What She Knew Book Summary

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

In her enthralling debut, Gilly Macmillan explores a mother’s search for her missing son, weaving a taut psychological thriller as gripping and skillful as The Girl on the Train and The Guilty One.

In a heartbeat, everything changes…

Rachel Jenner is walking in a Bristol park with her eight-year-old son, Ben, when he asks if he can run ahead. It’s an ordinary request on an ordinary Sunday afternoon, and Rachel has no reason to worry—until Ben vanishes.  

Police are called, search parties go out, and Rachel, already insecure after her recent divorce, feels herself coming undone. As hours and then days pass without a sign of Ben, everyone who knew him is called into question, from Rachel’s newly married ex-husband to her mother-of-the-year sister. Inevitably, media attention focuses on Rachel too, and the public’s attitude toward her begins to shift from sympathy to suspicion.

As she desperately pieces together the threadbare clues, Rachel realizes that nothing is quite as she imagined it to be, not even her own judgment. And the greatest dangers may lie not in the anonymous strangers of every parent’s nightmares, but behind the familiar smiles of those she trusts the most.

Where is Ben? The clock is ticking...

    Totally agree with Uprise 24. Took me a month to read this book. First time in 30 years I have looked at the end to see if I could trudge through the rest of the book to finish it.
  • Intriguing - can't put it down

    Author captivated me & kept me intrigued from Chapter 1. She made me feel what the characters were feeling and you could feel the terror in the mother from the words that were written.

    Loved the story- true page turner! I felt like the end was incomplete. I'd definitely recommend this book but just wanted to button up all the story lines to give it more stars.

    This book was very slow. I struggled to get to the end. I would not recommend this book
  • Well-written . . . and terribly depressing

    By Birdgirl2016

    This author creates characters who you care about - they matter to the reader from the very beginning. Telling the story through the first-person accounts of three different characters provides insight into each personality and describes vastly different perspectives on the same event. If you loved "Gone Girl," you will love this book. I should have absorbed the phrase in a review, noting "in the style of 'Gone Girl'" and avoided getting swallowed up by the unrelenting misery. I hated "Gone Girl" because of the lack of any redeeming outcome for any character at the conclusion. "What She Knew" provided the same sense of doom. Yes, the writing is effective, but be prepared for the feeling that there is no "winner" when you reach the last page.
  • Awesome book
