Nine Perfect Strangers

By Liane Moriarty

The health and wellness retreat promises total transformation, and nine stressed city dwellers are keen to drop their literal and mental baggage, while enjoying their hot stone massages in complete serenity.

Watching over them is the resort’s director, a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired bodies and minds.

These nine perfect strangers have no idea what’s about to hit them.

Praise for Nine Perfect Strangers

‘She is . . . both hugely popular yet subversive . . . Nine Perfect Strangers shows Moriarty still taking risks with fiction . . . weighty issues writ with humour and a light touch. The hammer is still in the handbag, ready to smash a glass window or two.’ THE AUSTRALIAN

‘Welcome to Tranquillum House where those Perfect Strangers . . . have come to sort out their lives . . . This gives Moriarty the opportunity to do what she does best, write about the human condition and connections that bind us all, with wicked humour, empathy and compassion – and a little bit of danger thrown in.’ COURIER MAIL

‘One of the few writers I’ll drop anything for. Her books are wise, honest, beautifully observed.’ JOJO MOYES

‘Moriarty is a deft storyteller who creates believable, relatable characters.’ WASHINGTON POST
