His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined.

Someone Like Me centers on Graham Boyce, an FBI agent who is depressed. To lift his spirits, his psychiatrist suggest that he goes out and is social. He goes out, struggles to connect with others. He feels rejected. During that night, he leaves the restaurant for a walk to clear his head. He is being followed and realize with astonishment, that the man that follows him looks familiar to him or, more precisely, that man looks exactly like him. He feels threaten and fears for his life. Against his own best judgment, Boyce decides to follow his double through the night. What happens next is a wonderfully twisted reflection of personality and uniqueness? It is an amazing, brilliant thriller in this haunting tale of appearance versus reality. Greg Bolen described his objectives for the book: “I want to place the reader into the body of Graham Boyce with this book and to make the experience of the reader’s imagination, from beginning to end, an absolutely personal one.”
