    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 ...

    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...

    I Know You Know is framed through a series of true crime podcasts produced by Cody Swift, whose two best friends were murdered 20 years earlier, when they were just 10 years old. 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. Coincidentally, as the podcast starts the bones of a long missing man are discovered near the spot that the boys’ murder t...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    I've enjoyed Gilly Macmillan's books in the past so I was eager to read her latest release, I Know You Know. Twenty years ago, eleven-year-olds Charlie Paige and Scott Ashby were murdered and their bodies were found near a dog racing track. Their other friend, Cody Swift was supposed to join them but because of a ripped new shirt, he was forbidden to leave the house as a form of a punishment by his mother. This had saved him from following his fr...

    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...

    I wrote a review on this and am disappointed it wasn’t saved.I did not like this book and was barely able to finish it. First, the story writing, going back and forth in time, along with the podcast, made the reading terribly complicated.There was not one character that drew you into the story. Fletcher turned out to be a bad cop. Danny protected his friend knowing Fletcher was deliberately closing a crime that was untrue. Jess allowed Felix to...

    I received an advance reader’s edition of this book as a Goodreads Giveaway. I actually would give this 3.5 stars as I had some problems with the book but it kept me riveted to find out the conclusion. Characters were well thought out and I had interest in all of them. Detective Fletcher pissed me off a lot which probably is the intended response. I never felt attached to Cody and the podcast portion was somewhat boring to read. Overall, I woul...

    There were some minor problems that nagged at me throughout the reading of this book, but it kept me guessing, so I was enjoying it in spite of its flaws. The ending ruined it for me, though.

    “The pit was a muddy gash in the car park in front of them, and the sticky clay soil inside it, a dull dirty orange.”I Know You Know by Gilly Macmillan begins with the discovery of some bones in a pit, near a dog track, that is being dug to expand a superstore. In the same area the bodies of two boys were found twenty years earlier in 1996. One boy had been murdered and the other was near death. The second boy died in Detective John Fletcher...

Twenty years ago his best friends, Scott and Charlie, were brutally beaten and left to die near a dog racing track. Due to a series of seemingly miniscule impediments, Cody was not with them during this act of violence and escaped unscathed - physically. He has been haunt...

    Thank you @harpercollinsca for the advanced copy of this one - I’m not sure I could have stood the excitement of waiting for it! When she announced the news, I was stoked to hear there was a new book coming, and honestly, it was worth the wait. I devoured this book in a day, staying up wellllll past my bedtime to finish; it was the perfect mix of twists and turns with a sprinkle of love-to-hate them characters. I Know You Know moves between t...

    I found I KNOW YOU KNOW to be a reasonably entertaining, reasonably suspenseful thriller. I was pleased to have it with me at the pool on a pleasant and sunny vacation, but that's about the extent of it. More than anything, the novel suffered from a lack of meaningful character development. As the story flits back and forth in time and between viewpoints, there aren't any characters that really emerge to engage us -- they exist merely to drive th...

    Twenty years ago, Scott Ashby and Charlie Page went out to play and ended up never being seen alive again. This murder mystery (more of a thriller) follows the boys' childhood best friend, Cody West as he investigates the murders of this two best friends through his podcast and a series of interviews of everyone involved with the case. Startling discoveries are made AND the man who was convicted of the boy's deaths may or may not have been the ki...

    Thanks to the publisher, via Edelweiss, for an advance e-galley in exchange for an honest review.If I hadn't already noticed "podcast as part of the storytelling" as a publishing trend, I would have had to pick up on it when I read two books in a week that used this device. This book is full of despicable characters (even those who inspire some sympathy are really far from faultless). I'm not sure if it was formatting in the e-galley or if the st...
