How does a mother protect her child from the unknown?
During a visit to a local theatre, four-year-old Chloe Hollis becomes hysterical. But her mother, Mel, doesn’t realise that this is just the beginning of the nightmare. In the coming weeks, Chloe talks of The Tall Man – Of death.
At her wits end, Mel confides in Charles Honeywell, the headmaster at the school where she works. But what Kim doesn’t know is that Charles is linked to what is happening to her daughter.
Will Mel learn the terrible truth? And can she overcome her own tragic past and save her daughter before it’s too late?
The Liar’s Promise is a story of past lives and future torment.
This is the first book that I have read by this author, I own all of his books and have them ready to read and feature on my blog in 2018 but after seeing the reviews coming in for this one I knew it was a book I needed to bump up my to read pile and I am so glad that I did – it is a brilliant book, absolutely gripped me and I was completely hooked until the end, I certainly didn’t want to put it down after I had picked it up!!
The cover immediately drew me in with this one and the blurb had me hooked – the story starts at a great pace and the beginning is brilliant – I was intrigued, creeped out, shocked and alarmed pretty much all at the same time, really wasn’t sure where the story was going to head but I loved the ride you go on to find out just what the author has in store for you!! It is very dark, very twisted and I have to admit I loved it for those very reasons!!
Mel is a character I liked at times and loathed at others, I really just wanted to give her a big shake and to tell her to get a grip for a lot of the book, but for me the main male character was superb – wickedly evil and he quite possibly had more than one screw loose, he really is one of the most disturbed characters I have read about for a good while!
I will be reviewing the authors other books over the next few weeks to feature on my blog so make sure you check back on a regular basis! Easily 5 stars for this one – what a superb story!!
