Liar by authorĀ K. L. Slater is a gripping psychological thriller that willĀ have you rearranging your schedule and burning dinner unless you are far more disciplined than I am. For me, it was far and away the best of this genre I’ve either read or listened to in a very long time. From the opening chapter which the author aptly entitles “The End”, listeners will be mesmerized by this story of love, hate, obsession, madness,Ā and evil. Ben Jukes is a young widower with two small children. He has a very supportive family who’ve helped him work through his grief to the point where he’s able to enter a relationship with Amber Carr, a rather mysterious woman he meets by accident. Sounds pretty tame, right? Don’t be fooled by the benign language in the book description. You will look into the eyes of pure evil and be unsure of what you’re seeing. Donā€™t Ā get too comfortable because the author reveals “The End” so quickly. After that chilling chapter, Ms. Slater starts at “The Beginning” and unravels the tightly woven plot with all its twists and turns. TheĀ phrase that immediately popped into my head the moment I finished listening was “Well, I never!” I’m sure that will clearly reflect my Southern roots, but it was something my sweet grandmother used to say all the time when she heard something so far outside the realm of her imagination she just couldn’t think of an appropriate response. I guess it’s the old-fashioned equivalent of OMG.

Liar is an electrifying drama and narrator Lucy Price-Lewis gives a stellar performance of all the characters.Ā She’s equally believable as she runs the gamut from sweetness and light to dark and dirty. Your heart will break when she speaks as the children in this convoluted tale.

There are no good guys in Liar unless you want to count the children who are pawns in a devious plan gone terribly awry. Even though their hapless father Ben isn’t a bad guy, he’s a pathetic weakling without whose assistance two women with equally pathological obsessions might have been stopped before “The End” takes place. I highly recommend my thriller addicts carve out some time to listen to this one and, by the way, try not to burn dinner!

About K.L. Slater

After years of trying to get published and never getting further than the slush pile, I went back to university at the age of 40 where I studied for an English & Creative Writing degree followed by an MA in Creative Writing. Although I also worked full-time during the five years I studied at university, the courses gave me the time and space to try different writing and increased my confidence and belief in my writing. Before I graduated from my MA, I had secured representation with my agent, Clare Wallace, at the Darley Anderson Literacy, TV and Film Agency and had my first book deal.

My first adult psychological thriller for Bookouture is called ā€˜Safe with Meā€™ and it actually started life as my dissertation on my English & Creative Writing degree. The creepy voice of Anna came to me strong and insistent . . . she wanted to be written, she wouldnā€™t go away.

I live in Nottingham with my husband, Mac. Between us we have three grown-up kids; my daughter, Francesca and Macā€™s sons Nathan and Jake.

I also write multi-award winning YA fiction under the name Kim Slater.
