CrimeReads' Most Anticipated Crime Books of Summer 2021 "Feeney lives up to her reputation as the "queen of the twist"...This page-turner will keep you guessing."
--Real Simple "Marriage has never been so disturbing...or so compelling. Alice Feeney has written a staggering novel filled with tension, suspense, and an ending that will leave you flabbergasted. You think you know where it's going, but you have no idea."
--Samantha Downing, bestselling author of My Lovely Wife "Chilling and clever, with a twist so sharp you'll get whiplash. Rock Paper Scissors is the kind of blistering, one-sit-read that Alice Feeney is just so incredibly good at."
--Chris Whitaker, bestselling author of We Begin at the End "I loved it!"
--Sarah Pinborough, bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes "Entertaining and grippingly suspenseful on every page, this is a book not to be missed."
--Deadly Pleasures "Rock Paper Scissors is a perfectly-plotted thriller that hooked me from the opening scene. A really gripping story with clever switch-back twists that kept me off-balance (checking over my shoulder!) the whole nail-biting way. A scissor-sharp portrayal of a marriage on the rocks. Atmospheric, entertaining and clever."
--Philippa East, author of Little White Lies "Deliciously dark . . . An exquisitely constructed, hugely entertaining thriller."
--Catherine Ryan Howard, author of The Nothing Man "This one's already been optioned, but I'd encourage everyone to read it before it heads to the screen...The two dovetail towards an explosive conclusion that leaves us with just enough ambiguity to linger in the reader's mind long after finishing."
--CrimeReads "This complicated gothic thriller of dueling spouses and homicidal writers is cleverly plotted and neatly tied up."
--Kirkus "Sharp, cunning, and packed with shocks, Rock Paper Scissors gives new meaning to the word 'twisty.' A broken marriage, so many secrets, and a setting that will literally give you chills: just when you think you know what's going on, Alice Feeney sets off a new shockwave."
--Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of The Girls Are All So Nice Here "Not just fiendish but positively Feeneyish - dark, ingenious and very clever."
--Cara Hunter, author of Close to Home
