**NOW A MAJOR BBC SERIES** Adapted for the screen by the team behind BBC1’s blockbuster submarine thriller Vigil ‘A daring concept executed to perfection’ LEE CHILD It’s easy to judge between right and wrong – isn’t it? An unnamed defendant stands accused of murder. The evidence is overwhelming. Just before the Closing Speeches, the young man sacks his lawyer, and decides to give his own defence speech. It is about the woman he loves, who got into terrible trouble. It’s about how he risked everything to save her. He tells us that his barrister told him to leave some things out. Sometimes, the truth can be too difficult to explain, or believe. As he talks us through the eight pieces of evidence against him, his life is in our hands. We, the reader – member of the jury – must keep an open mind till we hear the end of his story. He swears he’s innocent. But in the end, all that matters is this: do you believe him? ***See what bestselling authors and critics are saying about You Don’t Know Me, chosen for the Radio 2 Book Club and the Telegraph’s Best Crime Novels of the Year*** ‘Searing and heart-breaking, genre-bending . . . triumphantly reconfigures the traditional whodunnit into something remarkable’ Ruth Ware ‘Bold and original . . . a thrilling new voice in crime fiction’ Tim Weaver ‘A startlingly confident and deft debut’ Tana French ‘A dazzling debut – authentic, funny, sad, sympathetic.
