The Devil You Know by Terry Tyler


Book Description:

Every serial killer is someone’s friend, spouse, lover or child….

Young women are being murdered in the Lincolnshire town of Lyndford, where five people fear someone close to them might be the monster the police are searching for.

One of them is right.

Juliet sees an expert’s profile of the average serial killer and realises that her abusive husband, Paul, ticks all the boxes.

Maisie thinks her mum’s new boyfriend seems too good to be true. Is she the only person who can see through Gary’s friendly, sensitive façade?

Tamsin is besotted with her office crush, Jake. Then love turns to suspicion…

Steve is used to his childhood friend, Dan, being a loud mouthed Lothario with little respect for the truth. But is a new influence in his life leading him down a more sinister path?

Dorothy’s beloved son, Orlando, is keeping a secret from her—a chilling discovery forces her to confront her worst fears.

THE DEVIL YOU KNOW is a character-driven psychological drama that will keep you guessing until the very end.

My Thoughts:

The Devil You Know certainly makes for a very different and intriguing psychological thriller.

The story flicks between different characters who all think that someone they know is the one that is going around and killing young women. This was a totally knew one on me. Having it bared out in front of you and trying to guess which one it was, felt quite bizarre yet also thrilling.

The characters who are all suspects certainly have something about them that makes you believe that it could be them. There was no way I could choose for definite who it was as, as soon as I thought I knew, I would read another chapter and my choice would change again.

I have to say it is very cleverly done and very different to anything else I’ve read in this genre. It certainly makes it stand out from the rest.

A definite must read for fans of psychological thrillers/suspense.

My thanks to the author for a copy of the book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.

The Devil You Know is available to purchase from Amazon.

  1. Thanks so much, Sarah, what a lovely review to wake up to! I really appreciate your time, and am so pleased you liked it. By the way, the first person to read it (my proofreader) thought it was Dan most of the time but changed to Orlando at the last minute, and the next person (Mr Picky, who won’t let me publish until he’s checked for editing faux pas!), thought it was Paul all the way through.

    There was me thinking it was too obvious!!
