The truth can be a dangerous thing…
When a young boy is thrown from a balcony in a block of flats, DS Grace Allendale witnesses the shocking aftermath of the tragic event. But despite everything, no one will admit to seeing who did it – and the parents will only tell the police that it was an accident.
Determined to bring the perpetrator to justice, Grace must sort the truth from the lies in a case that takes her into the darkest corners of the criminal world – and strikes closer to home than she could have ever imagined…
A gripping and pacey thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat from the moment you turn the first page. The perfect read for fans of Martina Cole.

Hello, there !
it smells like the spring time. I hope you are having a great time. Today is my stop of one terrific blog tour and I am reviewing one very gripping police procedural, written by Mel Sherratt. It is the third book in the series, but I had no problem reading it as a stand-alone book. Many thanks to lovely Sanjana and the amazing team at Avon Books UK for the chance to be part of this blog tour. Don’t forget to visit all the other stops of this amazing blog tour! Enjoy!
A little boy is thrown from a balcony. DS Grace Allendale works on the case. Is it parents’ negligence or simply an accident? But when you scratch the suface, you may not like what you find out. The neighbourhood is a block of flats. Many things happen behind closed doors. And outside in the park. And no one sees a thing. It’s the place where gangs rule.
As the investigation goes, many skeletons come out from the closet. The parents of the little boy obviously hide something, but no one knows what. Their story is simply too perfect. But the mother, Ruby, cried wolf so many times. Maybe it’s time for her to tell the truth this time. To save her children.
Will someone believe her?
Liar, Liar is my second book from this author. I like the way Mel Sherratt writes and tells the story. Like the spider, she carefully knits the web of events, creates the plot with so many twists just to keep you on the edge till the last page. I liked the story, liked the characters. Ruby’s story made me sad, Not just sad, angry too. There was very little about DS Allendale this time. I would like to read more about her. I had a great time reading this book and enjoyed the story. Can’t wait book number four!
