Reviews I Know You Know

  • Bkwmlee
    The summary for this book describes it as an “original, chilling, twisty mystery,” which I definitely feel is fitting, however I would also add one more word to that description: clever! This is one of those books where it’s best to go in knowing as little as possible and let the flow of the story take you on a ride that is at once thrilling and completely unpredictable! I’ve read my fair share of thrillers / psychological suspense novels...

    Gilly Macmillan is a master when it comes to creating perfectly-plotted psychological suspense and characters with real emotion and depth. I KNOW YOU KNOW is a smart thriller that will keep readers on the edge of their seats, from the first gripping chapter all the way through to the mind-blowing finale. Add this to your to-read list.

    Favorite Quotes: If you can control where an interview takes place, you are part of the way to controlling the interview itself. Location matters. Fletcher’s wife announced she was leaving him when they were in the Costco car park. He didn’t see it coming. He remembers acutely the humiliation of loading bags into the boot of the car while she explained across the laden shopping trolley that their marriage was over. “Well, why are we buying ...

    Hands down one of the best thrillers I have read this year - the dual timeline/flashback/podcast format kept the plot moving quickly and kept me guessing - all while maintaining a great element of suspense. As plot twists were revealed, I found myself needing more and more - until the very last page. The plot is centered around a 20 year old murder of 2 young boys and the three perspectives are Cody, the third best friend of the boys who survived...

    I first came across the “book within a book” concept in Emily Carpenter’s The Weight of Lies, and I totally fell in love with it. Since then there have been a few books that have featured social media or podcasts in their stories, such as Are You Sleeping by Kathleen Barber and Our House by Louise Candlish, and I have hoovered them up hungrily. I love Gilly Macmillan’s writing, and her new book was one of my most anticipated new releases ...

    Thanks to TLC Book Tours and William Morrow for the copy in exchange for my honest reviewThe best way to describe this book is unique and clever. Reading so many different thrillers you begin to notice that they begin to follow the same patterns and can become predictable in some ways. I KNOW YOU KNOW by Gilly Macmillan definitely breaks that mold and brought something different to the table. Two murders committed 20 years apart – are they conn...

    I received an advance reader’s edition of this book as a Goodreads Giveaway. Expected publication is in September 2018.“I Know You Know” tells the story of the murder of two 11-year-old boys, revisited 20 years later after the man convicted of the crime (Sidney Noyce) kills himself in prison and a man’s body is uncovered near the original murder site. Scott Ashby and Charlie Paige were best friends, along with Cody Swift. Cody was being p...
  • Linda Lipko
    This tale holds the reader, until the plot thickens and becomes too convoluted. Still, it is worth the read because this is an author who knows how to write suspense. Approximately 20 years earlier, two eleven year old boys were found buried in a space behind a local dog race track. Detective John Fletcher was on scene, and sadly, one of the children died in his arms.Fast forward to current time when the body of a man is found in the same area, a...

    Wow! Just, wow! Still reeling after completion of this well-written, throughly absorbing thriller. Once again, hats off to yet another British author. Is it something in the tea? Because the writers from across the pond excel at their craft.In 1996 two young boys were brutally murdered (is murder ever NOT brutal?) their bodies dumped near a dog track. A mentally challenged man was convicted of the crime and sentenced to prison. Twenty years later...

    It was just okay for me. Not good, not great. I loved Perfect Girl, this one wasn’t near as good for me. The storyline was good, the execution not so much. And the ending was really weak. Characters were all pretty much unlikable and not a lot of development for me there. This Is a 2 1/2 for me.

    #FirstLine ~ The weather is raw.This book was quite spectacular. I thought it was brilliantly plotted and paced, with a premise that was both engaging and original . The characters are all complex and the back stories are also quite intriguing. You never really know where the story is going to take you, which is fantastic! A fast paced, intense and emotionally charged read that is perfect for fall and book clubs! A must read!

    Thanks to Goodreads Firstreads and William Morrow for an arc of I Know You Know by Gilly Macmillan. The following is my honest review of the book:If you've never had the opportunity to read anything by Gilly Macmillan and you like thrillers, I highly recommend you pick up one of her books and dive in. To date, I've been hooked on everything I've read by her.In this book, two boys were brutally murdered twenty years ago and their bodies were dumpe...

    Brilliant! I enjoyed this book very much. I loved the podcast element. The twists that came were absolutely surprising for me. I think this is one of those books that you will either love or hate. Some of the characters you will probably dislike and distrust. One of those I could relate to which made it easier for me to understand her even while I didn’t trust her. This is a crime thriller with two children who are murdered. I think that is dif...

Cody is convinced the man who was convicted of their murders was not guilty and hopes that time will uncover facts that weren’t discovered then.

    I enjoyed this book and kept interested all throughout the story. It kept you wondering about who was guilty of what. None of the characters had a likable personality, so it was hard to feel bad for any of them. The story was tricky and twisting. Definitely a great beach read or plane ride book. A page turner and good mystery.

    This one was definitely fun. Macmillan is a FANTASTIC writer. Her metaphors specifically sometimes leave me with goosebumps. She really is crazy talented. This book kept me guessing. I loved it. ***It was a little hard to follow on audio because it jumps from past and present so much. That isn't the fault of the author, just the format.
  • Laura Rash
    I’m going to be in the minority here but I found this book tedious. And the ending was like a deflated balloon finally let out its last air.

    A chilling and twisty murder mystery about two cases twenty years apart, a present-day podcast, in this framed tale, I KNOW YOU KNOW. Cody Swift lost his two best friends twenty years ago, when he was eleven. Now, a filmmaker, he wants to get to the bottom of the truth and so has begun recording and airing a podcast, 'Time To Tell,' about the grim murders. But there's new evidence brought to light: a long-dead body has been discovered in the same...
  • Linda
    Three and a half star is my actual rating despite most of the characters depicted are totally unlikable. Also, some readers may find the story line involving the twenty-year-old murders of two preteen boys difficult. However, Ms. Macmillan expertly recounts a very complex tale filled with very interesting, if detestable, characters.Twenty years ago Detective John Fletcher solved the case of the murders of Charlie Paige and Scott Ashby. But when t...
  • Beth
    I KNOW YOU KNOW is a mystery. It is not an exciting one and seems pretty bland at times during the first half of the book. But it becomes more and more of a page turner until the last couple of chapters become a delightful surprise. Twenty years ago two boys were murdered. Although someone was found guilty of the murders and put away, was he really responsible? Now a 20-year-old skeleton of a man is unearthed near where these murders occurred. Ar...
