Slowly, Jenna begins to glimpse the potential for happiness in her future. But her past is about to catch up with her, and the consequences will be devastating . . .

“A terrific, compelling read with an astonishing twist that floored me. I loved it and did not want it to end.” ~Peter James
“A hugely assured and gripping debut and a twist that made me green with envy.” ~Mark Billingham
“With its authentic voices, switchback twists and delicate character studies, this is a rewarding read from a writer with a real understanding of what makes a gripping crime novel.” ~Sarah Hilary
“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. Absorbing, authentic and deeply unsettling: a stellar achievement, and so deliciously clever.” ~Elizabeth Haynes
