Former detective Ray Flowers is contacted by Lily Spencer, an elderly lady who wants him to investigate the murder of her twin sister, Rose. The only thing is — Rose isn’t actually dead yet.
Rose’s death is foretold in a tarot card reading. But Ray doesn’t believe in that kind of thing.
Then an elderly woman is found stabbed to death, with a tarot card left in her outstretched hand.
And she’s not the first to die like this.
Lily may be old but she’s not defenceless. And she’s not giving up on her twin sister.
Can Ray help her stop a serial killer before anyone else dies?
You think you know how it will end . . . but this time you’re wrong.
‘The Sister’s Twin’ is the fourth book to feature the character of Ray Flowers, who was once a police officer but is now a private detective. I have been a fan of Jane’s work for a little while now so when I heard that she was due to release ‘The Sister’s Twin’ I knew that I had to read it as soon as I could. I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘The Sister’s Twin’ but more about that in a bit.
I have to be honest and say that it took me a little while to get into this story. I was tired when I started to read and finding it hard to concentrate. However once I got into the story then that was it and I found it increasingly difficult to put the book to one side for any length of time. The storylines intrigued me and I had to keep reading to see if Ray managed to solve the case before any further lives were lost. The pages turned over at a fairly fast rate as I worked my way through the story. At one point the pages turned that quickly that it was almost as if they were turning themselves. All too quickly I reached the end of the book and I had to say farewell to Ray and the gang. I found ‘The Sister’s Twin’ to be an interesting read, which certainly kept me guessing.
‘The Sister’s Twin’ is really well written. Jane certainly knows how to grab your attention and draws you into what proves to be a compelling read. Reading ‘The Sister’s Twin’ felt like being on an at times scary and unpredictable rollercoaster ride with more twists and turns than you know what to do with. I felt as though I was part of the story and that’s thanks to Jane’s very vivid and realistic storytelling.
In short, I really enjoyed reading ‘The Sister’s Twin’ and I would recommend it to other readers. I will certainly be reading more of Jane’s work in the future. The score on the Ginger Book Geek board is a very well deserved 4* out of 5*.
