I Let You Go/Clare Mackintosh/369 pgs.
5 year-old Jacob is killed by a hit-and-run driver on a dark, rainy afternoon. It is up to the Bristol police investigators to determine who the driver was who left the scene of the accident, and bring that person to justice. I don't want to give away much of the story, so I will say that I stayed up until 4:00 in the morning to see how all of the twists and turns played out. The book has been recommended for fans of "Gone Girl," but I found it a much more suspenseful, and better written, story. It's hard to believe that this is a debut novel--highly recommended!
