What if the only way you could prevent a murder was by confessing to it?

Jemma Stelling has confessed to a murder.

She is the police’s lead suspect.

She couldn’t have committed the crime.

She has an unshakeable alibi: at the time of Marianne Cass’s brutal murder, Jemma was at the police station, confessing to a murderous obsession with Marianne.

Is Jemma Stelling innocent? Or is she an ingenious, cold-blooded killer?

Can you be guilty of the opposite of murder?

A new novel by Sophie Hannah is a cause for celebration. The Couple at The Table has everything you want in a mystery – a cryptic threat, a murder, a closed circle of suspects and an unguessable solution. Completely ingenious, entirely satisfying – a delight from start to finish – Alex Michaelides, author of THE SILENT PATIENT

I have just finished The Couple At The Table and it is BY FAR Sophie Hannah’s best one yet. Relatable, funny, high concept and so satisfying I watched in awe as the pieces fell into place. Bravo! – Gillian McAllister, author of THAT NIGHT

You’ll love this brain-melting thriller! – Fabulous
