LIANE MORIARTY says that “No one writes twisted, suspenseful novels quite like Sophie Hannah.” Packed with twists and clues, simmering with tension, this electrifying new thriller shows why.


She's the most famous murder victim in America. What if she's not dead?


Pushed to the breaking point, Cara Burrows flees her home and family and escapes to a five-star spa resort she can't afford. Late at night, exhausted and desperate, she lets herself into her hotel room and is shocked to find it already occupied — by a man and a teenage girl.


A simple mistake at the front desk... but soon Cara realizes that the girl she saw alive and well in the hotel room is someone she can't possibly have seen: the most famous murder victim in the country, Melody Chapa, whose parents are serving natural life sentences for her murder.


Cara doesn't know what to trust — everything she's read and heard about the case, or the evidence of her own eyes. Did she really see Melody? And is she prepared to ask herself that question and answer it honestly if it means risking her own life?

Sophie Hannah was born in 1971 in Manchester, England. She is a bestselling, award-winning poet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good truthfully, its one of those novels that takes a few chapters to really get into, but once you do, its not bad. It is definitely not gone girl caliber but also not a bad read at all! If you have some spare time I would recommend

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One of those books you need to find someone to talk to about the ending The last book I read in 2017. The beginning was a little rough to get into. There was parts where it was confusing (I didn't realize there was another narrator and I wasn't sure if it was during the present or the past) and Cara Burrows was rather irritating to read about. It did improve with parts of the case and the very end suddenly made you doubt everything. Not a bad read but not the best either.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just okay for this reader I find Sophie Hannah's writing and plotting to be quite clever and have enjoyed many of her previous works. Her latest North American release is Keep Her Safe. Cara has had enough of her family. She decides to flee to a spa in the US from her home in Britain - and enjoy herself. But there's a bit of a snafu when she checks in. The room she's initially given already has two occupants - a man and a teenager who seems a bit 'off'. I thought this premise was great. So many possibilities could stem from a mistake of this kind. But then Cara learns of a case of a girl named Melody, murdered by her parents, The teenager in the room looks just like her and there's an irrefutable piece of evidence that points to her being Melody. But when Cara sounds the alarm - the girl is gone. But is Cara herself now in danger? An interesting cast of characters populate Keep Her Safe. I really liked Cara - and she's probably the only character I did. The supporting players are abrasive, harsh and somewhat unbelievable. Television maven and journalist Bonnie Juno is probably the worst of the bunch. Although her running diatribes do mirror many sensationalist journalists reporting today. Tarin Fry is another visitor to the spa and she takes it upon herself to 'help with the case. I found it unbelievable that the police would listen and take direction from her. I had to suspend disbelief with quite a bit of the plotting. The final 'ta-da' just seemed too far fetched. Although the descriptions of the spa painted vivid image for me, I found myself becoming somewhat tired of the details after a bit. That being said - the ending was a chilling little gotcha that I appreciated. I will absolutely pick up the next book from Sophie Hannah, but have to say Keep Her Safe was just an okay read for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not bad I read this one in a day. Some parts really dragged on, but the kidnapping part was really quite clever. I wasn't even close to figuring it out. It was good, not great, but a good weekend read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok It was a real page turner. I couldn't put it down. it kept me guessing right to the end. The only thing preventing me from giving it 5* was that I found the ending to be a bit far fetched. I am still not sure how I feel about how it all played out....

Editorial Reviews

“Hannah... excels at creating credible plot twists; the two in “Keep Her Safe” -- one at the climax, one at the denouement -- evoke gasps. Deftly played and instantly addictive, Hannah’s latest novel reaffirms her excellence and further elevates her stature.”
