White Bodies by Jane Robins
This chilling psychological suspense novel from Jane Robins explores the dark side of love and the unbreakable ties that bind two sisters together. It is excellent debut novel. The plot revolves around two main characters: Tilda and Callie. Twin sisters who couldn’t be more different. Tilda and Callie narrate the story from their own objective viewpoints providing back ground to their childhood and motivations to the present time; each time you think you have guessed what will happen – it doesn’t. The story is completely unpredictable. A great plot with lots of twists and turns. This gives the reader perspective to both their personalities and we learn about their characters.
The basis of the plot is Felix and Tilda who seem like the perfect couple: young and in love, a financier and a beautiful up-and-coming starlet. But behind their flawless facade, not everything is as it seems.
Callie, Tilda’s unassuming twin, has watched her sister visibly shrink under Felix’s domineering love. She has looked on silently as Tilda stopped working, nearly stopped eating, and turned into a neat freak, with mugs wrapped in cling film and suspicious looking syringes hidden in the bathroom bin. She knows about Felix’s uncontrollable rages and has seen the bruises on the white skin of her sister’s arms.
Worried about the psychological hold that Felix seems to have over Tilda, Callie joins an Internet support group for victims of abuse and their friends. However, things spiral out of control and she starts to doubt her own judgment when one of her new acquaintances is killed by an abusive man. And then suddenly Felix dies – or was he murdered?
White Bodies will make you think about the way we think about relationships of all kinds, obsession, love, and the violence we inflict on one another and ourselves.
A gripping work of suspense from a startling new voice in fiction. If you like chilling psychological suspense this book is for you. The swearing isn’t gratuitous but if you abhor the use of expletives in any context this isn’t book isn’t for you. (Although, you will miss out on a brilliant story). If you love drama, tension, shock value and an completely engrossing pace then look forward to its release date on the 28 December 2017.
