Someone Else's Life by Kevin J. Simington - Guest Blogger Book Review

What if you weren’t who you thought you were?

A mysterious case of identity switching turns deadly when struggling private investigator, John Targett, becomes involved. As John seeks to unravel one mystery, he is also forced to deal with an escalating menace when he becomes the target of a vicious gang whose path he has crossed. As the twin plots intertwine and the threats escalate, John is forced to take extreme measures to protect his daughter and fight for his own life. Plagued by his own demons and trying to raise his daughter alone, this is a beautifully crafted story of the lengths to which one man will go to protect those he loves. At times tender, filled with sparkling wit and peppered with edge-of-your-seat action, this is a multi-faceted mystery that will satisfy on many levels.

Jennifer's Review
Someone Else's Life is a very good book. I enjoyed reading it. 
It's about a private investigator named John Target who has his own office and one day finds a homeless girl living in it. Instead of kicking her out, he allows her to help him with his cases. 
One day, a young man comes into the office with a request that is strange. He asks John to find out exactly who he is because he does not believe he is who he is.
When John and Quinn and Karl try to find out who the guy is, they end up in serious danger. But from who or what? The ending is a huge surprise you never will see coming. 
4 stars.

Author Bio
Kevin J Simington is a highly acclaimed writer whose fiction and non-fiction books have been lauded for their intelligence, wit and captivating writing style. He is a sought after keynote speaker who regularly speaks at conferences in the areas of philosophy, science and apologetics. He also writes for several magazines.

Kevin lives on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia, and has a wide range of interests. These include squash (he’s pretty good), running (he’s very fit), golf (he’s very bad), surfing (he thinks he’s pretty good, so let’s not spoil his fantasy), bike riding, tennis and music (he plays guitar in a covers rock band). He lives on a small farm (55 acres) with his wife and his daughter and her family. Together they have 1 cat, 3 dogs, 6 sheep, 10 pigs, 12 ducks, 100 cattle, 1,800 chickens and 1 horse. Kevin’s main contribution to farm work is patting the horse and the dogs.

Kevin has been an avid science fiction fan for over 40 years and cut his teeth reading the classics – Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, E. E. ‘Doc’ Smith, Arthur C. Clarke, Philip K Dick, Orson Scott Card and many others. He has a passionate interest in cosmology and astrophysics, and is still waiting for NASA to call him up to join the astronaut program.

After working for many years as a teacher and lecturer, in 2016 he quit to become a full-time writer, and soon published three very successful non-fiction books in the areas of philosophy, theology and apologetics. In 2019 he turned his hand to his long-held passion of science fiction, and the StarPath series was born. The series is now complete, with four novels comprising the widely-acclaimed quadrilogy. In 2020, Kevin published his first crime thriller, 'Someone Else's Life', which has been met with outstanding reviews and widespread acclaim.

Kevin has a fun-loving, laconic nature, and this comes through in his writing. His books are written with wit and warmth, and his characters are bursting with personality.
