The Gemini Syndrome

By Deryn Lake

Elizabeth Lacey was a beautiful and successful photographer, but ever since she had taken her first pictures at the age of ten she had been involved in a mystery. 

Locked away in a drawer in her darkroom are a series of strange photographs on which two ghostly boys appear. The photographs had been taken at different stages throughout her career, and the boys were always shadowy, but they were growing bigger and older. Elizabeth has never told anyone about the photographs, but when he lover Nigel accidentally discovers them, he urges her to put them on display. Of course, she refuses. Without knowing quite why, Elizabeth insists on keeping them secret. She must keep Nigel a secret too – he’s married to another woman. Although he has sworn his love for Elizabeth, he shows no signs of leaving Felicity. Spending an idyllic weekend with him, she’s able to forget her relationship woes – until the pictures are developed. There, on one of the photographs, are the two little boys watching Nigel with a faintly menacing air. Who are they? And what do they want with her?

Deryn Lake started to write stories at the age of five, then graduated to novels but destroyed all her early work because, she says, it was hopeless. A chance meeting with one of the Getty family took her to Sutton Place and her first serious novel was born. Deryn was married to a journalist and writer, the late L. F. Lampitt, has two grown-up children, four beautiful and talented grandchildren, and one rather large cat. Deryn has lived near the famous battlefield of 1066 for the past 16 years where she enjoys her life as a woman about town. She is also the author of Fortune’s Soldier, Sutton Place, To Sleep No More, The King’s Women and Pour The Dark Wine.
