About LIAR

1970s, West London, a time of 3-day weeks, power cuts and dustmen strikes: Amelia White has always dreamed of being a reporter so when she starts a new job selling advertising space in the local newspaper, she’s one step closer to realising her ambitions. But then she stumbles on a shocking scoop. Heading to work one morning she discovers the body of a woman, dumped among the rubbish piled high on the street. When the police and reporters descend, Amelia is horrified at the lies being spread about the victim. Determined to find the truth, she convinces her editor to let her report on the story. But then another body is found... and another... and Amelia discovers that she may be the key to finding the truth and stopping more killings. If only she can work out who the liar is...

About Lesley Pearse

Lesley Pearse was told as a child that she had too much imagination for her own good. She left home at 15 and headed to London where she worked her way through many jobs – from corsetry sales, to musician’s muse, to nanny; from gift shop owner to dressmaker – finally finding her true vocation when she became a published author age 49. A natural storyteller, Lesley has lived an eventful life but is also inspired by others’ stories of courage and adversity, often giving voice to women lost in history and people damaged by their childhood experiences. She is passionate about her research and her stories have taken her far and wide: from Alaska to the Crimea. Lesley now lives in Torquay in Devon where she loves to spend time with her grandchildren.
