Publisher's Summary

No one deserves to be taken before their time. Do they?

Joe McKee - pillar of the Derry community - is dead. As arrangements are made for the traditional Irish wake, friends and family are left reeling at how cancer could have taken this much-loved man so soon.

But grief is the last thing that Joe’s daughter, Ciara, and step-daughter, Heidi, feel. For they knew the real Joe - the man who was supposed to protect them and did anything but.

As the mourners gather, the police do too, with doubt being cast over whether Joe’s death was due to natural causes. Because the lies that Joe told won’t be taken to the grave after all - and the truth gives his daughters the best possible motive for killing him...

A gripping suspense novel about deadly secrets and lies. The perfect listen for fans of Clare Mackintosh.

Cracker of a thriller!

l loved this book. I listened to it on audible every opportunity I had as it was really un-put-downable! The subject matter was pretty dark and confronting at times, but the author dealt with it in a very sensitive non-salacious way. I've read quite a few of Claire's books and have enjoyed them all. This certainly didn't disappoint.

The Liar's Daughter is fantastic, a great story is brought to life by wonderful narrators. There are emotional scenes which will bring a tear to your eyes. I can't wait to listen to her other books.

A 6* book

Beautifully written, beautifully narrated. It feels wrong to say good things about this devastating, distressing and harrowing book. At times I realised I was actually crying. The book is so deep and very emotional. I loved so many of the well drawn characters, they were all so real (both the good and the bad) and I cared so deeply about many of them! I will miss them and don’t want to let them go. Just brilliant. Thank you to both the author and narrators.

Unforgettable

What a brave and powerful story. A difficult subject matter, dealt with with delicate respect and raw bluntness. I felt every emotion and the characters were so real, I knew them. Narration is great. I loved listening to the familiar lilts of my own accent. Twists and turns and sprinkles of humour throughout a dramatic a dark narrative. Loved it.

A masterpiece

I listened to this audiobook in a single day - I can't remember the last time I heard one which was so compelling and well-performed. Claire Allan writes with heart-wrenching authenticity: the situation is all-too-believable, as are all the characters' responses to it. She writes with a compassionate authority, and while writing about behaviour which has been much-covered both in fiction and factual media, never once does she lapse into cliche or predictability. The tension is sustained to the very end. The dialogue is utterly convincing and natural, thanks to the impressive skills of both writer and narrators. I now feel impatient to read and/or listen to Claire Allen's next work. I'd give this one a score of six stars all round, if I could.
