The Liar's Girl
The Liar's Girl | Catherine Ryan Howard
45 posts | 55 read | 40 to read
Her first love confessed to five murders. But the truth was so much worse. Dublin's notorious Canal Killer, Will Hurley, is ten years into his life sentence when the body of a young woman is fished out of the Grand Canal. Though detectives suspect they are dealing with a copycat, they turn to Will for help. He claims 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 the last decade abroad, putting her shattered life in Ireland far 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.

This was my first Catherine Ryan Howard book and it did not disappoint! This book is centered around a serial killer‘s (ex) girlfriend named Alison. The majority of the book is told from her perspective—from the past and the present. I found it to be very engaging and liked the short chapters.

This was my #TBRTarot pick for February. (Choose a book whose author‘s first name begins with C)

CBee Looking forward to this one! 5mo

I only discovered Catherine Ryan Howard about a year ago, but now with this one finished I‘ve already read all her books. She always does something clever with her stories. I enjoyed this but it didn‘t displace 56 Days and Rewind as my favorites.

This was my #DoubleSpin for Feb.

Alison fled to the Netherlands 10 years ago after someone in her life was implicated in a series of murders in Dublin. But now the Garda are asking for her help when similar killings start happening. I enjoyed this CRH backlist book, though I think some of her more recent ones are a bit better. But don‘t read the publisher‘s description—it completely spoils the book.

BarbaraBB I‘m very willing to read her backlist! 2y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

An engaging, slow-burn psychological thriller with a good twist at the end! This is my third book by this author - “56 Days” is my favorite! She reliably delivers mysteries with a creepy atmosphere and a clever plot. 🎧

I've read three of Catherine Ryan Howard's Irish thrillers and really found each of them compelling. I am looking forward to more.

I was fairly invested in the story, but now that it‘s over this book almost feels like a so-so. I think maybe bc this is not rly my genre. Serial killer-detective-victim plots are always a bit repetitive to me, tho I will say this was well written and well thought out, which many aren‘t. If crime novels are your thing, defo go for it.

For some reason I'm just in the mood for easy thrillers right now, and this fit the bill. After her college boyfriend confessed to killing 5 girls ten years ago, she shut herself off from the world. But now, new girls are being murdered with a similar MO. Is it a copycat killer or has he been innocent all along? I was compelled to keep turning the pages and definitely entertained!

Thanks again Elisabeth for giving me a boost onto the Catherine Ryan Howard bandwagon. A very compelling and entertaining thriller. I‘m looking forward to tackling her others.

vivastory This is one of the few by her that I haven't read. I think that her publishers should send us on Litsy some swag, considering the boost in sales we've given her this yr 😅 (edited) 3y

I borrowed this #audiobook from the #Audible Plus catalog. It had an interesting storyline, with more details about the murders and the killer unfolding as the author shifted from past to present and back again. The author clearly noted the narrator and time period for each chapter, so there was no confusion. I would definitely read more by this author.

This is my second book by this author, and while I didn't get sucked in like I did with The Nothing Man, I still found this to be a decent listen/read. Like TNM this also puts you in the head of the serial killer through one of the various POV's...which always ups the creep factor. This author does not shy away from the graphically gory scenes.

A 2019 Edgar nominated mystery. 10 years after locking up a 19 year old college student who confessed to the murders of 5 women, similar murders recur. Is it a copycat or did the police lock up the wrong man 10 years ago? The man locked up as the Canal Killer claims to have information but will only talk to his former girlfriend, who‘s brought back from the Netherlands to assist police with their investigation. Quite the page turner.

Reading this book was a wonderful way to escape what was a very tough week in my neighbourhood. It sucked me right in and it never let up. I really hated to put it down for any length of time. My only complaint is that despite all of the twists and turns, I wasn't really that suprised by the denouement. #willowdalestrong #torontostrong

I‘m spending the morning elbows deep in @bookriot business, and it‘s sufficiently rote for me to get my audiobook on. I usually listen on a higher speed, but the Irish accents are charmingly challenging.

This was quite the gripping, page turning read. It's not the most dramatic but the build up is very good. I liked the flashback to the past. The big scene with the killer was good but seemed a little rushed. The ending was good too and a clever twist that really tied up the whole story.

The past returns with a vengeance in this crime thriller. It was well-written and kept my attention. Only one thing stopped it getting full marks - when the author had the MC do something monumentally stupid near the end. Rating: 4 ⭐️

Thanks to Netgalley and publishers, Atlantic Books/Corvus, for the opportunity to review an ARC.

Today was a good reading day! It was rainy and dreary out and aside from running to my parents for a few hours and some small things at home I started 3 books today! And im loving them all! I'm up to page 94 in one, page 50 in my #lmpbc one, and 38 % done on my kindle one! So stinks that tomorrow is back to work after 10 days off for winter break 😞 and next few weekends are super busy. Wish I could have one day a week like today every week!

1: dog is off to the groomers then chilling out hopefully.
2: I'm 5ft5 or thereabouts.
3: lived in this area all my life.
4: lots like the tagged book.
5: I hate having my picture taken but braved it especially as there are like no pictures of me. My parents both died young but I have lots of photos to remember them and I'd hate for my girls not to have any of me.
