Let Me Lie is simply impossible to put down. Complex and clever, this book will grab onto you and will not let go


Emma Kavanagh

I devoured every page of this addictive, complex, multi-viewpoint spider's web of plot and clever characterisation. The big twist took me completely by surprise - but even this was overshadowed by the shock of the last page. No cheating. You're in for a treat

Jane Corry

Gripping, inventive and unexpected. Her best yet

Emily Elgar

Another masterclass in misdirection that twists, twists and - when you think you've figured it out - twists again 

Mark Edwards

A beautifully written, haunting page turner with a devilish twist or two

Colette McBeth

A compelling premise, perfectly paced and threaded with killer twists - Let Me Lie is an utterly gripping psychological thriller

Another one-more-chapter, stay-up-late sensation from Clare Mackintosh. No doubt about it now - she’s a major talent

Lee Child

Brilliantly clever . . . Let Me Lie is a work of genius

Joanna Canon

Nothing is what it seems in this extraordinarily twisty tale of heartbreak and love by Clare “Page-turner” Mackintosh

I absolutely loved Let Me Lie. The plot is engrossing and in Mackenzie Murray Clare Mackintosh has created one of those perfect characters
who stay with you long after the final page is turned
