It’s Thursday once again and we’re back with my favorite book meme, #ThrowbackThursday created by Renee of It’s Book Talk (https://itsbooktalk.com/) as her way of sharing some of her favorite oldies but goodies books that were published more than a year ago. Check out her blog to see her TBT recommendations this week 🙂
Lately I’ve been reading paranormal mysteries and horror stories, and I really enjoyed those books. Now it’s time for a little suspense thriller and I chose Ken Follett’s The Third Twin.
The third twin could be your lover, your friend …or your killer. In the course of her work, scientist Jeannie Ferrami stumbles across a baffling mystery: Steve and Dan appear to be identical twins, but were born on different days, to different mothers. A law student and a convicted murderer, they seem a world apart, but as Jeannie begins to fall in love with Steve, she finds her professional – and personal – future threatened.
Steve is accused of a terrible crime, and Jeannie is forced to question just how different the two men really are. Together, she and Steve investigate the mystery and uncover all the secrets. But perhaps some secrets are best left alone.
Jeannie Ferrami’s discovery of a set of cloned twins was baffling.. Imagine being born to different set of parents at different places and different date and time, but bearing the same exact face and body built. A conspiracy that involved disturbing genetic experiments performed by some of the most powerful men in America – a conspiracy that can have you killed.
This is the third Ken Follett book I’ve read and it had me hooked from Chapter 1 until I had to guess who the real antagonist was! A great crime-fiction, mystery-medical drama! I like the way Ken Follett maneuvered the story from a gruesome work of a fear-loving guy, then segueing it to another person of the same taste & appearance but totally different upbringing.
The Third Twin is something that would keep you awake way past midnight, and it made me shudder & think, could this really happen? Could there really be an experiment that could create 8 identical twins born from 8 different moms? of course not! But once you read this book, you might think twice… er… thrice… or 8 times!! After all, everything is possible in Fiction, right? Ken Follett surely had me wondering more than I should with this book.
