(131) I'd Know You Anywhere by Laura Lippman

I'd Know You Anywhere is not really what I would call a mystery novel. It is the novel that shows what happens after the mystery has been solved & the bad guy is in jail.

Liza Benedict & her family have just returned to the States after living in London for several years. There are many things to get used to again. And then she receives a letter from the man who held her hostage for six weeks when she was fifteen years old. Her world is rocked. He is asking to see her before he is executed for his crimes. Can she do it? Can she see the man who changed her world in such a profound way.

I'd Know You Anywhere is told in alternating chapter. The world Eliza is living and the year 1985, the year she was known as Elizabeth. You see what she went through and how it affects her now. The chapters are haunting and engrossing. Eliza is such a great character, someone that is easy to like, it is hard to read the chapters from 1985 & to see the hell that she went through.

I'd Know You Anywhere is a great dramatic read. A bit hard to read in some areas, but not overly graphic. An interesting read for those who love Mystery novels. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
