I Know Who You Are by Alice Feeney is a shocking thriller which had me hooked very early on and kept me anticipating the next page right until the end. Even now, I want more from Amy Sinclair! This is a book for those who want serious drama and thrill in their stories, with a bit of a cheesy twist here and there. I Know Who You Are by Alice Feeney will be published by HQ on 16th May 2019.
Actress Amy Sinclair’s husband has gone missing. She’s worried about where he is, but doesn’t want the press to catch wind of the story, as the police are considering her a suspect, so tries to live her life as normally as possible. However, her husband is gone and somebody seems to be out to get her, sending notes and taking action to empty her bank account dressed like her. But Amy Sinclair isn’t her real name and somebody might know this. ‘This could be Amy’s biggest acting challenge yet.
Why I liked this book…
I Know Who You Are by Alice Feeney is a good thriller because you can never tell what’s coming, yet it is still believable enough to not throw it down in disbelief. I really enjoy an unreliable narrator, as well as seeing the development of how a character became who they are today, so this really hit the spot. Seeing Amy as a young girl learning to be disciplined and following her ‘mother’s’ advice shows how she came to be and why you might not be able to trust her completely.
The story itself also gripped me from page one. Reading Amy’s childhood stories in contrast to her current life events went hand-in-hand and took me on a very clear journey. I liked knowing the way the story would go, yet not knowing who would be the villain and how the ending would affect the main character and I was not disappointed. I found the police to be really good characters, particularly the main inspector, and I would have liked to have seen more of her later on in the book.
My only negative about this story was that the ‘big reveal’ was a bit too ‘telenovella’ style for me, but I understood its purpose and chose to be shocked and disgusted rather than finding it comical, so I hope that was what was intended. This reveal also showed Amy’s true character, and I couldn’t believe parts of it at that point.
Overall, I Know Who You Are by Alice Feeney is a very dramatic and fast-paced thriller with lots of intrigue and mystery. You have to read this to the last page to see every element of Amy’s character and the true nature of the story. I would recommend this to people who enjoy drama and reveals in their thrillers, as well as unreliable main characters and being shocked and fooled in many ways. This is a 4* read.
