All her life Ellie Enderlin had been known as Lila’s sister. Then one day, without warning, the shape of their family changed forever. Twenty years ago, Lila, a top math student at Stanford, was murdered in a crime that was never solved. In the aftermath of her sister’s death, Ellie entrusted her most intimate feelings to a man who turned the story into a bestselling true crime book—a book that both devastated her family and identified one of Lila’s professors as the killer.

Decades later, two Americans meet in a remote village in Nicaragua. Ellie is now a professional coffee buyer, an inveterate traveler incapable of trust. Peter is a ruined academic. Their meeting is not by chance. As rain beats down on the steaming rooftops of the village, Peter leaves Ellie with a gift—the notebook that Lila carried everywhere, a piece of evidence not found with her body. Stunned, Ellie returns home to San Francisco to explore the mysteries of Lila’s notebook, filled with mathematical equations, and begin a search that has been waiting for her for two decades. It will lead her to a hundred-year-old mathematical puzzle, to a lover no one knew Lila had, to the motives and fate of the man who profited from their family’s anguish—and to the deepest secrets even sisters keep from each other. As she connects with people whose lives unknowingly swirled around her own, Ellie will confront a series of startling revelations—from the eloquent truths of numbers to confessions of love, pain, and loss.

A novel about the stories and lies that strangers, lovers, and families tell—and the secrets we keep even from ourselves—Michelle Richmond’s novel is a work of astonishing depth and beauty, at once heartbreaking, provocative, and impossible to put down.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Michelle Richmond never strikes a false note in No One You Know…It’s an intelligent, emotionally convincing tale about a family tragedy and the process of storytelling.”

    Boston Globe

  • “Richmond sets out to create not a straight-up thriller, but a novel that explores love, family, work, guilt, and the responsibility of the writer to his or her subject, all within the framework of a murder mystery.”

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • “As complex and beautiful as a mathematical proof, this gripping, thought-provoking novel will keep you thinking long after the last page has been turned.”

    Family Circle

  • “Carrington MacDuffie reflects the character of Ellie as she ages and matures…In her characterizations MacDuffie contrasts Ellie’s steady energy with the self-absorbed arrogance of Thorpe.

    " Good twist and original idea. I kind of liked how this book was not what you would expect. Not a book that I'd rush out to share with others, but it was ok. If you run across it, then give it a go, but don't go out of your way to find it. "

    " I wan't sure about this book when i started it but the story really sucked me in . I HAD to know what happened. I am glad she ended the book with some closure but not in the direction I thought it would go. Some of her writing was a little intense/academic at times and I never understood some of the math concepts. "

    " Picked this book up off the "buy one/get one half off" table at Borders just before a plane trip thinking it was a puffy "sisters" novel that would kill some time on a cross country trip and was more than estatic to find it was an extremely well-written fully fleshed-out novel with well-rounded, interesting, deep (even flawed) characters and an (at the risk of being cliche) "gripping" *whodunit* mystery to boot -- the solution of which was more than satisfying. (<--Run on? Sorry.) As a former SF resident I probably enjoyed it more than most and as a former United Artists employee the mention of the original Coronet lighting fixtures thrilled me more than about 99% than most of the readers I'm guessing, lol.
