Publisher's summary

Samantha stumbled out of the party and onto a busy street only 10 minutes away from her home. But she never made it home...

Seven years after Samantha’s disappearance, on what would have been her 33rd birthday, her best friend Diane is shocked to find a letter addressed to Samantha on her doorstep.

Opening the envelope, Diane pulls out a birthday card and a finger nail painted in dusky pink nail polish. The same shade Samantha always wore. The same shade she was wearing the night she went missing.

When police analyse the nail, they don’t get the result they expected. Instead of linking them to Samantha, the nail belongs to another woman, Jade Ashmore. And Jade was murdered the night before the envelope was delivered...

The completely addictive new crime thriller from best-selling author Carla Kovach - if you love Lisa Gardner, Robert Bryndza, or Clare Mackintosh, you’ll love The Liar’s House. Gripping from the start - you won’t be able to stop listening.

Critic reviews

"Carla has done it again. She’s written another riveting instalment in what is one of my favourite police series." (Emma’s Biblio Treasures)

"I didn’t get much else done from the time I first picked it up, till the last page was read… one hell of a series." (Nigel Adams Bookworm

Love this series!

Every once in a while I need a fix of something that is an easy read, a bit thrilling, and fast paced. I’ve grown attached to Gina now and will continue with the series.

Tired Plot, Stalled Character Development

I enjoyed the Gina series until about book 4, when I realized how repetitive the books had become. It’s okay that the books use a standard scenario: female cop in charge of a murder case; she has a troubled past and difficult personal relationships exacerbated by her dedication to the job. To avoid the formula getting stale the characters have to develop. They have to deal with their with their problems or be swallowed by them. They need to learn from their mistakes, and to mature. In this series the top cop ignores signs of danger, keep secrets, and looses her cool. She slams doors, kicks and throws things. She doesn’t accept help, unwisely keeps secrets, and turns down love. I’m tired of the characters making the same stupid mistakes. Come on! You know there’s a murderer on the loose. Look out the peephole before you open the door. Come on! You’re lonely, he loves each other, figure out a way to make it work.

It was okay.

Narrator was good but story was slow. I didn’t know the “culprit” until quite close to the end so that was good. Overall, an ok book but I guess I was glad when I finished it so I could move on to a better book.
