“Without so much as a motion or a sound, Marina and I are weaving words. We are sliding them along the bar of light from the hall that filters under the door. We are sending phrases, paragraphs, laughter, faster and faster, like flights of moths across the dark space of the room. Braiding the strands of our secret cocoon, we are nightspinning.” Growing up in rural Georgia, Susannah and her twin sister, Marina, silently communicated in a secret language they called “nightspinning.” But as they grew older, Susannah tired of having a doppelgänger, particularly one who could read her every thought. After college, when their mother died, Susannah made her escape. Years later, now an up-and-coming restaurant designer living in a handsome Philadelphia brownstone, Susannah has left the past safely behind her. But in doing so, she’s also left Marina behind, and this betrayal fills her with guilt. Then Marina is brutally murdered, and Susannah is haunted by inexplicable events: a funereal flower arrangement arrives from an anonymous admirer; she recognizes a song, not heard since childhood, emanating from the dark silence of her basement; she awakens one morning to find that a lock of her hair has been snipped off and taped to her bathroom mirror. Terrified to learn that similar events preceded Marina’s murder, Susannah is forced to ask herself: Is her sister’s killer now coming after her? Is she imagining a conspiracy where only coincidence exists? Or is Marina nightspinning from beyond the grave? Desperate to uncover the truth and escape her sister’s fate, Susannah grimly sets out to investigate on her own, fleeing her carefully orchestrated life and returning to an abandoned Georgia farmhouse to reveal the long-buried secrets that created a killer. A chilling, hypnotic read,The Nightspinnersis psychological suspense at its best.… (més)

Susannah heeft het gevoeld dat ze gevolgd wordt. Net als haar zusje, vlak voordat zij vermoord werd.

Na het overlijden van hun moeder raken de tweelingzussen Marina en Susannah DeBreem van elkaar vervreemd. Terwijl Susannah een succesvolle carriere opbouwt als binnenhuisarchtecte in Philadelphia, zoekt Marina de eenzaamheid van het platteland waar ze is opgegroeid.

Als Marina op gruwelijke wijze wordt vermoord, is Susannah ten einde raad. Ze wordt verscheurd door schuldgevoelens. Waarom heeft ze Marina's noodkreten genegeerd? Dan begint ze plotseling, allerlei ongwenste attenties te ontvangen van een anonieme persoon. Het blijken dezelfde 'cadeautjes' te zijn die haar zus kort voor haar dood kreeg...

Susannah durft niemand meer te vertrouwen, zelfs niet het rechercheteam dat zich met de zaak bezighoudt. In paniek vlucht ze naar een plek waar ze veilig denkt te zijn. Maar schijn bedriegt...

I didn't enjoy this book as much as I'd thought I would. This tale of twin sisters, one murdered and one surviving, didn't grip me at all. I found the heroine annoying, dull, and flat, and her constant introspection nothing more than narcissistic instead of holding any impact. I couldn't understand her rather flippant attitude towards her stalker, and when she finally figured out he was out to do her harm, I ended up just tossing the book aside and giving up. It felt like a book full of hate and bitterness, and while that may be what the author was going for, it certainly didn't feel like it was worth reading for me. I found the whole 'unresolved issues' thing with her beyond boring.

Not recommended. ( )
