I’m delighted to be joining the blog tour for Alice Feeney’s second novel, I Know Who You Are.
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 another twisty, cleverly constructed story by Alice Feeney and it was so gripping. Sometimes a book just comes along and once you start reading, you can’t stop; it pulls you in so effortlessly and keeps you gripped. This, for me, is that book. I was a fan of her previous book Sometimes I Lie, so I knew what to expect from Alice, this time around I kept a very close eye on all of the characters and tried to see if I could work out what was going to happen, but I still couldn’t.
Right throughout this read, there was a building sense of suspense. We follow two timelines, in the present day, 2017, when Amy Sinclair is working as an actress, whose career is just beginning to take off and back to 1988 when a young girl, Ciara goes missing. Both storylines had me gripped, particularly in the present when Amy’s husband disappears, and she soon finds herself falling under the suspicion of the police. Amy is an unreliable narrator, she can’t be sure if she was involved in her husband’s disappearance or not. Someone appears to be targeting her, but who? And what connection does this have to her past?
Alice Feeney did keep me thinking about how two timelines were going to come together. This book is plotted so, so well, and the twists that came towards the end left me feeling shell shocked. I really couldn’t believe what I was reading on the page when one particular revelation was dropped, and I was staring at the page open-mouthed.
There are some parts of the back story, which I think some readers will find distressing, particularly when Alice takes us back to 1988, but they are essential to the book. I had so many questions running through my mind as I was reading. In the present, I wasn’t sure who I could trust. When Amy’s husband disappears, her world begins to fall apart, and I wanted to know who was doing this to her and for what reasons, also if she had any role to play. I could never be sure if she was innocent or not.
This is a brilliantly written book that kept me engaged and asking questions about the characters. Well written and with high levels of tension right throughout; I really enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to reading more from Alice Feeney.
