The Liar’s Girl

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: February 2018

Duration: 10 hours 27 minutes


2019 Edgar Award nominee for Best Novel

Will Hurley was an attractive, charming, and impressive student at Dublin’s elite St. John’s College—and Ireland’s most prolific serial killer. Having stalked his five young victims, he drowned them in the muddy waters of the Grand Canal. Sentenced to life imprisonment when he was just nineteen, Will is locked away in the city’s Central Psychiatric Hospital.

Freshman Alison Smith moved to the Big Smoke to enroll in St. John’s and soon fell hard for Will Hurley. Her world bloomed … and then imploded when Liz, her best friend, became the latest victim of the Canal Killer—and the Canal Killer turned out to be the boy who’d been sleeping in her bed. Alison fled to the Netherlands and, in ten years, has never once looked back.

When a young woman’s body is found in the Grand Canal, Garda detectives visit Will to see if he can assist them in solving what looks like a copycat killing. Instead, Will tells them he has something new to confess—but there’s only one person he’s prepared to confess it to.

The last thing Alison wants is to be pulled back into the past she’s worked so hard to leave behind. Reluctantly, she returns to the city she hasn’t set foot in for more than a decade to face the man who murdered the woman she was supposed to become.

Only to discover that, until now, Will has left out the worst part of all …

    This was a fun audiobook to listen to - I liked that there were multiple narrators to differentiate different character perspectives and that it kept me guessing.

    I feel the pace of the book was steady. The characters felt real. The ending seemed a little underwhelming, but it was overall good. Might give it another listen some time down the road.

    Great twist on the final solution.

  • Dorte Lassen

    Well, it was certainly not, what I expected. But at the same time, I am not sure, what I expected. It had it's twists and unexpected moments, but it did not push me to the edge of my chair - so to speak - at any point of the story. I was not intrigued in knowing what happens next or who dunnit. It was okay entertainment, but I wouldn't recommend it to my friends.

  • Julie M.

    It was definitely a surprisingly good book. I wasn't quite expecting the way it went...

  • Debra M.

    Love the story!

  • Cassandra J.

    Excellent book! The ending was unexpected and great! I recommend it.

  • Susan P.

    Entire audible from start to finish exciting and kept me entertained.

  • spiritualcat

    Fascinating characters, Vivid settings that you can actually imagine being part of. Most of all thought-provoking and detailed storyline. Definitely twists in the plot I was not expecting.

  • Libby D.

    I hadn't read this author before, but I enjoyed the book a lot. The narration was really good, and the story actually kept me guessing, which is what you want in a mystery. There's a bit of a twist at the very end that I did not see coming, too, so that was a great little surprise...just when you think you know what happened!
