Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh

‘Let Me Lie’ is a thriller by Clare Mackintosh with more than one surprising twist.

One year ago Anna Johnson’s mother committed suicide, only 7 months after her father also committed suicide. Since then, Anna has met a man she loves and now has a 2 month old baby, but she is still traumatised and grieving. She didn’t think that either of her parents were likely to take their own lives.

Now on the anniversary of her mother’s death, Anna receives a card that makes her question her parents’ suicides even more. She approaches the police to have the investigation into their deaths reopened. But there are some who are prepared to go to any lengths to stop further investigation.

As the story progresses, we discover what happened, how it happened and finally why.


I won’t say any more about the plot as this novel is all about the surprise. This was a completely gripping psychological thriller that pulled my emotions in one direction, followed by another, followed by another. My favourite sort of novel.

Everyone became a suspect at some point.

I also loved the second storyline with Murray and his amazing wife Sarah. They were both beautiful characters who added a lot to the story.

That’s 3 out of 3 of Clare Mackintosh’s novels that I have totally loved. I can’t wait for her next release.
