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.” *Peter James, author of Want You Dead
Awesome book from the beginning to the end! If you read the excerpt then you know that this is every parents worst nightmare, the death of a child, especially if you are a single mom and the child is really all you have.
I liked the way that the story is told from different perspectives of a few of the characters. This is sort of a suspense/mystery story. The story is told so well from the detectives point of view as they try to solve the case and from another character in the book who remains somewhat of a mystery person, I do not want to go into too much detail or I will ruin the unbelievable twist in this book.
I would say that this is one of my favorite, could not put down, books so far this year. The ending really does have quite a surprise twist.
