Praise for Sophie Hannah: "What does motherhood mean? What should a mother do if her child is in danger? . . . It's those choices and their consequences that make "Little Face" compelling."--"The Washington Post" "As . . . Agatha Christie gleefully trampled on that sacrosanct rule of the mystery novel to 'play fair with the reader, ' the power this novel packs derives from narrators who play fast and loose with what they know. . . . The solution is a stunner."--"The Boston Globe" "Spine-tingling."--"Romantic Times" (top pick) "A tautly claustrophobic spiral of a story."--"Kirkus Reviews" "Clever and original. . . . She has a brilliant new career ahead of her."--"BookPage" "A splendid crime-psychological thriller. . . . A book so well-plotted and so well-written deserves to have its surprises kept intact."--"St. Louis-Post Dispatch" "Riveting reading."--"Mystery Scene" A serial rapist relies on successful career women's shame to insulate him from punishment. Then one of them sets out to find her missing lover, a married man, and in so doing exposes a sinister plot. Sophie Hannah is an award-winning, best-selling poet in England. Her previous psychological thriller, "Little Face," was an acclaimed bestseller in the United Kingdom, as was "Hurting Distance."

display_description "Naomi Jenkins knows all about secrets: three years ago something terrible happened to her, so terrible that she's never told anyone about it. Now, Naomi has another secret: her passionate relationship with the unhappily married Robert Haworth. When Robert vanishes without explanation, Naomi knows he must have come to harm. But the police are less convinced, particularly when Robert's wife insists he is not missing..."--P. [4] of cover.
