Waterstones Says

From the bestselling author of The Woman Who Disappeared comes another faultlessly plotted thriller revolving around festering resentments and crumbling façades, as two very different sisters decide to do a lifeswap for a week - with harrowing consequences.

Tasha has always felt in the shadow of her older sister, Alice. Their lifestyles couldn't be more different; Alice is married to wealthy entrepreneur Kyle and has a high-flying career, Tasha is married to her childhood sweetheart and lives in a Bristol suburb with their four-year-old twins.

When Alice realises that Tasha is struggling - with money, the kids, losing her identity - she suggests they do a lifeswap for a week. Alice and Kyle will come to stay at Tasha's terraced house to look after the twins, while Tasha and Harry spend the week in Alice and Kyle's Venice apartment.

But a few days in, it all goes terribly wrong. Tasha receives a phonecall to say Alice is in hospital and Kyle is dead after an intruder broke into their house. They think it must have been a burglary gone wrong.

Until a note arrives through the letterbox saying It was supposed to be you.

Who was there that night, and why?

Is it really Tasha they are targeting?

And can these two sisters find the answers they need, or are they about to stumble upon something more sinister?

MEDIA REVIEWS

I raced through The Wrong Sister - it’s such a masterclass in building tension from the dream Venice break at the start to the nightmare it becomes. The solution to the mystery is so clever I was nowhere near guessing it! I loved it. - HARRIET TYCE

The Wrong Sister is Claire Douglas at her finest - page-turning, compelling and utterly addictive. I couldn't put it down! - LUCY CLARKE

Full of twists and turns, with a relatable and all too human cast of characters. No one seeds shocking secrets into seemingly ordinary families quite like Claire Douglas. Hugely enjoyable! I loved it. - EVE CHASE

- - PRAISE FOR CLAIRE DOUGLAS

I loved this twisty novel - RICHARD OSMAN

Few people do psychological thrillers as claustrophobic and as creepy as Claire Douglas - TIM WEAVER

Spine-chilling - THE SUNDAY TIMES

A chillingly atmospheric thriller - JP DELANEY

Clever and terrifically compelling - SARAH PEARSE

Devotees of domestic noir will love the multiple perspectives and shifts in time that Claire Douglas uses to complicate her nervy narrative - SUNDAY TIMES CRIME CLUB

“This one missed the mark for me...”

I've read all of Claire Douglas's thrillers and they vary so much in quality. She has written some absolutely brilliant ones - but sadly this isn't one of them. There were so many characters,... More
