"There are two sides to every story: yours and mine, ours and theirs, His & Hers. Which means someone is always lying. Anna Andrews finally has what she wants. Almost. She's worked hard to become the main TV presenter of the BBC's lunchtime news, putting work before friends, family, and her now ex-husband. So, when someone threatens to take her dream job away, she'll do almost anything to keep it. When asked to cover a murder in Blackdown-the sleepy countryside village where she grew up-Anna is reluctant to go. But when the victim turns out to be one of her childhood friends, she can't leave. It soon becomes clear that Anna isn't just covering the story, she's at the heart of it. DCI Jack Harper left London for a reason, but never thought he'd end up working in a place like Blackdown. When the body of a young woman is discovered, Jack decides not to tell anyone that he knew the victim, until he begins to realise he is a suspect in his own murder investigation. One of them knows more than they are letting on. Someone isn't telling the truth. Alternating between Anna's and Jack's points of view, His & Hers is a fast-paced, complex, and dark puzzle that will keep readers guessing until the very end"-- Provided by publisher.

His and hers—but which version is true? Anna, a BBC reporter goes to her home town to cover a murder. Jack is a detective working the case; he hides the fact he knows the victim. There are secrets and twists a plenty.

Alice Feeney's third novel is a mystery told from the perspectives of two former spouses. He is the lead detective in a small town, she is a BBC anchor/reporter. Both have connections to the deceased. Also dispersed in is the killer's perspective. It seems like everyone in the town has a reason to want to murder the first victim, and there are red herrings galore, right up until the end. Well written and plotted, this one is great fun and makes me want to go back and read her two earlier books. Highly recommended for those of us who enjoy good crime fiction.

A New & Noteworthy staff pick 2020. "His & Hers is a twisty dual-narrative that gives 'Gone Girl' a run for its money and leaves you wondering if you can trust anyone. I couldn't stop reading." — Christina Dalcher, bestselling author of "Vox." And I sure did not guess the killer!

As I read, I guessed at many different solutions to this complex puzzle, but the actual ending made all the clues click together in a very satisfying way. Don't miss this one.

Your best thriller yet, Alice Feeney! The His & Hers dual POVs plus the mysterious third person kept me guessing until the very end. I thought I was figuring things out, but kept misinterpreting the clues that were being dropped. So well done! Unreliable narrators to the nth degree. Loved all the pithy one-liners throughout. They are not necessarily motivational quotes for the most part, but would lend a philosophy class material for quite some time. The plot is by no means cozy. There is a vicious killer with an agenda. We also know that there are some mean girls who seem to have carried on with life leaving human and animal victims in their wake. Intricate and engaging. I was hooked from the first chapter.
