I’m not sure that’s a good thing”Spoilers aheadI felt like there were a lot of things wrong with the plotlinesFirst you have a detective who is portrayed as really caring about putting away the person who killed the two boys but he destroys evidence covers up for pimp turned PR guy Felix helps frame the lead investigator on the case to get him pulled off the case convinces witnesses to fit their statements and testimony to his story and pries a false confession out of the mentally handicapped Sidney ignoring all other leadsSecond when the new body is uncovered near where the boys were killed the reader almost has to believe that the murders are unrelated and years apart because how could the man’s body not be discovered at the same time as the boys Through the course of the book however we learn that the boys were killed because they saw the other crime taking place Why would the killer hide one body and leave the other two out in the open? And supposedly the killer hid the body so well that it wasn’t found for 20 years? And the man who was killed was reported missing two days later and no one uestioned whether there was a connection? There’s also the fact that Charlie was found alive and muttered the word “ghost” before he died in the detective’s arms The author tries to bring that reference full circle at the end of the book and it’s completely irrelevant in my opinion But you’re telling me that no one investigated that 20 years before?Third we find out that Cody actually knew all along what happened to his friends kept uiet all of these years and only came forward when the article came out because he wanted a publicity stunt to start a new businessusing the pimpPR guy as his PR guyFinally the actual killer is already dead and doesn’t even get his comeuppance What a letdownI just didn’t enjoy this at all And the book title should have just been “It’s Time to Tell” That’s the name of Cody’s podcast and it just seems fitting I didn’t find a reference to “I Know You Know” anywhereMy opinionskip this one
