Bestselling and award-winning author Lisa Scottoline reaches new heights with this riveting novel about how a single decision can undo a family, how our past can derail our present, and how not guilty doesn’t always mean innocent.

Allie Garvey is heading home to the funeral of a childhood friend. Allie is not only grief-stricken, she’s full of dread. Because going home means seeing the other two people with whom she shares an unbearable secret.

Twenty years earlier, an horrific incident shattered the lives of five teenagers, including Allie. Drinking and partying in the woods, they played a dangerous prank that went tragically wrong, turning deadly. The teenagers kept what happened a secret, believing that getting caught would be the worst thing that could happen. But time has taught Allie otherwise. Not getting caught was far worse.

Allie has been haunted for two decades by what she and the others did, and by the fact that she never told a soul. The dark secret has eaten away at her, distancing her from everyone she loves, including her husband. Because she wasn’t punished by the law, Allie has punished herself, and it’s a life sentence.

Now, Allie stands on the precipice of losing everything. She’s ready for a reckoning, determined to learn how the prank went so horribly wrong. She digs to unearth the truth, but reaches a shocking conclusion that she never saw coming–and neither will the reader.

A deeply emotional examination of family, marriage, and the true nature of justice, Someone Knows is Lisa Scottoline’s most powerful novel to date. Startling, page-turning, and with an ending that’s impossible to forget, this is a tour de force by a beloved author at the top of her game.

WHAT'S NEXT

Sneak Peek into Lisa’s Next Book Project

Eternal will be Lisa’s first historical novel, which will be set in Italy during the fascist reign of Mussolini.

I became an author because of Philip Roth, his seminar and his books, especially his survey of the harrowing first-person accounts of the Holocaust. Roth admired very much the books of Primo Levi, notably his Survival in Auschwitz, which haunted me for decades to follow. I knew that someday I would write about the Holocaust in Italy and have been researching and studying it since then.

Made me think of things I did when I was young!!...by the way, do you have something on your right hand...??

I am loving "Someone Knows". Getting to know the characters! Wish I could tell them to THINK! So many crazy decisions, thank God we lived through them. Hope to see you soon!

I am just finishing this book. And yes, it made me think about some of the boneheaded things i did as a teenager. But none of them came back to haunt me 20 years later. I love this book .

BEST of the BEST♥️

Loved it!

I’m really enjoying these video clips! Sorry I had to miss your visit to Richmond, but it was my son’s birthday. Next time!

Yep, we did do some dumb things as kids!

I just finished it and it was so good!!

Wow thankyou. It made me think too.

Reading it right now. Luckily. most of the stupid things we did in our youth don't come back on us like this!!

All I can say is I’m glad as hell I didn’t grow up in the transparent and instantaneous world of social media.
