Summary

Fifteen years after saving only one of two drowning identical twin girls, Dave Quinn meets Anne, a struggling Canadian artist and the woman he had rescued as a child, who is drawn back to the scene of the old tragedy by the specter of her dead sister, who is out to avenge her missed chances and live.

Critic reviews

"Plenty of chills... Both nature at large and human nature (for the living and the dead) contribute to this book's impact. You'll come away from it shaken by the force of those tides." (Faren Miller)
"This story of good and evil siblings examines how we all learn to live with who we are, and does so through supple writing and a tense and carefully executed plot... Blaylock combines the supernatural with a deep understanding of contemporary California and human nature, producing a book with appeal for both fantasy fans and readers of realistic fiction." (Publishers Weekly)

Wonderfully elevated language

A cut above the usually badly written fiction. This author knows hoe to write. A reminder of Hemingway. Wonderfully adverb free for the most part.

This is a great book. Blaylock at his best.

I always love Blaylock's ability to craft a great story with interesting characters - the protagonist is always interesting and the bad guy, damn creepy and Edmond is super creepy!
