A Room Swept White by Sophie Hannah

TV producer Fliss Benson receives an anonymous card at work.  The card has sixteen numbers on it, arranged in four rows of four – numbers that mean nothing to her.

On the same day, Fliss finds out she’s going to be working on a documentary about miscarriages of justice involving cot death mothers wrongly accused of murder.  The documentary will focus on three women: Helen Yardley, Sarah Jaggard and Rachel Hines.  All three women are now free, and the doctor who did her best to send them to prison for life, child protection zealot Dr Judith Duffy, is under investigation for misconduct.

For reasons she has shared with nobody, this is the last project Fliss wants to be working on.  And then Helen Yardley is found dead at her home, and in her pocket is a card with sixteen numbers on it, arranged in four rows of four…

Peer & Press Reviews

Sophie Hannah has quickly established herself as a doyenne of the ‘home horror’ school of psychological tension, taking domestic situations and wringing from them dark, gothic thrills…  Combining probability theory, poetry and murder, this is a densely plotted suspenser with a coded puzzle that would grace a Golden Age mystery.

Financial Times

This book’s triumph is that it is not just a perfectly executed psychological thriller, but a pertinent meditation on society itself.


A convincing narrative of miscarried justice and individual trauma…  Hannah produces an enthrallingly complex plot whose serious themes are never undercut by her knack for comedy.
