Synopsis

When India falls to her death from a bridge over a railway, her sister Poppy returns home to Brighton for the first time in years. Unconvinced by official explanations, Poppy begins her own investigation into India's death. But the deeper she digs, the closer she comes to uncovering deeply buried secrets. Could Matthew Temple, the boyfriend she abandoned, be involved? And what of his powerful and wealthy parents, and his twin sister, Ana? Enter the mysterious and ethereal Jenny: the girl Poppy discovers after hacking into India's laptop. What is exactly is she hiding, and what did India find out about her? Taking the reader on a breathless ride through the winding lanes of Brighton, into its vibrant party scene and inside the homes of its well-heeled families, The Other Twin is startling and up-to-the-minute thriller about the social-media world, where resentments and accusations are played out online, where identities are made and remade, and where there is no such thing as truth ...

Customer Reviews

"The Other Twin" is a superbly crafted contemporary modern book by debut author L V Hay and I'm astounded by the quality of the excellent and faultless writing for a first time novel. I was drawn into this story straight away and it held my attention throughout. Poppy receives a phone call to say her sister India has died after falling from a railway bridge. She returns to her home town of Brighton after many years and unconvinced with official explanations she starts her own investigations into India's death. But is it safe to uncover long buried secrets and will her estranged family and friends still be the same? Could her ex boyfriend Matthew be involved and what will Poppy find in India's personal online blog? I found the whole plot line very interesting and entertaining, there's also a dark and disturbing storyline running simultaneously to India's death - at times this had me a little confused as to what was going on - but by the end this all came together seamlessly and you comprehend exactly what it all meant. "The Other Twin" is a very character driven novel - I'm not sure I liked Poppy but that's just my opinion - and is set in the very vibrant town of Brighton and the LGBT community. There's a very sensitive issue at the heart of this book and can imagine a lot of younger readers will enjoy this story too. I didn't see the end coming and was quite pleased as to how it turned out. I also liked the use of social media in the story - which is ever present these days in our lives - and this definitely gave the book a more realistic and up to the minute atmosphere. This book to me was less of a psychological thriller and more of a family style saga with twists and turns but I still really enjoyed it and would happily read more by this author in the future, she's talented, very polished in her writing and has a very clear and modern imagination.
