Why would you do that? Plus Felix Abernathy is arguably the biggest villain in the entire book but he doesn't get his comeuppance at all No repercussions whatsoever Sure shifty cunning and opportunistic Cody gets what he deserves but I actually don't care What he did wasn't all that bad At least not bad enough for me to be satisfied by just him being dealt with Also think about it did we need Jessy Paige in this book? Did we really? What did she contribute?And all of the artlessly done red herrings Ghost? What was even the point of putting that in the book? It felt so out of place and ended up leading absolutely nowhereWeirdest of all was Fletcher's character What is he supposed to be? A corrupt cop? Who cares only about power? Well that's certainly not what he was introduced as He keeps flashing back to Charlie dying in his arms until the very end of the book yet it doesn't seem to affect his desire to find the actual killer one bit Instead he pins it all on Sidney and calls it a day In what world does that make any sense?? hide spoiler

book I Know You Know

I Know You KnowEspecially Charlie’s mother Jess who decides to take matters into her own handsWhen 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 jeopard I received an advance reader’s edition of this book as a Goodreads Giveaway Expected publication is in September 2018“I Know You Know” tells the story of the murder of two 11 year old boys revisited 20 years later after the man convicted of the crime Sidney Noyce kills himself in prison and a man’s body is uncovered near the original murder site Scott Ashby and Charlie Paige were best friends along with Cody Swift Cody was being punished the night the boys were killed which is the reason he wasn’t with them As an adult Cody begins recording and airing a podcast and starts dredging up details based on an article by a reporter who covered the original trial and doesn’t believe that the right man was convicted Interesting premise not so interesting executionThe first few chapters hooked me pretty well I wanted to find out how the murders 20 years ago tied to the discovery of the body in the present day Throughout the book we meet many characters who are developed well – the detectives on the original case Charlie’s mother and her current family her former “boyfriend” Felix and a variety of other characters who seem incidental to the story The exception in character development is Cody Swift and he’s the one we should know the most about He felt to me like a faceless public radio personality His voice in my imagination was very humdrum and uiet almost like he was introducing “the soothing sounds of smooth jazz” or something – not at all like a true crimedetective recording which is what he was portraying And every chapter that was an episode of the podcast had the lines “My name is Cody Swift I’m a filmmaker and your host of ‘It’s Time to Tell’ a Dishlicker Podcast Production” By the end of the book I had had enough of Cody’s introductions and his podcasts were excruciatingly boring I’m not a listener of podcasts but if they all play dialog like this I’m not missing anything“Annette hello Is that really you?”“You’re all grown up Cody Swift Look at you”“You recognized me right away”“You’ve still got that up to no good look about you”“Really? I’m not sure that’s a good thing”Spoilers aheadI felt like there were a lot of things wrong with the plotlinesFirst you have a detective who is portrayed as really caring about putting away the person who killed the two boys but he destroys evidence covers up for pimp turned PR guy Felix helps frame the lead investigator on the case to get him pulled off the case convinces witnesses to fit their statements and testimony to his story and pries a false confession out of the mentally handicapped Sidney ignoring all other leadsSecond when the new body is uncovered near where the boys were killed the reader almost has to believe that the murders are unrelated and years apart because how could the man’s body not be discovered at the same time as the boys Through the course of the book however we learn that the boys were killed because they saw the other crime taking place Why would the killer hide one body and leave the other two out in the open? And supposedly the killer hid the body so well that it wasn’t found for 20 years? And the man who was killed was reported missing two days later and no one uestioned whether there was a connection? There’s also the fact that Charlie was found alive and muttered the word “ghost” before he died in the detective’s arms The author tries to bring that reference full circle at the end of the book and it’s completely irrelevant in my opinion But you’re telling me that no one investigated that 20 years before?Third we find out that Cody actually knew all along what happened to his friends kept uiet all of these years and only came forward when the article came out because he wanted a publicity stunt to start a new businessusing the pimpPR guy as his PR guyFinally the actual killer is already dead and doesn’t even get his comeuppance What a letdownI just didn’t enjoy this at all And the book title should have just been “It’s Time to Tell” That’s the name of Cody’s podcast and it just seems fitting I didn’t find a reference to “I Know You Know” anywhereMy opinionskip this one
