The Carrier by Sophie Hannah

This is an engrossing psychological thriller with a seemingly simple case of mercy killing of an invalid wife by her sympathetic husband. Not so easy! There are interesting dynamics between the police and a small and loyal group of friends who band together to protect a mystery suspect. Every cast member has a fascinating tale to tell and the police have to pick their way through many layers to the truth. We are very excited about this author and hope to read more of her work. Two of her novels have been made into a series already by the BBC.
