PLAY DEAD (Orion, £7.99) by Harlan Coben
Hitchcock would have loved Coben’s plot bombshells, and shocks lie ahead after Laura Ayers’ perfect world implodes when her husband David goes for a swim on their honeymoon and simply vanishes. Was he the victim of an accident, or was it suicide? Laura soon discovers she knew nothing about the man she loved, and a conspiracy from the past is killing people in the present. And Laura could be in deadly peril.
