Twisted Wing was one of my many charity shop buy bargains. It’s a murder mystery story set at Cambridge University. However, the twist at the end makes it a little different to the norm.
Ruth Newman is a psychologist and uses this to great effect as a plot tool. I think I can safely say she uses her knowledge of multiple personality disorder to create a very twisted love story. The main character, Olivia, is as scared and frighted as the rest of the students. However, she has no idea about her significance to the plot. Her boyfriend gets arrested after graduation and she’s shocked and horrified.
This is a fantastic murder mystery novel which uses novel plot concepts and has some great characters. Well worth a read.
