Editorial Reviews

Review

"[The Living Image] is an exciting and detailed thriller story which simply oozes with suspense and greedy characters! I especially like how P. M. Richter eneded the story. If you like the movies "The Fugitive", "The Pelican Brief", or "The Client" then this story is for you!" -- Huntress Book Reviews

"THE LIVING IMAGE takes us on a dangerous and unforgettable journey into the frightening reality of the unexpected--a novel of conspiracy, betrayal, survival, and deep abiding love. A page turner that draws the mettle of the story to a satisfying conclusion, and proves that when you think you have reached your darkest hour, the brightest of your dreams can come true........" -- Betty Wiechert, former reviewer for Affaire de Coeur magazine

"WOW!! This one I could not put down!! To go to a tanning salon for a little color and come home with a clone! A living image of yourself, only better. How disconcerting! The clone is to be a better offshoot of the human race. The intrigues of three major intelligence agencies to reach that prize are fun to watch as the two "foxes" continually outfox the hounds. Since life is the prize if the girls win, there is much at stake. A definate must read." -- Laurie L. Gruber, BookNook Reviews

From the Author

The story,"A Double Came Along," began when I wondered how a person would feel when confronted with their own doppelganger.  Since I'm an identical twin, I thought it would be a fun concept for a novel. I hope readers will find enjoyment and escape into this thriller.
   
My other novels are:
The Necromancer
The Living Image 
Deadly Memories 
Deadly Fun
Trifecta  - a box set of three complete novels with over 1000 pages. 
Romance Box Set - three complete romantic suspense thrillers.
 
My children's books:  
Little Ghostie 
Christmas with Uncle Nick and the Sugarplum Fairies.

Format: Kindle Edition
This author skilfully blends science with plausible fiction to create an exciting and credible story. Waking up in a tanning saloon beside a living, breathing mirror image of herself, our heroine becomes involved in a dangerous fight. With the man who created her clone in hospital from a heart attack, only Sabrina can protect her newly formed twin from government agencies, foreign spies and greedy lawyers. All of them will stop at nothing, including murder, to catch and use this beautiful woman with a computer for a brain. In the wrong hands, she could be worth millions and they will kill to get her. As the relationship between Sabrina and her twin develop, they learn from each other and confuse all who meet them. Humour and suspense, love and passion, make this a story to remember. Having followed the two women as they fight the baddies and plot their escape, it would be great to read more about their subsequent lives. Pam Richter brings her characters alive, they are likeable and fun, even in adversity.

Take a sexy model, duplicate. Add in a nice old genius and two bumbling sons who somehow became lawyers. Stir in some spies and Japanese bad guys. You get amazing fun.

Pamela Richter has created an exciting read that jumps from the starting gate. She has an incredible grasp of emotions, humor, and action.

This is an incredibly fun read, that I was in the midst of reading when my Kindle died. I had to wait a few days to finish. It was well worth the wait.

"The Living Image," at its core, is a generic - but well executed - thriller. Multiple organizations want Eve, and the protagonist's goal is to avoid any of them getting her. Unofficial ties between the organizations add complexity and dimension to the basic plot.

What makes the story unique is the development of the relationship between Sabrina and Eve along with the way Eve changes, becoming "more human," as the story progresses. Imagine trying to understand why someone reacts to the world the way they do if you have no understanding of emotions and don't experience them yourself. Put yourself in the place of Sabrina's boyfriend Mark who suddenly has a person who looks like his girlfriend and shares all her memories. How would you react when you realize this interloper knows the details of all the intimate experiences you and your girlfriend have shared?

This book could have used another round of proofing before publication. The issues I saw are all minor, using the word "suite" instead of "suit" or "marshall" instead of "martial" are two examples I found twice each. Although I found many of these type errors, well over the threshold where I assume it won't impact the reading experience, for me the kinds of errors and frequency were not so bad as to continually jolt me out of the story and had minimal impact on my reading enjoyment.

A blonde model goes to a new tanning salon run by a kind old man. She dozes off, feels some weird pains, and when she wakes up hours later, another blonde looking exactly like her is lying in the next tanning bed. Weird, huh? What would you do? Thus begins Pam Richter's "The Living Image", a tale of a scientist, his fascinating human/chemical computer creation, and his greedy sons trying to sell the model and her clone to a Japanese businessman, the CIA, and the KGB.

Richter's story revolves around Sabrina, the model, and Eve, the clone+computer who not only has inherited her memories and her looks, but also has astonishing strength and incredible healing powers. Sabrina has to not only help Eve learn to overcome her naive-ness and survive, but she has to figure out her relationship with her erstwhile boyfriend and keep her boutique running. Meanwhile we watch Eve discover the world through newly-opened eyes, fall in love, and learn to control her computer-aided powers.

I enjoyed this book, and I liked how Richter explored the topic of cloning, computers, and how we'd react to somebody carrying our same memories. Richter uses a gentle voice, and I enjoyed the pace she set, especially as she ratcheted up the tension toward the end. Some of the side characters seemed a bit cliched, especially the money-hungry lawyers and the Japanese businessman, but I think Richter did this on purpose to make Sabrina and Eve that much more fleshed-out.

I really enjoyed Pam Richter's "The Living Image" and pretty much devoured it! It was fun, fast-paced,smart, and it was funny.

A kindly, brilliant scientist develops a supercomputer that to implant into into a human baby, then cloned from a fashion model. His greedy, goon lawyer sons find out and look for buyers. (They find more than they can handle!) The US Gov't also finds out...and everyone wants this potential bionic weapon, er...human.

What ensues involves the CIA, the KGB, a Japanese ego-maniacal mogul, the Yakusa - all looking for this stunning, superhuman and her look-alike. They are identical, but one gulps pancake syrup, likes Creme de Menthe w/soda, & enjoys crunching roast bones. One of them bites when angry. The other is a smart, part-time model, a full-time fashion designer, and boutique owner.

Did I mention the KGB agent is smokin'? So is the investigative reporter. So, there is romance: both sweet and sexy.

The danger is taut and fast-paced. There's even a Republican Convention!

The identical women develop a deep, sisterly twin love and loyalty. This was a beautifully written aspect in the story.

Easy to read escape. Pure enjoyment! Curl up w/a cuppa something and a box of cookies.
It's only 99cents. A steal.
