I powered thru.

This was dumb. The most annoying human beings run a company that’s like Spotify for stalkers. They go on a ski retreat and they start dying. You’ll get a lot of corporate/tech exposition. You’ll learn way too much about the inner monologues of two of the characters, and you’ll get all the other characters confused because there is little to differentiate between them.

There’s 1 more Ruth Ware book on my TBR shelf and now I’ll use it as a test to see if this one was a fluke, or if I can skip any future Ware writings. ( )

Ruth Ware gives a modern twist to a classic Christie-inspired mystery in her latest thriller, ONE BY ONE. Executives of a hot up and coming tech firm called Snoop head to a remote chalet high in the Alps for a company retreat. This dream getaway of skiing, great food, and breathtaking views takes a tragic turn when an avalanche hits, trapping their party in a half-buried chalet. Their situation becomes more terrifying when guests disappear or are found dead, picked off one by one. But who among them is the killer?

This was an exciting and fast-paced thriller told in the alternating POVs of two women, Erin, a chalet employee and Liz, a guest and Snoop shareholder. I really enjoyed the chilling atmosphere of the desolate mountain after the avalanche, with those left at the chalet cut off from the rest of the world without power or WiFi, and killer on the loose.

Though there were only two narrators, there was still a large cast of characters to keep track of, and I did find myself flipping back to the beginning where each person was introduced on the “About Us” page of Snoop’s website to refresh my memory. I did love how the book also began with a news report of the tragedy, and we’re left to wonder who are the dead and who survived the “house of horror” mentioned.

ONE BY ONE is another fantastic whodunit from one of my favorite suspense authors. I’m already eagerly awaiting her next!

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. ( )

If you don't go into Ware's books with insane expectations of a masterpiece, you won't be disappointed. I don't go into them expecting Nabokov, but I still love reading her books. She delivers the same bit of a quick and easy read as the last, with interesting characters that live up to everything that you can deduce from the the way they are introduced.

This is a serious, serious spoiler. Do not click unless you want to be spoiled.

Seriously, did anyone else think "That's a little much with the owl description. Hmmm... Owls will rip you a new asshole through your intestinal wall and they'll do it silently. Welp, that's who the killer will be."

So, yeah. Loads of fun. Great action sequences on the slopes. (I think. I know nothing about skiing, so maybe it was factually horrible.) Ware writes really good heroines. She never goes overboard with the physical stuff, allowing women to overstep with upper body strength. They are always realistic. Smart, able to think their way out of trouble.

One By One is a perfect as a quick read on the beach or lazing on the couch with your favorite cat, but don't go into it expecting a great work of art. ( )

One By One (2020) by Ruth Ware. This is a suspense mystery a’la Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None (or whatever version of the title you might have read) but it doesn’t string the mystery along as far as that book did. This is a version of the locked room mystery. Instead of a body in a room, there are bodies scattered about an isolate ski chalet that has been cut off from the rest of the world by an avalanche. The chalet has been let for a week by Snoop.com for its top four people and their assistants, to relax and ski and talk about the future of this fledgeling internet company.
Or make that top ten. Everyone forgets about Liz. She’s not actually working for the company now, her days as a secretary/gopher long gone. Now she is one of five shareholders in the company, a company that could soon be with 12 million to Liz for her 2% of the shares. The rest of the shares are split between Topher and Eva (30% each), and Rik and Elliot with 19% each. The shareholders are evenly, but contentiously split between remaining private or taking a buyout offer.
Leaving Liz as the deciding vote.
It takes some time into the book before the first murder happens. Eva, a superb skier, may have skied off a most dangerous black run that was supposed to have been closed. She is soon followed by what might have been a suicide or a murder, quickly trailed by a certain murder.
Of course in a thriller the cardinal rule is: if you don’t actually see and touch and prove to yourself that a person is dead, are they really dead?
The avalanche finds this bickering group trapped in such a remote location that, thanks to the weather, has no internet, no phone reception, no land line and soon no electricity as the massive snow impact has destroyed the generator, the only source of power for the chalet.
There are two more occupants of the place: Danny the chef and Erin the all-around servant for the group. They are employed by the ski company that owns and lets a series of chalets. They begin to wonder what horror has been inflected upon them and how can they survive.
Like any good thriller, there are plots twists and turns, but not as many you might have expected. Every member of the cast has a secret, some of which are uncovered rudely, some revealed begrudgingly, and some we never do discover.
Plus there is a thrilling finale to the story that will have you enraptured.
The only downside to this thriller is the ending I’m talking about doesn’t actually come at the end of the story. Instead the book seems to putt-putt-putt along for another thirty pages or so. Those pages wrap up some loose ends but I’m not certain they actually needed wrapping up.
Overall I feel this is a very worthy read. ( )

Not my favorite Ruth Ware thriller. I loved the setting and I liked the premise but I STRONGLY disliked the dual narrative. The story unfolds between two perspectives, Erin a chalet cleaner and host and Liz, a timid guest staying at the chalet as part of a corporate retreat. The chalet is high in the alps, it's gorgeous and isolated; just what the executives of Snoop need to decide the future of their company. They've brought along one extra member though, Liz. Liz hasn't been employed in several years, but she does have a stake in the company owning 2% of the shares. She knows the co-founders are going to hem and haw and use her to be a deciding factor if they take their company public or if they sell it. When one of the co-founders goes missing after a day of skiing they are sick with worry, before they can send out a search party an avalanche traps them up in the mountains. They have no power, no reception, and soon no hope as other members of the party start to die. Who is killing off people and why? It was pretty obvious. And again, the dual narrative was not done well. I'll try another Ruth Ware though - the setting was great. ( )
