Synopsis

Almost unbearably tense, chilling and addictive . . . Exceptional' - Paula Hawkins, author of Girl on the Train

A mother knows best . . . doesn't she?

Talented and determined, Devon is the centre of her ambitious parents' world, and the lynchpin of their marriage. There is nothing Katie and Eric wouldn't do for her.

When a violent hit-and-run accident sends shockwaves through their close-knit community, Katie is immediately concerned for her daughter, a rising star of the gymnastics world. She and Eric have worked so hard to protect Devon from anything that might distract or hurt her. That's what every parent wants for their child, after all. Even if they don't realize how much you've sacrificed for them. Even if they are keeping secrets from you . . .

Plotted with all the brilliance of Dare Me, and written with the compassion of The Fever, the astonishing You Will Know Me - dark and tender by turns - is an unforgettable novel by Megan Abbott.

In the media

Abbott has a knack for dissecting the dark, beating heart of the most all-American activity . . . dazzling . . . It's vivid, troubling and powerful - and Abbott totally sticks the landing
Booklist
Abbott's ability to build suspense and feed on readers' fear is nearly unparalleled . . . Her thousands of fans have been hungry for this book for a while, and with good reason: it's both terrifying and gripping.
Elle USA
A must read . . . observed with the eye of an anthropologist and intermittently described (in trademark flashes of lyricism) with the pen of the poet . . . mixes an incredible crime plot with beautiful writing.
