From the best-selling author of The Party and Have You Seen Her comes another utterly gripping listen.... 

Is this a match made in heaven or hell?

When Emily applies to a job as a housekeeper for widower Rupert, it’s a chance to start over: a steady job and regular money means she can work towards her own place, not sharing a grimy flat with old mate Mags.

As Emily gets to know more about Rupert’s world - how he likes his supper when he comes in from work, who his friends are - she can make sure everything runs like clockwork for him.

Soon there’s a spark between them; Rupert likes Emily and invites her to stay. For good.

To the outside world, they really seem to be a perfect match. There’s just the small issue of what really happened to Rupert’s first wife.

A gripping, razor-sharp game of cat and mouse, from the best-selling author Lisa Hall.

Critic reviews

"Chillingly believable and utterly compelling with thrills aplenty - I loved this book." (Lucy Foley, number one best-selling author of The Hunting Party and The Guest List)

"The Perfect Couple is the perfect summer [listen]. A classy thriller that’s stylish, twisty and full of suspense, Hall’s novel is garnished with echoes of the classics such as Rebecca and Gaslight, but is very much a delicious cocktail all of its own." (Sarah Pinborough, number one best-selling author of Behind Her Eyes and Cross Her Heart)

"Think Rebecca, Body Heat, and Gaslight. Lisa Hall’s dark thriller plays on three classic tropes and does the seemingly unimaginable: it improves on them. You’re going to devour this one." (Christina Dalcher, best-selling author of Vox and Q)
