Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Shortlisted for the Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2016.

A hit-and-run in Bristol, a dead five year old and a CID police partnership with a spark between the partners. Good police procedural stuff. Then a first-person narrative girl, Jenna, goes into hiding in Wales and another first-person voice from her past tells a story too. There is so much left hanging, so much you assume and then find it not to be so that enables the mystery to ratchet up the tension. What starts slowly and pretty formulaically suddenly turns and becomes truly compulsive. Great stuff.

If you like Clare Mackintosh you might also like to read books by Peter James, Sophie Hannah and Alison Gaylin.

Synopsis

I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh

A tragic accident. It all happened so quickly. She couldn't have prevented it. Could she? In a split second, Jenna Gray's world descends into a nightmare. Her only hope of moving on is to walk away from everything she knows to start afresh. Desperate to escape, Jenna moves to a remote cottage on the Welsh coast, but she is haunted by her fears, her grief and her memories of a cruel November night that changed her life forever. Slowly, Jenna begins to glimpse the potential for happiness in her future. But her past is about to catch up with her, and the consequences will be devastating ...
