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

You Will Know Me is a stunning, original and remarkable novel . . . viscerally evoked and the tension simmering away in an ordinary community is depicted with both precision and lyricism . . . Abbott's prose is precise and striking yet somehow also contains a dreamlike quality.
Big Issue
Another star of the genre . . . specialises in seamy pageturners probing dark desires in the pristine picket-fence suburbs of her native Midwest . . . the truth in this story of chilling sacrifice proves morally knottier than we can guess
Metro
Abbott is outstanding at illuminating the dark drama at the heart of family life . . . brilliantly begs the question of whether good people are capable of bad deeds.
