Publisher's Summary

The next blockbuster thriller for those who loved The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl.... A novel with "an astonishing intensity that drags you in and never - ever - lets you go" (Daily Mail, UK).
On a rainy afternoon, a mother's life is shattered as her son slips from her grip and runs into the street....
I Let You Go follows Jenna Gray as she moves to a ramshackle cottage on the remote Welsh coast, trying to escape the memory of the car accident that plays again and again in her mind and desperate to heal from the loss of her child and the rest of her painful past.
At the same time, the novel tracks the pair of Bristol police investigators trying to get to the bottom of this hit-and-run. As they chase down one hopeless lead after another, they find themselves as drawn to each other as they are to the frustrating, twist-filled case before them.
Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner, says, "I read I Let You Go in two sittings; it made me cry (at least twice), made me gasp out loud (once), and above all made me wish I'd written it...a stellar achievement."

I Can Predict This Book In Three Notes

Would you try another book from Clare Mackintosh and/or Nicola Barber and Steven Crossley ?


Has I Let You Go turned you off from other books in this genre?

I am starting to believe they should have a weak female character genre. I would never knowingly buy those books.

Which character – as performed by Nicola Barber and Steven Crossley – was your favorite?

Both narrators were good.

Could you see I Let You Go being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

This is definitely a Lifetime Television movie. I would not watch.

Any additional comments?

This was a very predictable book except for one twist. The one twist did not improve the book for me. And the story line did not make a lot of sense. I predicted early on how it was going to end, and I was right.

Unpleasant and predictable

Truely unpleasant characters ( Jenna was an emotional mess, Ian an absolute beast ). The police investigation was mildly interesting. The reported plot twists were completely predictable. The (2) narrators are usually excellent, but they couldn't make this either suspenseful or entertaining. One word review - YUCK.
