Smart, wilfull, incautious and nearly terminally curious, Lily Pascale-university lecturer and part-time sleuth-faces her most baffling case in Seaside, when one-half of a pair of identical twins turns up dead.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
In this third installment in Thomas' series starring Lily Pascale, the twentysomething amateur sleuth is living in a rented beach cottage in South Devon, teaching literature part time at a nearby university. When famous local writer Emma Winter asks her to look into a death, Lily is intrigued by both the crime and the large amount of money Emma offers her to take the job. It seems that one of the Carter twins, Alex and Laura, has committed suicide. But which one is still alive? The suicide note is signed by Laura, but the living twin also claims to be Laura. The twins' parents are dead, and their brother Tim can't tell the difference between his completely identical sisters. Lily begins to investigate and soon teams up with new neighbor, Jack, a handsome American filmmaker who backs off every time things start to get intimate. Readers will fall hard for hip, smart, independent Lily, whose tough-girl image belies a huge--and vulnerable--heart. Jenny McLarin

British author Thomas's compelling third Lily Pascale mystery (after 2004's In Your Face) finds the young literature professor at home on a dark and stormy night when a celebrated crime writer, Emma Winter, knocks at the door of her remote Devon cottage and offers her an ungodly sum of money to investigate the recent suicide of an 18-year-old twin. Or was the apparent suicide really murder? And which twin is dead, anyway? The suicide note is signed Laura, but the surviving twin insists that she's Laura. And why does Emma, who refuses to explain why she's interested in these twins, care? Before Lily can figure out whodunit (and who was done in), a rock star is murdered and incest is uncovered. Meanwhile, Lily is increasingly tempted to chuck her university job and take up detecting full time. Then there's the handsome American screenwriter who's just moved in next door. This novel of mixed-up identities, murder and malice sizzles.
