LET ME LIE by Clare Macintosh / Psychological thriller / Released March 13 by Berkley
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….
“Death does not suit me. I wear it like a borrowed coat; it slips off my shoulders and trailes in the dirt. It is ill fitting. Uncomfortable.”
Thus begins one of the most intriguing books I have read in a long time. LET ME LIE is like traveling a mountain road with twists and turns continually rising to a peak where, finally, all becomes clear.
I definitely recommend this is a gasp-worthy, page-turning journey of a daughter as she searches for the truth about the parents she was certain she knew.
I received a complimentary copy from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
