Jake Woodhouse has worked as a musician, wine maker and entrepreneur. He now lives in London with his wife and their young gundog.
This gripping detective novel will thrill fans of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and bears comparison to Fatherland ... Utterly unputdownable * Sun * A strong sense of place is matched by a capacity for storytelling that keeps the plot accelerating * Daily Mail * Utterly enthralling . . . looks set to be one of the key sequences in modern crime fiction -- Barry Forshaw * Crimetime * Twisting, stylish and breathlessly paced. I struggled to put it down for a second -- Chris Whitaker, CWA Dagger-winning author of Tall Oaks This might be Jake Woodhouse's best yet. His Jaap Rykel series good from strength to strength and The Copycat embodies everything that's good about the Rykel books. Yes, it's a gripping page-turner but it also has a lot to say on important social messages, brilliantly managing to do so without slowing the pace for a second. Highly recommended. -- Craig Robertson Terrifying and twisty, Jake Woodhouse's gripping, effortlessly vivid prose makes this intelligent, brilliantly plotted thriller one you will not be able to put down -- Sam Blake, Irish Times No.1 Bestselling Author of Little Bones Unflinching but also surprisingly funny, you keep turning the pages to find out what is the bigger threat to Rykel: the murderer or his own inner demons -- Anja de Jager
