About the Author

David Eddings was born in Washington State in 1931 and grew up near Seattle. He graduated from the University of Washington and went on to serve in the US Army. Subsequently, he worked as a buyer for the Boeing Aircraft Company and taught college-level English. His career as a fantasy writer, with his wife Leigh, has been spectacular.

Reviews

In a radical departure from their previous books (bestselling fantasies like The Belgariad and The Mallorean), the Eddings focus on the mysterious bonds between identical twins in this fast-paced psychological thriller that's part ghost story. The authors skillfully weave together the threads of twins Regina and Renata's life as seen through the eyes of Mark, a family friend and the twins' surrogate big brother. With identical DNA and so similar that even their mother can't tell them apart, the twins have developed their own language. When one is viciously murdered, the other regresses into this language and is committed to an institution. No one is sure which of the twins has survived, but they come to believe it is Renata. When Mark visits, she recognizes him, starts to recover but has no memory of the past. Mark, a graduate student, helps her return to the real world through campus life in Seattle and the aid of his housemates. When Renata recovers enough to lodge with her aunt, a police officer on the graveyard shift, she suffers terrible mood swings. Meanwhile, Seattle is plagued by a series of grisly homicides suggesting a serial killer. Mark, heavily troubled, comes to the chilling realization that the killings may be connected to Renata's frenzied outbursts and resolves to watch her closely. In a climactic nocturnal vigil, he discovers that there could be a disturbing supernatural explanation and that he and his housemates must use all their skills to protect the fragile girl they have come to care for. (July 1) Forecast: While marketing and promotion will target SF and fantasy venues, many Eddings fans are likely to be disappointed to find this novel so removed from the authors' usual. Handselling to thriller readers may or may not take up the slack. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

'The Eddingses are a definite gain to aficionados of crime writing ... well written, convincing fiction. What the Eddingses do best is to successfully fuse a serial killer story with subtle supernatural overtones.' SFX 'This remarkable book by the Eddingses demonstrates that there is plenty of life in the concept [serial killer thriller] yet. Handled with imagination and panache ... this is a thriller rich in elements of the bizarre that will delight.' Good Book Guide
