Book cover for Liar by Lesley Pearse

Liar by Lesley Pearse is published by Michael Joseph and is available to purchase in digital, hardcover and audiobook formats.

In a Shepherd’s Bush bedsit, Amelia White dreams of being a reporter. The closest she’s come is selling advertising in the local paper.

Until the fateful day she stumbles on a truly shocking scoop.

Round the corner from her home, she discovers the body of a murder victim, dumped among the rubbish. When the police and reporters descend, Amelia is horrified at the assumptions made and lies soon to be spread about this poor young woman.

Determined to protect the victim from these smears and help her grieving family, she convinces her paper’s editor to allow her to take up her pen and tell the true story.

But when another body is found and the police investigation stalls, Amelia – uncovering new witnesses and suspects in her search for clues – discovers that she may be the only one with any chance of learning the truth and stopping more killings.

If only she can work out who the liar is . . .


I am a big fan of Lesley Pearce and have been lucky to have been given her last few books to review.

Liar is an addictive read and during these worrying times I enjoyed escaping into Lesley Pearce’s storytelling and finished this book the same day I received it. Another great read.

Amelia is a junior reporter for a local paper and discovers her favourite boots on a rubbish pile. However the boots were attached to a body. When another body is found, Amelia is not impressed by the police involvement so she decides to start her own investigations.

Amelia discovers a connection with the bodies found and has to work out who the liar is.

A wonderful read full of twists and turns.

Highly recommended.
