Although Claire Allan has at least 8 other novels to her name, I hadn’t come across her until I picked up The Liar’s Daughter in the library this week. This is a fast, suspenseful read told from the perspective of two women – Heidi and Ciara – who both bear scars from the impact Joe McKee had on their childhood. When Joe, who has terminal cancer, is murdered, the question is who killed him? Heidi and Ciara both have motives, but did they do it? A page-turner from start to finish.
