I couldn't put it down Lucie Whitehouse 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. Absorbing, authentic and deeply unsettling: a stellar achievement, and so deliciously clever Elizabeth Haynes With its authentic voices, switchback twists and delicate character studies, this is a rewarding read from a writer with a real understanding of what makes a gripping crime novel Sarah Hilary Extraordinarily atmospheric, Mackintosh's emotional debut doesn't miss a beat Alex Marwood A disturbing, page-turning thriller that barely loosens its grip Paula Daly A heart-wrenchingly emotional psychological thriller with stunning twists and turns.

Mark Edwards, author of The Magpies From the chilling and tragic opening, to the very last page, I literally couldn't read fast enough. The writing is captivating, and the narrative addictive.
