Copycat by Alex Lake

The concept of this book brought shivers down my spine. Imagine being told someone else was impersonating you on social media, sharing photos of you that you didn’t take and scarily, photos within your house… when you’re not there.

This is what’s happening to Sarah and she’s terrified.

Then one day the Facebook account vanishes, is she in the clear? Was it just a rather creepy prank?

Sadly it’s not over, it’s far from over… who ever is doing this is reeling Sarah in slowly.

With Sarah going out of her mind, her husband begins to worry and not in a good way, he thinks she’s having a mental breakdown. He doesn’t believe her. Sarah needs to prove that someone is doing this to her before it’s too late.

Gripping from the very start, Lake has produced a page turner that so many will love and race through. He wonderfully builds up the suspicion from the start with an intriguing prologue and snippets of insights from the person ‘playing’ with Sarah.

I have to admit, I had guessed who was behind it, but as we all know, I could have been wrong! There are plenty of twists that will keep you guessing and have your mind playing through all the possible scenarios and outcomes.

Part three took me completely by surprise, I had no idea the book would go in that direction! It just goes to show, you might think you know the standard format of a psychological thriller but there is none! It’s all up to the author and their creative mind.

Tense and compelling, it’ll have you hooked throughout!

Copycat is out now in paperback and eBook versions from Harper Collins, and is also available for only £2 on Amazon UK

Until next time, Chloé x
