Critically acclaimed queen of psychological crime Sophie Hannah's fifth suspense novel - a must-read for those who love Clare Mackintosh and Paula Hawkins.

'Beautifully written' Daily Express
'Terrifying' Heat

Murder begins at home . . .

TV producer Fliss Benson receives an anonymous card at work. The card has sixteen numbers on it, arranged in four rows of four - numbers that mean nothing to her.

On the same day, Fliss finds out she's going to be working on a documentary about miscarriages of justice involving cot-death mothers wrongly accused of murder. The documentary will focus on three women: Helen Yardley, Sarah Jaggard and Rachel Hines. All three women are now free, and the doctor who did her best to send them to prison for life, child protection zealot Dr Judith Duffy, is under investigation for misconduct.

For reasons she has shared with nobody, this is the last project Fliss wants to be working on. And then Helen Yardley is found dead at her home, and in her pocket is a card with sixteen numbers on it, arranged in four rows of four . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS

When it comes to ingenious plots that twist and turn like a fairground rollercoaster few writers can match Sophie Hannah - Daily Express

This book's triumph is that it is not just a perfectly executed psychological thriller, but a pertinent meditation on society itself - Guardian

A remarkable novel, and an adventure to read . . . a first-class whodunnit that will keep you reading long into the night - Scotsman

Hannah is a master of intense psychological thrillers . . . Full of twists and turns, and terrifying, too - Heat

Enthrallingly Complex - Sunday Times

Hannah takes domestic scenarios, adds disquieting touches and turns up the suspense until you're checking under the bed for murders . . . it's this real-life research that helps make it so convincing - and so unsettling - Independent

Sophie Hannah has quickly established herself as a doyenne of the 'home horror' school of psychological tension, taking domestic situations and wringing from them dark, gothic thrills . . . Combining probability theory, poetry and murder, this is a densely plotted suspenser with a coded puzzle that would grace a Golden Age mystery - Financial Times

“Not the usual.....”

Just read Sophie Hannah - A room swept white. Good in places, dull in places. A Disappointment, she has certainly written better.

“FAB read”

Initially, I wasn't sure what to make of this book - I usually rely on the blurb at the back for inspiration. The main theme of cot death/SIDS and mothers murdering their children is dealt with sensitively but... More

“not up to hannah's usual standard”

I finished this but it was a struggle and I wish I hadn't bothered. Both my daughter and I have loved all Sophie Hannah's crime fiction but didn't enjoy this one much. The characters were all horrible... More
