Synopsis

Sister by Rosamund Lupton

Nothing can break the bond between sisters ...When Beatrice gets a frantic call in the middle of Sunday lunch to say that her younger sister, Tess, is missing, she boards the first flight home to London. But as she learns about the circumstances surrounding her sister's disappearance, she is stunned to discover how little she actually knows of her sister's life - and unprepared for the terrifying truths she must now face. The police, Beatrice's fiance and even their mother accept they have lost Tess but Beatrice refuses to give up on her. So she embarks on a dangerous journey to discover the truth, no matter the cost.

Reviews

A psychological murder mystery written with literary flair . . . Be prepared for page-turning. * Red Magazine * Fast-paced and absurdly entertaining . . . Along with a juicy mystery, it resounds with an authentic sense of sisterly love and loyalty. * Boston Globe * Lupton's classy debut is a welcome and exciting addition to the genre. * The Lady * A heart-tugging, tense mystery . . . It is very good. * Bookseller * This superb debut novel has so many twists and turns as to cause dizziness - it's the literary equivalent of 'scream if you want to go faster' - and just when you think things are slowing down to a peaceful, settled resolution, there's one more stomach-churning final turn in store. * Radio Times * A chilling, gripping, tragic, heart-warming, life-affirming enigma of a story. * Booklist * Tense, gripping and a total page-turner. -- Richard Madeley * Woman's Own * Beautifully written - you believe every word. -- Judy Finnegan * Woman's Own * Lupton's crisp insights into grief and familial guilt are married to a confidently executed plot. Free from the genre's more mawkish excesses, Lupton's persuasive narrative voice is what keeps this classy debut on track. * Independent * This sophisticated psychological thriller is brilliantly written and utterly gripping. * YOU Magazine * Stunningly accomplished from first page to last, this is the most exciting debut thriller I've read all year. The suspense crackles, and the twists come thick and fast, but more than that it has a touching poignancy that brings tears to your eyes . . .Written with the power and panache of a young Daphne du Maurier, it s devastatingly good, and announces the arrival if a truly original talent. * Daily Mail * Original, spooky and clever, this thriller is utterly compelling. * Closer * With SISTER, Lupton enters the highly charged ring where the best psychological detective writers spar, her hands raised in a victory clench. Like Kate Atkinson, Patricia Highsmith and Ruth Rendell, Lupton builds suspense not only around the causes and details of her story's brutal denouement, but also around the personalities . . . Both tear-jerking and spine-tingling, SISTER provides an adrenaline rush that could cause a chill on the sunniest afternoon. * New York Times * Nicci French via Ford Madox Ford, anyone? Lupton's debut is an exceptionally confident domestic gothic thriller...it also packs a devastating punch. * Guardian * Truly marvellous! As compelling as it is stylish, SISTER exists in that rare place where crime fiction and literature coincide. -- Jeffrey Deaver
