Reviewed by Viga Boland for Readers' Favorite

When, after enjoying a novel as suspenseful as I Know You, author Erik Therme tells you that “When I started writing I Know You, I had no idea who had abducted Alissa or for what reason...” it’s almost hard to believe. The plot is so well crafted, the characters so human, the dialogue so realistic and the themes so subtly interwoven within a minimum of pages that there is no desire to put the book down until the story is finished.

The plotline may not be new. No-one sees Alissa being abducted. Shortly after, cryptic, frightening texts start arriving on Bree’s phone. Does the abductor want money? Unlikely; the sisters live in a trailer park. Has Alissa been snapped up by traffickers? If so, then why is Bree being told the person they really want is her brother, Tyler? Why Tyler? What or who has he gotten involved with? And of course, Bree has been warned not to contact the police. Just the usual stuff of suspense novels, right? Wrong!

Therme’s characters have told him where to take this story of a 26-year-old woman desperately racing against the clock to locate her missing teenage sister. The plot turns and the twisted mind behind this abduction keep readers flipping the pages faster than that clock is ticking. But where the characters, both good and bad, take Therme surprises him and fully absorbs the reader. Together with Therme, we realize that I Know You is not just a simple story about abduction, but a thought-provoking and moving novel about family love. Don’t miss this one. I loved it!
