THE GEMINI TWINS is an adult mystery novel which will appeal to fans of Gillian Flynn, Megan Abbott, and Mary Kubica.
If you think you know how this ends. Think again.
May knows what it’s like to be second best. She’s lived in the shadow of her captivating twin, June, for all of her nineteen years—a shadow that looms even with her sister gone. Exactly a year ago, June vanished without a trace, and the small town she disappeared from is now holding her funeral. Without a body. For closure.
Bullshit. May doesn’t need closure, she needs answers. Especially after finding an old newspaper article in June’s bedroom revealing a startling secret: at nineteen, their mother also went missing and on the exact same date June disappeared. Today. May doesn’t believe in coincidences and, knowing June loved treasure hunts, soon uncovers other clues hidden by her twin. Which directs her to the university town where her mother was abducted, and the original detective holds his own secrets about the case.
The biggest secret of all? May and her sister were a product of the abduction and, before she disappeared, June was searching for the man who took their mother. A man who was never caught and their mother never named. As May unravels more of her mother’s past and June’s disappearance, she knows she might be too late—but gaining real closure is better than an empty coffin. Even if it means confronting the monster who shares the blood in her veins.
