Description

FROM THE WORLDWIDE #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR BEHIND EMMY- AND GOLDEN GLOBE-WINNING HBO SERIES BIG LITTLE LIES AND SMASH-HIT NOVEL THE HUSBAND'S SECRET

If you know anyone who loves Big Little Lies then the bestselling author's latest book will be right up their street - a tale of perfect lies and imperfect lives . . .

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 . . .

People running from their pasts, presents and futures - what more could one ask for? * Connaught Telegraph * 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 Liane Moriarty's latest novel is a hoot * Daily Mail * Fantastic * Best * A witty and poignant novel - Moriarty's storytelling is worth every penny * People * Liane Moriarty serves up laughs, thrills and surprises * Mail Online UK * Moriarty has an entertainingly keen eye for the absurdities of modern life.

I am jealous of anyone who hasn't read this yet * Grazia * 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 What a joy it is. I've never read Liane Moriarty before . . . I don't know what I was thinking. Brilliantly entertaining, tightly plotted. You're in for loads of fun -- Sam Baker * The Pool * I've discovered the brilliant Liane Moriarty and couldn't be happier. Her books really are the definition of unputdownable -- Nina Stibbe A fantastic piece of entertainment . . . Read this witty and fast-moving novel now, before the inevitable TV series * The Times * This wonderful novel had me utterly hooked * Daily Mail * Another page-turning belter of a book . . . with wit, charm, emotion, drama and mystery aplenty, this is an absolute must * Heat * Utter brilliance, with a twist halfway through that blew my mind -- Marian Keyes Original, suspenseful and laugh-out-loud funny.
