Now in mass market—the “genuinely shocking” (New York Times Book Review) thriller with a twist that will make readers gasp.

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.

Story Locale: Bristol (southwest England) and Wales

MASS MARKET REPRINT of the bestselling, award-winning debut thriller, lauded by The Girl on the Train author Paula Hawkins and Make Me author Lee Child

UK SUCCESS: Both I Let You Go and Clare’s follow-up, I See You, were instant London Times bestsellers, with I Let You Go selling over a half-million copies in the UK

THE RICHARD AND JUDY SUMMER BOOK CLUB FAVORITE: Both I Let You Go and I See You were Richard and Judy Summer Book Club picks; the book club is England’s equivalent of Oprah’s Book Club

AWARD-WINNING: I Let You Go was the winner of the Theakston Award for Best Novel of the Year at Harrogate in July 2016 and the Prix Polar International, won in 2015 by Paula Hawkins

MEDIA SENSATION: I Let You Go garnered raves from The New York Times Book Review, The Associated Press, Booklist, and Shelf Awareness, and as well as starred reviews from Kirkus Reviews and Library Journal
