Allmänna fakta



In my opinion, 'What Have You Done' is a good but not great book. I chose it for my Kindle Unlimited selection because I wanted to try a thriller by someone I haven’t heard of and I wasn't disappointed. Farrell's third person writing is face paced, making it a quick read. I liked the characters and found them to be realistic. I also thought the plot was interesting. Farrell did a reasonably good job of keeping the reader guessing about the perpetrator. I guessed the right person early on, but as the book unfolded, I was sure I was wrong.
I think that readers interested in this genre ought to enjoy this book!

I really enjoyed this story.... although it did take a few chapters to really understand what was happening. This is often the case when there are multiple timelines. By the middle of the book, or in my case, the audio, the reader/listener, has no problem understanding what was happening, and why. Laura is our protagonist. I loved her and I hated her, all at the same time. I’m pretty sure that was exactly what the author intended from the beginning. Some of the twists and turns are unanticipated and diffidently a surprise but they kept me staying with the book and guessing to the very end. This was my first Matthew Farrell book, but it certainly won’t be my last. If you love a good nail-biting psychological thriller, that’ll keep you engaged and guessing, then you may want to consider trying this one.… (mer)

I know Everything (Adler and Dwyer book # 0.75) by Matthew Ferrell
Police Investigator Susan Adler gets a case that seems open and close until the medical examiner deems it a murder not accidental. I am always up for a good psychological thriller especially one where I think I have it figured out, yet the author’s writing is so good that it leaves that reasonable doubt to keep you reading. This book did that and just when I thought I had it figured out but couldn’t figure out the why, how and even when, the author throws in plot twists that had me saying “Whoa wait, what the fuck”. When I tell you my anxiety was up reading this book, I am not even over exaggerating, lol. 5 out 5-star rating as far as I am concerned.
Highly recommend if you like suspense and psychological thriller. You can find this book in your local library and if you have kindle unlimited it is free to read.

Well, there you go. You kill for the ones you love. Always.
Family was a bond that could not be broken. Family was everything.
This book right here has caused me severe distress in all the right ways. I did not want to put this one down because it kept such a level of suspense going from beginning until the end. I honestly think this is the first time I've read a psychological thriller, I usually just read them and this one did not disappoint. Farrell is very descriptive with his words and is the master of just enough information. Each time you think you have it figured out, you are wrong.
The novel begins with our main character Laura waking up from a nap in her car (one which it turns out is fueled by Xanax, Zoloft and alcohol) to a phone ringing. The only problem? It's not her phone. She answers the FaceTime call and is met by the voice of her daughter, Nelle, saying "they took me." The kidnappers are convinced that Laura is someone named Betty and they want revenge for some secret transgression Betty committed. She has two instructions drive to the location provided and never turn off the phone.
The events that unfold in this page turning book explore the lengths one will go in order to protect family. Farrell tells the story from different points of view which only adds to the suspense of the novel and helps to make it feel well-rounded. My favorite part was the jump in timeline to events from the past, with little breadcrumbs connecting them. You really have to be paying attention to this book or you are bound to miss something. It does leave you thinking: how far would you go for those you love?
