Sisters. Allies. Liars.
The gripping new thriller from the bestselling author of Saving Sophie.
Stephanie is scared for her life. Her psychologist, Connie Summers, wants to help her face her fears, but Connie will never really understand her. Stephanie’s past has been wiped away for her own protection. Stephanie isn’t even her real name. But then, Dr Summers isn’t Connie’s real name either.
And that’s not all the women have in common. As Stephanie opens up about her troubled relationship with her brother, Connie is forced to confront her own dark family secrets.
When a mutilated body is dumped in plain sight, it will have devastating consequences for both women.
Who is the victim?
Who is to blame?
Who is next?
Gripping, tense and impossible to put down, Bad Sister will have fans of Sue Fortin, B A Paris and Linda Green hooked till the final page.
From the first page this offered a fast paced thrilling ride that was easy to read. Carrington pulled me through the emotional gamut as I couldn’t tell what or who to trust thanks to the intimate web of lies and secrets she wove through her intriguing set of characters.
Carrington writes this initial scene of two siblings watching their father die in a fire that is so terrifying, particularly due to the chain of events it triggers, you almost feel like you’re watching a horror movie unfold before you on the pages. Fear crawled across my skin, my heart skipped beats in time with the chills, and my breath stopped as I tried to take in the story playing out before me.
Stephanie is scared and has secrets complicating any help she might find. Connie can’t use her psychologist super power very well when she doesn’t have the whole truth. Dark family secrets and hidden identities abound as a gripping mystery entrenches itself around these two women. You throw DI Lindsay Wade into the mix who has her own struggles with feelings of guilt over her less than perfect actions during a previous investigation and the girl power mode takes off.
Short chapters which alternate between Lindsay and Connie’s perspectives have a smart, snappy tone that keeps you on the edge with twists and turns leading you to a shocking conclusion. An enthralling psychological thriller that will make you adore Carrington, by the time you’re done you’ll be hoping she writes more.
