    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...

    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 ...

    1970-01-01
    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.

    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.

    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...

    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 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'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...

    Definitely a great read! A twenty year old murder of two young boys comes back to life in all of its ugliness through a podcast! To reopen and investigate further will open old wounds and buried secrets. Some involved are not happy! Did the police make a mistake? Can this podcast help to put this case to a close?

    Three eleven-year-old boys out playing. One gets grounded by mom for ripping his shirt. The other two die before reaching home. Now, twenty years later, the body of an adult male shows up near the place the boys were found. Did they convict the wrong guy or is this a coincidence? The cops and the surviving kid have to find out. Pretty good read.
