Reviews

"The family Moorcroft has taken up residence in a remote corner of Scotland not unlike The Shining's isolated Colorado mountains. It's a suitably eerie setting for the haunting incidents that transpire after one of the family's 6-year-old identical twins falls to her death."--O Magazine, "The Season's Best Mysteries and Thrillers"
"The chilling story of the death of one identical twin sister and the effect that it has on her family. . . . Filled with secrets and lies, this gripping psychological thriller will keep readers absorbed until the final page."--Library Journal
"Tremayne (a pseudonym) does a terrific job of building suspense until events reach their climax in the midst of a violent storm."--Library Journal
"The next Gone Girl . . . [An] eerie literary spine-chiller."--Sunday Times Travel Magazine (U.K.)
"Chilling and utterly compulsive . . . As the action plays out in the claustrophobic confines of the cold, creepy island, it builds to an incredibly tense and shiver inducing conclusion."--The Sunday Mirror (UK)
"A tense psychological thriller that builds with every page."--The Sunday Post (UK)
"Stunning."--The Mail on Sunday (UK)
"Beautiful paced, teeming with psychological shivers, The Ice Twins is a notable debut."--The Times (UK)
"'The Ice Twins' is by turns a thriller, a mystery and a ghost story. Tremayne, the pseudonym for a London journalist and best-selling novelist, melds all these ingredients, coming up with enough twists, insights and chilly moments to make the story his - or her? - own and to keep a hungry reader savoring every spoonful. . . . A story set on an island known informally as Thunder deserves a thundering finish, which Tremayne deftly serves up, along with a touching coda that would play well on film."--Washington Post
"Will have you binge-reading to the end."--Redbook
"Unbearably gripping and suspenseful."--Sophie Hannah, internationally bestselling author of The Wrong Mother and The Dead Lie Down
"Richly evocative and profoundly eerie, The Ice Twins is a mesmerizing story of grief, loss and betrayal set against a backdrop that's as beautiful as it is haunted, just like the tragic family at the story's center."--Kimberly McCreight, New York Times bestselling author of Reconstructing Amelia
"With its creepy premise and bleak but beautiful settings, S. K. Tremayne has created a haunting, powerful thriller."--Paula Daly, author of Just What Kind of Mother Are You?
"Very eerie."--Marie Claire (UK)
"The Ice Twins has grip, pace and bags of atmosphere... It also has one of the cleverest endings of recent thrillers."--Sunday Times (UK)
"Strange and moving.... complex and dramatic... The advantages and hardships of island life are well depicted and the Gothic old is suitably creepy."--Sunday Herald (UK)
"A knife-sharp debut thriller . . . Gripping, sad and desperately poignant, this is a debut to die for."--The Daily Mail (UK)
"The death of one of the twin daughters of Sarah and Angus Moorcroft jump-starts this superb tale...Tremayne effectively delivers a psychological gothic thriller with supernatural overtones while avoiding clich s. Grief's debilitating effects on children and adults further elevate this gripping story."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
