Let Me Lie

Clare Mackintosh

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.


Suicide or murder? Anna believes her parents (who apparently flung themselves off Beachy Head within months of each other) would never have abandoned her; on receiving an anonymous message, she decides they were murdered. The truth lies in an astonishing twist. But should Anna have let things lie.
