Kate used to be good at recognising people. So good, she worked for the police, identifying criminals in crowds of thousands. But six months ago, a devastating car accident led to a brain injury. Now the woman who never forgot a face can barely recognise herself in the mirror. At least she has her boyfriend Rob, who has nursed her back to health in his high-tech modernist house on the Cornish coast. When she’s with him, the nightmares of the accident fade, and she feels safe and loved. Until, one day, she looks at Rob anew – and knows, with absolute certainty, that he has been replaced by an impostor. Have her old recognition skills returned?
The Other You is a gripping thriller, and here the author, JS Monroe writes about these gifted ‘super recognisers’ in a piece for the UKs Daily Express.
