Goodreads Summary:

Martin Smith and John Becker: bestselling authors with ordinary names and extraordinary minds. Rivals since childhood, they live in the same town and are famous for their uncanny similarity in physical manner and literary voice. When one of them ends up dead at the other's home, an investigation is launched into their dark past, revealing a series of troubling stories from their childhood, adolescence and careers, throughout which lurks the presence of an authorial entity with roots beyond our time or dimension – a sinister entity with far-reaching designs.

My thoughts:

I'm really not sure what to say about this book.  The genre was totally out of my comfort zone and I didn't "get" a lot of it.  But I do have to say that the premise was amazing.  These 2 boys are born and alike in so many way, yet they detest each other and hardly talk.  They act and talk beyond their years.  Strange things also happen when they are around.
It's not that I didn't like the book.  I think it was wonderfully written.  It just wasn't my type.  I think my husband would have really enjoyed it though.  I give it a strong 3 stars!
