Happy Wednesday! Today I have a review of The Perfect Liar by Thomas Christopher Greene and publishing via St. Martin’s Press on January 15, 2018!
Susannah and Max are married. It’s the second marriage for Susannah. Her first husband passed away. Max is charming and the life of the party. He is now stepfather to her fifteen-year-old son.
Susannah thinks the past is behind her and her new life is idyllic when she receives a note on her door one morning.
The note says, “I know who you are.”
Max is not worried in the least about the note; however, just days after having dinner with Susannah and Max, someone dies in an accident while on a run…with Max.
And that is all followed with another note on the door, “Did you get away with it?”
Susannah and Max each have secrets, and they are big ones. Their idyllic world would be shattered if they come to light.
I loved hearing from both Susannah and Max, and the ending was out of sight. The whole time I was questioning who is the perfect liar? Or is it both of them? Unexpected and unpredictable, The Perfect Liar is a solid thriller!
Thanks to St. Martin’s Press for the complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.
A seemingly perfect marriage is threatened by the deadly secrets husband and wife keep from each other, for fans of B.A. Paris and Paula Hawkins.
Susannah, a young widow and single mother, has remarried well: to Max, a charismatic artist and popular speaker whose career took her and her fifteen-year-old son out of New York City and to a quiet Vermont university town. Strong-willed and attractive, Susannah expects that her life is perfectly in place again. Then one quiet morning she finds a note on her door: I KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
Max dismisses the note as a prank. But days after a neighborhood couple comes to dinner, the husband mysteriously dies in a tragic accident while on a run with Max. Soon thereafter, a second note appears on their door: DID YOU GET AWAY WITH IT?
Both Susannah and Max are keeping secrets from the world and from each other —secrets that could destroy their family and everything they have built. The Perfect Liar is a thrilling novel told through the alternating perspectives of Susannah and Max with a shocking climax that no one will expect, from the bestselling author of The Headmaster’s Wife.
