Description from the publishers through Netgalley:
The stunning new novel from Clare Mackintosh, the international bestselling author of I Let You Go and I See You
The police say it was suicide.
Anna says it was murder.
They’re both wrong.
Last year, Tom and Caroline Johnson chose to end their lives, one seemingly unable to live without the other. Their daughter, Anna, is struggling to come to terms with her parents’ deaths, unwilling to accept the verdict of suicide.
Now with a baby herself, Anna feels her mother’s absence keenly and is determined to find out what really happened to her parents. But as she digs up the past, someone is trying to stop her.
Sometimes it’s safer to let things lie….
I have read and loved the other two books that Clare has written. This book is no exception. Clare has a way with telling her story that makes you feel as if you are right there. I found myself holding my breathe at times.
What would you do if you found out that that the life you used to live was a lie? What if you learned that your parents’ suicide wasn’t really a suicide after all? What if by trying to determine what actually happened, you were threatened and your family’s lives were in danger? Anna is struggling with the grief of losing both of her parents when she receives a card that makes her question everything she thought she knew.
Just like Clare’s other works, this book is full of twists and turns. I really enjoyed reading it.
I gave it 5 crowns.
