Fifteen years ago, on a deserted California beach, Dave Quinn swam out into the winter ocean to save two drowning girls - identical twin sisters. He was only able to save one.
Now, years later, he meets Anne, a struggling artist from Canada. He has no idea she is the child he saved so long ago. And he has no idea that Elinor, the long-dead sister he couldn't save, has come with her...
"… a singular American fabulist." -- William Gibson
"This story of good and evil siblings examines how we all learn to live with who we are, and does so through supple writing and a tense and carefully executed plot... Blaylock combines the supernatural with a deep understanding of contemporary California and human nature, producing a book with appeal for both fantasy fans and readers of realistic fiction" -- Publishers Weekly
"Vivid descriptions and deft characterisations... WINTER TIDES exposes the underbelly of human nature" -- Library Journal
"One creepy, creepy book... Blaylock will scare you to death with a minimum of splatter and maximum of tension, Hitchcock-style. I read WINTER TIDES in one long sitting and found my heart wouldn't stop racing." -- Woodland Hills (CA) Daily News
