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 disappearance.
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 strangled.
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. . . .
