A suspenseful novel that makes you laugh out loud. Brilliantly drawn characters make this a compelling read - Clare Mackintosh, Good Housekeeping

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.

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 . . .

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. Nine Perfect Strangers is downright brilliant -- Clare Mackintosh Astutely observed, pacey fiction. The characters and observations are acute - and often a hoot.
