Penguin Audio and Berkley - 2018
I finished Let Me Lie this week, a combination of audio download and eGalley and thought it was fairly well done. Here's a mini review:
Annie is a young woman and mother who has struggled to get on with her life after both of her parents committed suicide seven months apart. Both deaths occurred in a similar manner, falling to their deaths off a cliff into the waters deep. When a suspicious note arrives on the anniversary of her mother's death, Anna has reason to question whether murder versus suicide might have been the cause of death. Murray, a semi-retired police officer agrees to help Anna piece together the mystery behind her parents deaths.
This is a twisty, psychological thriller, told from several POVs that held my interest both in audio and in print. The story wasn't perfect, but enjoyable all the same.
Rating - 4/5 stars
Hope everyone has a beautiful Sunday!
