Publisher 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 Rob looks the same, but Kate feels certain: the man she fell in love with has been replaced by an impostor.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.

Decent read

This is a good interesting book with good characters and an unusual storyline. The only thing that lets it down is the main character apparent reported high intellect and why they didn’t ever question all the strangisms in their relationship with a person.

2 in 1

Every unmissable story has a strong conceit. And this book has a fascinating one. The research to liaise events is remarkable. What has prevented me from giving 5 stars is that I struggled with the merging of a powerful forensic and investigative side of the story and the fact that any strong conceit follows an atmosphere of mystery. A 2 in 1. I felt split between the attraction of a story where who you think this person is infact might be someone else and for which too many explanations would diminish the fascination and an addictive sequence of events of the who or how has done it kind. But aside from my take, this sort of dichotomy might be an innovative element which could create most stories similar to this one as template and structure. There is also the clever element of a world at the beginning which looks rather mundane. Because the extraordinary is very often set up in ordinary lives. I would be surprised if this story doesn’t make it for the big or small screen.
