Join us for an evening in the company of number one bestselling crime author Clare Mackintosh as she talks about her stunning, twisty new psychological thriller, Let Me Lie.

The police say it was suicide.
Anna says it was murder.
They’re both wrong.

One year ago, Caroline Johnson chose to end her life brutally: a shocking suicide planned to match that of her husband just months before. Their daughter, Anna, has struggled to come to terms with their loss ever since.

Now with a young baby of her own, Anna misses her mother more than ever and starts to ask questions about her parents’ deaths. But by digging up the past, is she putting her future in danger? Sometimes it’s safer to let things lie . . .

Clare spent twelve years in the police force, including time on CID, and as a public order commander. She left the police in 2011. Her debut novel, I Let You Go, was the fastest selling title by a new crime writer in 2015. It has sold more than a million copies worldwide. In 2016 Clare received the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year award. Her second book, I See You, charted at number 1 in the Sunday Times hardback bestseller list in July 2016.

We look forward to welcoming Clare to Oswestry the day before publication as part of our ‘Criminally Good’ season of events, celebrating crime writing of the very first order.
