Fra goodreads: When her mom calls to tell her that Tess, her younger sister, is missing, Bee returns home to London on the first flight. She expects to find Tess and give her the usual lecture, the bossy big sister scolding her flighty baby sister for taking off without letting anyone know her plans. Tess has always been a free spirit, an artist who takes risks, while conservative Bee couldn’t be more different. Bee is used to watching out for her wayward sibling and is fiercely protective of Tess (and has always been a little stern about her antics). But then Tess is found dead, apparently by her own hand.

Bee is certain that Tess didn’t commit suicide. Their family and the police accept the sad reality, but Bee feels sure that Tess has been murdered. Single-minded in her search for a killer, Bee moves into Tess’s apartment and throws herself headlong into her sister’s life—and all its secrets.

Though her family and the police see a grieving sister in denial, unwilling to accept the facts, Bee uncovers the affair Tess was having with a married man and the pregnancy that resulted, and her difficulty with a stalker who may have crossed the line when Tess refused his advances. Tess was also participating in an experimental medical trial that might have gone very wrong. As a determined Bee gives her statement to the lead investigator, her story reveals a predator who got away with murder—and an obsession that may cost Bee her own life.

A thrilling story of fierce love between siblings, Sister is a suspenseful and accomplished debut with a stunning twist.

Anmeldelse: Sjældent har jeg været så begejstret for en bog i denne genre. Jeg købte den da jeg var i London sidste år, fordi jeg i lang tid havde følt mig tiltalt af dens cover og beskrivelse. Jeg forventede krimi med et twist, men det jeg fik var nærmere en smuk historie, med en lille smule krimielementer indover.

Bogen tog mig lang tid at læse, fordi jeg følte, den gik rigtig tæt på og derfor havde jeg brug for lidt tid til at bearbejde den. Jeg var følelsesmæssigt udmattet efter 30 sider og så er bogen altså lang. Dog slet ikke lang nok.

Det, der fascinerede mig mest, var helt sikkert relationerne i bogen. Det var så smukt, rørende og nærmest poetisk. Jeg følte varmen mellem de to søstre strømme ud fra hver eneste side i bogen, som ellers skulle forestille at foregå om vinteren.

Sproget var lidt pudsigt, idet bogen er fortalt gennem breve fra storesøsteren til lillesøsteren. Det føltes heldigvis ikke så overfladisk, sm jeg desværre synes breve i bøger har tendens til, tværtimod styrkede det både karaktererne og sproget, når først man havde vænnet sig til det.

Jeg er glad for, jeg endelig fik læst denne bog, og jeg vil helt sikkert læse mere af Rosamund Luptons forfatterskab fremover. Det her er en bog, jeg aldrig vil glemme og den sidder stadigvæk i mig. Jeg ved, at langt fra alle vil kunne lide den, men for mig står denne bog virkelig stærkt.
