Waterstones Says

Tightly-plotted, impossibly twisty and wickedly funny, this sundrenched page-turner from the creator of Big Little Lies sees nine stressed out city dwellers descend upon an island paradise to recuperate, little suspecting what sinister goings-on await them there.

Waterstones Thriller of the Month for April 2019

One house. Nine strangers. Ten days that will change everything...

The eagerly-anticipated new novel from the worldwide Number One bestselling author behind Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning HBO series Big Little Lies and smash-hit novel The Husband's Secret.

The retreat at health-and-wellness resort Tranquillum House promises total transformation. Nine stressed city dwellers are keen to drop their literal and mental baggage, and absorb the meditative ambience while enjoying their hot stone massages.

Miles from anywhere, without cars or phones, they have no way to reach the outside world. Just time to think about themselves, and get to know each other.

Watching over them is the resort's director, a woman on a mission. But quite a different one from any the guests might have imagined. For behind the retreat's glamorous facade lies a dark agenda.

These nine perfect strangers have no idea what's about to hit them...

MEDIA REVIEWS

Astutely observed, pacey fiction. The characters and observations are acute - and often a hoot. Nicole Kidman has already bought the film rights - Sunday Times

Utter brilliance, with a twist halfway through that blew my mind - Marian Keyes

The suspense keeps building in an enjoyably zany thriller - Guardian, Best Summer Reads

From the delicious imagination of Big Little Lies' Liane Moriarty, Nine Perfect Strangers is the razor-sharp thriller of the autumn . . . Moriarty lands a very contemporary tale that bristles with her unmistakable brilliance - Waterstones

No one currently writes about the minutiae of women's lives with quite as much insight and pull as Moriarty and, once again, her slow-burn plotting leaves you gasping at the end of the tale. I am jealous of anyone who hasn't read this yet - Grazia

One of the best books of 2018 - Cosmopolitan

A hugely enjoyable read: a warm and wise take on fractured lives, full of sharp observations about the frailty of human nature - Sunday Express

Liane Moriarty's latest novel is a hoot - Daily Mail

I absolutely devoured this book. Moriarty's main strength lies not (just) in the absolute compelling need to know how the story will end but in the perfectly crafted characters and a mix of humour with social observation. One of the best writers around - Jenny Blackhurst

A psychological thriller that takes place at a wellness retreat. It's gripping and hilarious and perfect for the plane, mostly because you'll never put it down - Allure

Moriarty struck gold with Big Little Lies and roars back with Nine Perfect Strangers - Balance

Moriarty is as adept at comedy as tugging on heartstrings - Daily Express

A suspenseful novel that makes you laugh out loud. Brilliantly drawn characters make this a compelling read - Clare Mackintosh, Good Housekeeping
