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.
Four stars from a picky thriller reader!
Fantastic twist and turns at the end! I have read many thriller books and this one ranks up there pretty high for me. I typically forget the names of most thriller books because they all some what blend together but this one stands out. At times it is cheesy, but aren’t most thrillers? I could have done with far less of the metaphors but over all a great book I will recommend!
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.
