Sister ~ Rosamund Lipton
Oddly unusual, crime/psychological thriller.
Fast paced page turner with nice twist at the end.
I enjoyed this ... but not sure if I enjoyed it because it was a good read ... or because it was readable - after that bad-taste-in-my-mouth last read (The Gathering). The book was engaging and, while the plot line jumped through time and place, it was easy to follow.
Characters, while maybe a little two dimensional, were believable. The narrative was told through Beatrice giving her statement to the prosecutor with addition information coming though her flashbacks or imaginary talks with her sister.
There seems something a little surreal about her deposition but I can say no more without revealing too much ....
