Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh

Audio Book – Narrated by Gemma Whelan

Exciting with plenty of twists     

My rating:  5 out of 5     


Anna’s father died by suicide.  Not long after Anna’s mother died in a copycat suicide.  Let Me LieAnna is struggling to come to accept that her parents would do this to her, and then a mysterious card arrives which throws her into turmoil.

Just as I thought I had the answer, a massive twist arrived, and then another and so it went on.   Plenty of interesting characters in this fast moving and exciting thriller.

The narration was excellent, drawing you deeper into the characters. 

I mostly listen to audio books when I’m out exercising so this makes for a stop/start experience, however I had no problem following the story, even with days between listening to it.  5*s from me, as it was exciting, realistic and I couldn’t wait to find out the answers.

At the end of the audio book is a piece from Clare Mackintosh about how the book came about, and then a question and answer section.  These were great add-ons, however don’t be tempted to listen to them before reading the book as they contain spoilers.

This is the third book I have read/listened to by this author – and I can’t wait for more!
