The Last Night Out – Catherine O’Connell

‘A hell of a storyteller, a master of plot, a tart observer of the social scene’

Frank McCourt

The Last Night Out

Catherine O’Connell

Six friends. Three secrets. One murder.

Maggie is destined to marry the perfect man in two weeks. Desperate for a last wild night on the town before the big day, she gathers six friends for a night to remember.

Only things go wrong, horribly wrong.

Angie’s body is found in the park the following morning and the night to remember quickly becomes a nightmare they wish they could forget. Under police scrutiny, how far will Maggie and her friends go to keep their secrets - far enough to protect a killer?
