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….
My Thoughts: Multiple narrators, including an anonymous one, lead us through Let Me Lie.
I liked trying to decipher the clues that came to Anna in the form of scary messages. Odd events that make her question everything she thought she knew.
Would Anna find the answers to the disturbing events? Would her family secrets be unveiled? What if her past was exposed as a twisted lie?
Murray Mackenzie, the retired detective who worked the case, was an interesting character. I liked how his own personal issues with his mentally ill wife added another layer to the story. He seemed to be a compassionate person, which isn’t necessarily how I see the police. But I liked how he worked, and even how he and his wife Sarah talked about possible scenarios. They felt like a team, and those moments were some of their best.
As the pace sped up, and just when I thought I knew what was happening, unexpected truths were revealed.
Even beyond what I thought was “the end,” another surprise stunned me. I had to read the last line again and again, leaving me with more questions. A 4.5 star read.
Oh, and if you're reading and thinking that something doesn't make sense or is not realistic, trust the author - it'll all add up in the end.
Personally, I found this book not as good as her second one (I didn't enjoy being in the head space of the first book's protagonist, even though the twist was brilliant), but still one of the best I've read this year.
