What if your childhood friend turned out to be a serial killer?

'Gripping, compelling' LAURA MARSHALL
'A thrilling, nostalgic, twisty read' CLAIRE ALLEN

The Killer You Know is a gripping, original story about toxic friendships and revenge - perfect for fans of Laura Marshall, Ruth Ware and C. J. Tudor.

************

I'll murder three people. And you'll know it was me . . .

Summer 1997. When Will jokes about becoming a serial killer, his friends just laugh it off. But Adeline can't help but feel there's something darker lurking behind his words.

Winter 2015: Years later, Adeline returns to Blythe for a reunion of the old gang - except Will doesn't show up. Reminiscing about old times, they look up the details of his supposed murder spree. But the mood soon changes when they discover two recent deaths that match.

As the group attempts to track Will down, they realise that he is playing a sinister game that harks back to one they used to play as kids. Only this time there are lives at stake . . .
