Karen Perry is the pen name of crime writing duo Paul Perry and Karen Gillece who both live in Ireland. Can You Keep A Secret? is their latest novel and follows Girl Unknown, Only We Know and The Boy That Never Was which was selected for the Simon Mayo Radio 2 book club. All three were Sunday Times bestsellers.Review:
Only We Know builds handsomely on the promise of The Boy That Never Was (2014), plausibly and hauntingly exploring the extent to which guilt, shame and secrecy can shape, define and eventually destroy lives * Declan Burke, The Irish Times * The power of Only We Know lies in the slow illumination of how, under their flimsy cloaks of adulthood, Katie and Nick and Luke are still the traumatised children of a long-ago day by a river, frozen in time by one event. It raises fascinating questions about who we are at heart, about the degree to which damage and guilt can shape our natures, and about whether - and how - we can be redeemed * Tana French * This is an intense and subtle story with some wonderfully poetic passages and a character driven plot which becomes more compelling as the sense of momentum gathers and the true version of events is slowly revealed. Gripping stuff * Sunday Mirror * Don't be surprised if you devour ONLY WE KNOW in one sitting * crimefictionlovers.com * The book is beautifully written, with just the right balance of teasing the reader with clues and hitting them with revelations * Best Crime Fiction of 2015, The Telegraph *
