Unabridged audio read by Stephanie Racine. 9 CDs
l Know Who You Are is the brilliant tale of two stories. One is about Aimee Sinclair—well-known actress on the verge of being full-on famous. If you saw her, you’d think you knew her. One day towards the near-end of her shoot on her latest film, Aimee comes home from filming to find her husband’s cell phone and wallet on the dining room table. He never goes anywhere without them. But he’s nowhere to be found. She’s not too concerned—they had a huge fight the night before. They both said things they didn’t mean. He might have done things he didn’t mean, things she can’t forget. Even though she has a history of supposedly forgetting. After all, she’s a very good actress.
Alternating with Aimee’s story is that of a little girl who wandered away from home. We always tell our kids not to talk to strangers or bad things will happen. Well, bad things happen. from Goodreads
Aimee is one of those characters you can’t quite trust. Yes, she’s an actress but she’s acting all wrong and you’re not sure why. Her husband goes missing and obviously they had their problems and she’s lying to police, but why? She’s not quite likable enough to pull it off. You also get the story of the little girl and it’s no surprise that it’s Aimee’s story and it helps explain why she seems so off. The police are sniffing around and she is totally unconcerned.
Honestly, I really didn’t really care one way or another but it was just interesting enough to continue listening and I’m glad that I did. For any fireworks that were missing for most of the story they all showed themselves in the last part of the book and they were worthy of a grand finale. I think the end will shock you, maybe even more than once. So, if you are willing to go slow and wait for he payoff this is your book.

I don’t think that slow story would work for me right now.
This was a bomb / DNF for me, disappointing as I liked her previous book.
I know what you mean. The ending was what saved it for me.
