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.

"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.

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.

Only on rare occasions are we fortunate enough to run across a thoroughly new and original story. P. M. Richter has written one. It caught me off guard in the opening sentence and dared me to enter a world that is both frightening and deadly. Perhaps only P. M. Richter could have imagined such a twisted and tormented world.

She wrote: “Sabrina’s eyelids fluttered in the midst of a dream in which a tiny maniacal form was torturing her, fiendishly stabbing about her head with needles. It was so vivid and frightening she tried to awaken, like you can sometimes do in a shocking nightmare, but her body was paralyzed. She was blind. She couldn’t move.” I was trapped now. P. M. Richter had captured my imagination and had no intention of letting it go. Was it a dream? Or was it really a nightmare? Who was Sabrina and why is someone doing such terrible things to her?

She opens her eyes and feels as though she is looking into a mirror. She is staring into her own face, but it belongs to another. Sabrina, meet Eve. She is your exact double. She is like you in every way. She has your face, your body, and your mind. There is, however, one exception. Eve is a robot. Eve is your clone. She knows what you think. She feels what you have experienced. She’s in tune with your passions and fears, your hopes and worries. And she may be the most valuable, most sought-after commodity in the world.

Intelligence agencies will do whatever it takes to own Eve and the technology that has come so close to creating another human being. The CIA is after her. So are the Russians. And the Japanese aren’t far behind. There is only one problem. No one can detect any difference between Sabrina and Eve. If the wrong one dies, it’s nothing more than collateral damage.

Packed with lively characters and a strong plot, The Living Image sparkled images that refuse to leave my mind.

Here is an author who reaches up into the heavens and down into the hells of life and imagination and hauls back a story not only alive and kicking, but also infused with courage, determination, and a compassion to overcome all odds and set things right.

Possible story question: Can Sabrina and her identical (and then some) twin sister avoid the clutches of the CIA, the KGB, and a deadly Japanese overlord – and somehow carve a sane and meaningful life out of the chaos that now ensues them?
