    • Abstract:
      Summary: "When Carrie was accused of brutally murdering her husband's lover, she denied it. She denied it again when they found her blood inside the victim's house, again when they put her in front of a jury, and again when they sent her to prison. Now three years into her fifteen-year sentence, gradually losing hope and separated from her pregnant daughter, she is still maintaining her innocence. Tess is the only employee of Innocence UK, a charity that helps clear the wrongfully convicted, and which accepts Carrie's case. But can she trust Carrie? Meanwhile, in order to find the truth, Tess must face her own past lies, all the while managing the naïve junior investigator assigned to be her shadow. An innovative spin on the crime novel full of wicked twists readers won't see coming, Paula Daly's Clear My Name raises the stakes in a grave miscarriage of justice and proves that even in a cold case, things still run hot"-- Provided by publisher.

Reviews

Booklist Reviews 2019 August #1

A sixth winner for Daly (after Open Your Eyes, 2018) with a timely theme, the incarceration of the wrongly convicted, at its core. Tess is an investigator for Innocence UK, a charity that reexamines cases where doubts remain, and her new client, Carrie, still holds to her innocence three years into her 15-year sentence for the brutal murder of her husband's lover. A seasoned pro, Tess creates an even playing ground by assuming that "they're all lying," a message she passes on to a somewhat naive young woman named Avril whom she has been mentoring and whose presence she hopes will help increase the charity's caseload. Well, they are all lying, and the lies are revealed at an even pace, carrying the narrative forward to a suspenseful and surprising climax that readers will realize too late that they should have seen coming. Tess herself must confront secrets she has struggled desperately to hide in order to effect Carrie's release. Fans of domestic thrillers will find the revelations about families and the lengths that mothers and daughters will go to protect one another both disturbing and touching.

PW Reviews 2019 July #1

As the sole investigator for Innocence U.K., a British nonprofit fighting to free the wrongly convicted, Tess Gilroy, the heroine of this powerful thriller from Daly (Open Your Eyes), often feels her tasks are Sisyphean, but her latest assignment presents even greater challenges than usual. Tess must reexamine the evidence that sent middle-aged mother Carrie Kamara to prison for the stabbing murder four years earlier of her husband's mistress. For former probation officer Tess, the case literally hits too close to home. It forces her to return for the first time in decades to the faded northwestern coastal town of Morecambe, England, where the crime took place—and where Tess suffered childhood traumas from which she has been running ever since. As Tess searches for the break that could give Carrie back her life, the author skillfully explores the question of whether Tess can finally manage to do the same for herself. Daly's fans will welcome this gritty departure from her popular novels of domestic suspense. Agent: Jane Gregory, David Higham Assoc. (U.K.). (Sept.)
