Event description

Description

Blackwell's Bookshop is delighted to host Brooke Magnanti for her new crime thriller You Don't Know Me.

About the Book

When you try to bury the past, the past will bury you…

Miri Goldstein was a call girl with connections to powerful men. Now that she's dead, some can breathe more easily. But the grave is not good at keeping secrets. As media dig into Miri’s past, her old friend Denise worries her own will rise to the surface.

Meanwhile in Scotland, controversial forensic pathologist Harriet Hitchin is put in a bind when the body turns up on her patch. Police think they have their killer but Harriet is certain they made a mistake. If she’s wrong, it will end her career. If she’s right it could cost her life.

The case will play games with all who come near and force them to ask – how many of us are living a lie?
With a taut pace and a twisted sense of humour, You Don’t Know Me is a sexy thriller from someone who knows exactly what it means to live a double life.

‘Hugely impressive … Brooke writes the kind of women we want to see in crime fiction.’ Russel McLean
