Let Me Lie Reviews
This was my first book by this author although I own I Let You Go, a book I've heard wonderful things about and plan to read soon. I really enjoyed the beginning of this one and was very invested in the characters and the writing. I had enormous sympathy for Anna who lost both her parents to suicide within a year. When there are clues that perhaps her parent's deaths were not suicide, Detective Murray is brought in and re-opens the investigation. He was a welcome addition to the story, and ended ...more
Clare Mackintosh is a brilliant writer. If she writes it, I will read it.
I hate to compare author’s novels to each other and not take them as original works, but I struggled with that in this case. I Let You Go was an amazing book - it ripped out my heart and brought me to tears. (Bit dramatic? Yes. But true.) This one unfortunately didn’t pan out how I was hoping.
This will be an exciting, twisty thriller to some, but for someone who reads a lot of this genre, I found it to be a bit predictabl ...more
Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh is a psychological thriller that was a bit of a slow burn read. The story is told between alternating the point of view between a pair of main characters and then an unknown person involved.
Anna is a new mother that is still struggling with the loss of both of her parents just a year before. Anna’s father had been seen just before he apparently jumped to his death and then shortly after Anna’s mother seems to have done the same thing weighted down with the grief of ...more
I am a huge fan of this authors books so did a bit of a happy dance when I found out she had a new one coming out.
The story flicks between different characters, this way we get to know more about each character. One of the characters we get to meet is Murray, a retired CID who takes it upon himself to investigate the suicides of Anna’s parents. He was someone who my heart went out to. His work is a demanding and stressful one and to be honest I couldn’t see how his home one was any different. He ...more
I feel really bad. I loved this authors first book and was very fond of her 2nd but I have so many problems with this one - not to do with the writing obviously she can write - and not even with the addictive quality it's not like I threw it aside, I wanted to know what happened - but I found the plot and execution disappointing considering it came from such an obviously talented author so rather than my *rating reflecting the writing quality this is ALL about everything else.
There are so many ...more
It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Clare Mackintosh’s debut book I Let You Go and even now, years after reading it – still think OMG what a twist, so you can imagine my delight to receive an early copy of her 3rd standalone psychological thriller Let Me Lie from her publishers.
Let Me Lie is a very twisty, twisted and dark thriller which had me gripped from the first page to the last. The main character Anna Johnson is struggling to cope with the double suicide of her parents a year ago, a ne ...more

On the anniversary of her mother’s death she receives an anonymous and disturbing card:
Suicide? Think again.

2.5 stars rounded down
First off I want to mention that I absolutely loved I LET YOU GO and was absolutely WOWED by that book and subsequently will read anything that CLARE MACKINTOSH writes! Even though this one didn't quite work out for me I will still read future books by this author.
If I am rating this solely on my review rating system this book gets no more than 2.5 stars from me which I have decided to round down. It was just okay and for the most part it wasn’t an enjoyable read for me. ...more
