Just finished Alter Ego after a sleepless week of not being able to put it down.
I found the start a real eye opener into the life of internet dating and the life of a single parent then the twists and turns of events leading to the final nail biting moments.
Highly recommend this.

We start with Alex kendrew who is a single mother living with her 7 year old son ned trying to wake his mother from a deep sleep as the police are banging on there front door. They have come to arrest Alex for the attempted murder of her b ...more
Thrillers have become a dime a dozen, but Alter Ego stands out from the crowd! I didn't know quite what to expect when I started reading, but the book started with a bang. The story is all about Alexandra Kendrew, single mom to seven-year-old Ned, and a photographer that owns her own business. She's woken up early in the morning by a pounding on the door, and it's the police, there to arrest her on attempted murder charges. T ...more
Alter Ego is a wild ride filled with sexual tension, romance, police proceedings, and a mysterious whodunit. You really can't trust any of the characters, which makes the suspense leading to the reveal of Mal's attacker that much more intense. I couldn't even thoroughly trust our own main character and narrator, Alex.
I found some of the sexual scenes to be a bi ...more
What follows is an exciting, at times sexually explicit, story of internet dating as a single mum who is also a freelance photographer and who is fighting to prove her innocence.
The story goes back a few years and this adds to the suspense as well as enab ...more
Actually, many of the clues were hidden in her relationships that were connected to the real murderer. I couldn't guess who it was, so I had to keep reading!
Note: Sexual assault and verbal abuse was in parts of the story. ...more
K.A. Masson dissects--with unapologetic honesty--the inner turmoil of wanting to be a good mother while also yearning to be true to herself as a woman. She writes with such emotional precision, that you're able to step inside Alex's world and experience it from all its varied contours, and against the backdrop of a vibrant London few people truly get to see. And did I mention it's really sexy? ...more
A great debut from this author and I can’t wait to read the next one.
Thank you Emily Keough Publicity and KA Masson for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Alex learns that her boyfriend Mal has been attacked when she is arrested for his attempted murder. After her arrest, we follow her back through the relationships and events that brought Alex and Mal to this point--and it is a long, winding road, full of abusive boyfriends, harassment, and even (!) faked deaths. This book is not for the faint of ...more
Masson provides an insight into the dating scene (not particularly pleasant), so really happy when the main character meets someone "normal".
It took a while to work out who the culprit was and then it was a race to the end. ...more
Alex Kendrew, a single mother and photographer, is roused from a pill-induced sleep by her young son, Ned. Police lights and sirens pierce her consciousness, and she’s arrested on suspicion of attempted murder of an old flame. As she protests, we are taken back four years in time to see how Alex has arrived at this point.

I live in London with my teenage son and our black cat Slinky, and have worked in design for over 20 years, bringing to life the words of others. I began writing Alter Ego almost by accident. I emailed Faber Academy on a day when someone had just pulled out of their ‘Start Your Novel In A Week’ course. Without that stroke of luck, I may never have got further ...more
