Did she really see Melody?

The stunning new pageturner from the Queen of Psychological Suspense.

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?

Hannah lures in the reader with her usual sneaky prowess . . . you think you know what's going on, but you don't. Imaginative plotting and tricky characters whip you around until you just give up figuring out the end and hang on. If you're looking for a terrific crime thriller for your next relaxing escape, this is it (but you might want to double-check your room number first).

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.

This clever, captivating and consistently funny whodunit could well be Hannah's best contemporary novel to date
