She used to be good at faces. So good they paid her. If you were living a lie, she would see it in your eyes. She could spot an impostor at a hundred yards. And she only had to pass you once in the street to remember your face forever.

The Other You is a high-tech spin on a chilling Gothic trope, where the modern world of super recognisers and facial recognition software meets one of our oldest fears. To meet your doppelgänger once is said to be bad enough. To meet them twice…

The Other You, the mind-bending new thriller from J.S.Monroe, will be published in the UK on 9 January 2020 by Head of Zeus
