Description

The “twist” is what everyone is talking about, and yes, I too got caught out by it and didn’t see it coming! The woman tuts and starts talking: half to herself, I think, but perhaps she feels I will have a view.

The squeal of wet brakes, the thud of a five- year-old boy hitting the windshield and the spin of his body before it slams onto the road. Escaping her marriage and past hurts, Jenna finds solace in an isolated and cold stone cottage in Penfach. 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 .Jacob is a 5 year old little boy who lets go of his mother's hand for a brief moment and is killed in a hit and run in the prologue of this gripping police procedural. All I will say is that the plot is cleverly written, with twists that I have already told you are amazing and plenty more surprise moments along the way.

At some point right before the book changes gears (and trust me, you’ll know when this is happening), I did find myself wondering what this story was marching along towards. Apparently Jacob’s father never wanted any- thing to do with him, so it’s always been the two of them. The Welsh countryside was a joy to read about, the ocean sounds wonderful there, even if so very different to the sunny summers of Sydney. At the same time, the novel tracks the pair of Bristol police investigators trying to get to the bottom of this hit-and-run. Some might find a bit of a hate/love with Jenna I think, for me, I reserved judgement on her until the end of the book.The seashore beckons Jenna with its blustery winds as she comes upon a tiny rental cabin not far from the shore. I did get a brief sense of deja vu - as I read a book last year The Bed I Made which also involves a young woman who moves to a secluded area to escape her past. It starts with a mother walking with her son when tragedy strikes as he is mown down in a hit and run. Perhaps it has also set on her paranoia; perhaps she has turned resolutely away from the imagined writing in the sand, with newfound resolve to put her past behind her.

Passing cars send spray over their shoes; the noise from the traffic making it impossible for her to hear more than a few words of the chattering update that began the moment the school gates opened.I pull on yesterday’s clothes and go into the garden without stop- ping to make a coffee, even though my mouth is so dry it’s an effort to swallow. This is a puzzling mystery but the pacing was too slow in the beginning or perhaps it just took too long to get to the action and then once it got there, it really stretched the limits of what is believable.

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. Even when you think she’s pulled the last piece out from under you, and surely her story can’t withstand another twist, she does it. Reading a little about the author and her background in the police force for many years, this story germinated from an actual real life hit and run accident of a nine year old boy.

Characters isolate themselves and show terrible judgment as they each try to cope with their individual burdens.
