R.S. PATEMAN The Second Life of Amy Archer For fans of SJ Watson, this is a taut, chilling debut novel from an exciting new voice in British psychological suspense. In 1999, ten-year-old Amy Archer vanished from her local playground. On the tenth anniversary of the disappearance, her mother, Beth, is still struggling with the horror of not knowing the fate of her only child. But when a stranger knocks on her door and introduces Beth to a little girl who is the uncanny double of her missing daughter, Beth is forced to question everything she has ever believed in. Now she must push her faith and her sanity to the limits if she is to find out the truth about what happened to Amy. • Media campaign on publication. • R.S. Pateman is available for festivals. R.S. Pateman is a copywriter working with some of the UK’s largest ad agencies and companies. This is his first novel.

The most exciting voice in psychological suspense since S.J. Watson
