My Rating: 5/5
Review: A few years ago, I picked up a book that was on the new release shelf at my local library. That book was called WHAT SHE KNEW and little did I know, it was going to make me a huge fan of Gilly MacMillan. Ever since, I have inhaled all of MacMillan’s books as quickly as possible. This author is a master when it comes to writing psychological suspense and I have enjoyed every single one of her books. If you haven’t read her books, I encourage you to add them to your TBR.
I was honored to be able to participate in the blog tour for MacMillan’s newest novel, I KNOW YOU KNOW. I flew through this book pretty quickly because I had a hard time putting it down. I love books that have a story within a story and true crime podcasts just happen to be my jam. Luckily for me, this book had both of these elements! I’m so fond of books that include podcast within the plot line. It’s unique and always makes me pulls me in pretty quickly. I love how the podcast dropped little clues into the story that the reader can follow.
I don’t like it when a book is ruined for me because a review includes spoilers so I’m always hesitant to discuss anything further than how the book made me feel and what elements I liked. I think for this one I will keep it simple because I urge you to go in blind. This was an excellent mystery that kept me guessing until the last page. I would definitely recommend this to any reader who loves a good mystery that will keep them up late.

From New York Times bestselling author Gilly Macmillan comes this original, chilling and twisty mystery about two shocking murder cases twenty years apart, and the threads that bind them.
Twenty years ago, eleven-year-olds Charlie Paige and Scott Ashby were murdered in the city of Bristol, their bodies dumped near a dog racing track. A man was convicted of the brutal crime, but decades later, questions still linger.
For his whole life, filmmaker Cody Swift has been haunted by the deaths of his childhood best friends. The loose ends of the police investigation consume him so much that he decides to return to Bristol in search of answers. Hoping to uncover new evidence, and to encourage those who may be keeping long-buried secrets to speak up, Cody starts a podcast to record his findings. But there are many people who don’t want the case—along with old wounds—reopened so many years after the tragedy, especially Charlie’s mother, Jess, who decides to take matters into her own hands.
When a long-dead body is found in the same location the boys were left decades before, the disturbing discovery launches another murder investigation. Now Detective John Fletcher, the investigator on the original case, must reopen his dusty files and decide if the two murders are linked. With his career at risk, the clock is ticking and lives are in jeopardy…
