Like feeling the sharp sting of a taut rubber band aimed at your sensitive skin.....again and again and again.

Ya know that Matthew Farrell doesn't believe in carousel rides. I Know Everything will be heavy on the psychosis sauce. But who exactly is serving it up and who exactly is partaking with spoon at the ready?

Dr. Randall Brock has been partnered with Dr. Peter Reems since their early days at NYU. Both are successful psychologists in the psychiatry department at Quarim University Ho

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free, electronic ARC of this novel received in exchange for an honest review.

Late one night, Amanda Brock’s car goes off the road, in what is initially assumed to be a tragic accident. However, when Inspector Susan Adler and her partner, Tommy, look further, they make the decision that Amanda was murdered before going off the road and that they are now looking at a murder investigation. Of course, the first suspect is her husband, local psychologist

This is my second book by Matthew Farrell and once again, I was not disappointed. Shrewdly written, suspenseful and fully engaging crime mystery novel that kept me guessing till the final pages. I am looking forward to reading more books from Mr. Farrell very soon.

Thank you NetGalley, Thomas & Mercer publisher, and the author for giving me an opportunity to read an ARC copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

I love books like this one. A lot of unknowns, turns and surprises. Fast past thriller with good detective work and people with some mental disorders. Susan Adler and Randall Brock are likable characters. I couldn’t put this book down until I knew who killed who.

I HATED how this book turned out! I only gave it 2 stars because most of the book was great until u get to around 80% and you find out what was really going on. I have said this many times before and I will say it again-come up with new and original reasoning behind a murderer and for the ending. This type of explanation(I won't go into detail because I do not want to ruin it for future readers) has been done in countless other novels and it just played out!

This was such an interesting and intriguing thriller!! I was hooked from the very first page! I think the storyline was so interesting, and it really had so many twists and turns. There were so many times in this book where I thought I had it all figured out and then another twist would happen. This was definitely a very gripping psychological thriller that really makes you think!

I also really liked the connection made in the epilogue of this book to another book by this author. Even though I ha

This book was a crazy ride. I was absolutely hooked from the get-go and can honestly say I could never have predicted this ending.

I Know Everything follows the mysterious murder of a woman and the police officers who investigate her case. As the husband looks more and more likely to be the prime suspect, his side of the story will definitely having you second guessing.

4.5 stars rounded up to 5!

This book takes off from the first page and keeps a quick, suspenseful, and nail-biting pace throughout the whole novel! I really loved all the twists and turns in this psychological thriller, and the characters were all unique as well which made for an enjoyable read. I thought I had it completely figured out and then BAM another unpredictable twist. “I Know Everything” was the perfect dark and thrilling book to end my year with!

Oh my, this was such a marvellous, quality read!

I Know Everything by new-to-me author Matthew Farrell certainly grabbed my attention. It's not necessary to have read Farrell's first novel. (What Have You Done? published in 2018) to fully enjoy this one. I was thrown in from the get-go and I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough on my kindle to read more.

With great characterisation, the pacing was good throughout and there was no superfluous padding to distract.
This was a well written, researched

4.5 stars.

There were some typos, a sudden name spelling change, and a character was referred to by the victim's name. All stuff that usually drives me really crazy, but I really liked the story. But this is also why I gave it 4.5 instead of 5 stars because it's still a big deal.

The book starts off with two coworkers who are trying to reduce violence in offenders and that piqued my interest quickly. Then one of the coworkers goes to support his wife at a charity event, ends up leaving early and

If you know me, you know that I used to be a reader that loathed the detailed and drawn out police procedurals but lately I’ve been getting more and more into them and I Know Everything really hit it out of the park for me! This book centers around our main character, Randall Brock, a psychologist known for treating patients with brutal and torturous fantasies. I really liked this aspect of the book because I haven’t read a book w
3.5 This book is fast and twisty! It’s been a while since I’ve read a psychological thriller so I enjoyed when certain events took me off-guard. Randall is an unreliable narrator and keeps his secrets close, which unfortunately makes him kind of a blank page. The other main character is Investigator Susan Adler and while her portrayal is nothing special, I liked her enough to root for her.

I’m not too sure about the medical aspects of the book and the way mental illness is discussed but I can’t s

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway, and that is a good thing. I am giving this 3 stars rounded up from 2.5 as I did finish it and it was not a bad read. It is full of red herrings (that I guessed most of the time) and dependence on mental illness as a plot device. The writing was just OK, the characterizations were rather flat, and the plot line attempted some trickiness that did not resonate with me. Most of the reviews are very good, so perhaps it was just not for me.

This was fantastic! Kept me turning the pages because I got so engrossed in the story. I loved the lead character. Susan and her two children lived together and her mom usually took care of them. Susan is a detective and she's just been assigned a new partner, Tommy. They are called out to the scene of what appears to be a car accident. Wealthy Amanda Brock is the victim. Returning home after a a fundraiser for a charity she supports, her car goes off the road and down a cliff. Upon investigatio ...more

This book exceeded my expectations in every way, and I LOVED every second of it. Matthew Farrell did an amazing job of writing an intricate web of moments that came together to create the perfect story. From the very first page I was immediately drawn in and couldn’t put it down. This story started off with psychological research and a benefit dinner, and quickly moved on to murder.

The main character Randall was likable and you could really feel that his life was being turned upside down. I also

WOW I wasn’t expecting to love this book as much as I did 😱 I didn’t really know much about this book going in to it, but I am so glad that I read it because it is definitely a new favorite of mine 😍 ⁣

My favorite part about this book was that it was a perfect blend of thriller and procedural. Procedurals can sometimes feel drawn out, but this one had elements of both procedural and thriller so it was extremely fast-paced. I was seriously hooked right from the beginning and it never onc

In all fairness to this book, it is probably a better book than I am giving it credit for.

I have not liked the last 5 books I've read, which really, what are the odds on that? So I'm thinking it's me and not the books.

I've been curious about Matthew Farrell ever since I heard a lot of acclaim for him after the release of his first novel, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE. Well, one thing I personally haven't done yet is read that book, but I plan to get to it soon - especially since he impressed me so much here with his second novel, I KNOW EVERYTHING.

I read a lot of mysteries and thrillers and I'm a little picky about them. This makes me sometimes cautious with books by authors that I've never read before. If I begin read

This guy is so good. You have no clue what's going to happen. You just keep turning the pages and trying to keep up with each new scene he throws at you. And just when you think you know everything, you don’t. He’s really good at dribbling in information to keep you turning the pages. Not to mention the twists, the turns...another wild ride by Matthew Farrell. Can’t wait for the next book!

I read Mathew Farrell’s first book and found it thrilling and enjoyable. When I learned his second book had been released, I thought, “I need to pick it up.” Had I known this was going to be one of the best psychological thrillers I’ve read this year, I would have been standing in line at the bookstore on release day.

I’ve read a few reviews saying the “main twist” is a bit of a cop out/overdone and i do slightly agree BUT i feel it was played out in a nice way involving the other characters. i want MORE from

“I Know Everything” is a page-turner and breathtaking novel.

We follow Susan Adler, a brilliant Police Investigator, who is investigating a deadly car accident. Medical exams led to evidence that the victim was murdered and the crime was disguised in car accident. The victim was the wealthy wife of Randall Brock, a psychiatrist who studies and treats patients with antisocial behaviour. Actually Randall Brock has himself a psychiatric story…..

The plot is well developed and the characters are well

A chronic problem with this genre.

SUMMARY: two therapists are trying to “fix” serial killers by taking them through their urges. One of the doctors wife ends up dead. Of course the police suspect him, especially as other evidence piles up (eg she was having an affair, planning to divorce, he would inherit 30mil) but before you figure out if he or someone c
