With the sound of the doorbell, the past she ran from catches up with her.
Baby on hip, Angela Myles hums as she lays out breakfast before the school run, when an unexpected knock on the door stops her in her tracks. But when she sees the familiar face through the peephole, she immediately tries to run with her kids out the back door. Because Angela knows her visitor, she knows why they’re here, and she’ll never give up her children.
Hours later, as the police talk softly to Angela’s terrified children, trying to unpick her last moments, they wonder what other secrets she was hiding from those around her. And then another woman goes missing. How many more will pay the price for Angela’s silence?
Absolutely unputdownable. A gripping, heart-pounding read for fans of Lisa Gardener, Rachel Abbott and Cara Hunter.
What She Knew was previously published as The Cold Room.

Thank you to Bookouture for my copy of this book via Netgalley and for letting me take part in this tour. I really enjoyed the first two books in this series and I was excited to see what happened next.

In the first two books, DI Raven certainly put herself at risk. In this book, she is still recovering from those events. She is such a strong character. She easily takes leadership, gives direction and helps her team where she can.

I love the relationship Eleanor has with Mo and Laurence too. They both compliment Eleanor in such different ways. Mo being her old mentor and Laurence being the rookie.

This book is very well written. Karen has managed to interweave many threads into one incredible story. The story is very well-paced and has some very interesting concepts. This is a very gripping and tense read. I hope we haven’t seen the end of DI Raven and her team

About Karen Long

Karen Long was born in Wolverhampton but has spent the last few years living in California. She worked as an English and Drama teacher for many years, before becoming a full-time writer.

She has written screenplays and articles, but primarily dedicates her time to writing crime fiction and observing wildlife. She loves to travel, which is a great source of inspiration; Toronto became the backdrop to the Eleanor Raven series of thrillers after Karen spent several months there.

A passionate conservationist and lover of the crow family in particular, she has rehabilitated and adopted ravens, crows, magpies and rooks, many of whom became integrated into family life, much to the distress of household members and soft furnishings. She now volunteers regularly at Los Angeles Oiled Bird Care Centre.
