Liar, Liar by M. J. Arlidge


Four separate, deadly fires all within two days' time​.  Was it one person or was it a team?  The police department was baffled.

Each fire was planned and carefully calculated with deaths occurring in three​ of the four fires and the horrible terror that accompanies the thoughts of how each person died​.

The arsonist was elusive and clever,​ and the police force ​wasn't able to apprehend who did it or find similarities when it came to who and why that specific house was chosen as the target​.  Helen Grace, top police woman, ​was always top-notch at her job, but nothing good was happening with this case.


LIAR, LIAR is the first book I have read by M. J. Arlidge and ​I ​enjoyed the brief chapters, the characters, and the tension that built as the book continued.  ​M. J. Arlidge skillfully worded each sentence and situation and made the fear​ and frustration​ caused by the fires very real​.​
            ​ ​
LIAR, LIAR was ​an anxious, edgy,
non-stop read simply because of the frightening subject​.  ​Every time I thought I knew who the arsonist was, I was wrong.​

Reading LIAR, LIAR would be best during the day​light hours.  The ending is outstanding, and quite a surprise.   


You will also find out the meaning of the title, which had me puzzled until the end.  

ENJOY!!  5/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.

  6. This looks like a really good mystery/suspense. I've seen this one around but hadn't given it much thought. Perhaps, I should.
