"Suspense From Beginning to End"

Fresh Fiction Review

Let Me Lie
Clare Mackintosh

Reviewed by Kristen Donnelly
Posted August 8, 2018

Suspense Psychological | Thriller

Y'all, this one is a complicated review.

First of all, if you are a fan of suspense - especially atmospheric British suspense - you'll find a lot to love here in LET ME LIE. It's taut and well plotted, with good pacing and an empathetic protagonist.

The complications come for me with the ending - which I am loathe to discuss. I didn't really feel all of the pieces were fully wrapped up and I closed the book feeling puzzled instead of fully satisfied. As a massive fan of Claire Mackintosh's other works, I was slightly disappointed, but this will not sway me from reading her in the future.

SUMMARY

The police say it was suicide.
Anna says it was murder.
They're both wrong.

Last year, Tom and Caroline Johnson chose to end their lives, one seemingly unable to live without the other. Their daughter, Anna, is struggling to come to terms with her parents' deaths, unwilling to accept the verdict of suicide.

Now with a baby herself, Anna feels her mother's absence keenly and is determined to find out what really happened to her parents. But as she digs up the past, someone is trying to stop her.

Sometimes it's safer to let things lie....
