Lord of the Fly Fest (Hardcover)
Influencers trapped on a deserted island with a murder suspect in their midst—what could possibly go wrong? Fans of White Lotus will love Lord of the Fly Fest, a hilarious and gripping take on Lord of the Flies from New York Times bestselling author Goldy Moldavsky.
Rafi Francisco needs a splashy case to put her true-crime podcast on the map. Her plan? A murder investigation, of course. She’s heading to Fly Fest, an exclusive music festival on a Caribbean island, to interview River Stone, the pop star who rocketed to fame after his girlfriend’s mysterious disappearance. And her interview is going to expose him as the killer she’s sure he is.
But when Rafi—and hordes of influencers—arrive at Fly Fest, the dreamy Caribbean getaway they were promised turns out to be a nightmare. Soon, Rafi is fighting for her life against power-hungry beauty gurus and spotty WiFi. And as the festival from hell continues with no end in sight, and Rafi finds herself growing closer to River, she begins to discover that his secrets have much bigger consequences than she ever imagined.
