My Thoughts: 5/5 stars!
Nothing beats a great psychological thriller. I will say, it was kind of funny to me picking this one up for the simple fact that my mom’s name is Jayne Robins. Definitely confused me at first! WHITE BODIES by Jane Robins is the perfect domestic thriller about a couple and the lengths a twin sister will go to protect the other.
Felix and Tilda have the seemingly perfect relationship, but in the privacy of their own home he controls every aspect of her life. Tilda has stopped working, stopped eating, and has turned into something of a neat freak. Callie watches on helplessly as her sister deteriorates and she’s no stranger to Felix’s fits of rage because she sees the evidence on her sister’s beautiful skin. Callie wants to save her sister and she joins an online support group for victims of abuse. When Felix turns up dead, Callie begins to question what is real and what is in her head.
This is told from Callie’s perspective and Robins really brings the reader deep into her mind. It keeps the reader guessing and not quite knowing what is reality. The psychology behind the relationships of twins is always intriguing to me and it’s a subject I love having in psychological thrillers (especially when it’s done right!).
Overall, if you want an unsettling and unnerving psychological thriller about how far one sister will go to save her twin, then you need to read this one! Even though it’s a common topic in thrillers, Robins does this in a unique way and makes it stand out from the rest. It is a slower build but it was still an addictive read.
