NEW YORK TIMES calls SISTER 'tear-jerking and spine-tingling'

Posted by in Book News, Fiction

We're absolutely delighted to share with you a preview of what the New York Times will be running this Sunday in their review of Rosamund Lupton's wonderful debut novel Sister.

Here's what they had to say:

'With Sister, Lupton who has a long history as a scriptwriter, enters the highly charged ring where the best psychological detective writers spar, her hands raised in a victory clench. She encircles her story with electrified ropes: new developments continually jolt her readers, which doesn’t stop them from eagerly – and a little sadistically – awaiting the impact of the next blow. 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
