Title: The Liar’s Daughter Author: Claire Allen Publisher: Avon Published: 23rd January 2020 Format: eBook Source:: Review Copy from Netgalley Add It:Amazon UK. Goodreads. Summary: No one deserves to be taken before their time. Do they?
Joe McKee – pillar of the Derry community – is dead. As arrangements are made for the traditional Irish wake, friends and family are left reeling at how cancer could have taken this much-loved man so soon.
But grief is the last thing that Joe’s daughter Ciara and step-daughter Heidi feel. For they knew the real Joe – the man who was supposed to protect them and did anything but.
As the mourners gather, the police do too, with doubt being cast over whether Joe’s death was due to natural causes. Because the lies that Joe told won’t be taken to the grave after all – and the truth gives his daughters the best possible motive for killing him…
A gripping suspense novel about deadly secrets and lies. The perfect read for fans of Clare Mackintosh.
The Liar’s Daughter is the kind of thriller that I absolutely love to read – and I did absolutely love this book! The first thing that pulled me in was the easy narration which was first person. You jumped between the two main characters but you could really tell that each was different and unique which is always good. On top of that, the words just hooked me straight in. The story pulled at my curiosity and had me itching to continue reading and find out what was happening.
I flew through this book in the end. I think it took me about two days to read in the end because I simply could not put the book down. This may not seem like much but I am the kind of person that often takes a week to finish a book because I get distracted or want to read a different book. So the fact that I didn’t is a good testament to how much this book was addictive and intense.
The atmosphere in the book was truly incredible. You could feel the tension between all of the characters. I was thrown off on who did it just once but my second guess was on the money – which may seem like a bad thing but it also added to the suspense while you watch the characters try and sort through everything that was happening.
If there are four people in the house when a murder occurs – who can you trust? This is essentially how this book played out and the lack of trust between the characters was so fascinating to read. I would highly recommend this book if you like claustrophobic type thrillers!
