No one even knew they were together. Now one of them is dead.

56 DAYS AGO

Ciara and Oliver meet in a supermarket queue in Dublin and start dating the same week COVID-19 reaches Irish shores.

35 DAYS AGO

When lockdown threatens to keep them apart, Oliver suggests they move in together. Ciara sees a unique opportunity for a relationship to flourish without the scrutiny of family and friends. Oliver sees a chance to hide who—and what—he really is.

TODAY

Detectives arrive at Oliver’s apartment to discover a decomposing body inside.

Can they determine what really happened, or has lockdown created an opportunity for someone to commit the perfect crime?



Catherine Ryan Howard was born in Cork, Ireland. Her debut thriller, Distress Signals, was an Irish Times and USA Today bestseller and was short-listed for the Crime Writers Association John Creasey New Blood Dagger and the Irish Crime Novel of the Year. Her second novel, The Liars Girl, was a finalist for the 2019 Edgar Award for Best Novel. She lives in Dublin.


REVIEW:
I saw a lot of the bloggers that I routinely read had raved about this book so I decided to grab a copy.
I'm so glad that I did too! It was a slice of creepiness that I needed. I enjoy a mystery that is a bit of a mind twist, and this was definitely that!
I have one gripe though. 
At times, mostly in the beginning, the viewpoints changed so fast I lost track of what was happening for a hot minute. Then I'd be like okay I see what's happening here... it just bummed me out that the transition between viewpoints wasn't more clear.
Other than that I loved it. I want to read more from this author too!


4.5/5

  1. The book I'm listening to is like that for me. I couldn't keep track of who was who and what their connection was with the other characters. Finally when there was about 3 hrs. left it got easier. I'm almost finished and glad I didn't give up. The twist toward the end was worth all the confusion and I can't wait to see what the ending brings.

    I hope you have a great week!

    1. Those books can be tough to get to the point where it starts to make sense. I'm glad I didn't give up on it, it was a good read. I wonder if your author and mine took the same writing class?! ;-)

      Hope you have a great week as well!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
