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 is a intricately crafted story of deceit and betrayal. It delivers an important message at its heart – never be as trusting as your heart wants to be. Darkly sinister and a level of unease that kept me rooted to the spot.
Some novels were just written so that they make there way to you just at the right time. I Know Who You Are is just one of those novels. I’ve been stuck in a bit of a rut for a few weeks now. I’ve been reading but nothing was particularly hitting the mark. I needed drama, I needed action, I needed a good storyline. A lot of my blogger friends have commented on Feeney’s narrative style, so I took the plunge, I only just wished I hadn’t waited so long. It pulled me in immediately, with an intensity that was hard to ignore. Its just one of those stories that you read and immediately remember exactly where you were and at what time.
Two narrators, two timelines come together in a collision of past lives and future dreams.
“You should always fight, especially when you think you are going to lose. That’s when you should fight the hardest.”
Right from the start you get the feeling that this book is going to knock you for six in more ways than one. A punchy start with enough mystery to sink the titanic.
Aimee Sinclair is an up-and-coming actress. It’s taken her awhile to get the roles she really wants. The ones that mean something, ones she can get her teeth stuck into. She’s never really believed in herself but with the signing of her agent, things are starting to look up. She can start enjoying life…if only it wasn’t for her ache to be a mother, a dream that is flatly denied by her husband, Ben.
After returning from a long day of filming her new film, Sometimes I Kill, Aimee finds her husband missing. She knows he’s missing due to his wallet, keys and phone still on the coffee table. It’s true that they had a massive argument the night before, but this has happened several times. Jealousy and control rules their relationship. She’s been accused of having an affair with her co-star, Jack but it just isn’t true. In instances like these he turns into a different man, his rage gets the better of him and Aimee doesn’t know how they could’ve got it all so wrong. It used to be so good, if only he’d let her have a child, she knows things would change between them for the better.
Aimee drew me in with her silent plea to be a mother and her despair at her husband going missing. Her life was a whirlwind and her narration especially as a 6-year-old girl really pulled at the heartstrings. After being diagnosed with a form of amnesia due to trauma can she really trust the fact that she doesn’t remember doing something to her husband? He’s committed some truly terrible acts against her but was it enough to have her retaliating in the worst way?
