What happened at the barbecue?
A man invites his neighbors and their friends over to his house for a casual backyard meal. The ramifications of this invitation are powerful — as the reader slowly begins to understand. This deliciously twisted Australian novel is told from various viewpoints and not in sequential order. Suspense builds as the reader gains a deeper knowledge of the relationships among the six main characters — and that tension does not cease until the end of the novel. Fans of this book will likely enjoy Siracusa by Delia Ephron, which also features multiple storytellers and a surprise ending.
