Sophie Hannah - Leaving ​and Leaving You
Hannah’s ​poetry, cunning in its precise use of traditional form, manages to bring into play the freedoms we associate with modernism. Here is a poet of immense resource, witty and hearbreaking by turns, always fully alive in her language. ‘Leaving and Leaving You’ focuses on love, loss and the different ways in which people – for better or worse – can be significant to each other. What draws us together and what keeps us apart? Hannah is fascinated by the ways in which others enter and leave our lives, and the imprints they make.

Queen ​of psychological crime Sophie Hannah returns with a new literary mystery and a puzzle that's impossible to solve...

Keen to avoid him, Nicki does a U-turn and makes a panicky escape. Or so she thinks. The next day, Nicki is pulled in for questioning in connection with the murder of Damon Blundy, controversial newspaper columnist and resident of Elmhirst Road. Nicki can't answer any of the questions detectives fire at her. She has no idea why the killer used a knife in a way that involved no spilling of blood, or why 'HE IS NO LESS DEAD' was painted across Blundy's study. And she can't explain why she avoided Elmhirst Road that day without revealing the secret that could ruin her life. Because although Nicki is not guilty of murder, she is far from innocent . . .

"What I intend to say to you will come as a shock..." With these words, Lady Athelinda Playford -- one of the world's most beloved children's authors -- springs a surprise on the lawyer entrusted with her will. As guests arrive for a party at her Irish mansion, Lady Playford has decided to cut off her two children without a penny . . . and leave her vast fortune to someone else: an invalid who has only weeks to live. Among Lady Playford's visitors are two strangers: the famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and Inspector Edward Catchpool of Scotland Yard. Neither knows why he has been invited -- until Poirot begins to wonder if Lady Playford expects a murder. But why does she seem so determined to provoke a killer? And why -- when the crime is committed despite Poirot's best efforts to stop it -- does the identity of the victim make no sense at all?
