One of the author's ten favorite thrillers about siblings, as shared at the Guardian:
What the Dead Know by Laura Lippman

Before the recent wave of popular “are they or aren’t they unreliable?” narrators, the brilliantly talented Lippman told the story of a woman who claims to be Heather Bethany, one of two adolescent sisters last seen at a shopping mall in 1975. Lippman has said that this was inspired by the real-life disappearance of two sisters in suburban Washington DC when the author herself was a teenager. Her fictional rendering of these girls is careful and beautiful.
