With its breakneck pacing and fascinating characters on display from the first page, EENY MEENY opens with a compelling and terrifying premise. A young couple wakes up trapped in an abandoned diving pool without food or water. There’s no escape. Instead there is a loaded gun with a single bullet, and a phone with enough battery life to receive one message: to walk free, one of them must kill the other.
Kill or be killed—no choice.
When other pairs are given the same orders in increasingly twisted ways, the brilliant but damaged Detective Inspector Helen Grace (reminiscent of Prime Suspect’s Jane Tennison or Stella Gibson in the TV series The Fall) finds herself racing against time and confronting dark chapters of her own past.
Published in the UK last summer, EENY MEENY was a Richard and Judy Book Club pick, an instant Sunday Times bestseller, and a reviewer favorite.
“Readers will look forward to seeing more of this strong, intelligent, and courageous lead.”
“This book, without a doubt, is a definite thrill that will set suspense lovers in their chairs for as long as it takes them to read it from cover to cover.”
“A fresh and brilliant departure from the stock serial killer tale. Detective Inspector Helen Grace is one of the greatest heroes to come along in years.”
~New York Times–bestselling author Jeffery Deaver
“EENY MEENY debuts one of the best new series detectives, Helen Grace. Determined, tough and damaged, she must unravel a terrifying riddle of a killer kidnapping victims in pairs. Mesmerizing!”
~New York Times–bestselling author Lisa Gardner
