You Don't Know Me
By Brooke Magnanti
An electric thriller full of secrets, lies and hidden identities - you never truly know where you stand or who you stand with in this gripping thriller from Brooke Magnanti.
'Hugely impressive . . . Brooke writes the kind of women we want to see in crime fiction' Russel McLean
A body is found and questions must be answered - the conspiracy runs right to the top . . .
Miri Goldstein was a call girl with connections to powerful men. Now that she's dead, some can breathe more easily. But the grave is not always good at keeping secrets. As the media dig into Miri's past, her old friend Denise worries that her own will rise to the surface.
Meanwhile in Scotland, controversial forensic pathologist Harriet Hitchin is put in a bind when the body turns up on her patch. Police think they have their killer but Harriet is certain they made a mistake. If she's wrong, it will end her career. If she's right it could cost her life.
The case will play games with all who come near and force them to ask - how many of us are living a lie?
With taut pace and a twisted sense of humour, You Don't Know Me is a sexy thriller from someone who knows exactly what it means to live a double life.

Hugely impressive . . . Brooke writes the kind of women we want to see in crime fiction — Russel McLean
Brooke uses her professional know-how to detail shockingly gruesome scenes at the morgue in a mystery that begins with a decomposing body in a bag in a Hebridean loch but spins a web of real-life strands of political chicanery, greed and lies galore. — Peterborough Evening Telegraph on THE TURNING TIDE
A helter-skelter of a book — Guardian
Magnanti's writing is lively and entertaining. When her victims are laid out on that slab, her unspeakably detailed descriptions are good enough to put the wind up Patricia Cornwell. — The Times
