Almost two years ago, Faith and Grace Tiddle arrived home from their Saturday morning dance class to find both of their parents face down in pools of blood
Five days later, the twins — only nine years old at the time — were arrested for the double homicide.
And now, twenty months on, the entire country awaits with bated breath as the jury are dismissed to deliberate their verdict on a case that has become a national obsession.
But if Lead Detective Denis Quayle — the man who knows the case better than anybody else — isn’t fully convinced of the twins’ guilt…
Can a twelve-person jury be?
You won’t know what to make of the Tiddle twins

I really enjoyed this unsettling, engaging book which I found very hard to put down.
Told from multiple points of view the author gradually takes the reader through what happened and gives the reader a look into the strange lives of The Tiddle family which was quite eye opening to say the least. Slowly the reader gets to understand what life was like behind closed doors of this religious family and the type of punishments handed out to the twins if they were naughty. I found myself growing increasingly uncomfortable as I read wondering what it would have been like growing up in such an environment.
The twins themselves were quite creepy and some of their actions were actually quite disturbing at times. I could decide what to make of them which was very intriguing for me as I’m normally quite good at guessing. I found myself in the unusual position if not really liking them and I actually hoped at times that they’d be found guilty.
Overall I thought this was a very fast paced and well plotted thriller which kept me guessing until the end as I couldn’t work out if the twins were guilty or not. Parts of the story, including the descriptions of the murders sent a shiver up my spine as they were quite gruesome. This was the first book I’ve read by this author and I’m now very excited to read more from them in the future.
Huge thanks to Emma from Damp Pebbles Tours for inviting me onto the blog tour and for my copy of this book.
