DEAD LETTERS by Caite Dolan-Leach
The premise of Caite Dolan-Leach’s debut thriller novel Dead Letters is about two estranged identical twin sisters Ava and Zelda Antipova, one of whom was murdered and the other, left with unresolved anger and feelings of guilt is left to plan her sister’s funeral and look after their demented mother. Once back home at the family vineyard in upstate New York, Ava starts receiving several eerie and obscure emails from Zelda from beyond the grave. Ava starts to suspect that her sister may not be dead and is playing mind games with her. She must now try and unravel the enigma that is Zelda’s secret life and even more mysterious disappearance. Can she beat Zelda at her own game?
I really enjoyed learning about the two sisters’ dysfunctional family, fractured relationship with one another, and quirky nuances as the mystery surrounding Zelda’s death/disappearance unfolded little by little. It was an enjoyable and quick read. I rate this novel 4 out of 5 stars.
