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’
    Louise Candlish
    ‘This sophisticated thriller is brilliantly written and utterly gripping’
    You, Mail Online
    ‘As the story unfolds it becomes increasingly chilling – making for a totally absorbing tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the end’

New York Times

    Candis
, Book of the Month
    ‘A skilfully wrought psychological thriller’
    Kirkus
    ‘Her journey towards finding out the truth makes for a creepy moving story with, of course, a twist in the tail. Lupton’s use of the second person, as Bee addresses Tess throughout, pays off creating a strong sense of their sisterly bond’

C’était un garçon intelligent, mais ce n’était pas un homme de génie. Il préférait les routes plates, quelques longues qu’elles fussent, à ces chemins abrupts où l’on est obligé de gravir et de bondir.

Je l’avais trouvé en conversation sérieuse avec un gentleman d’un certain âge, de forte corpulence, rubicond, et pourvu d’une chevelure d’un rouge flamboyant.

« Tout devant lui est vanité, parce que tous ont même sort, juste et méchant, bon, pur et impur, celui qui sacrifie et celui qui ne sacrifie pas ; il en est du bon comme du pécheur, de celui qui jure comme de celui qui craint de jurer. » (L’ECCLÉSIASTE, IX, 2.)

I Shall Wear Midnight
Very lucky, in fact. It often smelled better, and Tiffany wasn’t alone in thinking that the breath of a cow, warm and smelling of grass, was a kind of medicine in itself. The goats in the dungeon were nearly as good, though. They sat placidly chewing their supper over and over again, while never ta... Puis...

Il pointa le pied par réflexe et entendit le rat s’enfuir dans le noir avec un sifflement d’effroi. Il aurait pu frapper dans les mains, comme il le faisait chez lui pour chasser les bestioles qui traversaient la chambre. Mais il n’était ni à sa table de travail ni dans son lit. Il était dans une pi... Puis...
