The police think she’s hiding something and they’re right, she is – but perhaps not what they thought. Aimee has a secret she’s never shared, and yet, she suspects that someone knows. As she struggles to keep her career and sanity intact, her past comes back to haunt her in ways more dangerous than she could have ever imagined. I Know Who You Are will leave your heart pounding and your pulse racing. This is the most twisted thriller you’ll read all year.

Aimee Sinclair: the actress everyone thinks they know but can’t remember where from. But someone knows exactly who Aimee is, what she is done, and they are watching her every move.

Aimee is a newly successful actress, having just got her biggest part to date in a new film. She is beginning to be recognised, but is not A-List famous yet, and she is happy with that. Aimee loves to act, but it is a role she has been playing all of her life, pretending to be someone she's not.

She doesn't care about being famous, she just wants to be successful doing something she loves. 

Aimee's life is turned upside down in an instant, when her husband goes missing. He leaves his phone, keys and wallet behind, but not a trace of himself otherwise. It is almost as if he didn't exist. Aimee with her fledgling career was not keen on photographs being taken of them in public, and Ben was not a fan of photographs full stop. They weren't that sort of couple.

The Police find it strange that Aimee cannot find a recent photo of her husband, but Aimee does not. She also does not know how to act. For she and Ben has a massive argument the night before he disappeared, and Aimee wasn't sure that she wanted to see him again - but that doesn't mean she is responsible for his disappearance.

Aimee's behaviour doesn't sit well with the Police, who are convinced that she had something to do with her husband's disappearance. But the secrets that Aimee may be hiding and nothing to do with her husband, and more about herself. The sort of secrets that she wouldn't want anyone to know, particularly now that she is on the verge of being an overnight sensation.

I cannot say much more without giving anything away, but I Know Who You Are is a delight of a novel. The kind that will have you gripped and keep you guessing until it's conclusion, and even then you may be guessing wrong ... very wrong indeed.

I Know Who You Are is available now via Amazon online and all good book shops.
