And redemption can come in the most unlikely forms....

Praise for this book

"Mike is always wise and wonderful, but this is a whole new departure for him - read it!" - Jenny Colgan

"The Man I Think I Know is gloriously good. Touching, uplifting, brave and funny, it's a story of life, second chances and daring to believe in better things. James and Danny's friendship is beautifully portrayed: I was rooting for them from the start and cheering them to the finish. I defy anyone not to fall in love with this book. Downright wonderful!" - Miranda Dickinson

"A pair of characters a was rooting for from the start and cheering for by the end." - Ruth Hogan

"That rarest of things; a moving, beautifully written novel about male friendship. The Man I Think I Know is a truthful, wise and wonderfully redemptive story about men stripped bare of the traditional ideals of masculinity - success, strength, power - learning to face up to the real world. I absolutely loved it." - Lisa Jewell

"A very special book. A moving, thought-provoking storyline told with humour and insight. I loved the distinctive voices of James and Danny and really missed them when I finished it!" - Tracy Rees
