About the Book:
How well do you know your husband? Since Alice’s fiancé walked out on her, she never thought she’d meet ‘The One’. But all that changes when she meets Dominic. Handsome, charming and kind, Alice can’t believe her luck when he proposes a few months later and moves into her West London home. Three years on, Alice’s catering business is thriving and she is married to a man she adores. So when she sees that little blue line, it should be the happiest moment of her life: they’re going to have a baby. But then the police knock on her door and Alice’s whole world is turned upside down… Dominic is dead. Distraught, Alice goes to identify the body. There’s no doubt that it’s her husband. Yet when his estranged brother comes to view the coffin, he insists the man lying there is not Dominic. Alice refuses to believe it at first, but when confronted with irrefutable proof, she finally has to face the truth: The man she married is not the person he said he was. And if he lied about that, what else was he hiding from her?

This thriller takes the concept of Identity Theft to an utterly frightening level and you get a thrilling novel that is really hard to put down. I read this book in one day, in under 7 hours. The storyline and plot are original and so immensely intriguing, I kept wanting to know what was next.

A mystery with twisted phycological turns, Alison James, has given us a blazing fast storyline full of intrigue, battles of minds and bodies, and souls. I devoured Ms. James' words from cover to cover. Alice and Dominic were both interesting characters...the good and the bad...the ying and the yang.

My only negative thought, hence the 3.75 stars, is the ending was a bit out there, the first 3/4 of the book was a five star read but the last 25% was just an ok 2 or 3. This is my first read of Alison James and I look forward to reading many more of her works in the future.

Thank you NetGalley, Alison James and Bookouture for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
