Bright and deadly things

Elliott, Lexie2023
Books, Manuscripts
A remote back-to-basics mountaintop retreat in the French Alps turns deadly as a widowed Oxford fellow finds herself in the crosshairs of her late husband's dangerous secrets. Following the death of her husband, Emily is happy to find herself surrounded by friends and fellow Oxford peers at the rustic Chalet des Anglais in the French Alps. With no electricity, running water, or access by car, surely this trip will offer Emily the time and space she needs to heal. But before she makes it to the airport, Emily interrupts a break-in at her home, and on the first night at the chalet, she discovers an inappropriate sexual liaison between an undergrad and a colleague. When the undergraduate student suddenly disappears, and Emily sees her deceased husband's number in her call history, she realizes she had better figure out who she can trust - or the next disappearance may be her own.
