ENTWINED Lynda La Plante (Morrow, $22) Reading this novel about telepathic twins separated in a concentration camp is like devouring a jumbo bag of greasy potato chips-you’ll wish you’d stopped on the third fistful. Written by the author of TV’s Prime Suspect, this tale of two sisters-one of whom is inclined to suicide, the other to murder-has far too much hysteria stretched out over far too many pages. But if you can grit your teeth through sentences like, ”She wanted to cry, but she had wept too many times, for too many years,” you’re in for a delicious binge. B- -Rebecca Ascher-Walsh
