Publisher's Summary

To save her twin, she must take her identity.

One night Tila stumbles home, terrified and covered in blood. She's then arrested for murder, the first by a civilian in decades. The San Francisco police suspect involvement with Verve, a powerful drug, and offer her twin sister, Taema, a chilling deal. Taema must assume Tila's identity and gather information to bring down the drug syndicate. The police may then let her sister live. However, Taema's investigation raises ghosts from the twins' past.

The sisters were raised by a cult which banned modern medicine - yet as conjoined twins, they needed lifesaving surgery to replace their failing heart. And with help from coconspirators, they escaped. Taema now discovers that Tila had found links between the cult and the city's criminal underworld. The twins were once unable to keep secrets but will learn the true cost of lies.

Future of fiction

False hearts creates a believable dystopia of cutie America. It twists and turns, switching narrator between sisters. Shows excellent character development, good ethical considerations and I love that the main driving motivation is sisterhood, though there is some romance. Less queer than Laura Lams other novels but does normalize same sex relationships. Very enjoyable escapism holiday read

What a story!!

I usually can't read sci-fi or futuristic stories because I have a hard time with the imagery. This one is the exception. I could envision everything, thanks to the wonderful descriptions from the author and beautiful narrative of January. I loved this book!

Heavy on the cyber, light on the punk

This is a pretty good near-future sci-fi amateur detective story. It doesn’t quite scratch the cyberpunk itch I came for, because in the end its ethics are uncomplicated and it lacks the cynicism I expect from the genre. The world building is great though.

A very good story, nicely written.

A nicely slow starting story, moving to gripping . Thank you Laura Lam for the journey.
