And what' s more, it' s in the town where he lives. Sam is sure a big night out can' t hurt. After all, it' s hardly likely that Harry would show up, right? And no one could ever expect the night would end in murder. . .
Clever, complex and expertly planned -- Rachel Abbott What a clever book, I inhaled every chapter, desperate to find out what was going on. I absolutely loved it! Those cliffhangers! -- Andrea Mara, bestselling author of All Her Fault A brilliantly addictive, tense and twisty thriller about toxic relationships, secrets and lies -- Alice Hunter Full of secrets and twists, The Perfect Escape is a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat thriller about a group of friends who may not know one another as well as they think. With its eerie setting, unsettling plot, and shocking reveals, this book had me completely captivated from the first page to the very last -- Megan Miranda, author of Such a Quiet Place When three women embark on a trip to forget their broken lives, they become embroiled in the centre of a murder investigation. The Perfect Escape is a clever, locked room mystery that is compulsively readable and impossible to put down! -- Wendy Walker, author of Don' t Look for Me Nobody writes twists like Leah Konen-this woman puts Hitchcock to shame. The Perfect Escape is somehow even more fantastic than her stunning debut, One White Lie; her sophomore effort is a gripping, whip-smart, and unforgettable pulse-pounder that left my head spinning. With its intricate plotting and truly shocking reveals, this thriller is both an addictive page-turner and a brilliant examination of female friendship, shame, and betrayals. Thriller lovers: You need this book -- Andrea Bartz The Perfect Escape is the type of captivating, masterfully-constructed thriller you' ll consume in a breathless rush-and then flip right back to the beginning to figure out how the author pulled it all off. Konen keeps the shocking twists coming while wringing nail-biting tension out of even the smallest moments. I couldn' t put it down! -- Layne Fargo This addictive read has all the elements of a perfect thriller - action packed, creepy and full of twists, it' s unputdownable! * My Weekly * Praise for Leah Konen -- : It' s rare that a novel keeps me guessing until the very last page - but One White Lie delivers in a big way. If you crave an escape from the real world, this is the book for you. It' s absolutely terrific -- Sarah Pekkanen * bestselling co-author of The Wife Between Us * Hooked me from the start, with an ending that will blow you away -- Samantha Downing, bestselling author of My Lovely Wife Intense, unpredictable and completely addictive. . . everything a great psychological thriller should be -- TM Logan * bestselling author of The Holiday *
