Her first love confessed to five murders… But the truth was so much worse.
Dublin’s notorious Canal Killer is ten years into his life sentence when the body of a young woman is fished out of the Grand Canal.

Will says he has the information the police need, but will only give it to one person – the girl he was dating when he committed his horrific crimes.
Alison Smith has spent a decade building a new life. Having moved abroad, she’s confident that her shattered life in Ireland is finally behind her. But when she gets a request from Dublin imploring her to help prevent another senseless murder, she is pulled back to face the past, and the man, she’s worked so hard to forget.
“The Liar’s Girl is brilliant. [Catherine Ryan Howard has] outdone herself… It’s even better than the Dagger-nominated Distress Signals and that’s saying something!” Michelle Davies, author of Gone Astray and Wrong Place
“The Liar’s Girl is an addictive page-turner… The set-up is horribly believable as we toggle between the past and present lives of two adults reconciling themselves to the consequences of their teenage immaturity. Catherine Ryan Howard ladles out the suspense like spoonfuls of sugar, building to a heady rush of tension – and a heartbreaking final twist in the tale.” Jo Furniss, author of the Amazon bestseller All The Little Children
“Read The Liar’s Girl with the lights on. A thrilling whodunit with a shocking final twist.” A. J. Banner, USA Today and #1 Amazon bestselling author of The Twilight Wife
