Copycat by Alex Lake

YOUR stalker is everywhere. Your stalker knows everything. But the real problem is that your stalker is you.

Sarah Havenant discovers – when an old friend points it out – that there are two Facebook profiles in her name.

One, she recognizes: it is hers. The other, she has never seen. But everything in it is accurate. Recent photos of her and her friends, her and her husband, her and her kids. Even of her new kitchen. A photo has even been taken inside her house.

She is bemused, angry, and worried. Who was able to do this? Any why?

But this, it soon turns out, is just the beginning. It is only now – almost as though someone has been watching, waiting for her to find the profile – that her problems really start…

This a strange, sinister and disturbing psychological thriller set in Maine, and is a perfect and timely reminder of what can go wrong when so much information is posted on social media in today’s world and the ease with which cyberstalking can take place.
