The Liar’s House by Carla Kovach
About The Book
Samantha stumbled out of the party and on to a busy street only ten minutes away from her home. But she never made it home…
Seven years after Samantha’s disappearance, on what would have been her thirty-fifth birthday, her best friend Diane is shocked to find a letter addressed to Samantha on her doorstep.
Opening the envelope, Diane pulls out a birthday card and a finger nail painted in dusky pink nail polish. The same shade Samantha always wore. The same shade she was wearing the night she went missing.
When police analyse the nail, they don’t get the result they expected. Instead of linking them to Samantha, the nail belongs to another woman, Jade Ashmore. And Jade was murdered the night before the envelope was delivered….
In Catalan we have a set phrase that says “Embolica que fa fort”; that would translate it more or less as “You haven’t heard the half of it!” and that’s what I felt when I was reading the story. Because when Gina Harte starts investigating a victim that appeared dead after leaving a party, she would never thought that this case could be related to a cold case of a missing woman.
Since the beginning I thought there was a relation from the cold case that the Detective Gina Harte is investigating, some people think that their morals have to be followed for everyone and feel the need to punish the ones that don’t follow their “invisible” rules. As you can imagine I don’t like much the killer or the “invisible” rules it follows, but I am also aware that people always need to intervene at the others life, without asking, only in this case decides to kill instead to talk.
The problem in this case is that the writer did an amazing work and the reader struggles to discover who the real killer is, there are so many possible suspects that the reader would love to put a few of them in prison just in case.
This is the fourth book of the Detective Gina Harte, you can read this book as standalone, but I was a little bit lost in the character information, seems that Gina has a lot of baggage and sometimes I felt that I could not follow entirely her story. She doesn’t seem to look for a partner, but loves to have sporadic blind dates, but she can not forget yet the relation she had with her boss. Complicated, really complicated.
This is a quick read; interesting, twisted and addictive that you’ll fall into the web since the first page, really!
