Blog tour: First Born

Welcome to the blog tour for First Born by Will Dean

Intense. Addictive. Surprising.

What a thriller! I can promise you that, from the moment you pick up this book, you will think of little else. And afterwards too! Such clever plot twists, and what an amazing backdrop New York is. In fact, the streets of the Big Apple are more of a character than a mere backdrop. And then there are, of course, Molly and Katie. The book almost asks you to pick a side… Which twin will you back up? The positive half? Or the darkest half? But… which one is which?

More about the book…

Molly lives a quiet, contained life in London. Naturally risk averse, she gains comfort from security and structure. Every day the same.

Her identical twin Katie is her exact opposite: gregarious and spontaneous. They used to be inseparable, until Katie moved to New York a year ago. Molly still speaks to her daily without fail.

But when Molly learns that Katie has died suddenly in New York, she is thrown into unfamiliar territory. Katie is part of her DNA. As terrifying as it is, she must go there and find out what happened. As she tracks her twin’s last movements, cracks begin to emerge. Nothing is what it seems. And a web of deceit is closing around her.
