The Girl Who Lied
When Chief Maggie Riley finds a body one stormy night, she’s convinced a terrified teenage girl she glimpses at the scene must know something… but can the girl be trusted?
Maggie, once a big-city detective, lost everything when her little brother went missing. Heartbroken, she’s never stopped searching for him, even if that’s left her with no option other than to become the underpaid police chief of Coyote Cove, a tiny, run-down logging town in a remote corner of the Maine woods.
But when Maggie discovers a murdered man discarded on the side of the road one dark, wild night, she is plunged back into the investigative world she’d left behind. And when Heather—a recent high-school dropout—emerges shivering from the dense forest nearby, Maggie is certain the girl is hiding something. But why won’t Heather talk?
With everyone, even her own deputy, working against her, it seems no one’s willing to tell Maggie the truth. Then a terrifying kidnapping turns everything Maggie thought she knew about the case on its head. Desperate to atone for the past, Maggie would do everything to save another innocent life. But will it be enough? Or will the most twisted killer she’s ever encountered remain one step ahead of her, for good…?
A totally addictive crime thriller packed with suspense. If you love Lisa Regan, Louise Penny and Melinda Leigh, you’ll love The Girl Who Lied.
This is the first book in a new series featuring Chief Maggie Riley, followed by Their Angel’s Cry and The Shadow Girl.
