The police say it was suicide. Anna says it was murder. They're both wrong.

One year ago, Caroline Johnson chose to end her life brutally: a shocking suicide planned to match that of her husband just months before. Their daughter, Anna, has struggled to come to terms with their loss ever since.

Now with a young baby of her own, Anna misses her mother more than ever and starts to ask questions about her parents' deaths. But by digging up the past, is she putting her future in danger? Sometimes it's safer to let things lie...

A brilliant roller-coaster of a read * Closer Magazine * Let Me Lie grabs you from the first page and never lets go. Taut, compelling and twisty * Linda Green, bestselling author of While My Eyes Were Closed * Latest gripper from popular ex-copper turned bestseller, in which Anna starts to doubt the suicide verdicts on her parents' deaths. The insight and delicacy with which Mackintosh draws her characters - from new mother Anna to weary police officer Murray - is compelling * SUNDAY TIMES AND TIMES CRIME CLUB * A rollercoaster read * PRIMA * With Clare Mackintosh's trademark clever twists, this will keep you up all night * FABULOUS * Clare Mackintosh is the master of surprise * DAILY EXPRESS * Clare Mackintosh just keeps getting better and better - no mean feat after her first two cracking novels. She's so good at getting under the skin of ordinary lives to reveal hidden stories and dramas . . . I honestly raced through the book * JULIA CROUCH, author of Her Husband's Lover * I absolutely loved Let Me Lie. The plot is engrossing and in Murray Mackenzie Clare Mackintosh has created one of those perfect characters who stay with you long after the final page is turned * SARAH FRANKIN, author of Shelter * Nothing is what it seems in this extraordinarily twisty tale of heartbreak and love by Clare Page-turner Mackintosh * MICHELLE FRANCES, author of The Girlfriend * Shocking, dark and brilliant, I loved it! * SAM HEPBURN, author of Her Perfect Life * A compelling premise, perfectly paced and threaded with killer twists - Let Me Lie is an utterly gripping psychological thriller * LUCY CLARKE, author of Last Seen * A beautifully written, haunting page turner with a devilish twist or two * COLETTE McBETH, author of An Act of Silence * Brilliantly clever . . .

You think you know what she is doing, and that seems thrilling enough, and then she pulls the rug from under you. So very clever. Totally absorbing and original * SABINE DURRANT, author of Sunday Times bestselling Lie With Me * Let Me Lie is simply impossible to put down. Complex and clever, this book will grab onto you and will not let go * EMMA KAVANAGH, author of Falling * Gripping, inventive and unexpected. Her best yet * EMILY ELGAR, author of If You Knew Her * I devoured every page of this addictive, complex, multi-viewpoint spider's web of plot and clever characterisation. The big twist took me completely by surprise - but even this was overshadowed by the shock of the last page. No cheating. You're in for a treat * JANE CORRY, author of My Husband's Wife and Blood Sisters * Clare Mackintosh does it again. A brilliantly twisting tale of toxic families * ERIN KELLY, Sunday Times bestselling author of He Said/She Said * Brilliant. Tense and surprising but heartbreaking and sensitively written . . .
