The plot of Don’t I Know You? seems Law & Order-ready: A 12-year-old boy discovers his dead mother in their NYC apartment; clues are gathered, leads pursued, yet the killer roams free. Karen Shepard’s investigation unfolds obliquely — jumping forward 16 months, then more than a decade, then flashing back to four years before the murder — concentrating on seemingly extraneous characters. Her cunningly crafted jigsaw puzzle is colored by vibrant prose (”The sky was the color of sour milk. The backs of his thighs were sweating”) and capped by a you’ll-never-guess conclusion that’s not the least bit gimmicky. You might want to read it all over again just to follow Shepard’s beautifully subtle tracks.

Review by JULIA SCHEERES

Published: June 18, 2006

HOW well do you really know the person closest to you? If you could peer into your lover’s mind, would you be overwhelmed by what you saw — adulterous thoughts, repressed urges, homicidal fantasies? Karen Shepard’s darkly gaming tantalizing third novel suggests the answer would be a resounding yes.

Safely ensconced in their daily lives, the characters in “Don’t I Know You?” cling desperately to comfortable, superficial images of their loved ones, no matter how much those images run counter to the facts. It’s disturbing enough to suspect these people might be liars and cheats, but what if they’re rapists or even killers? gamers How easy is it to deny that someone you depend on and care for may have committed a violent crime?
