Kate Livingston is blissfully in love with her new husband Michael and living a dream life in an idyllic French-Canadian town. Yet something is not right. Kate senses a connection between Michael and her best friend, Liza. As she becomes increasingly suspicious of their evasive behaviour, she begins to doubt her own sanity. Is her husband's restaurant a front for something far more sinister? Is Liza really a pharmaceutical salesperson? Is anyone who they seem? Desperate for answers, Kate stumbles upon a secret that shatters her world. The death of a Russian journalist becomes the catalyst for a series of international events that will put Kate's life – and the lives of the people she loves – in grave danger. with twists that will leave you breathless, THE GOOD LIAR takes you from the battlefields of the Vietnam war to modern day Chicago, while grappling with that most complex of moral dilemmas: Does the end justify the means?

Review: The Good Liar

User Review  - Leslea - Goodreads

This was the old "I married a spy and didn't know" type of story. It was a good read but nothing to knock my socks off. Lovely flowing writing and I enjoyed Kate's growth in character and strength as the book progressed. Would probably make a great movie. Read full review

User Review  - Cherry-Ann - Goodreads

Not such a fast pace read. Started to get a bit annoyed with the flashbacks though I suppose this was the best way it could have been handled. A bit deja vu but a good read nonetheless. Read full review
