Su mejor novela hasta la fecha.» .-Marian Keyes La policía dice que fue un suicidio.   Anna dice que fue un asesinato.   Ambos se equivocan. Hace un año, Caroline Johnson eligió acabar con su vida de forma brutal: un suicidio planeado para ponerle fin a todo del mismo modo que lo hizo marido meses atrás.

Not what I expected but absolutely amazing twists. Loved it. ( )

Predictable. Nothing real exciting or new with this story, but there is an interesting twist or two. Kind of just a middle of the road type of book. ( )

Anna's parents committed suicide. They both jumped from Beachy Head a few months apart. Close to the anniversary of her mother's death, Anna receives a cryptic note.

Suicide? Think again.

She begins to think that maybe her parents were murdered. Maybe they didn't both leap to their deaths from the cliff and take that long plunge into the sea.

She finds one retired police officer willing to listen to her. But everyone else thinks maybe she is losing her mind. Maybe the grief is just too much for her to bear.

But Anna knows something is wrong.....and she is determined to find out what.

Wow.....this book is a twisted, suspenseful mind-bending thriller! As I read, I had a theory about the way I thought the story would end. I was completely wrong....but the ending was magnificent anyway! Loved it! This story has plenty of suspense, moves at a good pace and contains more than enough twists, turns and surprises to keep readers turning the pages until the very end! I even looked up information on Beachy Head so I could picture the area. The cliff is steep....and that's a horrendous drop! And, unfortunately people do commit suicide by jumping from the top. :(

This is the first book by Clare Mackintosh that I've read. I will definitely be reading more! Great thriller! (And yes...I mean all of those exclamation points. I really enjoyed this book!)

Since I had to get this back to the library this week, I moved this up and am wrapping up my "Watchers" read as well. I have to say that I could not put this book down last night! It was insanely good and the twists I didn't see coming well expertly done. I also like how Mackintosh plays with POVs via some of the narrative choices she chose. I thought this worked from beginning to end and I have to go back and read some more of her thriller/suspense novels.

"Let Me Lie" follows 20 something year old Anna Johnson. Anna is a new mother in a new relationship mourning the loss of her parents (Tom and Caroline Johnson) the year before. Both her father and mother committed suicide and Anna has always thought that someone has murdered them. When she gets a post in the mail that alludes to something sinister happening she goes to the police hoping they will re-investigate her parents' suicide. From there "Let Me Lie" follows not only Anna's POV, but someone close to her (no spoilers) and a retired police detective who finds himself intrigued about Anna's parents' case.

So I really liked Anna and felt for her. She had a great upbringing with her mother and father and feels a bit adrift after having her daughter. Once she receives the anonymous post in the mail about her parents she starts going back over her family's history and meeting with her father's brother and wondering if she ever really knew her parents. When her long-time family friend Laura trying to help Anna let go of the past, she starts to wonder if she's just looking for a reason behind her parents suicides or if there really was something more sinister going on.

I thought that Anna's boyfriend Mark was kept underdeveloped on purpose. You have Anna constantly protesting the relationship internally and saying how it works, but even at times you have her popping her head up and wondering about them being together no matter how many times she protests to her uncle and Laura.

The retired detective Murray Mackenzie's POV was welcomed in this one. I felt so much sympathy for this character. Mackintosh shows how relentless he is in order to figure out the truth and how much inner pain he is due to the constant episodes with his wife Sarah that have caused her to be voluntary committed to a psychiatric hospital.

The writing was really good and the flow works. Mackintosh ensures the chapter headings show us when Anna and Murray are "speaking." And then we get another POV and then a fourth POV that I just shivered in delight with once things get revealed. I went back and re-read those knowing what I know now and just went "ah so clever." I loved the fact that Mackintosh takes a hard look at people's memories of an event and flips it around so many times in this one.

The setting of the book focuses mostly on Anna's family home and how hard she is trying to hang onto it. You get why Mark wants to move since I felt a lot of times that once again Anna was seeing the house in the past (happy families) and Mark was seeing it as it was (place where two people who killed themselves lived and dark aura around everything).

The ending was fantastic! Loved it from beginning to end.

Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh is a suspenseful mystery about a young woman who begins to suspect her parents' suicides may have been murder.

Anna Johnson is living in her family home with her partner Mark Hemmings and their two month old daughter, Ella. On the one year anniversary of her mother Caroline's suicide, she receives a card that makes her think her parents' deaths might be murder instead of suicide. Taking her suspicions to the local police, retired CID officer Murray Mackenzie who is now a civilian desk clerk, decides to re-examine the closed cases on his own. When Anna's family is threatened and she makes a shocking discovery, she tries to convince Murray to end his investigation, but he has uncovered information that might support her murder theory.

In her mid-twenties, Anna is trying to move on from her parents' deaths and she is coping well enough until the one year anniversary of her mum's suicide. She was quite close to her parents, only leaving home long enough to go to university. She is also close to her uncle Billy and her mum's goddaughter Laura. Anna's pregnancy was unintended but she is embracing motherhood although she is reluctant to say yes to Mark's marriage proposals.

Murray truly enjoyed his career but he wanted to retire on his own terms. He is married to his beloved wife Sarah whose lifelong struggle with mental illness has also included numerous inpatient stays in psychiatric facilities. With Sarah currently in hospital, Murray quietly looks into Tom and Caroline's suicides and he is puzzled by a few details from the original investigations. Since he is a civilian employee now, he must rely on his instincts and good old fashioned detective work to examine the cases. Murray still has a few friends on the force who are willing to do him a few favors when he needs a little extra help. Murray quickly concludes that Anna's parents' deaths are most likely foul play, but he is puzzled by her insistence he end his investigation.

Unfolding from Anna's, Murray's and an unknown person's perspectives, Let Me Lie is an engrossing mystery. The characters are engaging and well-developed although some are more likable than others. It is virtually impossible to guess the unknown narrator's identity and this person's passages are a little dark and somewhat chilling. The novel is divided into three parts and each of them have plenty of twists and turns. Clare Mackintosh brings the novel to a breathless, action packed conclusion that wraps up all of the various threads and with one final, jaw-dropping revelation, the story comes to a stunning finale.
