The Blurb –
Samantha stumbled out of the party and on to a busy street only ten minutes away from her home. But she never made it home…
Seven years after Samantha’s disappearance, on what would have been her thirty-fifth birthday, her best friend Diane is shocked to find a letter addressed to Samantha on her doorstep.
Opening the envelope, Diane pulls out a birthday card and a finger nail painted in dusky pink nail polish. The same shade Samantha always wore. The same shade she was wearing the night she went missing.
When police analyse the nail, they don’t get the result they expected. Instead of linking them to Samantha, the nail belongs to another woman, Jade Ashmore. And Jade was murdered the night before the envelope was delivered….
THE COMPLETELY ADDICTIVE NEW CRIME THRILLER FROM BEST SELLING AUTHOR CARLA KOVACH – if you love Lisa Gardner, Robert Bryndza or Clare Mackintosh, you’ll love The Liar’s House. Gripping from the first page – you won’t be able to put it down.
My thoughts – This is the first DI Gina Harte book that I have read, and I loved it. It hooks you from the very beginning and keeps hold until the very last word.
This book sees Gina and her team struggle find the murderer of Jade Ashmore who is found bludgeoned to death after attending a party with her husband.
Seven years before a local woman Samantha had disappeared, and her friend Diane has never recovered. So she finds it strange when a birthday card addressed to Samantha is delivered to her house. Inside she finds a fingernail, which she assumes to be Samantha’s, however the police find it to be Jades’s.
How are Samantha and Jade linked? Is the same person responsible and is Samantha still alive? Gina and her team have to answer all these questions plus Gina has her own issues to contend with. Can she keep her underlying problems separate from her worklife?
This an excellent read, and I look forward to reading the others in the series.
