“If three characters were good in Big Little Lies, nine are even better in Nine Perfect Strangers.” ―Lisa Scottoline, The New York Times Book Review
Liane Moriarty's latest offering is a hugely enjoyable psychological thriller that is pure fun and entertainment as it digs beyond the facade of a wide cast of characters. Nine strangers arrive at Tranquillem House for a 10 day health and welness retreat that clients swear can transforms lives...but they're about to get considerably more than they bargained for. Its owner, Russian Masha, is a ruthlessly ambitious former company executive with a dark and hidden agenda, assisted by staffers Yao, and Delilah. There's twice married Frances Welty, an established writer of romances whose career has gone into freefall. Ben and Jessica, a troubled married couple who appear to be remarkably well off. Napoleon, a schoolteacher, with his wife, Heather, and daughter, Zoe, the entire family weighed down by grief and guilt. Tony is a former star footballer, who has recently lost his beloved dog, Banjo. Carmel has lost her husband, has four children, and has lost her self esteem and confidence. Lars is a well heeled divorce lawyer, who only represents wives in his word of mouth law practice. Combining all of the hallmarks that have made her writing a go-to for anyone looking for wickedly smart, page-turning fiction that will make you laugh and gasp, Liane Moriarty’s Nine Perfect Strangers once again shows why she is a master of her craft.
