Sophie Hannah's top ten pageturners

Sophie Hannah is an internationally bestselling writer of psychological crime fiction.

At the Guardian she tagged ten top addictive reads, including:
The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty

A woman finds an envelope addressed to her by her husband. On it he has written "Only open this if I am dead." She asks him about it and he rather shiftily says: "Oh, er, it's nothing – don't open it." That is the initial hook, and it's a powerful one. What's great about this novel is that it makes you care absolutely equally about the plot and the characters. It's a moving story about relationships, redemption, guilt, love and just about every other important thing. At the same time, it's a perfectly paced mystery with a beautiful solution and a breathtakingly twisty final chapter.
