Further praise for
Sister :
    ‘This superb debut novel has so many twists and turns as to cause dizziness – it’s the literary equivalent of “scream if you want to go faster” – and, just when you think things are slowing down to a peaceful, settled resolution, there’s one more stomach-churning final turn in store’
    Radio Times
    ‘Lupton’s crisp insights into grief and familial guilt are married to a confidently executed plot. Free from the genre’s more mawkish excesses, Lupton’s persuasive narrative voice is what keeps this classy debut on track’
    Independent
    ‘A compulsive thriller with genuine originality. Very clever, very surprising, very touching. I devoured it’

, Book of the Month

And I miss the hell out of her. I stay after work with Jesse to have a few beers and talk about the bar. He wasn’t pissed at me for the fight, but he’s definitely still tense.
