INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
“Feeney lives up to her reputation as the “queen of the twist”…This page-turner will keep you guessing.” —Real Simple
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.
Rock Paper Scissors is the latest exciting domestic thriller from the queen of the killer twist, New York Times bestselling author Alice Feeney.
Londoners Amelia and Adam Wright, the couple at the center of this craftily plotted if flawed domestic thriller from bestseller Feeney (His & Hers), are spending the weekend at spooky Blackwater Chapel in the Scottish Highlands on what is meant to be a last-ditch effort to save their 10-year marriage. Each harbors darker agendas for the weekend, as does the mysterious, hermit-like neighbor, Robin, who frightens Amelia when Amelia catches the woman peering at her through a chapel window. The plot takes some perilous turns in ways both predictable a power outage, dangerously loose stones in the wall of the chapel's belfry and not, as alternating narrations from the trio open a Pandora's box packed with secrets, lies, and betrayals. Feeney's signature misdirection sets up gasp-worthy twists down the stretch even if they, like the characters, come off as arbitrary and artificial. In contrast to His & Hers, some may walk away from this one feeling more snookered than satisfied.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was an easy read and kept me guessing. Enjoyed the plot twist.
A quintessential mystery
The triumph of an amazing thriller is the moment we find ourselves transfixed by a shocking twist and we halt the rest of real life so we can get resolution from the end of the story. This book hits every exiting mark you want in a new read.
Best book I’ve read this year
Wow, wow, wow! I have no idea what I just finished reading. This has to be the absolute best Psychological Thriller I’ve read this year. This book will keep you reading way past your bedtime! I finished it at 2 am this morning because I just couldn’t put it down.
Three quarters of the way through the book, is absolutely mind blowing. This story is written with so much suspense that the pages just fly by as you try to get to the end.
Incredibly well written, fantastic plot line that will definitely keep your attention. This is the first book I’ve read by Alice Feeney and definitely will not be my last. I’m going back through after this to get the rest of her books.
If I could give this book 10 stars I would because it was just that good. If you enjoy Psychological Suspense this is definitely the book for you!
