Another gem from Clare Mackintosh! It's hard to describe her books without spoilers, so suffice it to say that it's full of her trademark twists and is a great read start to finish. I particularly adored Murray's relationship with his mentally ill wife and the sensitive depiction of their difficult life - everyone should have a Murray in their lives.
Thank you netgalley for my review copy of this book. Clare Mackintosh is hands down the best thriller writer there is. Anyone that comes to my store looking for their next thriller gets immediately directed to her books! This is Ms. Mackintosh's third novel and while her first will probably always be my favorite she continues to thrill and amaze with every new book she writes. I have never sen anyone able to execute a plot twist as well as Clare Mackintosh! In Let Me Lie Anna has believed for the last year that her parents comitted suicide. With the help of her therapist turned lover and her newborn daughter Anna is slowly starting to come to terms with the deaths of her parents. Until she gets a letter telling her that things may not be as clear as they seemed. Will trying to uncover the mystery of why her parents would commit suicide is Anna putting her own life in danger? The answers she finds in this mystery might not be the ones she wants. Sometimes it's much safer to leave the past in the past but will it be too late for Anna when she finally realizes it?
