***WINNER OF THE SPECSAVERS NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FOR CRIME THRILLER OF THE YEAR 2013
***

He swore he was a killer. The truth was worse.

An overnight plane delay is bad.

Having to share your hotel room with a stranger is worse.

But that is only the beginning of Gaby Struthers' problems.

Gaby has never met Lauren Cookson before. So how does Lauren know so much about her? How does she know that the love of Gaby's life has been accused of murder? Why is she telling her that he is innocent? And why is she so terrified of Gaby?

If you loved Gone Girl, you'll find this chilling domestic thriller impossible to put down.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A leading writer of psychological suspense . . . As ever, Hannah excels. Her books are so distinctive that they deserve to be placed in a separate sub-genre of their own. * Spectator *
A tale of the power that weakness and passivity can have over strength and action, and how theories of love and duty can lead us astray . . . The genius of Hannah's domestic thrillers - along with the twistiest plots known to woman - is that she creates ordinary people whose psychological quirks make them as monstrous as any serial killer. * Guardian *
A labyrinth of a psychological thriller . . . Hannah is masterly at leading the reader down the wrong path and here she excels once again. * Sunday Express *
Absorbing, intricate . . . THE CARRIER is a vicarage whodunit as well as a psychological thriller. * Sunday Times *
A hugely confident, beautifully written and bold mystery. Another gripping triumph. * Heat *
[Hannah] confirms in this, her eighth novel, her fluent writing skills, taste for complicated layers and deft hand with character, not to mention a knack for producing compelling openings....[The Carrier] is the kind of puzzle Agatha Christie might have created. Delicate, with ever-increasing dread, it is a mature work - full of confidence and intrigue. * Daily Mail *
Highly original . . . Hannah has once again ripped up the industry-standard 'A to Z of Writing a Whodunnit' and audaciously charted her own course . . . to produce a novel that is a classy, compulsive and chilling literary triumph. * Irish Independent *
Such is the author's command of narrative, we find ourselves glued to the page. We remain hooked throughout this compelling novel. * Daily Express *
Contemporary in its intent and setting, the novel is also a pleasingly old-fashioned 'locked room' mystery, with Hannah referencing Agatha Christie a number of times. All told, it's a very satisfying addition to Hannah's canon. * Irish Times *
