Someone Like Me

Someone Like Me

‘A TAUT, CLEVER THRILLER THAT LEFT ME UTTERLY BEREFT WHEN I’D FINISHED. IT’S A MASTERPIECE’ Louise Jensen, bestselling author of The Sister

From the author of the million-copy bestseller The Girl With All the Gifts comes a heart-stopping psychological thriller with a twist you won’t see coming and a heroine you can’t trust . . .

THERE ARE TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY.

Liz Kendall wouldn’t hurt a fly. Even when times get tough, she’s devoted to bringing up her kids in a loving home.

But there’s another side to Liz, one that’s dark and malicious. She will do anything to get her way – no matter how extreme.

And when her alter-ego takes control, the consequences are devastating.

Someone Like Me is the intoxicating new thriller from the phenomenal M. R. Carey. A modern take on the Jekyll and Hyde tale, think Gone Girl meets Stephen King – but you won’t have read anything quite like this before . . .

Praise for M. R. Carey:

‘An intense, haunting thriller with heart. You will not want to put this down’ Laini Taylor

‘Carey writes with compassion and fire’ Lauren Beukes

‘Enigmatic and utterly gripping’ Harper’s Bazaar

‘Keeps you on tenterhooks as the action unfolds’ Elle

‘Heartfelt, remorseless and painfully human . . . a jewel’ Joss Whedon

‘Original, thrilling and powerful’ Guardian

‘If you only read one novel this year, make sure it’s this one’ Martina Cole

Jonathan Maberry, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author on FELLSIDE
Bold and unpredictable . . . The first half of the book continually finds ways to wrongfoot the reader. Just when you think you know what kind of story Carey is telling, he shifts gears and forces you to start your deductions from scratch. It's scary and incredibly tense
