ABOUT THIS BOOK
Is he who you think he is?
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. Kate met him just after her accident, and he nursed her back to health in his high-tech modernist house on the Cornish coast. When she's with him, 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Until, one day, she looks at Rob anew – and knows, with absolute certainty, that he has been replaced by an impostor. Is she right? Have her old recognition skills returned? Or is it all in her damaged mind?
THE OTHER YOU by J.S. Monroe was the first book I picked up this year and it did not disappoint. In fact, it has set an extremely high standard for every other thriller that I will read this year because this story is simply superb and completely unputdownable.
Kate used to be a super recogniser, working with the police and helping to catch criminals with her unique talent for recognising faces. But after a car accident almost killed her, Kate ended her relationship of ten years and quit her job as she had lost her recognition abilities. Meeting Rob, a wealthy tech guy who adores her, was obviously meant to be and now Kate is recuperating from all of the trauma of her past on the Cornish coast, spending her weekdays with her little dog, and her weekends with the love of her life. But when it becomes apparent that her accident wasn't an accident and that somebody may be after her, Kate cannot help but panic a little, and when Rob starts talking about doppelgängers and his fears, it all combines to put Kate on edge. Is she imagining things or is Rob acting very unlike himself and when her abilities begin to return, she cannot help but notice that he doesn't always look like her Rob. Can she trust her thoughts or are all of her doubts coming from injuries from the accident? Or has she been spending time with a stranger who wants to hurt her?
Twisted, creepy, and with plenty of turns along the way to keep you hooked and have you questioning everyone and everything, THE OTHER YOU by J.S. Monroe is everything you could ever want in a psychological thriller and then some. The characters are fresh and likeable and I really enjoyed the super recogniser element of the story because it is just so fascinating. Technology has become embedded in every part of our lives now and we just accept this blindly but after reading THE OTHER YOU by J.S. Monroe I guarantee you that you will look at everything in a slightly different light!
From start to finish THE OTHER YOU by J.S. Monroe captures your imagination and holds you captive to the very end and I cannot wait for more from this amazing author.
J.S. Monroe read English at Cambridge, worked as a foreign correspondent in Delhi, and was Weekend editor of the Daily Telegraph in London before becoming a full-time writer. His psychological thriller Find Me became a bestseller in 2017, and, under the name Jon Stock, he is also the author of five spy thrillers. He lives in Wiltshire, with his wife and children.
