The Devil's Backbone

(2006)
A novel by

 
 
Though they are sisters, Kit and Jenny could not be more different. Jenny is the dutiful daughter, following in her father's footsteps to become a Texas cop. A detective in the Austin Police Department, she is surprised when she sees a crime report with her sister's name on it.

Rebellious Kit is always trying to escape the fallout of her mother's death and the gravitational pull of her father's expectations. Working as a stripper, she is living in a nighttime world of pseudonyms and lies. And she's begun to notice some new characters hanging around the club.

Suddenly, one sister's murder leads to the other's investigation of it, and brings her into a world more deadly than she can imagine. As the truth unfolds, one sister begins to question everything—even her own sanity—and the role she might have played in this lethal dance.
