Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling 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 her 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.

Predictable and maddening

I'm so disappointed in this book. I enjoyed Before I Go to Sleep, but this book is sort of the same except that the main character, instead of making stupid decisions because she's brain-damaged, makes stupid decisions because she's stupid. She doesn't do a single thing right no matter how many chances she gets, and she seems not understand very basic things about cell phones and social media even though she's only in her 30's. It really surprised me. I read an interview with Val McDermid in which she said that SJ Watson was a fresh new voice, but nothing about this book was fresh or new.
If you're new to crime fiction, you might enjoy this book because you won't have heard it all before. But if you've been reading books like this for a while now, don't bother. You'll feel like an idiot if you stick around waiting for the plot to twist.

Terrible :(

Found the main character infuriating. Her bad decision after bad decision were so frustrating to listen to. Would not recommend.
