Today I am thrilled to be sharing my review of I Know Everything by Matthew Farrell. Happy publication day Matthew!
About the book:
A psychologist grapples with his own sanity as murder evidence mounts against him!
Police investigator Susan Adler is ready to close the book on a deadly car accident, but after the medical examiner discovers evidence of foul play, she knows she has a murder on her hands. The victim was the wealthy wife of Randall Brock, a renowned psychologist who treats patients with disturbing, brutal fantasies. And just like that, Susan’s got a suspect.
Randall has a violent past but knows he didn’t kill his wife. In the midst of his crushing grief, Randall receives a visit from a stranger with information to share about his wife’s death. But there’s a catch: in exchange for the stranger’s information, Randall must reveal dark secrets he’s kept hidden for years. As this shady figure applies more pressure and Susan closes in, Randall begins to doubt himself, clinging desperately to the pieces of his sanity.
Revelations and suspicious coincidences send shock waves through the investigation, and circumstances spin out of control. Susan must race to put it all together before it’s too late—before the next murder strikes too close to home.
This book is amazeballs! Talk about being thrown in from the get go! I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough on my kindle to read more. A well written, researched and crafted thriller that had me reading well into the morning! Make sure you are prepared for this, as once you start you won’t be able to stop reading this! If you love a story full of twists and turns, then this is definitely the book for you.
The plot of the story is one full of mystery and suspense. It looks like any other tragic car accident, but just as inspector Susan Adler is about to close the case, information comes to hand from the medical examiner that this was no accident. Susan now has a murder to solve!
When Randall Brock is informed of his wife Amanda’s tragic passing, his world comes crashing down. A psychiatrist who treats patients with violent fantasies, it isn’t long before Randell comes under suspicion and is Susan’s prime suspect.
In regards to the characters, Matthew has created a mixed bag that are both extremely well written and memorable. The standout for me was Randall. What a complex and fascinating character he is and one that has you feeling mixed emotions about. He keeps you guessing throughout as to whether he is the good guy or the bad guy. I also really liked Inspector Susan Adler and think she is a strong character that would make for a great series.
I really enjoyed Matthews writing style and how it makes the story go at break neck speed. I was torn on wanting to savour the book as I was enjoying it so much to wanting to see what was going to happen. Matthew excels in teasing the reader throughout wanting more till the explosive finale which does not disappoint!
Apart from the story itself, one of the main things that also attracts me to a book, is it’s cover. Whoever the designer for this one is, they have nailed it. It sets up the tone of the book perfectly.
All up this is an addictive and enjoyable read, which I highly recommend and one that I would definitely read again.
Thank-you to NetGalley, Thomas & Mercer and Matthew Farrell for allowing me to read an advanced copy of I Know Everything which I have review honestly and voluntarily.
