Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Liar's Room by Simon Lelic, Laura Aikman and Nancy Carrol.

Susanna Fenton has a secret. Fourteen years ago she left her identity behind, reinventing herself as a counsellor and starting a new life. It was the only way to keep her daughter safe.

But everything changes when Adam Geraghty walks into her office. She's never met this young man before - so why does she feel like she knows him?

Adam starts to tell her about a girl. A girl he wants to hurt. And that's when Susanna realises she was wrong.

She doesn't know him.
He knows her.
And the girl he plans to hurt is her daughter.
