Mat Osman is the bassist and founding member of the iconic British Rock band Suede. The Ruins is Osman’s debut novel and is a dark and dreamlike story of identity, ambition and music. It charts the tale of twin brothers – Adam and Brandon – who, having not spoken for decades, find themselves dragged back in to each others lives after Brandon is killed. Shy, stuttering Adam finds himself caught up in his murdered brother’s world of deception, violence and forgery.

With echoes of PerformanceThe Talented Mr Ripley and Mulholland DriveThe Ruins delves into the dark heart of fame: magic, music and murder.
