Mel has gone from strength to strength since the release of her first traditionally published novel and the first in this brilliant series, Hush Hush.

Following its publication in October 2018, Hush Hush reached No. 1 in The Bookseller‘s “Heatseeker’s Fiction” charts for an amazing two weeks in a row,  while its sequel, Tick Tock, also quickly rose to fame, reaching No. 4 in the Kindle charts, and hitting No. 5 in “Heatseeker’s Fiction”.

And now, we’re just as excited to welcome the fabulous third book in this incredible series…

The truth can be a dangerous thing…

When a young boy is thrown from a balcony in a block of flats, DS Grace Allendale witnesses the shocking aftermath of the tragic event. But despite everything, no one will admit to seeing who did it – and the parents will only tell the police that it was an accident.

Determined to bring the perpetrator to justice, Grace must sort the truth from the lies in a case that takes her into the darkest corners of the criminal world – and strikes closer to home than she could have ever imagined…

The novel has received multiple 5 star reviews on Goodreads:

“This is another gripping story from Mel Sherratt that I didn’t want to put down from start to finish. I think this is better than the others in this series. It had great characters and plot with lots of twists and turn to keep you engaged through out. 5 stars from me.” Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars

“Liar Liar is a fast-paced and somewhat violent novel in which several strands interlink in an intriguing way; the principal characters are well-depicted and the setting is convincing. Very enjoyable.” Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars

“Liar Liar has one hell of an opening and had my full attention through out. It makes for a tense, nail biting read that was impossible to put down. There were a couple of very unexpected surprises that had my jaw hitting the floor.” Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars
