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

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.

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.

The beauty of this book is the psychological aspect behind the story. A side story looks at psychiatrists who are working w

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.

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

Wow, what a gripped twisting tale. I can’t lie at first I expect this novel to be cut and dry type of plot. Boy was I wrong! The twists and turns. It made me want to keep reading to find out if my prediction was right or wrong. Who was the murderer, typically I am not wrong and I can see where the story is going.

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 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

I had very mixed feelings about I Know Everything. Just 10% or so into the book, I thought about quitting because I thought I knew exactly where it was heading and I wasn't interested. I was very, very wrong. This is a very twisty, extremely dark mystery/thriller that starts with a fatal car crash and then spirals into madness. It turned out to be a page-turner, a well-written thrill ride. The conclusion was a bit too contrived for me, but overall, a good read.

Thank you NetGalley and the publish

I read this author's first book and enjoyed it much more. This one was sort of all over the place for me, especially with what the professors were doing. I will admit there were a lot of twists and turns but all in all it was not outstanding for me. A 3 star.

This book took off a little slow, but the Devil is in the details. Everything is important. I figured out The Whodunnit several times... and I was wrong several times. Then I was like whaaat, and I was like No way... and I was like holy mother of.... it was twisted and gripping and a definite page turner!

Incredibly readable, twisty, turny, and pretty clever red-herrings. Full review soon on CDonline.
Thank you netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This was a chilling mystery,thriller that had me on my toes and reminded me of the movie Shutter Island. Randall is a psychiatrist working on helping mentally ill patients overcome their urge to kill. What you don't expect is the doctor's own mental state and the twist and turns this novel takes as it works to unravel the truth. Expertly done with right amount of suspense and intrigue.

This book didn’t capture my attention right away like the author’s last book, but I did end up invested in the characters and the story.

There were several twists and red herrings introduced that will probably work for many readers. Unfortunately, none of them were a big surprise for me, which made the book too predictable for my liking. Despite that, the author’s writing style was solid enough for me to derive some enjoyment from reading the story, and I’d definitely be willing to give his next

This book is amazeballs! Talk about being thrown in from the get go! I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough on my kindle to read more. A well written, researched and crafted thriller that had me reading well into the morning! Make sure you are prepared for this, as once you start you won’t be able to stop reading this! If you love a story full of twists and turns, then this is definitely the book for you.

Interesting concept and well written. I didn’t realize this book is piggybacking on the author’s previous book - What Have You Done. It’s not critical that you read the first book though it does come to play in the epilogue. I had to do a bit of sleuthing to figure out the reference and once I did it was an appreciated tidbit.

This book has a nice amount of surprises, twists and red herrings. Some things I saw coming, most I did not. It’s a pretty dark story full of some pretty evil character

This was a brilliant twisty tale that captivated me from start to finish. I figured out part of the big reveal early on, but that's likely due to a coincidence of timing that I can't identify because it'll give things away, but that in no way affected my enjoyment of the entire story. This was, simply put, a great read. High energy, gruesome bits and all, from start to finish. The characters were very well-crafted and thoroughly engrossing, as was the plot.

It doesn't take long for you to be brought into the meat of this story, just a little lead-in and then we're off! The first half, has its predictable ups and downs, but the story remains engaging and interesting. Of course, given this is a mystery, and the summary from the description, we all knew there would be plot twists. They aren't really hard to see coming, even though there are a couple redirects that could keep you guessing, it's not re

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

With great characterisation, the pacing was good throughout and there was no superfluous padding to distract.
