Reviews

British author Rayne (Tower of Silence) makes her U.S. debut with an intriguing if flawed psychological thriller involving conjoined twins. A bitter divorce has left London reporter Harry Fitzglen hard up and cost him his job in "the upper echelons of Fleet Street." Now working for a tabloid, Harry reluctantly agrees to cover the opening of a photography exhibit at a new Bloomsbury art gallery. Harry's editor suggests that he may find an interesting story in the mystery that surrounds the photographer featured at the galley, Simone Marriot, whose real last name is Anderson. At the opening, Harry meets and falls for Simone, but the focus soon shifts to the past-to the 1899 travails of Charlotte Quinton, who's expecting twins, and to Simone's own youth. Simone had a twin sister whose fate doesn't become clear for a while. A hackneyed ending undermines the power of the novel's earlier sections. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Journalist Harry Fitzglen is not thrilled about covering the opening of a new art gallery, but when he meets Simone Anderson, a photographer with a missing twin and a mysterious past, he finds himself delving into the grim history of a ruined mansion on the Welsh border, where he uncovers mysteries related to another set of twins born nearly 100 years before. His investigation will put his sanity, and Simone's safety, at risk. Verdict Part ghost story, part psychological thriller, Rayne's (Tower of Silence) lackluster novel is too fond of last-minute solutions, contrived connections, and the deus ex machina to satisfy fully discerning readers.-Colleen S.
