Beschreibung

The beloved Eddings writing team, coauthors of the bestselling Belgariad and Malloreon fantasy series, now turn their creative storytelling skills to one of real lifes most mysterious occurrences: the shared biology of twins and the uncanny bonds that arise from it. Part murder mystery, ghost story, and psychological thriller, Reginas Song masterfully fuses together elements that elicit our deepest, darkest fears. . . .Twins Regina and Renata are so identical that even their mother cant tell them apart. Eerily attuned to one another, they often speak together in a secret language no one else can understand. Then tragedy strikes when one of the twins is viciously murdered. The remaining twin is so traumatized, she reverts to the cryptic language she once shared with her sister. Whats more, since identical twins share identical DNA, there is no way to tell which girl was the victim. The parents believe the surviving twin is Renata and have no choice but to commit her to an institution. There she lives, incomprehensible to the rest of the world. Until the day Mark, a family friend, comes to visit and the young girl utters her first intelligible word.From that day forward Mark spends hours with Renata at the hospital. When she finally begins to communicate again in English, she reveals virtually no memory of the past. Mark remains a strong link between Renata and her former lifea fact that drives him to a resolute sense of responsibility for the fragile girl. Brilliant and beautiful, Renata gradually reacclimates herself to the outside world. But she is far from recovered. Her nightmares grow steadily more frightful, followed by wild fits of hysteria and dark mood swings. Meanwhile, as Seattle is plagued by a grisly serial killer, Mark has a terrifying realization: the murders coincide with Renatas strange outbursts. Could she be the killer? Determined to dispel his suspicion, he stakes out Renatas home. But his nocturnal vigils do nothing to ease his fears. For the unholy sight he witnesses on one of Seattles most bone-chilling winter nights will haunt his soul for the rest of his life. . . .From the Hardcover edition.

Klappentext

"A story of murder and revenge . . . Outstandingly well paced and tightly plotted, the novel also stands out in its handling of various psychological themes."-Booklist

Eerily attuned to one another, twins Regina and Renata are so identical that even their mother can't tell them apart. Then tragedy strikes: a vicious attack leaves one twin dead and the other so traumatized that she turns totally inward, incapable of telling anyone what happened or even who she is. She remains lost to the world, until the day Mark, a family friend, comes to visit-and the young woman utters her first intelligible word.

As she recovers, still with no memory of the past, her nightmares grow steadily more frightful, followed by wild fits of hysteria and dark mood swings. Her strange outbursts seem to coincide with the grisly serial murders that have begun plaguing Seattle. Could she be the killer? Determined to dispel his suspicion, Mark stakes out her home. The unholy sight he witnesses one night will haunt his soul for the rest of his life. . . .
