A new spine-tingling thriller from the author of The New Neighbors that takes place over the course of a therapy session, in which neither patient nor therapist are who they claim to be.
Two liars. One room. No way out.
Susanna Fenton has a secret. Fourteen years ago she left her identity behind, reinventing herself as a therapist and starting a new life. It was the only way to keep her daughter safe.
But when a young man, Adam Geraghty, walks into her office, claiming he needs Susanna’s help but asking unsettling questions, she begins to fear that her secret has been discovered.
Who is Adam, really? What does he intend to do to Susanna?
And what has he done to her daughter?
THE LIAR’S ROOM is a dark and unsettling thriller about a woman’s secret past that returns to haunt her.
Susanna is a therapist and mother to 14-year old Emily. Years ago she ran away from her old life after a devastating incident, hoping no one would find out. For 14 years her old identity stayed hidden, until a session with a new client named Adam threatens to destroy everything.
This was a fast-paced, enjoyable (yet disturbing) book that put me on edge. Who is Adam really? What is Susanna is hiding? I may have jumped ahead to get a quick peek because the suspense was killing me! Both main characters are downright flawed, so often times I wasn’t sure who I should sympathize with. To me the ending was sad yet satisfying, probably the best case scenario considering. I couldn’t put this one down!
Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
So I take it you could finally sympathize with one of the characters? It sounds very good, but I’m like you….I need to like at least one of the characters! (or at least care about them)
Yep, I could definitely sympathize with everyone involved to some extent. ♥
Hmmm…I saw something about this book recently and wondered if I should try it. Glad to hear your experience. I’ll probably get to it at some point, but I don’t think I’ll rush. I’m kind of reading the psycho thriller books more sparingly these days.
