Description

He looks the same. He looks like a stranger. Super recognisers are born with the ability to remember a face forever, even from a single glance. Kate was one of them. She worked for the police, using her gift to spot criminals and save lives. Then came the accident.

Deprived of her abilities after a devastating car crash, Kate found refuge in a new relationship. She met Rob in hospital, and he nursed her back to health in his beautiful house in Cornwall. But now something feels horribly wrong. Rob looks the same, but Kate feels certain: the man she fell in love with has been replaced by an impostor.

Is this the paranoia of a damaged mind? Or is it Kate's old instinct, screaming one last warning?

This intricate, original and emotionally charged psychological thriller is perfect for fans of J.P. Delaney and Louise Candlish.

Review quote

'You won't be able to turn the pages fast enough' * Heat * 'An unusually pacy twist on the standard domestic thriller ... Propulsive and fun' * Daily Telegraph * 'A clever mash-up of psychological thriller and police procedural with a dash of sci-fi. The imaginatively constructed plot and the carefully written character of Katy prompt some disturbing and unusual questions about who we trust and why in our rapidly changing world of everyday technological progress' * Daily Mail * 'Compulsive and terrifying. A seriously high concept and mind-bending thriller' -- Chris Ewan 'A pacy, powerful psychological thriller that throws up questions on every page' -- Mari Hannah 'Brilliantly original and intriguing ... Kept me hooked, enthralled and guessing to the very end' -- Peter James 'Just when you think you've seen every conceivable variation crime fiction plotlines have to offer, along comes a fresh twist. This one has a lot of familiar tropes: drugs, techno-crime, the world-weary detective with a dysfunctional family and a bright young sidekick. But it has something brand new too ... A denouement that is as unexpected as the rest of this unusual and highly readable novel. I challenge you to predict what is really going on!' * Promoting Crime Blog * 'Easy reading escapism' * Crime Review *
