'Pounding on the door. My seven-year-old son shaking me awake. My head fuzzy with sleeping pills. The hallway flashing with blue light. This morning my life will change forever.
Alex Kendrew is juggling single parenthood, work and dating; with a wild, impetuous streak that’s hard to keep in check, she struggles to find a balance and feels perpetually guilty for the choices she makes.
In K.A. Masson’s domestic noir thriller, Alex begins a passionate affair when an old flame gets in touch. But one morning, the police arrest her for his attempted murder. Someone is framing her; can she prove her innocence as the evidence mounts against her?'
Welcome to Day 2 of the Blogtour for K A Mason's Alter Ego.
This book doesn't wait around. Right from the off the protagonist, Alex, is arrested for the attempted murder of the man she was seeing and locked in a police cell. From there we step back 4 years and follow Alex's at times complicated and always busy life juggling Internet dating, work and bringing up a child as a single parent. Thankfully Alex is an interesting character and certainly not whiter than white so it makes for an entertaining read while trying to work out who is trying to frame her (or is she guilty?). I flip-flopped enough times on this that I decided to stop trying to guess and enjoy the journey.
A fast paced read and a story just made for the 9pm Sunday night slot on BBC1.
