Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of You Don't Know Me by Imran Mahmood, read by Adam Deacon.
An unnamed defendant stands accused of murder. Just before the Closing Speeches, the young man sacks his lawyer, and decides to give his own defence speech. He tells us that his barrister told him to leave some things out. Sometimes, the truth can be too difficult to explain, or believe. But he thinks that if he's going to go down for life, he might as well go down telling the truth.
There are eight pieces of evidence against him. As he talks us through them one by one, 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. His defence raises many questions...but at the end of the speeches, only one matters: Did he do it?

Audible Editor Reviews

"I opened this book to a random page, read five lines - and finished it at three that morning. It's the voice that does it: edgy, conflicted, desperately urgent, the voice of a young man who's both too smart and (if you believe him) not quite smart enough for the inexorable spiral of events into which he's dragged. This is a startlingly confident and deft debut." (Tana French, internationally best-selling author.)

It's interesting

This first chapter makes me very curious for the rest of the story.

Even though English is not my first language, or maybe because of it, I did not find the accent annoying at all. To me it made the story from a first person perspective more believable.

first chapter - so far a winner

might take me a while to get used to the narrator's voice but he reads very well and with conviction. I'm very curious as to how it will end
