From the New York Times bestselling author of Before I Go to Sleep, a sensational new psychological thriller about a woman with a secret identity that threatens to destroy her.

How well can you really know another person? How far would you go to find the truth about someone you love?

When Julia learns that her sister has been violently murdered, she must uncover why. But Julia's quest quickly evolves into an alluring exploration of own darkest sensual desires. Becoming involved with a dangerous stranger online, she's losing herself . . . losing control . . . perhaps losing everything. Her search for answers will jeopardize her marriage, her family, and her life.

A tense and unrelenting novel that explores the secret lives people lead--and the dark places in which they can find themselves--Second Life is a masterwork of suspense from the acclaimed S. J. Watson.

Do not waste your time on this trashy novel. The protagonist is unlikeable and makes irritatingly stupid choices. There is no proper resolution at the end of the novel; it's like the author couldn't come up with an ending that he liked, so he just didn't bother to write an ending at all. The author's first book, "Before I Go to Sleep" is much better. Go read that one, instead.

SECOND LIFE has a dark and twisty plot involving addiction, obsession and the dangers of online sex chat rooms. While I still found it to be a page-turner, it was not of the calibre of Watson's debut novel, BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP. I had no empathy or liking for the main character, Julia, & the ending was disappointing.... still an okay thriller.

Lacks the brilliant pacing of Watson's first, BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP, which unfortunately makes the first half a fairly pedestrian thriller. When the plot and the pace pick up, though, it's a worthy read, with the events made even more interesting by the reader's apathy for the main character, Julia. Watson is still very much an author to keep an eye on.
