Simon Waterhouse and Charlie Zailer are back in bestseller Sophie Hannah's twisty new psych suspense:SIX COUPLES. ONE LUXURY RESORT. AND THE PERFECT MURDER . . .
You're on your honeymoon at an exclusive couples-only resort.
You receive a note, warning you to 'Beware of the couple at the table nearest to yours'. At dinner that night, five other couples are sitting close by, but none of their tables is any nearer or further away than any of the others. It's almost as if someone has set the scene in order to make the warning note meaningless. Why would anyone do that?
You have no idea.
You also don't know that you're about to be murdered, or that once you're dead, all the evidence will suggest that no one there that night could possibly have committed the crime.
So who might be trying to warn you? And who might be about to kill you, and seems certain to get away with it?
Hannah's plots are like intricate jigsaw puzzles whose pieces you cannot believe will fit together, until you see the completed picture. Her denouements tend to make more sense in retrospect than at the time. The fun . . . isn't in learning whodunit, but in following the labyrinthine byways of its author's peculiar worldview and the twisted motives of her characters - The New York Times
