Publisher's 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 two 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 pause-resisting 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.

Who is Being Abused?

Twin sisters with complicated lives. One is really nosy, going through the other's trash. A young husband ends up dead: heart defect or murder. A fast read with multiple twists.

What the crap?

There’s a few hours of my life I will not get back. Everyone in this book is insane. And not in a good way

Just ok.

The idea of the book was great and quite original. However, I did not find the main character likable. I thought she was strange. I did not enjoy the ending of this book, but who ever agrees with an ending of a book? Performance was great - narrator was great with different accents of the characters. But as a whole, this book was just okay for me.

Takes awhile to draw you in.

Would you consider the audio edition of White Bodies to be better than the print version?

n/a

What was one of the most memorable moments of White Bodies?

One of the most memorable moments was the beginning when Felix held Tilda underwater.

What does Camilla Arfwedson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She does a great job at all the different voices.

Lived it!!

Maybe not so much “thriller” but absolutely psychological intensity.
I loved the flow of the story, and will definitely look for more of Jane Robbins work.
Worth the credit and worth the time.

Poor recommendation by audible editor

This book was recommended by one of the editors in one of the emails. It started out okay...then just got worse. I couldn’t even finish it.
