Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

How well do you know your family? 

Estranged for a decade, sisters Leslie and Robin must reunite if they are to claim the fortune their father left them. Leslie desperately needs that money, but when she arrives at her sister's apartment, she finds her body instead. Leslie needs another plan. Without Robin, she won't see a penny. 

Mary, an aspiring actress, spends her nights slinging beers at a seedy restaurant. She'd do anything to start her life over. When Leslie offers her a huge sum of money and the chance to be someone else - to be Robin - she takes it. 

But Robin's life isn't as straightforward as Mary thought it would be. And Leslie seems to have secrets and a past of her own.... 

Told from three perspectives: Leslie, Mary, Robin. 

The question is: who is the better liar? 

The Better Liar is clever, dark and addictive - perfect if you loved Gone Girl and Little Deaths.

A bit overlong

The story was promising and had some very good and unexpected twists. But I found myself losing concentration in places - and it didn't seem to matter that I did. Some of the descriptions and inner mental examinations were, to my mind, a little excessive. At the end I couldn't quite decide how I felt about the different characters. I didn't really like any of them as they all seemed manipulative, with some of the motives possibly more altruistic than others. The author's note helped in retrospect as she explained her inspiration for the book. Narration was excellent from all three narrators.

Mmmm

I’ve been told this story is about post partem depression but I didn’t see this story was about that. Thought it was going to be about a murder. Stupid story
