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…

I Let You Go
Reviews


A terrific, compelling read with an astonishing twist
that floored me. I loved it and did not want it to end.
Peter James


A superbly written, tense book that will actually make you gasp out loud!

The Sun


This is a story so heartfelt that reading it feels like intruding on a private nightmare, yet it never frightens you away and ends with a series of searing twists. Even if Mackintosh never writes another thriller as good as this – though I think she will – she should be vastly proud of this one.

Daily Mail


An accomplished first novel

Literary Review


Deft, plot-twisting and emotional debut.

Woman & Home


After a tragic car accident, a woman flees to the Welsh coast – so far so straightforward, but then the novel slams on the brakes and does a u-turn so surprising you'll be flicking back to the start to hunt down the clues you missed.

Stylist


Tense, twisty, emotionally haunting; this follows Jenna, a grieving woman who is trying to escape the repercussions of a tragic accident she was involved in with her partner.

Sunday Mirror


Astonishingly good!

Lee Child


A clever thriller that boasts fine writing, compelling characters and mind-bending twists; put this one on your list of recommended vacation reads.

Christine Tran
Booklist


The author’s real skill is in the way she incorporates jaw-dropping, yet plausible, plot twists into the already complex storyline. Mackintosh has written the kind of book that sticks in the reader’s mind well after the final sentence.

Kirkus Starred Review


Chilling, compelling and compassionate, I Let You Go is a finely-crafted novel with a killer twist

Paula Hawkins, author of global bestseller The Girl on a Train


The big plot twist in Clare Mackintosh’s first novel, I LET YOU GO (Berkley), is genuinely shocking. The jolts that follow, right up until the last page, are pretty good too. And if you’re the kind of genre geek who jumps back to the ­beginning of a book to work out how you’ve been hoodwinked, you’ll find that the author has played fair and square.

New York Times Book Review


Twists and turns all the way. A brilliant debut.

Jeffrey Archer


I Let You Go is a masterclass in plotting, with a killer twist. I could not put it down.

Jojo Moyes


One of the best thrillers of 2016... A heart-pumping, thrilling emotional ride, I Let You Go is one psychological thriller you won't want to miss.
