Clever and twisty, this is a supremely plotted tale. Having previously read I Know Who You Are I guess I can’t claim to be surprised!
Set mostly during a weekend away in a remote – bleak – part of Scotland, the books is hugely atmospheric and highlights painfully the absence and distance that can form within relationships.
I adored the little images at the top of the chapters. The reveal of the significance was a delightful little moment for me.
Hard to review without spoiling it, lets just say that if you enjoy a clever psychological thriller then you will love this book.
Blurb: Think you know the person you married? Think again…
Things have been wrong with Mr and Mrs Wright for a long time. When Adam and Amelia win a weekend away to Scotland, it might be just what their marriage needs. Self-confessed workaholic and screenwriter Adam Wright has lived with face blindness his whole life. He can’t recognize friends or family, or even his own wife.
Every anniversary the couple exchange traditional gifts – paper, cotton, pottery, tin – and each year Adam’s wife writes him a letter that she never lets him read. Until now. They both know this weekend will make or break their marriage, but they didn’t randomly win this trip. One of them is lying, and someone doesn’t want them to live happily ever after.
Ten years of marriage. Ten years of secrets. And an anniversary they will never forget.
Rock Paper Scissors is the latest exciting domestic thriller from the queen of the killer twist, New York Times bestselling author Alice Feeney.
