How far would you go to protect your family?

Single dad Ben is doing his best to raise his children, with the help of his devoted mother, Judi. And then Ben meets Amber. Everyone thinks this is a perfect match for Ben, but Judi isn't so sure.... There's just something about Amber that doesn't add up.

Ben can't see why his mother dislikes his new girlfriend. And Amber doesn't want Judi anywhere near her new family. Amber just wants Ben and the children.

The further Judi delves into Amber's personal life, the closer she gets to shocking secrets that could change everything. And Judi must make a decision that could lead to the most disastrous consequences.

A good story

Mais déroulement un peu lent. Les personnages masculins sont peu attractifs et manquent d’épaisseur. Le final est décevant.

Manipulative train wreck

The prologue sets the scene for the final showdown between two women that we know hate each other enough to kill. Who these two are and how they got to this point is where the story has to go. Unfortunately, author Slater seems to have difficulty distinguishing tension from tedium. Having the POV switch between the adversaries in peel-back-the-onion style keeps the cards held tightly to each ones’ chest, but soon becomes repetitive, especially when it comes to the mom Judi (although Amber gets kind of tiresome too). If this had been shortened to a novella with tighter plotting, maaayybe it would have been more palatable. But the longer the secrets are just teased at, the less tension was sustained – just get on with it please.

Judi and Amber, however unlikable, are the only characters with any dimension. Son Ben was a wuss and husband Henry was a jerk, both paper thin. Story threads meant to add some unexpected interest just muddied the picture and never got resolved. In fact, even after we reach the end and find out who stands and who falls, there’s no real resolution. Scene fades, credits roll and it’s impossible to see how either of these miserable women could “win” because there’s no plausible way to get away with it. There's no attempt at explaining how the killer tries to solidify her victory. I ended feeling I had been manipulated into staring at a train wreck just to see it pull the brake at the last minute and stall on the tracks.

Loved It!

I've bought and read so many awful "thrillers" lately that I'm afraid of wasting money on any more. Liar, however, was completely entertaining all the way through. I thought I knew where it was all headed, but was pleasantly surprised that I hadn't figured it out after all. I found the ending to be unpredictable and I loved it!

This wasn't so much a taut, keep you up at night thriller, as a slowly building suspense novel that makes you think you know everything, only to find out there's more to the story. Like most books in this genre, there are always things that are a bit unbelievable, but this was absolutely one of the best books I've listened to in quite awhile. Lucy Price-Lewis narrated it superbly.

A compelling and twisted psychological thriller!

British author K.L.Slater uses the interesting device of stating the book with the last few sentences of Liar, identified as such, as the opening sentences of the novel.

I hardly know what to say about Liar. It certainly is compelling. Guessing the outcome even with the author's words at the beginning is impossible. Ultimately it is about determination to get ones way even if means destroying oneself in doing so. It is a wonderful novel even as it is incredibly, frighteningly dark. Narration by Lucy Price-Lewis could not be better.

Liar may be the best psychological thriller I have ever read and it is easily deserves a 5 star rating. This author has great talent. I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND Liar.

I felt tricked, and not in a good way

I seem to have been reading a lot of books with endings with a twist lately. This ending is contrived, and I felt cheated by it. I'd recommend "Safe With Me" by the same author over this particular effort.

Nice Performance

The performance was very well done, but the story was lacking. I feel like it ended rather abruptly and left the characters undeveloped.

A very dark story.

I did not have good feelings during or after this story. The plot was good. The reading was good but the dark, psychological twists leave a bad taste.

Lifetime movie!

Yes, this would make a great Lifetime movie -- the psycho girlfriend, the wacky mother, all the unsuspecting innocents. Who's going to kill whom? Holds your attention while you're listening, but afterwards it's very forgettable.

Intense and Twisted!

Great psychological thriller that kept me guessing. Never expected the ending to take such a turn. Scary to think we can be fooled by those who are closest to us. What a big surprise that was! Although this is not a lengthy novel, the time spent listening really flew by. As for Lucy Price-Lewis performance of each of the characters, she definitely managed to bring all of them to life. It was easy to figure out which one was speaking at any given time. I will now check out other books from the author. 😊👍🏼

Hard to like any character

Although well written, it took me a while to finish this book because I simply couldn’t bond with any of the characters. Both “protagonists“ or self-centered &Impossible to cheer for. It was interesting, nonetheless.

Now this is a psychological suspense mystery! I listened to it straight through. The reader does a very good job. This is British, which I love, intelligent, secretive, not a police officer anywhere.

Die Geschichte ist vom ersten Wort fesselnd und hat keine Längen. Das Ende ist lange nicht vorhersehbar.

language great, story wasn’t a psycho-thriller

I really liked the language and the way in which the characters communicate with each other. I must confess that it was a rather dull outcome of the story itself. What other listeners called twisted and thrilling is what I thought was far fetched and unspectacular. Some things in the story were easy to predict and were hence unsurprising. It might be my taste but I am afraid this book wasn’t as exciting as claimed in the review below.

good Audiobok, not so good story

First, the quality of the Audiobook: the reader is really really good. I enjoyed the book because the reader transferred the emotions really well. The storyline was nothing special, a little bit predictable and a little bit repetitive. But in general it was okay and I enjoyed it.
