內容簡介

雙胞胎妹妹的死,成就了她的夢想。她終於可以甩掉卡債,代替妹妹過著完美的人生。但是她沒有想到的是,妹妹隱藏的許多謊言,使她必須不斷地使壞才能活下去!英國新銳小說家Chloé Esposito三部曲小說Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know首部曲,將使你一拿起這本小說,便捨不得放下。

Alvie Knightly的人生毫無目標、沒有計畫、幾乎鎮日爛醉如泥。她的存在與雙胞胎妹妹Beth的完美生活比起來,簡直就是徹底的失敗。Alvie生活在社群媒體裡,把中東燒烤kebabs當早餐吃,當隨身包包裡的性玩具開始發出嗡嗡聲時,總是被安檢攔下;反觀妹妹Beth,她嫁給了一個性感富有的義大利人,溺愛她漂亮的寶貝兒子,而且一直是母親的最愛。兩人除了長得一模一樣之外,昔日的共同點已然遠去。
 
當Beth寄給Alvie一張頭等艙的機票邀她到義大利一遊時,Alvie根本不想去。但是當她被迫捲鋪蓋離開她痛恨的工作,樓友將她踢出大街上時,渡假勝地陶爾米納的豪華別墅瞬間變得動聽起來。Beth提出兩人互換身分幾個小時,以便在丈夫不知情的狀態下外出。Alvie逮住了過過妹妹生活的機會(雖然只是暫時的),但是當夜晚以Beth死在泳池做終結時,Alvie了解到,這是改變她人生的機會了。

但是要過Beth的人生豈是那麼容易的事情?Beth到底背著丈夫做了什麼事?究竟是為什麼她邀請Alvie來義大利?當Alvie挖得越深,她發現了妹妹與黑手黨的關聯,她的祕密情人們,迷人的職業殺手,還有一個貪污的神父,所有人開始懷疑她偽裝的身分。如果她想一直過著妹妹的生活,她必須得拿出使壞的看家本領才行!


In this compulsively readable debut, set between London and Sicily over one blood-drenched week in the dead of summer, an identical twin reveals the crazy lies and twists she’ll go through to not only steal her sister’s perfect life, but to keep on living it.

Alvie Knightly is a trainwreck: aimless, haphazard, and pretty much constantly drunk. Alvie’s existence is made even more futile in contrast to that of her identical and perfect twin sister, Beth. Alvie lives on social media, eats kebabs for breakfast, and gets stopped at security when the sex toy in her carry-on starts buzzing. Beth is married to a hot, rich Italian, dotes on her beautiful baby boy, and has always been their mother’s favorite. The twins’ days of having anything in common besides their looks are long gone.

When Beth sends Alvie a first-class plane ticket to visit her in Italy, Alvie is reluctant to go. But when she gets fired from the job she hates and her flatmates kick her out on the streets, a luxury villa in glitzy Taormina suddenly sounds more appealing. Beth asks Alvie to swap places with her for just a few hours so she can go out unnoticed by her husband. Alvie jumps at the chance to take over her sister’s life–if only temporarily. But when the night ends with Beth dead at the bottom of the pool, Alvie realizes that this is her chance to change her life.

Alvie quickly discovers that living Beth’s life is harder than she thought. What was her sister hiding from her husband? And why did Beth invite her to Italy at all? As Alvie digs deeper, she uncovers Mafia connections, secret lovers, attractive hitmen, and one extremely corrupt priest, all of whom are starting to catch on to her charade. Now Alvie has to rely on all the skills that made her unemployable–a turned-to-11 sex drive, a love of guns, lying to her mother–if she wants to keep her million-dollar prize. She is uncensored, unhinged, and unforgettable.
