THE GOOD LIAR
by Laura Caldwell

Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Suspense

RT Rating

Well plotted and fast moving, this story engages the reader's interest and curiosity from the first page. The switches in viewpoint -- from first person to omniscient -- jar somewhat initially, but once you make the adjustment, the device adds significantly to the suspense.

Since her divorce, Chicago accountant Kate Livingston has been drifting through life -- rather than living it. It's not until her best friend, Liza Kingsley, arranges a blind date with businessman Michael Waller that Kate emerges from her funk. The two hit it off -- to Kate's amazement and Liza's -- and marry. Michael's preparing to open an exclusive nightclub in St. Marabel, Quebec, so Kate agrees
to relocate.

It isn't long until Kate's wondering
if she's made a mistake -- and questioning what's going on in a tres
private section of Michael's club. Michael is not who he seems to
be -- and he's not the only one.
It turns out that he's an operative
for a top-secret organization called
the Trust. And there's more at stake than Kate can possibly fathom.
