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.

Reviews

Chilling and clever, with a twist so sharp you’ll get whiplash. Rock Paper Scissors is the kind of blistering, one-sit-read that Alice Feeney is just so incredibly good at.

Chris Whitaker

I loved it! Kept me up way past my bedtime before BBC Breakfast!

Louise Minchin, BBC Breakfast Presenter

How is she tricking me? Feeney has trained her readers to start asking this question immediately with her puzzle-box narratives. This complicated gothic thriller of duelling spouses and homicidal writers is cleverly plotted.

Kirkus

So compelling...a staggering novel filled with tension, suspense, and an ending that will leave you flabbergasted.

Samantha Downing

I loved it!

Sarah Pinborough

Not just fiendish but positively Feeneyish – dark, ingenious and very clever.

Cara Hunter

Deliciously dark . . . An exquisitely constructed, hugely entertaining thriller . . . I loved it.

Catherine Ryan Howard

A cleverly crafted novel with a great twist.

Stella Magazine

It is a clever, cunning read.

Belfast Telegraph
