Waterstones Says

The bestselling author of the Tuva Moodyson mysteries delivers a taut, ruthlessly dark and faultlessly plotted thriller of a young woman who travels to New York to find out the truth about her identical twin’s sudden death.

Signed Edition

A Standard Edition is available here

From the acclaimed author of The Last Thing to Burn comes a new thriller about identity, rivalry and deceit.

The last thing a twin expects is to be alone...

Molly lives a quiet, contained life in London. Naturally risk averse, she gains comfort from security and structure. Every day the same.

Her identical twin Katie is her exact opposite: gregarious and spontaneous. They used to be inseparable, until Katie moved to New York a year ago. Molly still speaks to her daily without fail.

But when Molly learns that Katie has died suddenly in New York, she is thrown into unfamiliar territory. Katie is part of her DNA. As terrifying as it is, she must go there and find out what happened. As she tracks her twin's last movements, cracks begin to emerge. Nothing is what it seems. And a web of deceit is closing around her.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Will Dean writes a mean thriller, with a keen ear for what scares us. The streets of New York shine off the page, and the action rarely lets up. Highly recommended' - Sarah Hilary

'Tiptoes into Highsmith territory here. Pacy, exhilarating and jaw-dropping, it's a meditation on identity and loneliness as well as a bloody good pageturner. New York buffets the characters about its ruthless streets, just as the reader is propelled from one twist to the next' - Erin Kelly

'Will Dean manages to accomplish the rare blend of excellent writing and intriguing, ingenious plotting' - Liz Nugent

'Taut, suspenseful, chilling and surprising' - Gilly Macmillan

'Equal parts murder mystery and psychological thriller, Will Dean dazzles with First Born. A tense, taut plot that blows through unexpected twists and turns, you won't be able to look away until the final, shattering page' - Julie Clark

“Can assumptions about twins be dangerous..?”

I am sort of a twin. And by 'sort of' I mean not a twin at all.
