The astounding true story behind the major new motion picture starring Letitia Wright and Tamara Lawrance

'A compelling and tragic story' Mail on Sunday
'Breathtaking' Independent
'Extraordinary' New York Times Review of Books

When identical twins, June and Jennifer Gibbons were three they began to reject communication with anyone but each other, and so began a childhood bound together in a strange and secret world. As they grew up, love, hate and genius united to push them to the extreme margins of society and, following a five week spree of vandalism and arson, the silent twins were sentenced to a gruelling twelve-year detention in Broadmoor.

Award-winning investigative journalist Marjorie Wallace delves into the twins' silent world, revealing their genius, alienation and the mystic bond by which the extremes of good and evil ended in possession and death.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Strange, riveting... Thanks to Marjorie Wallace, thanks to the twins' incorrigible brilliance, we now have some idea of what it is like to stand in front of a dark mirror * London Review of Books *
A remarkable (and finally tragic) story which, in its depth, penetration and detail, no less than its extraordinary subject matter, must be seen as outstanding, a testimony to something extraordinary in the author herself * New York Times Review of Books *
A compelling and tragic story * Mail on Sunday *
Breathtaking * Independent *
