Staff Reviews

Wow!  I read this mystery in a great big gulp!

Rosamund Lupton's debut novel is about a woman who is called back to London because her younger sister is missing.  The entire book is narrated by that woman, Bee, as she tells the absent Tess the story of her investigation into what she knows is foul play, despite no one in authority paying her any heed.

It's the voice that grabs you; it's the story that pulls you in; it's the ending that smacks you in the face.

I'll say it again - wow!

“In this debut novel, Beatrice is informed of her sister's disappearance and she returns home to London to fulfill what she assumes will be her usual big-sister-role over the free-spirited Tess. Instead, when Tess is found dead by apparent suicide, Beatrice delves into her life and becomes obsessed with solving what she believes to be a case of murder. Beatrice's recounting of her sister's death becomes a letter of tribute to Tess and touches the reader with the depth of a sister's bond. Written with a clever twist, Sister is both poignant and captivating.”
