It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime.
Delighted by a surprise invitation, Miriam Macy sails off to a luxurious private island off the coast of Mexico, with six strangers—an ex-cop, a chef, a financial advisor, a nurse, a lawyer, a young widow.
Surrounded by miles of open water in the gloriously green Sea of Cortez, Miriam is shocked to discover that she and the rest of her companions have been brought to the remote island under false pretenses—and all seven strangers harbor a secret.
Danger lurks in the lush forest and in the halls and bedrooms of the lonely mansion. Sporadic cell phone coverage and miles of ocean keep the group trapped in paradise. And strange accidents keep them suspicious of each other, as one by one.
They All Fall Down Spoilers:
The invitation to the island was for Philip the lawyer’s memorial service, but all the attendees were tricked into going. In the end, all the deaths were orchestrated by Philip because he hated them all. He threatened Evelyn to get her to kill the first three and then herself. Miriam shot Eddie in self-defense. When Wallace went to hide in one of the house’s hidden shelters, he realized Philip had rigged it so he couldn’t get out. Wallace had emotionally abused Philip throughout their relationship. Miriam escaped.
