I Know My Name by C J Cooke
I Know My Name is a book about Lochlan’s Wife El who has vanished from the family home leaving behind a 12 week old baby and a toddler. Her money, car and passport are all in the house, with no signs of a break in or struggle. It seems that every clue the Police find there has a lie been told. Lochlan appears to not really know his wife and vice versa.
Miles away a unconscious woman washed up on the beach of a Greek island wearing a life jacket. She has cut her head and is covered in bruises but can not remember anything at first not even her name. This is El.
As the story unfolds it insinuates El was taken by her book group, of which, are holding her captive on this island.
Back in the UK the police have issued everything they can to do with a missing person. El’s Grandparents are staying with Lochlan to help out with the children but things prove very fractious. Lie and after Lie unfolds which only hinders the investigation more and more.
As the book unfolds it seems that her’ book group’ actually only exist in her head and she really is alone on an island with the people in her head holding her captive.
When I picked up this book I wasn’t too hopeful if I am honest. It was a book I added to my basket to make up free delivery.
The opening few pages were ok and readable but nothing to gripping so my sights were low to be honest. As the book went on it became more and more gripping and into a really good book and one (shock horror) I think I actually would read again.
The book is written well and is east to follow and understand. The constant twists and turns that follow along the main story line add more depth and understanding to each of the individual characters. Cooke has done well to make you feel like you actually really know the characters and are part of the investigation.
I would totally recommend this book to anyone.
The book can be purchased on Amazon for just £2.00. Buy it here.
