What would you do if you were invited to an exclusive party and then found out that the guest list was a lie? In Lucy Foley’s The Guest List, four friends are about to discover just how dangerous high society can be. When Emily receives an invitation to a glamorous cocktail party at the home of London’s most influential art dealer, she immediately wants her three best friends from college—Fiona, Jess, and Matt—to experience it with her. But as they arrive at the housewarming party for Damien Hirst hosted by his equally reclusive gallerist girlfriend Annabelle Lee, they soon realize that this is not your average get-together. Everyone in attendance is either famous or infamous; somehow they’ve all managed to make it onto Damien Hirst’s elusive guest list. Lurking among celebrities and powerful figures including international collectors, curators, writers and artists is someone who has ulterior motives for being there: Fiona’s ex-boyfriend Ross Shawcross. As tempers flare and bonds are tested under the watchful eye of Annabelle Lee things take a sinister turn when one of them disappears without trace…
