Well written story involving a family who is dealing with suicide. As this story develops there are many twists and turns that keep you engaged until the very end - and even then is it really the end??????? Keeps your interest until the very last line on the last page. Highly recommend.

It was hard to grasp what I was reading right at first. It is well worth the time! I will be reading more by this author. This book is about suscide and the aftermath of the person left behind to cope with the emotions and the affects. Full of twist and turns you will not want to miss this well written book.

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!
