I am re-reading I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh this week. I had to check to see if I had done an excerpt on it here before, but it doesn’t look like I have. This is a domestic thriller/police procedural mashup about the hit-and-run killing of a five-year-old boy. Despite the fact that I figured out most of the twists ahead of time, it was still an enjoyable read. It is well-written and intriguing, even if you know the plot ahead of time.

My hand hurts. I can feel my pulse beating rapid and light in my wrist. I’m glad of the pain. I wish it were more. I wish it had been me the car hit.

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.
