"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 young baby herself, she feels her mother's absence keenly and is determined to find out what really happened to her parents. But as Anna digs up the past, someone is trying to stop her. Sometimes it's safer to let things lie...."-- Provided by publisher.

Spell binding book by Clare Mackintosh. This is the third of her books that I have read and she always keeps me interested. Let Me Lie has the same twist as her other books. I thought I knew who was involved, then changed my mind and it was someone else. If you like a good mystery I would recommend her books.

Another page turner from MacIntosh--her 3rd book in a fairly short period of time. The only downside to her books now is you go through just waiting for the "gotcha" that changes everything. For me I was probably overly concerned with that aspect (I hate to be fooled). The plot twist was not quite so twisty as some her other books but still pretty good (and a little added jab right at the end). One of my new favorite authors.

Ever since I read "I Let You Go" I have held Clare Mackintosh in high esteem for her skills in putting together the red herrings and plot twists that surprise you time after time. "Let Me Lie" does not disappoint. We see the story from Anna's POV as well as Murray, a retired police officer who is still helping out at the station and is Anna's first contact there. In addition we have unnamed narrators who could be male or female, alive or dead. Add in a neighbor dispute, a new baby, a faithful dog, a car chase and more and you have a riveting novel. Highly recommended!
