*My thanks to the author for my review copy*
About the book:
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 psychological thriller from Sibel Hodge which focuses on Max and Alissa and life in the wake of Max’s murder. The word duplicity means to deceive or to be two-faced and this book really lives up to it’s title.
I read Duplicity fairly quickly. It’s a fast paced read, with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader turning those pages until the very end. There is some interesting characterisation and dual storylines in the book which add to the mystery and intrigue too.
I’ve been reading an awful lot of psychological thrillers this year, so I like to think I have a fair idea of the plots and themes that authors can use for their books. A week before I read Duplicity, I read a book with very similar themes so this book didn’t hold any surprises for me. I guess it was bound to happen, and it was just an absolute fluke that I read these two books so close together.
In saying that, Duplicity is a gripping psychological thriller. Even though it wasn’t a shocker to me personally, I completely agree with the raving early reviews I am seeing on social media for Sibel’s book. These sorts of books are an escape, and Duplicity is no different. Lose yourself within the pages of this book and see for yourself.
Definitely a recommended read for psychological thriller fans!
