THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER One of The New York Times Book Review's 10 Best Crime Novels of 2016! The next blockbuster thriller for those who loved The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl..."a finely crafted novel with a killer twist."(#1 New York Times bestselling author Paula Hawkins) 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."

Professional reviews

"In this dual narration, Steven Crossley delivers a third-person account of Detective Inspector Ray Stevens's campaign to find the hit-and-run killer of a little boy--despite his wife's growing resentment of his neglect of family, and despite obstruction by the brass who want to close the case and move on. Nicola Barber performs a first-person Jenna Gray, a young woman shattered by the crime. Crossley's delivery is precise but perhaps a little under-dramatized. Barber's is lovely and moving, with a very slight lisp in Jenna's diction that adds to your sense of her anguish and vulnerability. In her expertly plotted and rendered psychological puzzle, Mackintosh weaves together police procedural, family drama, and the anatomy of a murder. Deftly performed and pretty terrific.
