Your sister. Her secret. The betrayal.
There is no bond greater than blood . . .
When the body of a woman is found stabbed to death, the blame falls to her twin sister. But who killed who? And which one is now the woman behind bars?
Zara and Miranda have always supported each other. But then Zara meets Seb, and everything changes. Handsome, charismatic and dangerous, Seb threatens to tear the sisters’ lives apart – but is he really the one to blame? Or are deeper resentments simmering beneath the surface that the sisters must face up to?
As the sisters’ relationship is stretched to the brink, a traumatic incident in Seb’s past begins to rear its head and soon all three are locked in a psychological battle that will leave someone dead. The question is, who?
Claustrophobic and compelling, Amanda Robson is back in a knock-out thriller perfect for fans of B.A. Paris and Paula Hawkins.
Nothing.’ He grins again. ‘Just the name of someone I once knew.’
Zara, you and your lover follow me towards the sofa, wrapped together like a pair of climbing plants. I pour you a glass of wine each, which you untangle yourselves to accept, and then we all sit in a row: Sebastian in the middle on our large brown sofa, my left thigh pressed against his right. I shift away a little. He turns to me and gives me another shot of his grin. I hold steady, lowering my eyes. I don’t grin back.
He takes a sip of wine and asks, ‘How’s your job going?’
‘Hard work. Heavy hours but it’s rewarding all the same.’
‘Did Zara tell you I had an interview with Harrison Goddard?’
I try to suppress a grin. ‘She might have mentioned it; she does sometimes talk about you,’ I say.
‘They’ve just offered. Today.’ There is a pause. ‘I’ve already accepted.’
My stomach tightens. So. My sister’s boyfriend is coming to work in my office. A man with dangerous eyes and an over-exuberant grin.
‘When do you start?’ I ask.
‘Be prepared. They like to take their pound of flesh.’
‘That’s why I love photography,’ you chip in. ‘It gives me freedom and range.’
My stomach curdles as you say that. It sounds so pseudy. But it’s true, you have always loved photography, ever since you were a young girl.
‘I’m used to it. The firm I came from in London were just the same,’ Sebastian continues.
‘What made you leave London?’ I ask for the sake of something to say. ‘Isn’t London the Metropolis? The place to be?’
‘I was brought up here in Bristol. My parents still live here. I just wanted to move back to where I grew up. It’s so much smaller, so much more charming than London.’
Sebastian suddenly loses interest in conversation with me. He leans across and kisses you. You melt together on the sofa like an octopus. When you have finished exploring each other’s mouths, Sebastian retrieves his wine glass.
