4 Stars from me
Miranda Rijks is one of my ‘always read’ authors, I love her writing style. I find the words just flow so naturally, in such a straight forward way that I am engrossed in the story within a couple of pages.
There is always an element that messes with your mind – and What She Knew is no exception! I found myself going through the wringer along with Stephanie as she tried to work out what was real and who she could trust.
Flipping between present day and Stephanie’s uni days, this story had me constantly questioning what was real and quite why she let herself be controlled so much… or was she being?
Miranda Rijks creates the perfect storm for psychological thrillers and this one is no different – it will make you think, doubt, fear and be desperate to know the truth.
Blurb: Nine years ago, Stephanie’s best friend vanished. Now she’s back to haunt her. Life has been good to Stephanie. Married to college professor, Oliver, with two adorable children, she lives in a lovely house, surrounded by beautiful things.
It hasn’t always been like this.
Nine years ago, Stephanie’s flatmate Alison vanished, presumed murdered. It was a horrible time, and Stephanie tries hard not to think about it.
But when a TV researcher working on a true crime series wants to interview her about the case, Stephanie is forced to confront the past and recognise that she has a deep need to answer one burning question – what happened to Alison?
It soon becomes clear that someone doesn’t want her digging for the truth and is willing to do anything to conceal a shocking web of lies. As her perfect life unravels, Stephanie realises that by opening a door into the past she has woken a sleeping monster. And now it’s her own life that is on the line…
What She Knew – the stunning psychological thriller from the best-selling author of The Visitors and The Arrangement.
