Product Description

A gripping, intriguing mystery…an entertaining, thrilling story.’ Nicki’s Life of Crime

They told us he had been missing for nearly two days, that he probably drowned. They told us a lie.

Megan was ten years old when her older brother, Zac, went missing among the cliffs, caves and beaches that surround the small seaside town of Whitecliff.

A decade later and a car crash has claimed the lives of her parents.

Megan and her younger sister Chloe return to Whitecliff one summer for the first time since their brother’s disappearance. Megan says it’s to get her parents’ affairs in order. There are boxes to pack, junk to clear, a rundown cottage to sell. But that’s not the real reason.

Megan has come to confront her family’s past after receiving a postcard on the day of her parents’ funeral. It had a photograph of Whitecliff on the front and a single letter on the back.

‘Z’ is all it read.

Z for Zac.

A totally gripping psychological thriller that will have fans of Louise Jensen, The Girl on the Train and The Silent Child absolutely hooked.

An absolutely fantastic read with brilliant characters. Megan just wanted to know what happened to her brother. What a twister of a read. Full of suspense. 5*. Netgalley and bookouture.

4.0 out of 5 stars Long buried family secrets and a touch of Cornish hospitality 24 June 2017
By Spicewalker - Published on Amazon.com
Having read some of Kerry Wilkinson’s Jessica Daniel series, I knew the guy could spin a good yarn. So when I heard that Bookouture were to publish a stand alone novel, Two Sisters I absolutely couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to read it. The story opens as Megan Smart is being informed that her parents have been killed in a car crash. No messing, no preamble, much like the officer’s relaying of the news we launch straight in. Now Megan and her sister Chloe have not been especially close to their parents, both packed off to boarding school as soon as possible and living largely separate lives, but it still comes as a shock, if only because of the cryptic postcard Megan receives just before the funeral.

It is this that leads Megan to drag her sister to the holiday home in Cornwall that they haven’t visited since the fateful summer ten years ago when their brother Zach disappeared. She knows that somewhere in the small village are the answers she longs for. Little does she know the startling chain of events that she is about to unleash by simply asking a few questions. Someone in the village knows something and it seems is willing to do anything to stop the truth from coming out.

Now compared to Kerry Wilkinsons’ police procedurals, there is a marked slowing of pace in Two Sisters. To be fair, this suits the sleepy and remote village location perfectly, and lends itself to the sense of foreboding and ill feeling that starts from almost the moment that the sisters set foot in Whitecliff. There is a complete lack of trust for outsiders from the locals, often typical of a small village location, and although the girls’ parents had a home in the village, very few people seem to have known them. Those that do are mysterious and aloof, and there is an air of dishonesty about each of them.

As this is a suspense rather than an out and out thriller, characterisation is key and the author has done a sterling job of creating the authenticity of the small town community, a village full of people who have known little other than Whitecliff for their entire lives. There is also an honesty about Megan who is battling more than the need for answers. Her fractious relationship with her mother has taken a toll on her personally and the nature of her condition appears well researched and represented. She is suffering from an eating disorder but this is not glorified or glossed over in any way. It is just represented, in Megans’s own voice, as they way that it is. She is acutely aware of what she is doing to herself but also that she cannot stop. There is no self denial, just an acceptance of who she is. Fair play to Mr Wilkinson for tackling this difficult subject and depicting it so accurately.

Chloe is a completely different character to her sister. Younger, she is shy and uncertain, but there is an honesty about her which is appealing. In fact both sisters are very likeable characters which is good as it is through Megan’s eyes that we see the majority of the action unfold. This complements the narrative as the reader is taken in by the same lies as Megan believes, and feels the suspicion that she feels. There is also that eeriness, the sense of menace, which accompanies the movement in the shadows, always just out of Megan’s, and our, line of sight. That spine tingling moment of doubt and apprehension as some of stark warnings to the girls first start to appear.

With all the dishonesty and the strange, sometimes violent, goings on you can feel the tension slowly building. It is quite fitting that the traditional Burning Boat celebration within the town should signal the start of the most nerve wracking sequence of the whole book. You know something is going to happen, but you cannot prepare yourself for the moment when everything reaches its shocking conclusion. There are so many suspects for what happened to Zach all those years ago littered throughout the book, so many people who appear guilty and could be trying to force Megan to leave, that it simply could be anyone. So much duplicity, so many lies. You will think that you know, but you really won’t.

If you like an intriguing and suspenseful read, full of duplicitous characters and mistrust, then you should absolutely give this a go. Fans of Kerry Wilkinson will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two Sisters 23 June 2017
By Ashrae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Actually 4.5 stars.
I am a big fan of this author. His Jessica Daniel series was one of the first I read on my Kindle when he was still self published and I have gone on to read all that series as well as his Andrew Hunter series and all his stand alones and thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of them so I just knew that the chances of me enjoying this were pretty good too.
This is a book of lies and hidden secrets and how their repercussions can tear people apart. It's a popular theme at the moment so there was the chance it would be a bit samey for me but the author has managed to weave something that, although similar, still has its own uniqueness. Sisters Megan and Chloe have returned to their parents holiday cottage to prepare it for sale, after their deaths in a car crash. At least this is what Megan has told Chloe. Megan has a secret she is keeping from Chloe. She has received a strange postcard, signed by someone calling themself Z. She believes that Z could stand for Zac, her brother. But her brother is missing, presumed dead. On arrival in the village, she soon discovers that not all is as it should be. There are definitely secrets to be uncovered. Determined to fine the truth, Megan stands her ground. Will she succeed in uncovering all the lies layer by layer to get to what really happened? And if she does, at what cost?
As always with this author's books, I connected to the main characters right from the off. There is always a certain amount of common ground between me and them in his books and this one was no exception. Like other books there were a fair few memory links from things from my childhood that kept making me nod and smile as I made associations with them. I do love a book that I connect with early on as I think it always makes for a better read for me. I especially gelled with Megan, her tenacity, guts and determination showed from the off. The way she was wary but still got on with things as she saw them, never showing her vulnerable side which was evident when we were allowed into her inner thoughts.
The plot was well worked out and expertly executed. I did guess a few things along the way but I wasn't 100% sure so I kept my eyes open. I think this did mar my overall enjoyment at times as I was a bit ahead of some of the reveals but, even so, they were very well weaved into the narrative.
The description was good too, I really felt the atmosphere of the village. How all wasn't quite what it should be. Who to trust, who was helping and who hindering. With the villagers "little ways" being a wee bit on the strange and eclectic side. All thing that lent themselves to it being a bit claustrophobic and dark at times.
Pacing was also good. with some of the topics in the book being a bit dark, there was a danger that the book could have been a bit heavy but the author managed to just keep it on the right side of too much. He also gave me as a reader a few lighter, breathing moments along the way which I gratefully took as respite.
All in all, a good solid read that left me on the whole satisfied. Can't wait to see what he serves up next time.

My thanks go to the Publisher and Netgalley for the chance to read this book.
4.0 out of 5 stars Talented versatile author--highly recommended! 24 June 2017
By Christine Terrell - Published on Amazon.com

Two Sisters is the third Kerry Wilkinson book I have read in the last couple of months. I am pleased to have discovered this author. Though he has been around, he came to my attention when Bookouture signed him to a contract. I must say I really enjoyed all three books. I found this particularly notable because they are of different genres. The first Jessica Daniel book (Locked In, aka The Killer Inside) is a police procedural; standalone Ten Birthdays is contemporary fiction; and this book, also a standalone, is a creepy psychological thriller.

Megan, a 20-year-old anorectic, and her 17-year-old sister Chloe are all alone in the world, having lost their brother ten years previous and their parents three months before the start of the story in an auto accident. Megan, especially, wants to find out what happened to their brother all those years ago. This brings the young women to Whitecliff, a small beachside village where their parents’ cabin is located and where brother Zac disappeared a decade ago. Someone must remember Zac, right? There must be some theories out there about what happened to him. If there are, no one’s talking. So what’s the deal?

This book started off in smoldering fashion. At first I wasn’t sure I liked Megan. She can be a bitch. But she grew on me as she has insight, fight, and determination. And she loves her little sister. Megan has issues, obviously. She tries to counteract these by controlling her eating, which gives her confidence in controlling other situations that come her way. Sometimes she is too brave and pushes the envelope further than most people would. This made me fear for her safety on multiple occasions. This went on throughout the entire book and put me on edge (a good thing) the entire time. The mood of the story is sinister, the creep factor is high, and it is not clear at all which characters can be trusted. I suspected almost everybody at one point or another to be involved in some sort of wrongdoing. The imagery of the setting adds to the prevailing air of menace. I did a lot of shifting around in my chair during this read; the last 20% was a real thrill ride.

In terms of criticism, there are two or three scenes that stretch believability, but they sure are exciting. I would have also liked Mr. Wilkinson to have delved just a bit more into the anorexia angle, which I thought was a great add to the setup.

Kerry Wilkinson writes solid stories. They aren’t the very best I have read, but they are very very good. I highly recommend Two Sisters (as well as his other two books that I have read). I am delighted he has such a large catalog to his name, quite amazing for such a young author. I will not hesitate to reach into my Wilkinson bag of books whenever I am looking for a good novel in which to immerse myself. In fact, my next read will be the second book of the Jessica Daniel series, Vigilante.

Thank you to Net Galley, Bookouture, and Mr. Kerry Wilkinson for an advanced copy of the novel. The opinions in the review are mine alone and are not biased in any way.
4.0 out of 5 stars Two Sisters 26 June 2017

Four stars to this latest offering from Kerry Wilkinson... a story full of complicated and intriguing characters. The setting is beautiful... the fictional Whitecliff, a small seaside village and tourist location. During the warm months, the town is divided... the locals and the beach kids. The beach kids are mostly teenagers living off their family money, on a break from school and sent there to keep them out of the way. The locals resent them, but need them. Used to living paycheck to paycheck, they need the business but resent the privileged lifestyle and lack of responsibility they see the beach kids enjoy. Fortunately, the division mostly has only resulted in a couple of arguments and scuffles. Our main character is somewhere in the middle.

Megan has returned to the village along with her younger sister to sort out the estate of her parents. They died recently in a car crash, leaving the two young women immensely wealthy. Neither understands why their parents kept the cottage in Whitecliff, seeing as they barely ever visited since their brother disappeared from there ten years ago. Megan has led teenager Chloe here for another reason though: she received a postcard from Whitecliff with only one letter on the back: Z. Z for Zac, the brother who mysteriously disappeared when they were children.

Megan is convinced her long lost big brother is lurking about, or at least someone knows what really happened to him. Her abrasive attitude and prying questions aren't making her many friends in the close-knit village. Is it simply because she's bringing up a bleak part of history, or is someone hiding something?

Megan is an insanely complicated character. She resents her parents, trusts everyone very little, and has some real problems with food. The woman barely eats, often experiencing dizzy spells and weakness. Some descriptions of her eating habits may be bothersome for a reader with a history of eating disorders. She also regularly samples pills from a stash her mother left behind, and we're left to wonder if there's really anything going on, or she's become paranoid and suspicious. Did Zac send that postcard? And if not, who did?

I received a copy of this book from Net Galley and Bookouture, thank you! My opinion is honest and unbiased.
