From debut author Elle Grawl comes a psychological thriller about an insomniac artist who discovers a shocking truth about a recent spate of murders in her city: the victims all look just like her.
Years after escaping her abusive childhood, Harper Mallen has only ever known sleepless nights―or terrifying nightmares. She’s struggling to survive as an artist in a trendy Chicago neighborhood, getting by on freelance gigs, when she’s suddenly confronted with the worst fears from her past.
A young woman is killed outside Harper’s apartment―a woman who chillingly resembles her. As Harper searches for information about the victim, she discovers unsettling links to two other murders. Upon discovering another doppelgänger, Harper realizes her life is not the only one hanging in the balance.
As her obsession and paranoia deepen, everyone is a suspect: the handsome stranger in the café, customers at the painting studio, even the ghosts from her past. The closer she comes to unraveling the truth behind the murders, the more Harper realizes there is no one she can trust―not even herself.
From the Publisher
“One of Those Faces delivers an unreliable narrator whose paranoia is shaped by past trauma, a killer targeting women who look like her, and plenty of twists that tighten as the atmosphere closes in. This taut, chilling, page-turning psychological thriller is sure to put debut author Elle Grawl on the map.” ―Loreth Anne White, Washington Post, Amazon Charts, and Bild bestselling author of The Patient’s Secret
“Taut with suspense, One of Those Faces is a slow burn thriller that will make you deadbolt your door during the day. Grawl’s debut hypnotized me from start to finish.” ―Elle Marr, Amazon Charts bestselling author of Strangers We Know
“Make sure to clear your schedules, because One of Those Faces is such a wild and compelling ride you’re not going to be able to look away until the very last sentence. Grawl, with beautifully cinematic style, knocks you off balance until you feel like you’re slowly drowning in nightmares right alongside Harper, not knowing which way is up or what is true. Every time you catch your breath, another revelation pulls you under. This binge-worthy, trippy thriller should be at the top of everyone’s must-read list!” ―Brianna Labuskes, bestselling author of What Can’t Be Seen

The story, as narrated by the main character, Harper Mallen, had enough twists and turns to certainly keep me guessing until the very end. I even found myself telling her out loud, "don't go in there, don't do that, Harper!" Lol.
The premise, too, was an interesting take on the idea of having one or more doppelgängers out there. Or perhaps being someone else's as well. Having, you know, one of those faces that seemed all too familiar to other people.
My only real complaint was the ending didn't quite feel like an ending. With what has taken place there was an opening for more. So less concrete than I would have liked but a great story overall.
Will definitely read more from this author in the future.
