The Ice Twins

A TERRIFYING PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER "By turns a thriller, a mystery and a ghost story....THE ICE TWINS draws from other, similar thrillers on the shelf. Ira Levin's "Rosemary's Baby," Thomas Tryon's "The Other "and Ken Follett's "Eye of the Needle . . . "come to mind." -"Washington Post" A year after one of their identical twin daughters, Lydia, dies in an accident, Angus and Sarah Moorcroft move to the tiny Scottish island Angus inherited from his grandmother, hoping to put together the pieces of their shattered lives. But when their surviving daughter, Kirstie, claims they have mistaken her identity--that she, in fact, is Lydia--their world crashes in once again. As winter encroaches, Angus is forced to travel away from the island for work, Sarah is feeling isolated, and Kirstie (or is it Lydia?) is growing more disturbed. When a violent storm leaves Sarah and her daughter stranded, they are forced to confront what really happened on that fateful day.

"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""" "The next "Gone Girl" . . . [An] eerie literary spine-chiller." ""Sunday Times Travel Magazine" (U.K.)"" "Very eerie." ""Marie Claire "(UK)"" "Stunning." ""The Mail on Sunday "(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)"" "A knife-sharp debut thriller . . . Gripping, sad and desperately poignant, this is a debut to die for."--The Daily Mail (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) "The Ice Twins has grip, pace and bags of atmosphere... It also has one of the cleverest endings of recent thrillers."--Sunday Times (UK) "Beautiful paced, teeming with psychological shivers, The Ice Twins is a notable debut."--The Times (UK) "Stunning."--The Mail on Sunday (UK) "A tense psychological thriller that builds with every page."--The Sunday Post (UK) "Very eerie."--Marie Claire (UK) "Chilling and utterly compulsive . . .

K. Tremayne has created a haunting, powerful thriller."--Paula Daly, author of Just What Kind of Mother Are You? "The next Gone Girl . . . [An] eerie literary spine-chiller."--Sunday Times Travel Magazine (U.K.) "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 "Unbearably gripping and suspenseful."--Sophie Hannah, internationally bestselling author of The Wrong Mother and The Dead Lie Down "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 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 "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 cliches. Grief's debilitating effects on children and adults further elevate this gripping story."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Will have you binge-reading to the end."--Redbook "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 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
