A serial killer is stalking your home town.

He has a type: all his victims look the same.

And they all look like you.

Kate returns from a post break-up holiday with her girlfriends to news of a serial killer in her home town – and his victims all look like her.

It could, of course, be a simple coincidence.

Or maybe not.

She becomes convinced she is being watched, followed even. Is she next? And could her mild-mannered ex-boyfriend really be a deranged murderer?

Or is the truth something far more sinister?


I’m not really a fan of psychological thriller or thriller since I’m more on contemporary reads but when I started reading this book, I was hooked from beginning to end and kept me guessing throughout! I didn’t know that I would love this book so much that it made me want to read other books in the same genre.

Alex has created what is a very believable story and the main characters were very well developed and realistic. Told in alternating perspectives, Kate and her ex Phil, will keep you on your feet and the urge to keep reading on is strong.  The personal connection between Kate and the killer is gripping as you aim to know why the victims look like her. I really enjoyed becoming involved in the action and kept on guessing who the serial killer was.

Killing Kate is a well-done suspense thriller. You will wonder about what’s really going on and ask yourself what would you do under these circumstances. Until to the last page readers will be focused on the outcome. Alex Lake is definitely on my list to look out in the future.

Rating: ★★★★
