To save her twin, she must take her identity.

One night Tila stumbles home, terrified and covered in blood. She's then arrested for murder, the first by a civilian in decades. The San Francisco police suspect that the drug Verve is involved, and offer her sister Taema a chilling deal to save her sister's life. Posing as Tila, she must infiltrate the crime syndicate running the drug to help bring it down. However, Taema's inquiries raise dangerous questions.

The sisters were raised by a cult which banned modern medicine. Yet as conjoined twins, they needed surgery to replace their failing heart, so had to escape. Now Tila discovers disturbing links between the twins' past and their present. Once unable to keep secrets, the twins now learn the true cost of lies in False Hearts by Laura Lam.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Just fantastic. Rarely have I torn through a book so quickly. Dark, smart, fast-paced & sexy -- Samantha Shannon, author of The Bone Season
False Hearts is that rarest of things - a fast-paced thriller with tons of heart and soul. Set in a chillingly believable future, it's bursting with original concepts and unforgettable characters. I defy anyone to put it down -- Sarah Lotz
I thoroughly enjoyed it, from its explosive beginning right through to a very satisfying end. This is very much a character-driven piece, and although the story is of twins, it is really Taema's tale. I can happily say False Hearts has been the highlight of my year's reading so far -- James Oswald
A strong debut from someone who's clearly got what it takes -- Peter F. Hamilton
False Hearts has an ingenious premise, and Laura Lam executes it flawlessly. Gritty and wise, your own pulse will be racing as you get caught up in this exciting tale -- Robert J. Sawyer
An intriguing and fast-paced tale * Heat *
A chilling read that will have you gripped from page one . . . A must read * Woman's Own *

A thought provoking, fast paced tale which uses characterization to capture reader's imaginations. A truly great read from a great writer * Starburst Magazine *
