The highly anticipated new novel from the international bestselling author of Sometimes I Lie, Alice Feeney’s new novel is her most twisted and nerve-wracking thriller yet.
Aimee Sinclair: the actress everyone thinks they know but can’t remember where from. But I know exactly who you are. I know what you’ve done. And I am watching you.
When Aimee comes home and discovers her husband is missing, she doesn’t seem to know what to do or how to act. The police think she’s hiding something and they’re right, she is – but perhaps not what they thought. Aimee has a secret she’s never shared, and yet, she suspects that someone knows. As she struggles to keep her career and sanity intact, her past comes back to haunt her in ways more dangerous than she could have ever imagined.
I Know Who You Are will leave your heart pounding and your pulse racing. This is the most twisted thriller you’ll read all year.
I Know Who You Are: A dark, chilling and clever psychological thriller with a killer twist
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
Aimee is a film actress that is just beginning to be recognised when she is out and about, with the paparazzi taking an interest on any exclusive footage that they can get on her. The thing is Aimee is use to playing the part of someone else, she has done since she was five when she was abducted from Ireland and taken to England. When she returns home one day, her husband Ben has disappeared, leaving behind his phone, wallet, clothes and everything anyone that was intending to walk out would take.
When Aimee tries to use her bank card it is rejected, an account that had held a substantial amount of money but the bank CCTV footage shows it was her that withdrew the cash but she knows it wasn’t. The police begin to look at Aimee in a different light than that of an abandoned wife.
This story pulled at me in so many emotional ways as it bounced back and forth between Aimee’s early life when she was another little girl and after she had been abducted. A scared and frightened child that had to learn quickly or face dreadful consequences. In present day time Aimee’s life was continuing to crack and break down as someone was trying to ruin what she had built and cause her to doubt her own sanity.
Alice Feeney had me bound to this book, I was unwilling to put it down for anything or anyone and although we were having one of the hottest days so far this year my blood ran cold and my skin had goose bumps. I scrutinised every character, hated some, felt betrayed by others and felt guilty at doubting Aimee’s sanity. Had her husband’s leaving pushed her over the edge?
Oh boy when this all began to click together it was like the biggest sugar rush and totally blew me away. I had to read the last few chapters again just to make sure that I squeezed every sensation from this ending. Pure perfection!
I wish to thank NetGalley and the publisher for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
