Meet Aimee Sinclair: the actress everyone thinks they know but can’t remember where from.
Except one person.
Someone knows Aimee very well.
They know who she is and they know what she did.
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.
In I Know Who You Are, Alice Feeney proves that she is a master of brilliantly complicated plots and killer twists that will keep you guessing until the final page.
You may remember me raving about Feeney’s debut novel, Sometimes I Lie all year last year so I was so anxious to see if her second novel would pack the same punch as the first and the answer to that is a resounding hell yeah!! I was just as blown away by this one and can say I’ll be reading anything the author writes in the future.
This is told via two timelines, one with Aimee in 2017 London and the other back in the 80’s follows a little girl and that’s all I’m going to say about that. Both timelines were equally captivating, I was hooked right away. I started this before bed one night just to get a feel for the story and ended up staying up way later than I had planned because it was just that addictive. I can’t even begin to tell you how many twists and turns this one took I swear there was some sort of reveal almost every single chapter and that’s what made it truly difficult to stop reading this one once I started.
Besides an insanely fast paced plot Feeney came up with a really original concept here and that’s something that I’ve personally found lacking in so many thrillers lately. She pushed the boundaries and I absolutely love that, she went dark and twisted, so much so that I was downright shocked in the end. I had no idea where this was going and that’s my favorite type of thriller, I love being surprised and confused even and I had like a zillion theories about this one. Only one was actually partially right so bravo to the author for that! If you like SIL this is a must read and if you haven’t read that then go ahead and get both of her books they’re fantastic!
I Know Who You Are in three words: Disturbing, Dark and Twisted.
