Did You See Melody?

Join us as we welcome The Queen of Psychological Suspense to The Pigeonhole: it's Sophie Hannah with her stunning new pageturner Did You See Melody?

Cara Burrows lets herself into her hotel room and is shocked to find it already occupied - by a man and a teenage girl. A simple mistake on the part of the hotel receptionist - but Cara's fear intensifies when she works out that the girl she saw alive and well in the hotel room is someone she can't possibly have seen: the most famous murder victim in the country, Melody Chapa, whose parents are serving life sentences for her murder.

Did she really see Melody?
