I Let You Go

91WIsvR6X-L.jpgI enjoyed I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh. It was a fast-paced thriller with unpredictable twists and turns. However, about 3/4 of the way through, I discovered that what I thought had been happening hadn’t really been happening. And, I can’t figure out if that was the author’s intent, or if I just didn’t read carefully enough. I think the former. Nevertheless, this was a good debut. I can’t really even describe the plot now that I know what I know. Amazon says: “On a rainy afternoon, a mother’s life is shattered as her son slips from her grip and runs into the street . . .” The story is told in alternating chapters by Jenna who runs away from the scene of the crime and the police trying to solve the case. Thank goodness for the alternation, because the police chapters allow for one’s heart to stop racing before heading back for more. Now I need to move out of the thriller, British crime realm!!
