Descrizione

With the same page-turning suspense as The Girl on the Train and The Husband's Secret, New York Times bestselling author J.T. Ellison's No One Knows is a "riveting…skillfully plotted" (Publishers Weekly) thriller that questions if the narrator's husband really has returned from the dead-or if she's merely losing her mind.

Aubrey Hamilton has been mourning her missing husband for five years, despite being even while she was considered the prime suspect in his murder. But when he is officially declared dead, there are still more questions than answers: Why didn't Josh show up at his friend's bachelor party? Was he murdered, or did he run away? And who is the new, mysterious and strangely familiar figureman suddenly appearing in Aubrey's life? And has she finally lost her mind after years of loneliness and confusion?

No One Knows is an evocative mystery that explores the complex darkness within all of us, perfect for fans of Gillian Flynn, Liane Moriarty, and Paula Hawkins.

    Really good twists in this thriller... Some of the plot seems a bit contrived, but i loved the unreliable narrator
  • (3/5)
    I'd put this book at a 3.5/5 stars. I enjoyed the first half far more than the second half, which is not my style with books. I was shocked by the ending for more than one reason, and on top of that I wasn't too happy by it. There was also one part of the story that I did not feel got resolved entirely which was disappointing. Overall it was a good book.

    I noticed early into the book that other novels were commonly recommended (The Girl on the Train and The Husband's Secret), both of which I have considered reading and ended up deciding I probably wouldn't enjoy them that much. So, I cannot be too surprised that I didn't enjoy this book as much as I initially thought I would. However, if this genre/style is your thing, I definitely think this book is worth a read.

    I was listening to the CD version and curious to see what would happen----but the ending....yes, it all had to lead somewhere but the epilogue was just so disappointing---that was NOT what I expected or wanted to happen. Good for the author for the confusion? Perhaps...but I was sorry I had listened to get to that particular ending.

    First time reading J.T. Ellison... and I found the novel, a thriller, decent... good, but not great. The story is overly drawn out and uses the popular jumping from present to past for almost all the main characters, of which there are perhaps one or two too many! The main character should be more likeable than I found her to be, so hard to really root for her and follow her story. Basic premise: aspiring, good-man medical student disappears from a bachelor party and foul play is presumed... and in the present day, even though no body was ever found, he is declared legally dead.

    Aubrey's husband, Josh disappears from a bachelor party for his best friend. Aubrey is the primary suspect in his murder. It's been five long years and the state of Tennessee has declared him dead. Aubrey just wants him and their life back. We go back in time and see how their lives came together in spite of his mother, Dixie, who hates Aubrey and does everything she can to keep them apart. Then, a mysterious reporter comes into town asking questions and falling for Aubrey. There is a lot going on in this novel, some of it very unbelievable. If you can suspend your disbelief, then I think you might enjoy this book. I liked it but once again, felt like it was another Gone Girl wannabe...

    Aubrey is a school teacher whose husband, Josh, has been missing for five years. The state of Tennessee finally declares Josh dead. Aubrey cannot believe it. She feels deep down he is still alive and she cannot let go. Every single character in this novel is flawed and screwed up!! There is no hero or knight in shining armor. I think this is one of the main reasons this tale is so enthralling. Each character plays a unique part in the deception. The deceit and treachery running through this story really keep the reader riveted to the pages. Is he dead, is he alive, is he envolved in something??? The author did a great job keeping the outcome a secret. There were many times in the story I just KNEW I had it figured out. There were many scenerios floating around my thoughts. So, needless to say, the ending was a bit of a shocker. I had part of it figured out but not all. I am trying desperately not to give any spoilers away. So be prepared. A compelling tale indeed!! I received this novel from Simon and Schuster as an XOXpert

    I would like to thank Gallery Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book. This book reeled me in right from the start, and kept me reading at a steady pace, never quite sure who or what to believe. The story goes from present day, with Aubrey's husband dead for 5 years, back to 5 years in the past, where it slowly fills in the gaps of what happened that fateful day when her husband died. But clearly, from the start, the narration is just a touch unreliable...it is just unclear who is truly the one (or ones) not to be trusted, so I took a stance of not trusting anyone, as I typically do in these books. I feel it makes the process more fun that way. Except, along the way, I really did get to like Aubrey. She is a very likable character, and I couldn't help but come to appreciate her ordeal. I really can't say much about the story here without giving the storyline away...but I can say that I feel the writing in this book is superb. It kept me guessing right up until the end, and really moves at an even pace throughout the book, never rushing or moving slow at all. I found the book really enjoyable all the way through, and highly recommend it to fans of this type of suspenseful book. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own, and I am never monetarily compensated for my reviews.

    Mrs. Ellison is one of my favorite authors. Her Lt. Taylor Jackson series is great. Also, I like the books from the Dr. Samantha Owens series as well. While those books are more on the murder suspense side, with Mrs. Ellison's newest book, No One Knows, it is a psychological thriller. I like this different side of Mrs. Ellison. If you are a fan of psychological thrillers like Gone Girl then you will enjoy this book. I must admit that I did struggle with Aubrey. She got on my nerves as being more of a wilting flower than a strong woman. Although I would never want to be in her situation, I would hope that after five years that while I would still miss my husband dearly but that I would still be a strong woman. It was easy to put all of the puzzle pieces together in the beginning of the story, however I really like how the ending came together. I can't wait to read the next book by Mrs. Ellison. I hope that there are more books like this to come in the future.

    No One Knows by J. T. Ellison is a recommended mystery with an unreliable narrator.

    Aubrey Hamilton's husband, Josh, disappeared five years ago under mysterious circumstances and has now been officially declared legally dead by the state of Tennessee. Aubrey was the main suspect, but after she was acquitted, the investigation seemed to stall, leaving Aubrey with many questions and no answers about where Josh is and what happened to him. He disappeared the night they were attending friends' bachelor and bachelorette parties at a hotel - leaving few clues and a large amount of blood at their home. They were childhood sweethearts and adored each other, so perhaps that is why Aubrey holds out hope that he is alive and believes she has saw Josh from time to time over the years.

    Josh's mother, Daisy, always hated Aubrey. She is the one who pushed the state to declare him legally dead. Then Daisy is planning to fight Aubrey for the 5 million dollar insurance policy payoff. Aubrey says she doesn't want the money; she just wants Josh back.

    When Aubrey meets Chase Boden the day Josh is declared dead, something about Chase's walk and mannerisms makes her think of Josh and she falls for him. Aubrey has believed Josh is still alive for years, but perhaps it is time to let go of that hope and start anew. But, when new information comes to light about Josh, Aubrey doesn't know what or who to believe.

    Ellison tells the story from multiple points of view and different time periods in the characters' lives, jumping back and forth from the present day to some point in the past. As the novel progresses, it becomes clear that Aubrey is not a reliable narrator and the truth lies in the clues she provides.

    The writing is very good and the character of Aubrey is well developed. All of the flashbacks were, perhaps not necessary and made sections of the novel seem overly long. The story drew me in at the opening, but then I'll have to admit that I had several niggling questions and doubts that kept creeping in about the plot. To be honest, I figured out or suspected the plot twists ahead of time and will admit to some eye rolling over the convenience of some of the details and coincidences.

    These doubts were set in place early on for me. Chase's appearance and Aubrey's immediate attachment to him was too convenient and I found it hard to believe that a woman who is pining away for her husband would suddenly jump into bed, drunk or not, with a stranger on the day her beloved missing husband is declared legally dead. Future events make this even less likely. Then there were times I'd be saying to myself, "Wait, didn't she say xyz before and now it's abc." Sure Aubrey's an unreliable narrator, but I still want firm details while you make the context fluid for your unreliable narrator.

    I did read the novel to the end, though, which counts for something. If you just want to read a well written suspense novel and not follow facts or details too closely, this will fit the bill.

    This was a really good book. It will keep you guessing all the way to the end. If you have not read the book you need to.

    Oh, I so wanted to love this book. I started to. I was falling deep into it, curious, fascinated, and then... Well, the 'and then' aspect is difficult to talk about without spoilers, but I will do my best.First, I want to say that I do love Ellison's writing style. She puts me in the story, with the characters, and lets me feel what they're feeling. The concept here is compelling and full of possibilities. But I am a detail person. I want the pieces to fit, to make sense. I have to believe it can happen. And, with this story, the details didn't work.The story is told from Aubrey's perspective. I want to like her. I want to trust her. I couldn't and I didn't. She alludes to a problematic past, trouble she's gotten into, things she did. Beneath the grieving, maybe-widow she shows us, she is whispering that we shouldn't take her at face value. That maybe she isn't such a nice person, after all. The problem, for me, isn't so much with the questionable narrator, but with the story's execution. The details. My short explanations follow, without spoilers to fully back up my reasons:The police immediately suspected Aubrey during the initial police investigation of Josh's disappearance. Yet, once that falls flat, the investigation appears to go nowhere else. Josh's background, his life, his friends, his associates, are never explored by detectives. Had this been done, as it should and would have been, the truth would have been uncovered rather than the case going unsolved. The answer was just too easy, too obvious.Chase: His whole character was too convenient, from his appearance at exactly the right moment, to the instant attraction, to, well, all of it. The flashbacks: They are constant. The story is told in back-and-forth time, disordered, with chapters from Aubrey's youth, chapters from Josh's youth, chapters from Aubrey and Josh's marriage, etc. Maybe this is a pet peeve of mine. It probably is. But I get annoyed when this technique is relied upon as a constant throughout a story, in order to make readers understand the characters. I don't need to see the character acting out as a teen, falling in love as a teen, fighting with his mother as a teen, and on it goes. I don't need or want constant chapter flashbacks. With rare exceptions, I want to be in the moment, in the story that is happening. Finally, what had me rolling my eyes and muttering, is the string of unrealistic coincidences, combined with the revelation at the end, which isn't much of a surprise, but still made me question all that I'd read.And, so, this story requires that you not look too hard at the details. If you're able to do that, then the story does offer an intriguing look at human nature.*I was provided with an advance ebook copy by the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest opinion.*

    After just a few pages in, I was glued to this book. The twists and turns of the disappearance of Aubrey's husband, as well as his domineering mother had me excited for what was to come. Unfortunately, the unlikely coincidences that continued to occur as Aubrey tried to move on with her life just didn't work for me. I felt like it was too far-fetched, although there really was some good foreshadowing. The end peeked my interest as there were a few well written action scenes. I didn't much care for Aubrey's character through much of the book, I felt she was a bit too despondent and self-pitying. Perhaps I just prefer stronger protagonists. Would certainly read something else by this author, even though this particular novel didn't quite fulfill my expectations.

    OK, but predictable. Should not be described as a thriller.
  • (5/5)
    The twist kept me really involved. As soon as I had it figured out there was another twist. It held my interest and even made me back up more then once to make sure I got it right.

    Just okay. I think the “twist” at the end was contrived just to say the book ended with a twist. It just didn’t make sense. They had me up the last 20 minutes and then blew it ....

    Good book to read. Keeps you guessing and wondering. The ending confused me . I wish they would have explained it some.
  • (1/5)
    I have listened to some books I didn’t like but this is the first one I think was a complete waste of credit. There are so many problems with it, I think if it were just one it could be overlooked but there are too many:
    1. The plot is so fantastical, it is just too over the top.
    2. The characters don’t seem like real people. They don’t act in ways people actually act, their personalities seem to change throughout.
    3. The ending makes no sense.
    4. A not-30-yet person in 2016 hates cell phones? Has she met a millennial? Also there’s a working payphone in a restaurant? No, sorry.
    5. I could’ve done without the graphic sex scenes. I don’t read bodice-rippers and I like to listen to scribd working around the house. Let me tell you, it’s somewhat mortifying when your 17 year old walks into the room and the book you’re listening to has “cock” every other word. Unnecessary.

    I actually looked it up hoping this was the author’s first book. NY times bestselling author?! Are you kidding? This is unfairly compared to Gone Girl, as so many books are, but throwing in a twist ending that makes no sense with little to no foreshadowing is just bad writing. The reader has to be able to look back and see that they should’ve seen it coming, and that’s not the case in this book. Not to mention the 1950s noir style home for the criminally insane that appears at the end, wow do your research please! We don’t go around shooting people up with needles full of medication anymore.

    Nothing about this book is even slightly realistic. Truly awful, don’t waste your credit. Had it been a scribd select I would’ve just given up. I should have known that a 4 minute preview was a bad sign.

    J.T. Ellison wrote one of my favorite thriller/mysteries ever. I knew I wanted to start reading some of her back work and was very excited to jump into No One Knows.

    This one picked up really quickly! The author has a great way of pulling you into her stories and never letting go. Just when you think you know what is going to happen, something new will be added to the equation. This was no exception. There was so much going on that I was never bored. I flew through this one and did not want to put it down.

    This story does jump point of views and time frames. I am not usually a fan of this, but it all worked together for me on this one.

    I was a little disappointed with some aspects of the story though. This ended with too many holes in the story. There was not really a wrap up around Aubrey and her mother in law. I figured the reason Daisy hated her so much was due to her being in foster care as a child. I feel Daisy was projecting her feelings around what happened when she was in her twenties (I do not want to post a spoiler).

    There was also not enough wrap around to why and how Chase was pulled into the story either. I get where he comes in, but I just did not think there was enough to how he was pulled into talking to Josh.

    That ending though! I did not see the Five Years before coming at all! I can see it now, but did not see it as I was reading. I loved this twist!

    Overall, I still enjoyed this one but wanted a little more of some parts and less of others. It was still addicting and had my mouth dropping at times. I definitely recommend giving it a try.

    ** spoiler alert ** The premise was intriguing and initially I was drawn in, but once Aubrey (thought that was a boy's name?) started to pursue the idea that Josh might still be alive, this novel stopped working for me. There were just too many utterly unlikely coincidences: that Chase should fall in love with Aubrey, that he should turn out to be Daisy's son...? I skimmed most of the last two-thirds for plot only as I wasn't really invested in any of the characters, although I thought Daisy was probably the best drawn.The flashbacks to the past and the constant references to Aubrey's arrests and trouble with the police were, I suppose intended to alert us to the fact that she was not just a saintly teacher, but they served to make me feel I couldn't get to grips with her character; she didn't make internal sense. The ending, which demonstrated just how much she had been concealing, failed to make me revisit this confusion and say, "Oh, I see now": it just made me feel tricked by the author. The last few chapters, featuring the extended shoot out scene and Josh explaining what he had been up to for the last five years, got totally ridiculous and suddenly we were in a different sort of story altogether. There were so many twists at the very ending that I lost what little will to live I still possessed.Very disappointing.

    Josh and Aubrey Hamilton had a great marriage and a seemingly wonderful life, until her husband disappeared five years ago. Josh vanishes into thin air - as the couple head into a bachelor/bachelorette party - and is never seen or heard from ago. When Josh's mom finally has him declared dead, Aubrey is devastated. How will she move on without Josh? Then there's the matter of the $5M life insurance policy he put into place shortly before his death. His mom plans to fight her for it, but Aubrey doesn't care. She just wants Josh back. So much she imagines she sees him around the places they loved so much. Or is she just imagining this?

    This was an interesting and well-written thriller. I was hooked from the beginning. You rarely read a book where the husband disappears, but you hear the story from the wife's perspective, so that was a nice change of pace. The story flips back and forth in time, so we can unravel bits and pieces of it ourselves, but we mainly hear from Aubrey's perspective, which is sort of nice.

    The novel is suspenseful and keeps you guessing. Aubrey is a complicated character (as is Josh, really) and Ellison does a good job explaining their childhoods and how they became the people they are. There's a supporting cast of characters who are also pretty well-developed. To me, the ending was a little sudden, but still well-done. Even better, it pretty much surprised me, which isn't always easy to do.

    I vacillated on this a bit, but overall 4 stars - it's a thrilling and enjoyable novel. (Even if I did constantly think of the baseball player every time I read the name Josh Hamilton!)

    (Note: I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley in return for an unbiased review.)

    In No One Knows by J.T. Ellison, Aubrey Hamilton must learn how to go on living after the mysterious disappearance and presumed death of her husband, Josh. We meet Aubrey the day Josh is declared legally dead by the state of Tennessee. Everyone thinks this should bring closure to her life, but Aubrey doesn’t want to move on. She wants Josh back, along with their happy marriage. Even though Aubrey was found not guilty of his murder, she knows he can't still be alive or he would have come to her rescue. Aubrey is obsessed with finding out what happened to Josh and even rushes up to strangers who remind her of him. This is how she meets Chase Boden, a reporter from out of town who resembles Josh so much Aubrey initially believes Chase is Josh.

     

    The mystery of Josh’s disappearance is recounted by multiple characters in multiple time frames but they are short chapters. We move back and forth between adult Aubrey and Josh to a time when they were kids. There are even chapters from Josh and his mother, Daisy's, point of view. I enjoyed the way the story was told and felt it added to the intrigue and mystery of what happened to Josh.

     

    There are lots of twists and turns in this excellent psychological thriller and it was definitely a page turner. I haven't read many books by J. T. Ellison, but I'm definitely going to look for some others.

    Well here’s another writer I never need to read any more of. My notes from reading -Josh & Aubrey are cutesy/drippyChapters are annoyingly shortReminds me of a Harlan Coben novel - missing person, fraught circumstances, old secretsDon’t spouses have to sign off on any beneficiary not themselves?After the insta-fucking she puts on his shirt. For real? UghHis initial + her initials = TLA confuses her? Whatta dope.Childhood flashbacks are annoying and unnecessaryOk, enough with perfect JoshOk, ok, she has naturally curly hair already!He disguises his walk?!?

    This author, J T Ellison, is an amazing writer! She is very talented and she kept me glued to the pages in this book, No One Knows, and while having to do other things around the house, in the back of my mind, all I wanted to do was read this book when I was stuck having to do them! I am now addicted to her wonderful and enjoyable writing. That says a lot about an author when I am so into her book that it and that’s all I want to do is read her book! JT Ellison is a new author for me, and I am now addicted to her writing already with this very first book I’ve read by her! First off, I want to thank the publisher, Gallery Books, the author, JT Ellison, and NetGalley now, immediately for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a review of this book! Thank you!Out of ALL the books out there that have recently been written with this somewhat same theme where a spouse disappears, and the books that I have read with this theme, I have to admit this book was my favorite. It was one of the best out of ALL of the books that have been written so far, or at least in my opinion! However, I did not yet read The Girl on the Train. I cannot imagine that book outdoing this book, but then again, look at how many weeks (almost an entire YEAR) that book stayed on the New York Times Bestseller list - a LONG time! So what happened in this book? Is it worth reading this book if you read all the others? YES, YES, YES!!! Oh my gosh, yes! Grab this book on your way home from work or wherever you are going home from! I PROMISE you are going to LOVE it!The plot in this book was excellent, and it changed wonderfully with the twists and the turns, and there was even a ridiculous lawsuit that kept us reading, and the worst villain of all, the one we can’t believe acts the way she does is the mother-in-law, Daisy! HOW old is she? Three? She is the one who goes to the court THE DAY Aubrey’s husband, Josh, can be pronounced as being dead and has it done so. Aubrey is beside herself. She does NOT believe he is dead. She just has this gut feeling Josh is alive even if he has been gone/missing for the last five years. Aubrey even meets a man in a BAR who completely reminds her of Josh and she goes home with him and sleeps with him. EVERYTHING about him reminds her of him! Everything!So why does Daisy feel she can proclaim Josh legally dead when she is ONLY his mother, and he is a GROWN MARRIED MAN, BELONGING TO ANOTHER WOMAN NOW? How can she possibly have a court allow him to be declared dead? What’s in this for her and how will it benefit her? All this did was bring back ALL of the raw, unhealed emotions that Aubrey had gone through every day for most of these last five years. Well, it’s not her in particular, but her other daughter to contest the five million dollar life insurance policy. Aubrey had to have been keeping the payments going for those benefits to remain active, and if any of you pay for life insurance on your own, the premium for $5 MILLION dollars is outrageous! I don’t even know if Aubrey could afford that amount of money on her own? What a messed up family! I wouldn’t even call them family! They weren’t even there to help Aubrey get through her dark days!Today is the 5-year anniversary of Josh's death. There is an envelope taped to the door with paperwork in it from the courts pronouncing Josh as being dead. We start to learn that Chase is/was not in Aubrey’s life by accident. He’s not entirely who he claimed he was to her, or, at the beginning of their meeting (which would have been planned) he felt something for her and couldn’t do what he wanted to. He confesses this to Aubrey and she is so angry at him but still, he is so much like Josh. What is it with this man?Since the truth did come out about Chase and what he ‘was’ after but changed his mind about doing, that set things into motion to find out if the real Josh was alive after all. Chase could use his skills to try to find out. After this point, I don’t want to say too much more about the book so I don’t give away spoilers because I could do that very easily here, so the rest is for you to read and enjoy!This book is a darker and twisty thriller with CRAZY characters, and you all know how much I LOVE disappearing into these! Yes, in this book the wife’s husband disappears, and we all think of Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, and many, many others that seem to be written lately. You may be thinking one of two things, or both. Haven’t we had enough of these books? No, this one is different. Do I want to read this book? YES!! All books are different, and this is the absolute JOY of reading and writing reviews about them, too! Enjoy!

    Book Description In an obsessive mystery as thrilling as The Girl on the Train and The Husband’s Secret, New York Times bestselling author J.T. Ellison will make you question every twist in her page-turning novel—and wonder which of her vividly drawn characters you should trust. The day Aubrey Hamilton’s husband is declared dead by the state of Tennessee should bring closure so she can move on with her life. But Aubrey doesn’t want to move on; she wants Josh back. It’s been five years since he disappeared, since their blissfully happy marriage—they were happy, weren’t they?—screeched to a halt and Aubrey became the prime suspect in his disappearance. Five years of emptiness, solitude, loneliness, questions. Why didn’t Josh show up at his friend’s bachelor party? Was he murdered? Did he run away? And now, all this time later, who is the mysterious yet strangely familiar figure suddenly haunting her new life? In No One Knows, the New York Times bestselling coauthor of the Nicholas Drummond series expertly peels back the layers of a complex woman who is hiding dark secrets beneath her unassuming exterior. This masterful thriller for fans of Gillian Flynn, Liane Moriarty, and Paula Hawkins will pull readers into a you’ll-never-guess merry-go-round of danger and deception. Round and round and round it goes, where it stops…no one knows.

    My Review I've read Gone Girl, The Husband's Secret and The Girl on the Train but I think Ellison's book, No One Knows, definitely tops them all. The characters are well-drawn but as in all complex mystery plots, some of them are not like what they seem like. It is a page turner with lots of twists and turns. Just when you think you have figured things out another twist comes and keeps you spinning until the very last page. This was my first book by Ellison but it won't be my last. I highly recommend this novel to those who enjoy a mystery thriller with a totally surprise ending.
