ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Alison Morton writes award-winning thrillers featuring tough but compassionate heroines. Her nine-book Roma Nova series is set in an imaginary European country where a remnant of the ancient Roman Empire has survived into the 21st century and is ruled by women who face conspiracy, revolution and heartache but with a sharp line in dialogue.
She blends her deep love of France with six years’ military service and a life of reading crime, historical and thriller fiction. On the way, she collected a BA in modern languages and an MA in history.
Alison now lives in Poitou in France, the home of the heroine of her latest two contemporary thrillers, Double Identity and Double Pursuit. Oh, and she’s writing the next Roma Nova story.
Double Identity is a great start to the Mélisende Thrillers series. Alison Morton has written a great suspense filled mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat from the start. There were a few twists and turns I did not see coming. This is one of those books that I could never predict as to what was going to happen next. It felt like I was taking a ride on a thrilling roller coaster. I loved every single page.
I am giving Double Identity a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy reading action packed thrillers. I can not wait to find out what happens next from the Mélisende Thrillers series, Double Pursuit.
I received a digital copy of Double Identity from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
