Susanna Fenton has a secret. Fourteen years ago she left her identity behind, reinventing herself as a counsellor and starting a new life. It was the only way to keep her daughter safe.

But everything changes when Adam Geraghty walks into her office. She’s never met this young man before – so why does she feel like she knows him?

Adam starts to tell her about a girl. A girl he wants to hurt. And that’s when Susanna realises she was wrong.

She doesn’t know him.
He knows her.
And the girl he plans to hurt is her daughter.


The Liars Room is one of those books that just grips from the start.

Susanna, a Therapist has a new client…. Adam. She also has a secret and a daughter whom she loves.

Unknown to Susanna, Adam seems to know all about her secret and what happens in her office is a battle of wits between the two and as we get to know each character, the reader soon discovers the dark sides of both of them.

The suspense intensifies gradually, and quite honestly this is a book that scared me. At the beginning I do not know who I felt more fearful for.

The Liars Room has ‘Book of the Year’ written all over it. It is fabulous.

It is a creepy read filled with chilling and disturbing drama, and I for one would love to see a film of this book.

Susanna’s anguish comes across brilliantly and Adam is a conniving and convincing mad man. I loved him.
