Nowhere Girl by Susan Strecker

Savannah and Cady are twin sisters and though totally different in personality, the bonds that bind them seem almost para-normal. Cady feels whatever Savannah is undergoing and when one day Savannah goes missing, just late by fifteen minutes Cady knows that something is radically wrong and is able to direct the cops with a perception that was suspicious to what, where and how Savannah died.

Years later, Cady still feels the absence as well as the presence of her sister pushing her to find out what went wrong and to Cady's eyes find her killer. What unfolds is a complex story of good detective skills at work along with Cady's feelings to unravel what happened so many years ago.

Though the case is closed, many years later when the case is reopened Cady has to live through her nightmare years again to work closely with the cop who handled the case so many years ago to find out exactly what happened. And the results will surprise all.

Tantalizingly told, full of suspense, the characterization was very well done. The contrast of the twin sisters was masterful, while at the same time highlighting the bonds that bound them, which seemed almost not understandable.

The book was sent to me by Netgalley, for an unbiased review courtesy of St. Martin's Press.
