The Devil You Know by Elisabeth de Mariaffi

The Devil You KnowThe Devil You Know by Elisabeth de Mariaffi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A 4 star for me.


After reading the blurb it got me so excited and I couldn't wait to read it. I am not saying its a terrible read, far from it. For me, my personal reading, I would just like to have had the author take it up a notch so that the reader was so 'on the edge' that they had to sit and read this in one sitting. I easily could put it down and go off and do something else...........

Until....

We got to the middle of the book and it picked up pace [for me] that was when, everything in my daily life took a back seat and I stuck with it until the end.


We meet Evie Jones, when she was 11 years old her best friend vanished, never to be seen again. Lianne Gagnon who was killed in 1982, and Evie Jones blamed herself.


now she is an adult, she has a job that enables her to search for the killer because she's never rested, shes always believed that Liannes killer is 'out there somewhere'

We have the tenseness of a stalker in this book which ups the auntie and keeps you wondering....what next!

This is just my humble opinion, it was a great book, great concept of a story. I LOVED it in the end, but was slow at the start. If someone put this down and didn't stick with it, then they would miss out on a good read

I would like to thank Touchstone via Net Galley for allowing me to read this good thriller.




In the vein of Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects and A.S.A. Harrison’s The Silent Wife, The Devil You Know is a thrilling debut about a rookie reporter, whose memories of the murder of her childhood best friend bring danger—and a stalker—right to her doorstep.

The year is 1993. Rookie crime beat reporter Evie Jones is haunted by the unsolved murder of her best friend Lianne Gagnon who was killed in 1982, back when both girls were eleven. The suspected killer, a repeat offender named Robert Cameron, was never arrested, leaving Lianne’s case cold. 

Now twenty-one and living alone for the first time, Evie is obsessively drawn to finding out what really happened to Lianne. She leans on another childhood friend, David Patton, for help—but every clue they uncover seems to lead to an unimaginable conclusion. As she gets closer and closer to the truth, Evie becomes convinced that the killer is still at large—and that he’s coming back for her.
