Sister by Rosamund Lupton
This book was lent to me by my Mum and although not something I would usually choose,I was drawn to the 'psychological crime thiller' plot tagline. I actually really like crime thrillers, but am often put off by the scary looking covers. I know, pathetic. I am a huge wimp when it comes to horror films and just can't watch them - I always have this fear crime thrillers will give me the same chills! Regardless of my reservations, I thought this sounded like something I would enjoy and quickly dug in.
Sister is a story about a girl who goes missing, and her sister who takes it upon herself to investigate her disappearance when the police don't seem to be following important leads. As this is a crime novel there are loads of twists and turns in the plot, and I don't want to give anything away. I'll just say that it takes so many different directions and has a really interesting ending.
At the back of the book there was a list of Rosamund Lupton's top ten reads, which I thought was a lovely idea. I wish more books did the same, as I love getting book recommendations. I'm currently writing all the ones I get recommended in the back of my diary; the list is mounting up!
As I say, I do love a crime thriller as I love seeing it all come together and tying up all the strands of the plot. I've read a couple of Jeffery Deaver novels which I enjoyed, in particular The Vanished Man, and am going to look out for other crime thrillers.
Do you like crime thrillers? Can you recommend any?
