The Other You By J. S. Monroe

The Other You By J. S. Monroe


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 Rob looks the same, but Kate feels certain: the man she fell in love with has been replaced by an impostor.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

My Thoughts:

A very interesting and unique storyline involving super recognisers who are much better at identifying a face than computers. It is quite a sinister story that started off for me a little slow but gradually got better, I couldn’t work out if Kate was still suffering from a brain injury or if something else was going on so that kept me wondering. I felt as though the word super recogniser was used a bit too much and the ending was not what I was expecting either.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
