THE ALTER PREY by [Frederick Mulae]

The Alter Prey by Fredrick Mulae is an intriguing psychological thriller containing numerous concepts and introductions into the realms of professional psychology and hypnosis. In a series of fast paced events, Stuart, the protagonist, a private psychologist who specializes in hypnotism as a form of therapy, unearths his deeply buried childhood trauma and faces becoming diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID).

Any reader who enjoys this type of genre will enjoy the realistic psychological aspects within this book, likely being kept on the edge of their seat as Stuart and the supporting protagonists – in particular Robbie – are caught up in a series of enthralling events occurring due to this second personality developing. The story is punctuated by moments of suspense and incidents of crime, making this a definite page turner. The storyline tests the readers’ understanding of morality with regard to the actions of ‘Paolo’ as well, giving the story compelling depth.

I liked how author Frederick Mulae normalizes and destigmatizes various therapy techniques and conditions while the main protagonist searches for answers to his psychological state. It cleverly presents a situation in which an alternate personality could be damaging and detrimental to the individual, and I find it particularly interesting how the author has made the protagonist a clinical psychologist, someone who would be brought in to assess his very own mental state.

The Alter Prey is a riveting psychological thriller that explores mental issues and the methodical unraveling of a man whos’ suppression of his past has criminal consequences. I recommend this book to readers fascinated with the world of criminal psychology and the thriller genre as this is a thought-provoking and intellectually invigorating novel.
