    DescriptionWINNER OF THE SPECSAVERS NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FOR CRIME NOVEL OF THE YEAR 2013 When her plane is delayed overnight, Gaby Struthers finds herself forced to share a hotel room with a stranger: a terrified young woman named Lauren Cookson - but why is she scared of Gaby in particular? Lauren won't explain. Instead, she blurts out something about an innocent man going to prison for a murder he didn't commit, and Gaby soon suspects that Lauren's presence on her flight can't be a coincidence. Because the murder victim is Francine Breary, the wife of the only man Gaby has ever truly loved. Tim Breary has confessed, and even provided the police with evidence.

    Review quote
    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 [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 Absorbing, intricate ... Here the rewarding bonuses are poetry's role in the plot and a playful reworking of the Agatha Christie formula ... THE CARRIER is a vicarage whodunit as as well as a psychological thriller. Sunday Times 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 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 Our favourite writer of psychological crime thrillers is back with perhaps her most ambitious novel yet ... Here's another massively intriguing premise from Hannah, with plot threads that spin out in all kinds of unusual and surprising directions ... A hugely confident, beautifully written and bold mystery. Another gripping triumph. Heat Blissfully intricate ... As usual I tried to guess the solution, failed utterly and decided simply to enjoy the white-knuckle ride; this is a writer who gets right into the heads of her characters. Saga 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 ... Intriguing. Guardian Hannah, a whip-smart thriller writer, makes tales that are tricky, teasing and thought-provoking. THE CARRIER is a classic of the type. RTE Ireland Another gripping puzzle of a novel from one of Britain's best crime writers ... A compulsive read. Image Magazine A whirlwind journey of whodunit ... There are plenty of good thrillers out there, but then there are the great ones and this is definitely one of them. RTE Guide It is brilliantly constructed, and it had me, screaming, on the edge of my chair. Reader's Digest 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 This complex plot demands and rewards attention, thanks to a fantastic cast and some superior, atmospheric prose ...Thrilling. South China Morning Post The queen of the ingenious plot twist Good Housekeeping Brilliant The Bookseller Sophie's storylines are always riveting, and this one will not disappoint! My Weekly 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 Another compelling read from Sophie Hannah ... If you are interested however in what makes people behave as they do and what lengths ordinary people will go to in response to extraordinary events, then you will enjoy this. Euro Crime With ingenuity and deft plotting, this accomplished page-turner moves inexorably towards a shocking conclusion The Good Book Guide
