The Dinner Party

The Dinner Party


When Caroline arranges a dinner party, an extra person, invited by her husband John, increases the number to thirteen.

Johannah, a particularly superstitious guest, upsets the evening by her warning that before the year is out one of those seated around the table will surely die.

This prediction is ridiculed by the other guests, but strangely the night of the dinner party appears to be a turning point in the lives of each and every one of them.

As all the guests' lives unfold during the following year, each unique but some interlinking with others, the intriguing question is: will anyone be missing from Caroline's special dinner party twelve months on?
