back on law enforcement and friends alike in a bid to fuel her thirst for vengeance Unlike Never Never and Fifty Fifty, Liar Liar doesn t have the same rural Australian crime fiction feel to it given that the place setting is largely metropolitan but that doesn t detract from the continuity nor the pop culture thrills Patterson is renowned the Candice Fox stamp is well entrenched in this story and Liar Liar is all the better for it The thing that really stands out for me is the ending as is set an interesting new direction for the series.My rating 3.5 stats Liar Liar sets a new direction for the series while providing the supporting cast of characters with enough depth and connection to the protagonist to maintain a number of future installments flag 42 likesLike see review View all 9

instalment of the Harriet Blue series Picking up the action when the previous novel ended, the reader is thrust into a fast paced crime thriller that has as many twists as it does lingering questions With the revelation that Regan Banks is the actual Georges River Killer, it is time to capture Australia s most elusive serial killer in short order While Harriet Harry Blue has always professed that her brother, Sam, is innocent, it was only after he was murdered behind bars and the evidence came to light that anyone believed her With Banks on the lam, Blue has taken it upon herself to find him alone and put a bullet in his head in an act of vigilante justice, while lurking in the shadows and away from her colleagues With the Task Force turning its attention to finding Banks, they must also worry about Blue, hoping she will resurface and let the authorities bring the killer in to answer for his crimes With Banks in hiding, he is able to ascertain Blue s personnel file, which includes much of her backstory from a life in foster care Reaching out to Blue, Banks takes her around southern Australia to different locations of people important to her, leaving bodies as a calling card Meanwhile, Blue s friend and fellow cop, Edward Whittacker, has been given a new partner as they hunt down the likes of Banks Vada Reskit is a rookie detective with a great deal of gumption, perfect to help with the investigation, though there is something about her that leaves Whittacker a little concerned As the case pushes forward and the Sydney Police turn Blue into a criminal on the run, there is little hope for a peaceful resolution to all of this While Banks and Blue continue their game of cat and mouse, all that remains sure is that there will only be one survivor and a lot of blood Patterson and Fox continue this successful partnership, crafting a series that has all the elements of a good crime thriller Perfect for series fans and those who love a crime novel they will be able to devour in short order, as they revel in an ending that no one could have expected.In my long reading career, I have spent much time with the books of James Patterson Some will know that I have a love hate relationship with the author, who would appear to use his name to sell books, rather than focussing on quality the James Patterson Syndrome While that may be the case, Patterson does collaborate with a number of authors who seem to have a strong ability to create quality work, thereby showing that not all pieces that bear the Patterson name need be duds Candice Fox is one such author, who is a well established author in her own right that I have come to read and enjoy As Patterson continues to churn out novels faster than I do reviews, those involving Fox should not be lumped with many sub par pieces of writing Those familiar with this series will know all about Harriet Blue and her dedication to clear her brother s name, as well as bring the actual killer to justice Her backstory is riddled with emotional land mines from a life in foster care, which is handled effectively so as to draw the reader closer to her, always wondering if there are new pieces that might better explain the protagonist s life This novel turns the focus of Blue s character development to finding Banks and ensuring he receives the punishment he has coming to him The reader will likely enjoy the rollercoaster of emotions Blue exhibits as she tries to stay off the radar of authorities while turning this search into a vendetta fuelled by personal injustice Banks is another character who has taken some of the spotlight, showing off what may have driven him to kill so freely and without a second thought The reader can, should they choose, find crumbs of compassion for the man, though he is crafted as a wonderful antagonist and one that can be hated with ease A handful of others shape the story as it turns from a manhunt into a desperate search for a cop who has lost her ability to think rationally This gripping storyline will keep the reader flipping the pages of each short chapter and likely polishing off the novel in short order Patterson has kept the cliffhanger formula to drive the reader to push onwards while Fox s Australian influence can be seen throughout the plot Well worth the time invested, though it should not take a reader with a gap of time in their schedule long to complete this intense thriller.Kudos, Mr Patterson and Madam Fox, for keeping this series moving How a BookShot short story could have morphed into such a series, I could not have predicted from the outset I hope your collaborative work continues Love hate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Book for All Seasons, a different sort of Book

this thrilling new chapter of Harriet Blue s life, she transforms into quite the outlaw as she frantically works to ensnare a dangerous serial killer This is also the same man she deems responsible for her brother s death It is a life and death fight to the bone for Detective Harry Blue in Liar Liar.Detective Harriet Blue is sure in her determination to hunt down Regan Banks, a vicious serial killer, who Harry holds personally responsible for the recent shock loss of her brother Sam Harry takes a dangerous route in pursuit of Regan, she is AWOL from her law enforcement position in the sex crimes department Harry feels that in detaching herself from the police force, she has the best chance possible to capture and end Regan s life But Regan is an elusive figure, who is always one step ahead of Harry Harry knows what is at stake in her hunt for Regan, but she doesn t care But, this unstoppable murderer is will make Harry work hard and it is a chase that has the potential to end in deadly circumstances.The third book in Harry Blue series, Liar Liar, proved to be my favourite so far of the series I really enjoyed the fact that Patterson and Fox decided to place Harry on the wrong side of the law Her walk on the wild side, in her vengeance fuelled pursuit of Regan Banks, her brother s killer, was explosive This is a full narrative, defined by plenty of action, twists and violence The pace doesn t lag at any point at all, thanks to the Patterson style format of short and sharp chapters It certainly ensured that I zipped through the pages of Liar Liar in record time, I read it in just one sitting Liar Liar is one of those thrillers that induces the response of just one chapter It doesn t take long before you realise that you have finished the book Liar Liar is a compulsive and extremely fast read.In this instalment, we get of Harry, which I liked very much As I settled into Liar Liar, I developed a stronger attachment to Harry character her determination, girt, fearless nature, loyalty and sense of retribution In Liar Liar, we see a deeper side to Harry as she spends time musing on her own upbringing, relationships, personal flaws and decisions This is standout feature of the book and if you are a fan of Harry Blue, Liar Liar will leave you with a satisfied feeling Likewise, I found myself even interested in the supporting cast of Liar Liar I speculated over the state of Whitt s relationship with Harry Then there is Tox and Pops, loyal supporters of Harry s cause Most of all, Harry s connection to the villan of the tale, Regan Banks, throws up plenty of questions and hidden facts, especially linking to Harry s brother Sam Liar Liar is also a story of grief, as Harry s relentless pursuit to hunt down Regan and personally put an end to this deranged psychopath s life defines this novel.The setting has shifted in Liar Liar, while the previous two books in this series were based in remote Australia, Liar Liar is based in the city and along Australia s coastline I think it works for this novel, as this is about Harry s cat and mouse chase with Regan The cat and mouse chase itself was played out well in Liar Liar Patterson and Fox serve up plenty of shocks and violent scenes There was darkness about this book that I appreciated, which I put down to the influence of Fox A few times I cast my mind back to Fox s first book Hades There were definitely echoes of the Archer Bennett series in this book Fox s propensity to examine the dark side of human nature and the psychology of the mind is always illuminating I consumed the scenes that fleshed up Regan s background and the conditions that helped give rise to the despicable man he becomes.So I come to the cliff hanger of Liar Liar and wow, the end issued the book with a complete flip over I m going to admit that I didn t predict this direction at all But, I think it is a wise and open choice made by both authors, as it allows for Harriet s future to be explored in another facet.I recommend Liar Liar and the Harry Blue series to all crime fiction and thriller fans I wish to thank Penguin Books Australia for providing me with a free copy of this book for review purposes.Liar Liar, is book 90 of the Australian Women Writers Challenge flag 20 likesLike see review View all 4 comments Aug 23, 2018 Julie Garner rated it it was amazing review of another edition

to keep pulling the string that she is chasing Harry is a good person, trying so hard to protect people and she is doing it in the only way she knows how Will it be the right way or not Morals come in to play within this book do morals trump all or do you sometimes have to do something you don t want to do in order to get the result you are chasing.I love that in this book Harry is questioning her every move and thought She is a superhero cop reduced to the same thoughts and feelings as every other person and becomes a very real and relatable person She will challenge your thinking and your feelings with what she says and does in this book.Liar Liar is great for all fans of Patterson and Fox and anyone who loves a good game of cat and mouse where you are not always sure who is going to

to kill through their phone conversations I was surprised to see a few twists in this book since it was mostly a crime novel, but it made ti even better so I m not really complaining Overall it was a

I don t want to give too much away but Harry is angry and doesn t pull any punches in her cat and mouse game with Regan She wants him dead at all costs and she wants to be the one to ensure Regan is put into the ground so he cannot kill any.Regan sends Harry out to rural areas, hinting to her where his next victim or victims will be, playing mind games with Harriet which take her to the edge of her physical and mental strengths Not letting sleeping dogs lie, Regan finds all of the skeletons in Harriet Blue s closet and brings up her childhood, past cases and the hell of any and all anguish Harry has had to suffer in her life.Harriet does not let anyone get in her way in her quest for death and while she is on the hunt for the one man she knows she must kill she is not alone Hot on her heels are those trying to bring her in and arrest her as well as friends like Whitt and Tox who want to get to her before she does something she may later regret.What Harriet doesn t realise is that her enemy also has some help and in his quest to peel back Harry s layers and show her what she s really made of Regan must continue to be the badness that Harry must destroy once and for all.The ending was a good one and now I m really looking forward to the next instalment of this series, Patterson and Fox keeping the rhythm of this book at a hard run and writing a book that is thrilling and engaging the whole way through.The character of Harriet Blue has been fully fleshed out now and I have nothing but sorrow for the shattered soul that she really is and I feel despair and empathy for

is the third book in the series written with Candice Fox I haven t read Never Never nor Fifty Fifty before I started this book Though I always recommend reading a series in order, this is a Patterson book and you never need to read his books in order, because as soon as you start this you already know what has happened in the previous books and you get to know all the characters on a personal level Patterson has such a way with words And please don t think that the first two chapters are spent explaining the previous books and the characters and how they all got this point Nope Patterson literally has you jumping straight into the story and finding out about the characters as you go So if you ever come across a Patterson book and it s the 15th in a series, don t put it back, imagine all his books are stand along but yet wonderfully tied together Trust me when I say but the book.Liar Liar is a book based in Australia Yasss and is centred around Detective Harriet Blue who is on the run from the police in the hopes that she will capture and kill Regan Banks The man that killed her brother Living out of her backpack, with taunting calls from Reagan, Blue must find a way to capture Regan before he can harm those she loves and those that has spent her life and career protecting Interested yet One of my favourite things about Patterson books is that he writes from multiple points of view and can pull it off smoothly Each chapter is based from either the perspective of Blue, Reagan or Blue s cop buddy Pops with a few added extra as well Throughout the book you spend your time dying to get back to Blue s chapter to find out how she is going while also dying to get back to the Reagan chapters to get in the mind of the serial killer Brilliant I can never fault Patterson s delivery of making every character important and interesting.Not only are the characters amazing but you also get a glimpse into their weaknesses, strengths, fears and what they love I have never found a character boring or willing myself to skip a chapter to get to the next point of view And if you told me to pick a favourite Well I couldn t I love them all Though this book was written by two people, Patterson and Fox, you never see a lot of Fox s writing style seep through and I wouldn t be able to tell you where one writer stooped and another continues The whole book flowed smoothly and boy was it amazing.I always look forward to reading Patterson because this guy does not disappoint I loved Liar Liar and couldn t flaw it if I tried Great writing Engaging and brilliant characters

career away in her hunt for the man that killed her brother.What else is this about What makes someone evil What makes someone succumb to the darkness in them That s the question Harry needs to answer if she s to survive Regan BlackWhen last we left Harriet Blue, her brother, Sam, was dead and the real Georges River killer, and Regan, the man who framed Sam was on the run Now, in Liar Liar, so is Harry She is hunting Regan, determined to kill him for what he did to Sam, while there s a task force hunting her, determined to bring her in There is one small consolation in that her partner Whitt, and her mentor and commander Pops, are trying to help her, trying to figure out where Regan is going next.But here s the thing Regan is calling her and telling her exactly where he s going next And Harry knows she s walking into his traps, but she can t not, because he killed Sam, and all she has left is her revenge.Harry and ReganRegan is a psychopath, one that latched on to Sam years ago, and without Sam, latches on to Harry He calls her, tells her he wants to unravel her, much like Sam putting him in prison did stripped him down to his core and forced him to admit who he was to himself.He sees a kinship in Harry, and to her horror, she begins to wonder if he might be right that at her core she might be as cold and ruthless as he is That s the question she s faced with as he begins to hunt down her past, finding the people in her professional and personal life that meant something to her so he can taken them from her She is always one step behind, one step to not being good enough and as she chases him across Sydney, her frustration grows as does her concern for who he might be after next.Whitt and PopsAs much as the book focuses on Harry and Regan, we re given insight into Pops and Whitt too as they navigate the political minefield of a taskforce that on some level has already determined Harry is guilty.Pops cuts a swathe through the bullshit, putting his career at risk in an effort to keep Harry safe, while Whitt is out in the field trying to be the first one to find Harry, and not some trigger happy minion.They never doubt her, instead all they have is concern for her safety after she gets through this But what they forget is that they too are in danger, and no necessarily from Regan If anything Liar Liar is fast paced than the previous ones in this series, but every word, every chapter matters I found myself turning pages faster and faster as the book progressed, eating up these words in an effort to find out what happens to Harry.The book succeeds in unravelling Harry, though because of, and not because of Regan at the same time I think it s her love for her brother that unravelled her, that stripped her back to her most basic because I m not entirely sure she knows who she is if she s not Sam s sister The series has made it clear how much they mean to each other, how much they rely on each other, so I think taking him away is the worst thing that could happen to her.There s a cliffhanger of course, but not one that I expected in the least Candice Fox and James Patterson are taking Harry into uncharted territory or maybe, this is the end for Harriet Blue Who knows All I can is for sure, I am thoroughly satisfied with this ending for Harry flag 2 likesLike see review Dec 05, 2018 Sonia Cristina rated it liked it review of another

thriller based television series the legal comedy drama Rake and the increasingly addictive Wanted and police procedural films Mystery Road and Goldstone, to name but two.I m seeing an increase in crime novels from the land down under as well, and the point at the tip of that spear seems to be an author named Candice Fox James Patterson, who not only has his fingers on the pulse of genre literature but often seems to be the heartbeat itself, has teamed up with Fox for a series of books featuring a rough edged detective named Harriet Blue The newly published LIAR LIAR is the third installment not only is it my favorite entry so far, it s one of the best thrillers you will read this year.Your enjoyment of LIAR LIAR will not be diminished if you are unfamiliar with NEVER NEVER or FIFTY FIFTY, the first two books in the series Patterson and Fox do a great job of catching newcomers up with what has gone before, dropping history into the narrative without stopping the action And yes, there is plenty of action The plot is fairly straightforward without a lot of sidetracking Harriet, an extremely competent sex crimes detective attached to the West Sydney police department, has gone totally rogue in her pursuit of notorious serial killer Regan Banks It was Banks who framed Harriet s brother and then caused his death That is all Harriet needs to justify her unauthorized hunt.The police are after Harriet, who is well aware of the pursuit Part of the intrigue of LIAR LIAR is watching Harriet evade the manhunt for her, utilizing her knowledge of department procedure combined with her own canny survival skillset Banks leads Harriet on quite the chase, murdering people from her past and dropping enigmatic clues as to who will be next, taunting her all along He wants her to catch up with him, but not until he is ready, as he fully intends for her to be his last victim.Meanwhile, the new head of Harriet s unit is obsessed with catching her, even as Harriet has some assistance from her friends both within and outside of law enforcement It is a heady chase indeed, made even so when the hunt for Harriet goes public The climax is everything you want it to be, but the actual conclusion begins a new plot string that will have you counting the months, weeks and days until the fourth and supposedly final volume in the series is publishedAR LIAR is what used to be called a ripping yarn, and I consider that to be high and loud praise Patterson and Fox perfectly balance plot, pacing and characterization throughout the book, leaving the reader wanting of everything, particularly the rough and enigmatic Tox Barnes, a secondary character who deserves a stint as a headliner on his own.Reviewed by Joe Hartlaub flag Like see review Dec 19, 2018

use her fists Without giving away spoilers if you havn t read the previous two books, Harry is on a mission, determined to find the serial killer Regan Banks The only problem is she doesn t have the backing of her police colleagues any, who now view her as a vigilante She is as much a target for them as Regan is Harry s determination to catch Regan has her living on the streets and hitchhiking her way across the state, following his commands via text message Just when she thought she was getting somewhere, she manages to get herself into even worse scenarios Her raw vulnerability felt like natural progression in the series.Her partner Whitt was also unravelling Sadly, he succumbed to his drug and alcohol addiction and lost his OCD obsession with cleanliness and order The good guys were crumbling whilst the bad guys were winning It was a joy to read However view spoiler Regan killing his parents was so obvious Of course his records were sealed because of something he did, not for something that was done to him When he talked about being abused in jail, he described the experience as being a learning one, not necessarily emotionally painful It didn t bring back bad memories from childhood And it would have been a little cliche to say he became a serial killer rapist because he was abused as a child It s much scary when there s no reason His parents loved him and he still became a psycho I have to admit, the well was a nice touch.Also, Vada was obviously suss I wasn t sure 100% how she was connected to the case, but her blind eye to Whitt s drug taking sent up red flags for me Harry would have pegged her in an instant hide spoiler I can t wait for the next one in this series Harry s fall from grace has been epic Where can this story possibly go from here Prison

Harriet away James Patterson and Candice Fox did that for the main characters of this book, cop by day for most haunted, tortured souls by night Everyone battling their own inner deamons this book will come as a slap in the face for most of us who thought we knew something about these characters from the last two books I loved the Women s murder club books, could not get enough of them but now I have a new heroin and impossibly enough she has taken my love of the women in the women s murder club away and placed it directly in the heart of Australia I eagerly await each book about Harriett and now that I was left on another cliff hanger it will be a long wait I m not sure how to sell this to another reader because I m beyond biased about this series and James Patterson I avoided him for a long time because he was just another band wagon author, or so I thought, but there is a clear reason why he is and I m one of his beloved followers whooping and hollering as he guides us down each deranged plot line he has If you like books that are fast paced, look no further If you like female leads, well honey you ve found it like a rare wine If you love psychological thrillers, then hold onto your seat because you re always in for a wild ride This book is all of those wrapped into one and it is a fun ride Me being me is skeptical of the next installment of this series because how can it get any better but the band wagon me is furiously screaming bring it on with the next I m hoping as fast as James Patterson spits out book the next won t be to far ahead of us In a nut shell, go pick this series up and read it I m not going to recap this book in my review, not my style generally the summaries do a mighty fine job at it and because I know many people love to find out what the hype is about so if a recap the entire story for you here why would you ever go read the book Not my style but this is Read it, you ll thank me after you do flag Like see review Aug 31, 2018 Megan

Revenge Once again we find ourselves back with Harriet Blue in her third instalment I love Harriet Blue, both as a series and a character and was eager to get into this, Patterson having left the previous offering on a cliffhanger, as I would expect mind you Liar Liar feels different to the other Harriet Blue books, Harriet finds herself in a different situation and on the other side of the law, she is even desperate than usual and finds herself battling without her friends by her side.The plot for Liar Liar is good and there is a lot going on but this is lacking in the excitement stakes Although I enjoyed reading this, I was not completely gripped by it and I did think it was missing some twists to spice the plot up.What this plot misses in shocks, it than makes up for with an emotional, revenge filled plot We already know a lot about Harriet Blue but we learn even about her, Sam and Regan in this, about all the characters really, and this only deepened my relationship with them As well as this it was great to catch up with Harriet s colleagues and friend and to see how they all get roped into the Regan Harriet chase.A Patterson book would not be a Patterson book without an ambiguous ending that leaves you wanting This is definitely no different, I am desperate to know what happens next in Harriet Blue s life and can only hope it will not be long before we follow her again Liar Liar is a good instalment in the Harriet Blue series that sees Harriet in a whole new, dangerous situation Although this is somewhat lacking in the thrilling stakes, I still thoroughly
