Eerily attuned to one another, twins Regina and Renata are so identical that even their mother can’t tell them apart. Then tragedy strikes: a vicious attack leaves one twin dead and the other so traumatized that she turns totally inward, incapable of telling anyone what happened or even who she is. She remains lost to the world, until the day Mark, a family friend, comes to visit–and the young woman utters her first intelligible word.
As she recovers, still with no memory of the past, her nightmares grow steadily more frightful, followed by wild fits of hysteria and dark mood swings. Her strange outbursts seem to coincide with the grisly serial murders that have begun plaguing Seattle. Could she be the killer? Determined to dispel his suspicion, Mark stakes out her home. The unholy sight he witnesses one night will haunt his soul for the rest of his life. . . .
Well this was a Surprise!
David Eddings really went out of his genre with this one, and boy did he hit it out of the park! His previous works were Fantasy, This is more Murder/Mystery.
Interesting characters with substantial development that doesn’t detract from the action. Plenty going on in the plot.
I was unable to put this one down.
This is a definitely a novel that earns it’s place on my Bookshelf.
Give it a try, I think you’ll like it.
