Alice Feeney delivers another novel of shockingly untrustworthy characters in Rock Paper Scissors.
As the Wrights drive to a weekend retreat, it’s frostier inside the car than the snowstorm outside. Who is to blame for the tension?
Adam suffers from face blindness, but it’s his obsessive working that leaves Amelia feeling unloved and unseen. Jealous Amelia sneaks Adam’s phone out of the car before this Hail Mary pass at a romantic weekend.
She lies to him when he asks if she’s seen it. He knows she’s lying. We know this because Feeney treats the reader to both husband and wife’s point of view.
They’re doomed from the start, but the twist near the end is a spectacle worth turning pages toward.
I’d recommend this book to fans of Gillian Flynn or Ruth Ware—the blizzard setting and runaway ending would please anyone who liked One By One.
