It's gripping and hilarious and perfect for the plane, mostly because you'll never put it down * Allure * I absolutely devoured this book.

Funny yet full of drama, this is a must-read * Fabulous * Not so much a psychological thriller as a psychological comedy . . . wit and insight abound * Sunday Times Crime Club * A hugely enjoyable read: a warm and wise take on fractured lives, full of sharp observations about the frailty of human nature * Sunday Express * One of the best books of 2018 * Cosmopolitan * 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 * 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 * The suspense keeps building in an enjoyably zany thriller * Guardian, Best Summer Reads * Utter brilliance, with a twist halfway through that blew my mind -- Marian Keyes Original, suspenseful and laugh-out-loud funny. Nine Perfect Strangers is downright brilliant -- Clare Mackintosh Astutely observed, pacey fiction. The characters and observations are acute - and often a hoot. Nicole Kidman has already bought the film rights * Sunday Times *
