Dorothy Koomson: I Know What You’ve Done

This review is written with thanks to Pigeonhole for the opportunity to read and review I Know What You’ve Done.


What if all your neighbours’ secrets landed in a diary on your doorstep?

What if the woman who gave it to you was murdered by one of the people in the diary?

What if the police asked if you knew anything?

Would you hand over the book of secrets?

Or … would you try to find out what everyone had done?

I Know What You’ve Done is the unputdownable thriller from the Queen of the Big Reveal.


From the beginning of I Know What You’ve Done, there are so many questions! Koomson’s writing is excellent and I love the way she plants clues throughout the novel to keep us asking more! At times, it did take a lot of concentration to keep up with what was happening where, but I was hooked from the start and I was so disappointed when each stave ended! 

Each chapter in I Know What You’ve Done is narrated by a different resident of Acacia Villas. This gives the reader a lot of insight into the characters and makes it really difficult to know who to trust. They are all brilliantly constructed and I really wanted to know the stories that had led them to this point. There were a few who really got under my skin because they were so awful and I love characters who create this reaction in me. 

I loved the mystery in this novel and I really wanted to get to the bottom of what had happened. As the plot takes hold, the tension really rises and there are so many red herrings to keep us on our toes. I will definitely be keeping this book in mind for a while! 

I Know What You’ve Done is available from Amazon.
