Doppleganger is the second Jack Lockwood novel, and, like the first, is a fast paced action thriller.

This time Jack seems to have fallen in love, but if he expects it all to run smoothly then he is going to be disappointed.

A serial killer is on the loose, and at the same time a crime Tzar is after his head; maybe he shouldn't have written that book after all.

The action flips from Canterbury to the depths of Wales as he struggles to find the answers to his questions, but someone is always one step ahead of him. Who?

Trying to untangle the various threads leads him down a road he doesn't want to take, a suspicion, a feeling, and before he knows it he is embroiled in something from his worst nightmare. Can he resolve it in time to save his life? Has he kept things too close for his own comfort and safety?

The plot is well thought out and the story cracks along at a fast pace, the characters are well drawn and show their frailties as well as their strengths. The Chandler style narrative is guaranteed to keep you reading, and from the first page `til the last it will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Congratulations to Geoffrey West for producing another first rate page turner, one that will keep you guessing right up until the end.

Doppelganger (Jack Lockwood mysteries) was a great follow up to the original story 'Rock'n'Roll Suicide' this book kept up the captivating writing of a talented author. Geoffrey West keeps us enthralled with an all action read from the first page to the last, the chase to capture the so called `Bible Killer' takes us on a trip across the breadth of the country to a hideaway in Wales back to the city of Canterbury with a trail of murder and intrigue. Altogether a very accomplished book and I am waiting patiently for the next one in the series.

The title of this review says it all, really....

I bought this because I am interested in anything with the words 'serial killer' in the title or blurb!

I don't read many books of the crime thriller fiction genre as I am not very interested in all the 'Yes, but it could have meant...' stuff when it comes to solving the crime, so I have little with which to measure this book - I'm a crime fiction reading novice! However, I DO love watching this sort of thing on television, and I must say I was very pleased to find that, in this novel, none of the results that arose throughout the second half were predictable, none at all. I love it when I can't guess 'whodunnit', or, indeed, even the outcome of the romantic interest! This book had several layers to it, several mysteries, which made it more interesting.

The story flowed well, was intelligently and professionally written and had no boring bits or the superfluous detail found in some 'indie' books; everything was relevant to the plot, and the characterisation was good, too. Who will it appeal to? I'd say those of you who like to watch the sort of traditional crime detective type stuff on British television - Morse, Lewis, Blue Murder, that sort of thing. Jack Lockwood is not the macho, rugged hero I'd expected, either; he's actually quite sensitive and 'new man' for a crime solving writer hero character, so perhaps lovers of Jonathan Creek will like it, too!

I have now read both of the Jack Lockwood mysteries; I really enjoyed Rock’n’Roll Suicide but Doppelganger is even better. The plot is full of intrigue from start to finish and moves along at such a brisk pace. Jack Lockwood is a man of intelligence, a criminal profiler and an author, but he is not a dynamic hero; rather more an ordinary everyman who sometimes stumbles into dangerous situations and survives more through luck than judgement. This is what endears him to me and makes the story so real. The plot has some great twists from the start when Jack knocks down a woman in his car only to discover she was fleeing the clutches of a serial killer known as the Bible Killer. From that point Jack seems to antagonise everyone he meets, specifically the police and a local gangster on whom he is determined to publish an unauthorised biography. Through it all Jack falls in love but there is something mysterious about his girlfriend - could she be a notorious child killer now holding a new identity? Or could she hold the key to the identity of the Bible Killer?

Very well written and will keep you guessing and gripped to the end.

Having read, and thoroughly enjoyed, Geoffrey West's previous novel, 'Rock 'n' Roll Suicide, I was keen to see whether 'Doppelganger' could be as good - and it really is!

This is a complex crime thriller with several different sub-plots. The principal character, Jack Lockwood - who I felt I already knew from the previous book - once again falls in love too easily and, too late, discovers that his latest love may have a secret and sinister past. Meanwhile in the present day, a vicious gangster is out to silence Jack once and for all before he can reveal dark secrets in his latest true crime book. Finally, there is a deranged serial killer on the loose whose reign of terror, it turns out, intertwines inextricably with these other parts of Jack's life.

The author skilfully weaves these sub-plots together in a gripping and unpredictable tale which just keeps you guessing from beginning to end.

A cracking follow up to 'Rock 'n' Roll Suicide!
