Isolte and Viola are twins. Inseparable as children they've grown into very different adults: Isolte, a successful features writer for a fashion magazine with a photographer boyfriend and a flat in London, and Viola, desperately unhappy and struggling with a lifelong eating disorder.
What happened all those years ago to set the twins on such different paths to adulthood? As both women start to unravel the escalating tragedies of a half-remembered summer, terrifying secrets from the past come rushing back - and threaten to overwhelm their adult lives...
"A perfect R&J summer read, a psychological thriller of sisters and a dreadful childhood incident, the details of which are drip fed to us throughout the book, building layers of complexity to the story at each revelation. … highly compulsive."
Sarah Broadhurst, The Bookseller
