Pushed to breaking point, Cara Burrows abandons her home and family and escapes to a five-star spa resort she can't afford. Late at night, exhausted and desperate, she lets herself into her hotel room and is shocked to find it already occupied - by a man and a teenage girl.

A simple mistake on the part of the hotel receptionist - but Cara's fear intensifies when she works out that the girl she saw alive and well in the hotel room is someone she can't possibly have seen: the most famous murder victim in the country, Melody Chapa, whose parents are serving life sentences for her murder.

Cara doesn't know what to trust: everything she's read and heard about the case, or the evidence of her own eyes. Did she really see Melody? And is she prepared to ask herself that question and answer it honestly if it means risking her own life?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Outstandingly brilliant -- Clare Mackintosh
This clever, captivating and consistently funny whodunit could well be Hannah's best contemporary novel to date * Sunday Times *
A top-notch page-turner full of intrigue and unforgettable characters - Sophie Hannah at her absolute best. -- Liz Nugent
Gripping - and wryly funny - page-turner. * Good Housekeeping *
With more twists, twirls and turns than a Quidditch match, DID YOU SEE MELODY? will keep you guessing - and turning pages - right till its explosive end. * Heat *
Sophie Hannah adds a wickedly satiric edge to the 'is she/isn't she' scenario, ridiculing the court of American public opinion while providing a tense and twisty mystery. * Evening Standard *
Did You See Melody? is Sophie Hannah at her very best. Twisty as a corkscrew and totally entertaining, it is the definition of a page turner - I read it in one day. Put everything on hold and pick up this book now. Brilliant -- Jenny Blackhurst
This chilling offering is yet another page turner from the queen of psychological thrillers. * Closer *
A fast paced, exhilarating read with a fantastic central plot that keeps you guessing right till the end. * Kate Hamer *
Brilliant writing, great story - what more could you want? -- B.A. Paris
