It was supposed to be a holiday... The gripping new psychological thriller from the author of 2020's twistiest debut, One White Lie.
When her husband Harry walks out after just six months, Sam has never been in more need of a getaway.
So when her friends Diana and Margaret - newly single themselves - suggest a girls' weekend away, Sam can't accept soon enough.
But then things start to go wrong. Car trouble on the road leaves them stranded. And what's more, it's in the town where he lives.
Sam is sure a big night out can't hurt. After all, it's hardly likely that Harry would show up, right?
And no one could ever expect the night would end in murder...

Clever, complex and expertly planned
What a clever book, I inhaled every chapter, desperate to find out what was going on. I absolutely loved it! Those cliffhangers!
Full of secrets and twists, The Perfect Escape is a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat thriller about a group of friends who may not know one another as well as they think. With its eerie setting, unsettling plot, and shocking reveals, this book had me completely captivated from the first page to the very last
When three women embark on a trip to forget their broken lives, they become embroiled in the centre of a murder investigation. The Perfect Escape is a clever, locked room mystery that is compulsively readable and impossible to put down!
Nobody writes twists like Leah Konen-this woman puts Hitchcock to shame. The Perfect Escape is somehow even more fantastic than her stunning debut, One White Lie; her sophomore effort is a gripping, whip-smart, and unforgettable pulse-pounder that left my head spinning. With its intricate plotting and truly shocking reveals, this thriller is both an addictive page-turner and a brilliant examination of female friendship, shame, and betrayals. Thriller lovers: You need this book
The Perfect Escape is the type of captivating, masterfully-constructed thriller you'll consume in a breathless rush-and then flip right back to the beginning to figure out how the author pulled it all off. Konen keeps the shocking twists coming while wringing nail-biting tension out of even the smallest moments. I couldn't put it down!
