Review: Second Life by S.J. Watson

Standard

S.J. Watson’s follow-up to Before I Go To Sleep had some big shoes to fill and didn’t disappoint. But beware of comparing this to his first novel, this book stands alone and you should read it without bias.

Julia’s sister, Kate, has been murdered and the Parisian police, in Julia’s opinion, aren’t doing enough to find Kate’s killer. Julia decides to join the online community where Kate was meeting and hooking up with random men. Convinced that she will find the killer, married Julia delves deep into the world of cyber dating and cybersex. 

Julia’s character is perfectly flawed in so many ways and the cast of supporting characters in this book are all potential suspects. Watson has created an all too plausible world with this book such that it could be the headline of London’s The Daily Mail.
