Content descriptions

General Note:
Series information from author's website.
"Originally published as The Couple at the Table in the United Kingdom in 2022 by Hodder & Stoughton."--Title page verso.
Summary, etc.:
"Jane and William are enjoying their honeymoon at an exclusive couples-only resort ... until Jane receives a chilling note warning her to "Beware of the couple at the table nearest to yours." At dinner that night, five other couples are present, and none of their tables is any nearer or farther away than any of the others. It's almost as if someone has set the scene in order to make the warning note meaningless--but why would anyone do that? Jane has no idea. But someone in this dining room will be dead before breakfast, and all the evidence will suggest that no one there that night could have possibly committed the crime"-- Provided by publisher.

    DC Simon Waterhouse and his wife, DS Charlotte (Charlie) Zailer, are spending a few days at a posh couples-only resort that makes Waterhouse uncomfortable...for good reason, it turns out. The trouble starts when a bride receives a note warning her to "Beware of the couple at the table nearest to yours." But no table is any nearer or farther from any other. A honeymooning guest is then murdered. It's an odd murder which requires an odd mind—Waterhouse's—to figure out. It actually takes six months for him to solve the crime, long after everyone else has given up. Hannah is in good form in this eleventh Waterhouse-Zailer mystery (after The Next To Die, 2019), delivering a complicated narrative carried forward by her hallmark peculiar characters. Hannah is known for intricate plots, and The Couple at the Table certainly qualifies. Some readers may find the puzzle a bit too tangled, but those who relish being confounded will enjoy tearing at their hair. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
