Publisher's Summary

First there was The Guilty Wife. Now listen to Elle Croft's next twisty psychological suspense novel, The Other Sister.

How far would you go....

Gina Mills is desperate to be a newsreader, but her boss, the director of the struggling Channel Eight, won't help.

Walking home one night, Gina stumbles upon a dead body, and after calling the police, she makes the split-second decision to report the murder live. 

When questioned by the police, Gina can't remember specific details about her discovery, but these memory gaps are explained away as shock.  

...to uncover your family's deadly secret?

But when Gina finds a second body, it's clear she's being targeted. But why? 

And how is this connected to the death of Gina's younger sister so many years ago?

RETURNING AS JUST TOO BONKERS A PLOT TWIST FOR ME

I really enjoyed The Guilty Wife and was so looking forward to reading this and pre-ordered, confident that I would love this one too...……. but sadly though I percerviered past the butchering of a cat - which I always think is a lazy and unwelcome shorthand signal impending danger - but in fairness in this case was not as gratuitous or casually used as it was used as an integral part of the plot. I struggled on, in honour of the author's previous book but found myself less and less enthusiastic to return to it. I loved the way there were many loose ends and mysterious past events which intrigued - I enjoyed the journalistic life of Gina and the kind heartedness of Ryan but then it all fell apart. I must admit I dozed off and awoke to find myself in what seemed like a very different book with a very implausible if not impossible premise. Let's just say it was as unbelievable as the description of a person who put their books spine side into the bookcase to fit in with their all white apartment when such a design conscious book lover could simply have covered them with labelled white dustjackets which at least would have taken the guess work out of finding the book you wanted.
Like a good listener I switched off and rewound, hoping the part I read would not be quite so preposterous when read in sequence but noooooooooo … I was still very let down by this fanciful turn which almost touched on science fiction … and again I dozed off only to hear a small snippet of the reveal which seemed to be equally ridiculous. I must be honest, there are still gaps in the story I do not know but frankly I have heard enough and it has taken a turn for the almost laughable … were it not for the distressing pet slaughter which still leaves a nasty taste in an impossibly implausible tale.
Hard to rate as it did have great promise …. until it set off like the Starship Enterprise to explore strange and fantastical new territories leaving credibility far behind....
5 Star for mysterious build up and ??? for the very weird rest …
