The Couple at the Table: A Novel (Hardcover)
Honeymooners at a posh resort receive an ominous warning with deadly consequences in the latest gripping, twisty psychological thriller from New York Times bestselling author Sophie Hannah.
Jane and William are enjoying their honeymoon at an exclusive couples-only resort…
…until Jane receives a chilling note warning her to “Beware of the couple at the table nearest to yours.” At dinner that night, five other couples are present, and none of their tables is any nearer or farther away than any of the others. It’s almost as if someone has set the scene in order to make the warning note meaningless—but why would anyone do that?
Jane has no idea.
But someone in this dining room will be dead before breakfast, and all the evidence will suggest that no one there that night could have possibly committed the crime.

Sophie is also the author of a self-help book, How to Hold a Grudge, and hosts the podcast of the same name. She lives in Cambridge, UK.
“A cause for celebration. The Couple at the Table has everything you want in a mystery—a cryptic threat, a murder, a closed circle of suspects and an unguessable solution. Completely ingenious, entirely satisfying—a delight from start to finish.” — Alex Michaelides, New York Times bestselling author
“A wise and witty portrait of modern marriage and murder.” — Times (UK) on The Couple at the Table
“Part whodunnit, part psychological thriller, this one will leave you looking over your shoulder and a little less trustful of those around you.” — CrimeReads (Most Anticipated Books of Fall 2022) on The Couple at the Table
“Hannah builds on her suspenseful premise with well-placed clues and a superb sense of timing, all the way to a crash-and-burn ending.” — New York Times Book Review on Perfect Little Children
“No one writes twisted, suspenseful novels quite like Sophie Hannah.” — Liane Moriarty #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Hannah’s plots are like intricate jigsaw puzzles whose pieces you cannot believe will fit together, until you see the completed picture… The fun in reading The Next to Die…isn’t in learning whodunit, but in following the labyrinthine byways of its author’s peculiar worldview and the twisted motives of her characters.” — New York Times
“Sophie Hannah... has clearly mastered the psychological methodology [of] Gillian Flynn or Tana French. Her unreliable narrator commands our attention and even our sympathy.” — NPR
