Description

In the vein of Gillian Flynn's Sharp Objects and A. S. A. Harrison's The Silent Wife, The Devil
You Know
is a thrilling debut about a rookie reporter whose memories of the
murder of her childhood best friend bring danger—and a stalker—right to her
doorstep.

The year is 1993. Rookie crime-beat reporter Evie Jones is
haunted by the unsolved murder of her best friend Lianne Gagnon, who was killed
in 1982, back when both girls were eleven. The suspected killer, a repeat
offender named Robert Cameron, was never arrested, leaving Lianne's case cold.

Now twenty-one and living alone for the first time, Evie is
obsessively drawn to finding out what really happened to Lianne. She leans on
another childhood friend, David Patton, for help—but every clue they uncover
seems to lead to an unimaginable conclusion. As she gets closer and closer to
the truth, Evie becomes convinced that the killer is still at large—and that
he's coming back for her.

From critically acclaimed author Elisabeth de Mariaffi comes
a spine-tingling debut about secrets long buried and obsession that cannot be
controlled.

        October 27, 2014
        Set in and around Toronto in 1993, Canadian author de Mariaffi’s artful first novel chronicles the efforts of journalist Evie Jones to track down the man who murdered a friend of hers, 11-year-old Lianne Gagnon, in 1982. Robert Nelson Cameron was identified as a suspect but never caught. Jones researches the killer through old newspaper articles using the nascent Internet, aided by her cautiously flirtatious friend, David Patton. Since Lianne’s death, Evie has suffered from some form of post-traumatic stress; the man she often sees at her apartment window could be real or the product of an overheated imagination. When Evie points out to her mother, Annie, that women read more true crime than men, Annie replies the reason is not entertainment but survival: “It’s so we learn how to get away.” Hooked readers will silently implore Evie to refrain from entering a basement or a cabin in the woods in pursuit of a story—and a killer. Agent: Samantha Haywood, Transatlantic Literary Agency (Canada).

        Evie Jones is a 21-year-old reporter in Toronto who is still traumatized by the unsolved abduction and murder of her best friend Lianne when they both were 11. She lives in constant fear that Lianne's killer may be stalking her, a fear that is compounded by the man she sees looking in her apartment window at night. Determined to discover who killed Lianne, Evie follows a trail that involves her friend David's father and even her mother's early life. De Mariaffi (How To Get Along with Women) sets this psychological thriller in 1993 and includes real cases of girls tortured and murdered by serial killer Paul Bernardo. While de Mariaffi succeeds in capturing the frightened mood of Toronto during the time the "Scarborough rapist" was at large, she prolongs her story with too many confusing twists and turns. Reader Audi Arndt portrays Evie's youthful obstinacy in a voice sounding like a rebellious teenager. VERDICT Despite these flaws, fans of thrillers and those familiar with Toronto and its suburbs should enjoy the book. ["De Mariaffi...expertly builds suspense throughout this...debut novel," read the review of the Touchstone hc, LJ 12/14.]--Nancy R. Ives, SUNY Geneseo

        De Mariaffi’s debut thriller, set in and around 1993 Toronto, begins as Evie Jones, a newbie reporter at the Free Press, decides to investigate the event that’s traumatized her for the past decade: the unsolved murder of her best friend Lianne Gagnon, who was 11 years old at the time. Robert Nelson Cameron was identified as a
        suspect but wasn’t caught. Reader Arndt’s soft, youthful voice, a perfect match for Evie, catches each of the
        character’s shifting moods—from her determination to uncover the facts of the murder, to self-doubt, to an almost unbelievable fearlessness in courting danger. Arndt makes no particular effort to alter her voice to fit the other characters, but she does manage to give them the proper emotions—such as Evie’s sensible friend David, who isn’t entirely happy with their platonic relationship, her comforting and understanding parents, and her hard-boiled editor. Arndt is also extremely effective in pacing the suspenseful sequences, particularly the final confrontation between Evie and the man she believes to be Lianne’s killer. An S&S/Touchstone hardcover.
