A Dark Dividing
Journalist Harry Fitzglen is less than thrilled to write up the opening of some glittering new art gallery. But the boredom falls away when he meets Simone Anderson, whose oddly compelling photographs are on display. Harry loves a girl with a past, and Simone's is a doozy: what exactly happened to her long-disappeared twin sister? And what is her connection to another pair of twins, born nearly 100 years ago? Every question Harry asks points to the Welsh border and a ruined mansion called Mortmain House. As Harry delves into Mortmain's grim history, he finds himself drawn into a set of interlocking mysteries, each one more curious—and disturbing—than the last. Set in three different time periods, A Dark Dividing is supremely suspenseful: Even as the chills are running up your spine you will be fidgeting to find out what happens next in this atmospheric thriller by a master of the genre.
