In this gripping debut procedural, a young London
policewoman must probe dark secrets buried deep in her
own family’s past to solve a murder and a long-ago
Your father is a liar. But is he a killer?
Even liars tell the truth . . . sometimes.
Twenty-six-year-old Cat Kinsella overcame a troubled
childhood to become a Detective Constable with the
Metropolitan Police Force, but she’s never been able to
banish these ghosts. When she’s called to the scene of a
murder in Islington, not far from the pub her estranged
father still runs, she discovers that Alice Lapaine, a
young housewife who didn’t get out much, has been found
Cat and her team immediately suspect Alice’s husband,
until she receives a mysterious phone call that links the
victim to Maryanne Doyle, a teenage girl who went missing
in Ireland eighteen years earlier. The call raises uneasy
memories for Cat—her family met Maryanne while on
holiday, right before she vanished. Though she was only a
child, Cat knew that her charming but dissolute father
wasn’t telling the truth when he denied knowing anything
about Maryanne or her disappearance. Did her father do
something to the teenage girl all those years ago? Could
he have harmed Alice now? And how can you trust a liar
even if he might be telling the truth?
Determined to close the two cases, Cat rushes headlong
into the investigation, crossing ethical lines and
trampling professional codes. But in looking into the
past, she might not like what she finds. . . .
