‘Someone You Know’ by Olivia Isaac-Henry #BookReview

You can trust your family, can’t you…?

Tess Piper was fourteen when her adored twin sister Edie disappeared.

She has spent the last twenty years building a life away from her fractured family, desperate to escape the shadow of the past.

Only now she needs to confront the huge hole her sister’s disappearance left in her life, because a body has been found. The police are shining a spotlight on the Piper family. And secrets are about to surface.

After all, it’s common knowledge that more often than not, these crimes are committed by someone close to the victim. Someone they trust. Someone they know…

What really happened to Edie Piper?

Tess has been struggling to come to terms with her sister’s disappearance for years. Now, it’s all being brought back again, and she’s plunged back into the horror of that time, questioning everyone around her. She doesn’t know who to trust.

A fabulous twisty-turny thriller, with a great main character, ‘Someone You Know’ is a very accomplished debut. There are some clever red herrings, some very perceptive characterisation, and a real sense of time and place in those parts of the story that take place in the nineties.

I wasn’t completely convinced by the ending, if I’m honest, but this is certainly a great debut in the genre.
