Someone Like Me Summary

Someone Like Me by M. R. Carey


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 . . .


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 . . .

'Enigmatic and utterly gripping' Harper's Bazaar

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