Your father is a liar. But is he a killer? Even liars tell the truth . . . sometimes.

When sheA??s called to the scene of a murder in Islington, not far from the pub her estranged father still runs, she discovers that Alice Lapaine, a young housewife who didnA??t get out much, has been found strangled.
Cat and her team immediately suspect AliceA??s husband, until she receives a mysterious phone call that links the victim to Maryanne Doyle, a teenage girl who went missing in Ireland eighteen years earlier. The call raises uneasy memories for CatA??her family met Maryanne while on holiday, right before she vanished. Though she was only a child, Cat knew that her charming but dissolute father wasnA??t telling the truth when he denied knowing anything about Maryanne or her disappearance.

"A woman found brutally murdered on the streets of London dredges up Detective Constable Cat Kinsella's long-held suspicions about her own father's involvement with a girl's disappearance years before. Narrator Jane Collingwood's performance of Cat's internal monologues reveals layers of determination, doubt, and vulnerability throughout the inquiry, which includes confrontations her family. As the investigation unfolds, memories from Cat's childhood, muddled by time, fuel her pursuit of the truth. Her professional ethics soon clash with her desire to hide familial connections to the case. Collingwood elicits the emotional heart of the story, supplanting the murder in primary importance with attuned characterizations of the dynamics between law enforcement, family, and suspects. Omissions and misunderstandings lead the young DC to answers listeners may arrive at first. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
