《柯夢波丹》評選2019年絕不可錯過的必讀作品

「令人深深著迷!媲美《蝴蝶夢》作者達夫妮·杜穆里埃。」暢銷書《最後的派黎思夫人》作者Liv Constantine
「簡直讓人欲罷不能的驚悚佳作!」─暢銷冠軍《罪人》作者Lisa Ballantyne

 Seraphine Mayes和她的雙胞胎哥哥Danny在家族的大莊園出生。在他們出生數小時後,母親跳下懸崖自殺,家中的年輕保姆失蹤,村里的人們開始對這家人耳語著各種恐怖的謠言及傳說。

 現在25歲的Seraphine剛經歷父親的死去,整理父親遺物時意外發現一張家庭照片,照片拍攝日期正是雙胞胎出生的那天,但她的父母只和其中一個嬰兒合影。她不禁懷疑或許她和Danny根本不是雙胞胎,她甚至不是在她以為的出生日誕生,而關於母親的死因,也逐漸浮現許多疑點與未揭發的真相。

 為什麼父母最喜愛的保姆會在那天失蹤?

她現在又身在何處?

她是這起悲劇的關鍵人物嗎?

'Entrancing, compelling, atmospheric, reminiscent of Daphne du Maurier. A beautiful read that delivers a shocking and satisfying ending' Liv Constantine, bestselling author of The Last Mrs Parrish

'Enthralling and addictive' Lisa Ballantyne, bestselling author of The Guilty One

Seraphine Mayes and her brother Danny are the first set of twins to be born at Summerbourne House. But on the day they were born their mother threw herself to her death, their au pair fled, and the village thrilled with whispers of a stolen baby.

Now twenty-five, and mourning the recent death of her father, Seraphine uncovers a family photograph taken on the day the twins were born featuring both parents posing with just one baby. Seraphine soon becomes fixated with the notion that she and Danny might not be twins after all, that she wasn't the baby born that day and that there was more to her mother's death than she has ever been told...

Why did their beloved au pair flee that day?
Where is she now?
Does she hold the key to what really happened?
