TV producer Fliss Benson receives an anonymous card at work: 16 numbers arranged in four rows of four – numbers that mean nothing to her. On the same day, Fliss finds out she will be working on a documentary about miscarriages of justice involving cot death mothers. The documentary will focus on three women: Helen Yardley, Sarah Jaggard and Rachel Hines. All three are now free, and the doctor involved, is under investigation for misconduct. For reasons she has shared with nobody, this is the last project Fliss wants to be working on. And then Helen Yardley is found dead at her home, and in her pocket is a card with 16 numbers on it, arranged in four rows of four...

Hannah lives with her husband and two children in Cambridge, where she is fellow commoner at Lucy Cavendish College.

Review:

‘When it comes to ingenious plots that twist and turn like a fairground rollercoaster few writers can match Sophie Hannah. Hannah’s complex and beautifully written tale kept me guessing right till the very last page.’ - Daily Express

‘Hannah takes domestic scenarios, adds disquieting touches and turns up the suspense until you’re checking under your bed for murderers ... it’s this real-life research that helps make it so convincing—and so unsettling.’ - Independent

‘A perplexing thriller with intrigue and infanticide.... It’s a given that nothing will be as it seems in the latest psychological thriller from Sophie Hannah, who marries complex plots with crisp, conversational prose.’ - Marie Claire

‘Enthrallingly complex.... A multi-stranded narrative that grips.’ - The Sunday Times

‘Hannah is a master of intense psychological thrillers.... Full of twists and turns, and terrifying, too.’ - Heat magazine

‘Sophie Hannah has quickly established herself as a doyenne of the “home horror” school of psychological tension, taking domestic situations and wringing from them dark, gothic thrills.... Combining probability theory, poetry and murder, this is a densely plotted suspenser with a coded puzzle that would grace a Golden Age mystery.’ - Financial Times

‘The triumph of this novel is that it is not only a perfectly executed psychological thriller, but a pertinent meditation on society itself.’ - Guardian

‘The title really sells it. It’s creepy stuff, which Sophie’s things often are, quite necessarily.’ - Tana French, Irish Times

‘Sophie Hannah has a poet’s eye, and she creates characters and settings of closely observed complexity in her psychological mysteries.’ - Daily Telegraph

‘Intriguing, unnerving and engrossing.... Hannah has timing down to an art. What she has created in A Room Swept White is more than a murder mystery. It is the most adept of psychological thrillers, in which—as with Hannah’s other novels—the psychosis lying just below the surface of the human personality is exposed.... A remarkable novel, and an adventure to read.... Undoubtedly a first-class whodunit that will keep you reading long into the night.’ - The Scotsman

‘She writes beautifully, the narrative races along with the reader breathlessly trying to catch up and the subject matter is fascinating. This is her fifth psychological suspense thriller and, like the others, it’s destined for bestsellerdom.’ - Daily Mail

‘Taut, ingenious.’ - Sunday Express

‘Brilliantly pacy and penetrating psychological thriller.’ - Daily Mirror
