There are three sides to every story: Yours. Mine. And the truth…
Max and Alissa have a fairy tale life—newlywed, madly in love and enviously rich. Then Max is brutally stabbed to death at their home and Alissa, miraculously, escapes with her life. But why was she spared?
The hunt for the killer begins, uncovering a number of leads—was Max’s incredible wealth the motive? Had his shady business practices finally caught up with him? Or was it a stalker with a dangerous obsession?
Devoted friends rally around gentle, sweet Alissa as she is left to mourn the loss of her husband and pick up her life. But not everyone is who they seem…Deep-rooted jealousies, secrets and twisted love lie just beneath the surface, and not all fairy tales have a happy ending.
Duplicity is a suspenseful thriller from the bestselling author of Look Behind You and Where the Memories Lie.

For those of you who’ve missed
This one is for you.
- I really need to break out of Psycho-thriller Land for just one book.
- Duplicity won’t be the breakout book.
- I wonder if Madness from Reading Psycho-thriller Books is listed in the DSM-5 as a recognized mental illness? Sometimes I worry about myself because I love these books so much!
- I assigned Duplicity a 4 early on due to gratuitous violence with graphic descriptions. Yes, believe it or not, I can be a bit squeamish about certain things. But, author Sibel Hodge, you saved yourself from 4 World with your genius twist. You know which one I mean. 😁 You are now in the top 5 candidates for Twist of the Year! This was my first of your books, but it definitely won’t be the last!
- Simon Vance – only 5’s in you! Anything else I might say would be redundant.
- Henrietta Meire – you were brilliant as Samantha/Alyssa. Such subtle, but distinguishing differences in their voices.
- Those of you who are environmental advocates may shout “What the heck?” over the unsatisfying way the author dealt with an environmental issue. I know we can’t always have a resolution to every issue in a book, but I wanted someone to get in big trouble for this one. I guess being dead is troublesome, but there just needed to be more.
- DS Warren Carter is one of the most endearing characters I’ve encountered lately. I really want to find him a girlfriend!
- I’m surprised my earphones didn’t slide out of my ears while listening to the parts about that oily sleaze Acting DI Richard Wilmott. Great character development, Ms. Hodge! I totally hated him. I can’t think of anything that could have happened to evoke sympathy for this character from me.
- Final thought — just for the heck of it, do a search for Duplicity as a book title. There should be an award for Most Uses of a One Word Book Title. I wonder if the title is as appropriate for all those other books as it is for this one? Go download Duplicity right now and get your psycho on! 😱
