Someone Knows
Someone Knows | Lisa Scottoline
From the New York Times-bestselling author comes a pulse-pounding domestic thriller about a group of friends who have been bound for twenty years by a single secret--and will now be undone by it. Someone Knows is an emotional exploration of friendship and family, as well as a psychological exploration of guilt and memory. Twenty years ago, in an upscale suburb of Philadelphia, four teenagers spent a summer as closest friends: drinking, sharing secrets, testing boundaries. When a new boy looked to join them, they decided to pull a prank on him, convincing him to play Russian roulette as an initiation into their group. They secretly planned to leave the gun unloaded--but what happened next would change each of them forever. Now three of the four reunite for the first time since that horrible summer. The guilt--and the lingering question about who loaded the gun--drove them apart. But after one of the group apparently commits suicide with a gun, their old secrets come roaring back. One of them is going to figure out if the new suicide is what it seems, and if it connects to the events of that long-ago summer. Someone knows exactly what happened--but who? And how far will they go to keep their secrets buried?

Everyone in my house went to bed early which gave me enough quiet reading time to finish off this book. I enjoyed the suspense and raced through the last 50 pages. I‘m still wide awake and trying to decide what to pick up next.

A prank game of Russian Roulette goes terribly wrong.

Although I loved this book I felt the Author had to throw in one last twist at the end that I didn't think was necessary or maybe I felt it was rushed 🤔 Still pondering that one

I usually really enjoy this author‘s books. Full of suspense and twists. I also really enjoy the Philadelphia settings in her books since this is where I live! I liked the varying time lines and the characters. I definitely recommend this one!

Our choices, our actions (and even lack thereof) can affect other people in ways we can't fathom. There are times when you can see the trajectory of your decisions and other times when you will never know what the multiple ramifications may be. But someone else may know. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ See my full review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2712595417?book_show_action=false&from_rev...

With spoiled unlikeable teens growing into the same as adults how far would one go to hide the truth..

Someone Knows is a reminder that teenage secrets never die. It's a lesson Allie Garvey is forced to deal with at a childhood friends funeral. She relives pain everyday after a horrifying accident 20yrs earlier shattered her/her friends lives when they played a stupid prank as teens. I found this unputdownable, really enjoyed it! 4 ☆

JoScho I really like this one too! 5mo

Past and current time lines as well as multiple POVs-this book was great on audio. Twenty years ago something horrible happens and the kids have kept it a secret and dealt with it in their own way. Now someone else is dead and buried secrets have a way of resurfacing. Highly recommend 4.5🌟

This one did not do it for me too many multiple points of view with Rich spoiled kids. I really enjoy Lisa Scottoline but this one's a pass.

Tragedy scares us, hides us, more importantly it destroys. Especially when we think we're fine or we should be. Then twenty years pass (as in the book) and the only things that really change are your zip codes, friends, relationship status and time. And that tragedy you tried to forget didn't really evolve, it still haunts. I appreciated the set up of each characters family dynamics because it serviced that ending. And wow, I loved that ending😃

“Barb told Sharon something that Kyle (her son) had said last week: Mom, it‘s different for me than for you. We moved to where you grew up, so you‘re home. I‘m not. You drive around knowing all the roads. I don‘t. You went back to your maiden name, but it‘s your name. Gallagher is not my name. It never was.
“Sharon winced. “So what did you say?”
“I said, ‘Honey, you‘re right and I‘m sorry it turned out this way.‘ ”

This gets off to a slow start because there are so many characters. Some are irrelevant. The first half of the book takes place while the main characters are 15. Lots of cliches here. The second half picks up 20 years later and moves along at a typical thriller clip, which is entertaining. Then it ends. Pretty decent. It ends again. Eh, okay. And again. And now it‘s just stupid. Not one of Scottoline‘s best.

Bestselling author #LisaScottoline describes #SomeoneKnows as “an exploration of a modern family, and of how the ties that bind are meant to nurture us, but may also warp us. It‘s also about justice, exploring themes of guilt and innocence. At its heart is this issue — not guilty doesn‘t always mean innocent.” It's a sophisticated, intricately-plotted, thought-provoking thriller. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

"She knew the others would be there. A reunion of co-conspirators. She hadn‘t spoken to them after what had happened. They‘d had no contact since. They‘d run away from each other and what they‘d done. They‘d thought getting caught was the worst that could happen. Allie had learned otherwise. Not getting caught was worse. . . . The cool kids believed their secret was going to stay safe forever, but they were wrong. It was time for forever to end."

I received this ARC from the publisher. This was my first Lisa Scottoline novel and I looked forward to it as I was always curious about her books. Unfortunately, this book fell flat for me. It is a novel about five teenagers and a tragic incident that occurs when they were in high school. I didn‘t care for any of the characters and the story felt unbelievable.

I‘m enjoying spending my lunch reading Lisa Scottoline‘s new novel releasing in April. I have only read a couple of chapters but the story has already drawn me in.
