Kate used to be good at recognising people. So good, she worked for the police, identifying criminals in crowds of thousands. But six months ago, a devastating car accident led to a brain injury. Now the woman who never forgot a face can barely recognise herself in the mirror.
At least she has Rob. Young, rich, handsome and successful, Rob runs a tech company on the idyllic Cornish coast. Kate met him just after her accident, and he nursed her back to health. When she’s with him, in his luxury modernist house, the nightmares of the accident fade, and she feels safe and loved.
Until, one day, she looks at Rob anew. And knows, with absolute certainty, that the man before her has been replaced by an impostor.
Is Rob who he says he is? Or is it all in Kate’s damaged mind?
Kate was a super recogniser until a car accident robbed her of this ability.
She had recently broken up with boyfriend Jake, and meets Rob while recovering in hospital. Rob was caring, attentive and looks after her while she slowly starts to recover.
But, then one day, Kate looks at Rob and feels it’s not him, that someone has taken his place…..his doppelgänger. Rob had previously told her of his fear a doppelgänger would steal his soul if he met him a second time.
Is this all in her mind? Has the accident caused more damage than she thought? Or is something more sinister going on?
Wow, what a nail biter of a thriller…..part police procedural and part psychological thriller. I can’t say much about the plot for fear of spoiling it, but I found this to be so gripping and I really couldn’t put it down, a couple of late nights resulted as I just had to know…
With each chapter bring more revelations and twists, it kept me on tenterhooks from start to finish. Great characters, believable and twisty plot make this a compelling read. I can thoroughly recommend it.
