Review quote

Truly marvellous! As compelling as it is stylish, SISTER exists in that rare place where crime fiction and literature coincide. -- Jeffrey Deaver Nicci French via Ford Madox Ford, anyone? Lupton's debut is an exceptionally confident domestic gothic thriller...it also packs a devastating punch. Guardian 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 Original, spooky and clever, this thriller is utterly compelling. Closer 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 This sophisticated psychological thriller is brilliantly written and utterly gripping. YOU Magazine 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 Beautifully written - you believe every word. -- Judy Finnegan Woman's Own Tense, gripping and a total page-turner. -- Richard Madeley Woman's Own A chilling, gripping, tragic, heart-warming, life-affirming enigma of a story. Booklist 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 heart-tugging, tense mystery ... It is very good. Bookseller Lupton's classy debut is a welcome and exciting addition to the genre. The Lady Fast-paced and absurdly entertaining ... Along with a juicy mystery, it resounds with an authentic sense of sisterly love and loyalty. Boston Globe A psychological murder mystery written with literary flair ... Be prepared for page-turning.

Customer reviews

At the start, I could not put this book down. It is very easy to read and was moving along at a very good pace. The relationship between the sisters is so touching, so beautiful, I was close to tears from the very first page. However, once I got past a two thirds mark, the story started to drag on and I began to lose interest. The twist at the end spoilt the whole book for me, however I didn't mind the end itself. Overall, a pretty good book and I have recommended it to several people.show more

I enjoyed this novel. The ending was unusual but made sense of many of the things mentioned throughout the story. The growth in the main character as she abandons her shallow and not happy life in her quest for the truth of what happened to her sister gives depth to the novel also. Not for everyone but worth a read for lovers of psychological dramas.show more
