"I'd never been scared of Oliver before that, but once you learn someone has such a big secret, you begin to wonder what else you might have missed. You begin to wonder if you know them at all."

As Charlie's friends scroll through the available men on a dating app, the last face she expects to see is that of her husband, Oliver. At first, she thinks there must surely be some reasonable explanation, but she can't stop wondering about it. When she digs deeper it turns out Charlie has bigger things than infidelity to worry about.

The Strangers We Know is an exciting psychological thriller by Pip Drysdale, the author of The Sunday Girl . Like The Sunday Girl, this book deals with an abusive relationship as well as murder and betrayal.

The plot is enthralling, although difficult to describe much without giving spoilers. I genuinely didn't know how things would work out overall, though I did sometimes find myself wanting to yell at Charlie for not realising that a certain character was not to be trusted. That being said, I did like Charlie and found myself cheering for her towards the end.

The Strangers We Know is a gripping read, recommended for fans of psychological thrillers.

Disclaimer: I was given a complimentary copy of this book by Simon and Schuster, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
