The Thornthwaite Inheritance

Gareth P. Jones

Average rating

4 out 5

A gothic novel featuring twins with a deadly rivalry, mysterious deaths, a fortune to be inherited and any amount of dodgy dealings


Apart from the super cool last name (coincidental), this story kept me hooked all the way through. In fact, I've read it about 30 times! It's a great whodunit about two young orphans, the Thornthwaite twins, who seem to have a desire to kill each other. However, it is not all as it seems. Will they find out who is really plotting to kill them, before the time runs out....? You'll have to read it to find out.

The Thornthwaite Inheritance is a very funny book and seems like a long book but if your into it can be read quite quickly. Small chapters help and writing easy to read.

A tale of envy between siblings. What length would you go to to get that all important inheritance. But the plot does become confusing after a while it's a guessing game of who's dead or who's alive. Also having the underlying who murdered who spectacle throughout the tale. The ending will surprise? you bears and killers bees that all i'll say.

This book is where the twins - Ovid and Lorelli - try to kill each other! I like this brilliant book because it has murder, mystery and menace. The mystery is entwined with murder and menacing characters and that is why I love this.

If you are into skulduggery, murder and mysteries, this is the book for you. It is about some evil twins who are determined to kill each other, and when they make a final truce, something fishy's going on- someone's trying to steal their vast fortune...
