Also the owner of: http://silversolara.blogspot.com I enjoy reading historical fiction and mystery. I live in Pennsylvania and am a retired business teacher.
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 daylight 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.
This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.
