You’re on your honeymoon at an exclusive couples-only resort. 

You receive a note warning you 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 further away than any of the others. It’s as if someone has set the scene in order to make the warning note meaningless – but why would anyone do that?

You have no idea. 

You also don’t know that you’re about to be murdered, or that once you’re dead, all the evidence will suggest that no one there that night could possibly have committed the crime.

So who might be trying to warn you? And who might be about to commit the perfect impossible murder?

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, internationally bestselling author of The Silent Patient

The world’s greatest detective, Hercule Poirot — legendary star of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile — returns to solve a delectably twisty mystery.


Hercule Poirot is traveling by luxury passenger coach from London to the exclusive Kingfisher Hill estate. Richard Devonport has summoned the renowned detective to prove that his fiancée, Helen, is innocent of the murder of his brother, Frank. Poirot will have only days to investigate before Helen is hanged, but there is one strange condition attached: he must conceal his true reason for being there from the rest of the Devonport family…

“What Sophie and Agatha have in common is a rare talent for fiendish unpredictability. They make you see how the impossible might be possible after all.”
Sunday Telegraph

This is a literary marriage made in heaven – Sophie Hannah and Agatha Christie… The plot and setting are pure Christie, but with an extra layer of bamboozlement and a superbly mysterious atmosphere.
The Times

Bestseller Hannah displays her superior ability to devise mind-blowing setups in her fourth authorized continuation of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot series… Fans of classic fair-play puzzle mysteries will clamor for more.

A top 5 Sunday Times bestseller and 2021 Richard & Judy Book Club Pick

Twelve years ago, Thomas and Emily Braid were five and three years old.

Today, they don’t look a day older.

Why haven’t they grown?

Out now

Full of verve, brio and vigour, with twists as knotty as a gnarled old oak tree and an unexpectedly frightening conclusion…Sophie Hannah’s writing style is vivid, stimulating and enormous fun. She’s a complete original, her bracingly fizzing plots like intricate jigsaw puzzles; you can’t quite believe she’ll fit all the pieces together, but somehow, she does. Haven’t They Grown is intelligent, classy, and tremendously entertaining. We loved it.
Richard and Judy

“Sparkling…a marvellous creation”
Sunday Times

“One of this country’s most accomplished writers and one of the few who could pull off such an impossible sounding mystery. It is testament to Hannah’s skill that she creates such a convincing narrative, cleverly manages the suspense and deals with so many contemporary themes. And she hasn’t lost her knack for sending the reader in the wrong direction.”
