Review - Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh

Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh
Publisher: Sphere (Little Brown Book Group)
Release date: 8 March 2018
Back cover blurb: The police say it was suicide. Anna says it was murder. They're both wrong. One year ago, Caroline Johnson chose to end her life brutally: a shocking suicide planned to match that of her husband just months before. Their daughter, Anna, has struggled to come to terms with their loss ever since. Now with a young baby of her own, Anna misses her mother more than ever and starts to ask questions about her parents' deaths. But by digging up the past, is she putting her future in danger? Sometimes it's safer to let things lie . . . The stunning, twisty new psychological thriller from number one bestseller Clare Mackintosh, author of I LET YOU GO and I SEE YOU.

Anna Johnson is still trying to come to terms with death of her Mother twelve months on from her shocking suicide, when she receives an anonymous note that makes her question her Mother’s passing.

She has never fully believed that her Mother would commit suicide, particularly not after Anna’s Father did the same. Both of Anna’s parents plummeted to their deaths from the infamous suicide spot, Beachy Head.

But could it be that they were murdered?

Anna has always wondered. 

The arrival of the anonymous note prompts her to do something about it. Retired Detective Murray Mackenzie is on the reception of the local Police station when Anna finally plucks up the courage to report the suspected crime.

Murray is usually a stickler for rules, as he is no longer a serving detective he should pass the note and the information that Anna has given him on to his serving colleagues. 

But there is something in Anna’s story that brings the detective in him back to life and he decides to keep the information to himself so that he can begin his own investigation. What they go on to discover is something that can’t be reviewed for fear of giving too much away!

I didn’t think that Clare Mackintosh could top her first two books, but somehow she has managed it. Let Me Lie is so cleverly plotted that every time I thought I knew what was happening I was thrown in another direction entirely. Another masterpiece by this author!

Let Me Lie is available now via Amazon online and all good book shops.

Thank You to the publishers who approved my request via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
