Book Summary

This chilling psychological suspense novel—think Strangers on a Train for the modern age—explores the dark side of love and the unbreakable ties that bind twin sisters together.

Felix and Tilda seem like the perfect couple: young and in love, a financier and a beautiful, up-and-coming starlet. But behind their flawless façade, not everything is as it seems.

Callie, Tilda’s unassuming twin, has watched her sister visibly shrink under Felix’s domineering love. She has looked on silently as Tilda stopped working, nearly stopped eating, and turned into a neat freak, with mugs wrapped in Saran Wrap and suspicious syringes hidden in the bathroom trash. She knows about Felix’s uncontrollable rages, and has seen the bruises on the white skin of her sister’s arms.

Worried about the psychological hold that Felix seems to have over Tilda, Callie joins an Internet support group for victims of abuse and their friends. However, things spiral out of control and she starts to doubt her own judgment when one of her new acquaintances is killed by an abusive man. And then suddenly Felix dies—or was he murdered?

A page-turning work of suspense that announces a stunning new voice in fiction, White Bodies will change the way you think about obsession, love, and the violence we inflict on one another—and ourselves.

  1. Chandra

    Tilda and Callie are twins. Tilda being the successful, outgoing one with Callie living in her shadow and seemingly obsessed. When Tilda meets Felix, Callie is brought into their world… but things don’t seem right. Tilda seems to change, losing weight, acting strangely and her normally messy self becomes obsessively neat under Felix’s influence. Callie starts to think something is wrong and joins an online support group as she’s concerned about Tilda’s welfare. Is she imagining what is going on or is something really wrong?

    A story told strictly through Callie’s eyes, we get a full on education on her thoughts and feelings as she struggles with her own inner demons while trying to understand Tilda’s. There is not a single likable character and the reader also begins to wonder what is going on. Psychological thrillers are one of my favorite genres to read. This one delves into the dark side of relationships, not only with a romantic partner, but with a sibling. How far would you go to help the ones you love? This book is quite the interesting read. It’s disturbing with a bit of a Single White Female vibe in the obsession of Callie with Tilda.

    If you love the dark mind that psychological suspense thrillers bring then this is one you should definitely add to your TBR pile. The little nuances are what makes the book special rather than any huge revelation. I found this to be a bit of a slower pace but still a quick read and delving more into the psychological warfare your mind can take you to rather than big actions. Dig in.. get twisted.
