Still with me? Ok... My Review: The third installment in the Detective Harriet Blue series sees the former sex crimes detective living on the lam in pursuit of her brothers killer. Regan Banks has taken everything from Harriet that she loved. Having grown up being bounced from foster home to foster home during her formative years; a result of being a difficult and somewhat dangerous child, the bond she shared with her brother, Sam, has been severed forcing Harriet to go rogue, turning her back on law enforcement and friends alike in a bid to fuel her thirst for vengeance. Unlike Never Never and Fifty Fifty, Liar Liar doesn't have the same rural Australian crime fiction feel to it given that the place-setting is largely metropolitan but that doesn't detract from the continuity nor the pop culture thrills Patterson is renowned; the Candice Fox stamp is well entrenched in this story and Liar Liar is all the better for it. The thing that really stands out for me is the ending as is set an interesting new direction for the series. My rating: 3.5 stats. Liar Liar sets a new direction for the series while providing the supporting cast of characters with enough depth and connection to the protagonist to maintain a number of future installments.

Picking up the action when the previous novel ended, the reader is thrust into a fast-paced crime thriller that has as many twists as it does lingering questions. With the revelation that Regan Banks is the actual Georges River Killer, it is time to capture Australia’s most elusive serial killer in short order. While Harriet ‘Harry’ Blue has always professed that her brother, Sam, is innocent, it was only after he was murdered behind bars and the evidence came to light that anyone believed her. With Banks on the lam, Blue has taken it upon herself to find him alone and put a bullet in his head in an act of vigilante justice, while lurking in the shadows and away from her colleagues. With the Task Force turning its attention to finding Banks, they must also worry about Blue, hoping she will resurface and let the authorities bring the killer in to answer for his crimes. With Banks in hiding, he is able to ascertain Blue’s personnel file, which includes much of her backstory from a life in foster care. Reaching out to Blue, Banks takes her around southern Australia to different locations of people important to her, leaving bodies as a calling card. Meanwhile, Blue’s friend and fellow cop, Edward Whittacker, has been given a new partner as they hunt down the likes of Banks. Vada Reskit is a rookie detective with a great deal of gumption, perfect to help with the investigation, though there is something about her that leaves Whittacker a little concerned. As the case pushes forward and the Sydney Police turn Blue into a criminal on the run, there is little hope for a peaceful resolution to all of this. While Banks and Blue continue their game of cat and mouse, all that remains sure is that there will only be one survivor and a lot of blood. Patterson and Fox continue this successful partnership, crafting a series that has all the elements of a good crime thriller. Perfect for series fans and those who love a crime novel they will be able to devour in short order, as they revel in an ending that no one could have expected. In my long reading career, I have spent much time with the books of James Patterson. Some will know that I have a love/hate relationship with the author, who would appear to use his name to sell books, rather than focussing on quality (the James Patterson Syndrome). While that may be the case, Patterson does collaborate with a number of authors who seem to have a strong ability to create quality work, thereby showing that not all pieces that bear the Patterson name need be duds. Candice Fox is one such author, who is a well-established author in her own right that I have come to read and enjoy. As Patterson continues to churn out novels faster than I do reviews, those involving Fox should not be lumped with many sub-par pieces of writing. Those familiar with this series will know all about Harriet Blue and her dedication to clear her brother’s name, as well as bring the actual killer to justice. Her backstory is riddled with emotional land mines from a life in foster care, which is handled effectively so as to draw the reader closer to her, always wondering if there are new pieces that might better explain the protagonist’s life. This novel turns the focus of Blue’s character development to finding Banks and ensuring he receives the punishment he has coming to him. The reader will likely enjoy the rollercoaster of emotions Blue exhibits as she tries to stay off the radar of authorities while turning this search into a vendetta fuelled by personal injustice. Banks is another character who has taken some of the spotlight, showing off what may have driven him to kill so freely and without a second thought. The reader can, should they choose, find crumbs of compassion for the man, though he is crafted as a wonderful antagonist and one that can be hated with ease. A handful of others shape the story as it turns from a manhunt into a desperate search for a cop who has lost her ability to think rationally. This gripping storyline will keep the reader flipping the pages of each short chapter and likely polishing off the novel in short order. Patterson has kept the cliffhanger formula to drive the reader to push onwards while Fox’s Australian influence can be seen throughout the plot. Well worth the time invested, though it should not take a reader with a gap of time in their schedule long to complete this intense thriller. Kudos, Mr. Patterson and Madam Fox, for keeping this series moving. How a BookShot (short story) could have morphed into such a series, I could not have predicted from the outset. I hope your collaborative work continues. Love/hate the review?

Detect *https://mrsbbookreviews.wordpress.com The dynamic writing duo of James Patterson and Candice Fox, return with the bold third addition to the Harriet (Harry) Blue series, titled Liar Liar. In this thrilling new chapter of Harriet Blue’s life, she transforms into quite the outlaw as she frantically works to ensnare a dangerous serial killer. This is also the same man she deems responsible for her brother’s death. It is a life and death fight to the bone for Detective Harry Blue in Liar Liar. Detective Harriet Blue is sure in her determination to hunt down Regan Banks, a vicious serial killer, who Harry holds personally responsible for the recent shock loss of her brother Sam. Harry takes a dangerous route in pursuit of Regan, she is AWOL from her law enforcement position in the sex crimes department. Harry feels that in detaching herself from the police force, she has the best chance possible to capture and end Regan’s life. But Regan is an elusive figure, who is always one step ahead of Harry. Harry knows what is at stake in her hunt for Regan, but she doesn’t care. But, this unstoppable murderer is will make Harry work hard and it is a chase that has the potential to end in deadly circumstances. The third book in Harry Blue series, Liar Liar, proved to be my favourite so far of the series. I really enjoyed the fact that Patterson and Fox decided to place Harry on the wrong side of the law. Her walk on the wild side, in her vengeance fuelled pursuit of Regan Banks, her brother’s killer, was explosive. This is a full narrative, defined by plenty of action, twists and violence. The pace doesn’t lag at any point at all, thanks to the Patterson style format of short and sharp chapters. It certainly ensured that I zipped through the pages of Liar Liar in record time, I read it in just one sitting! Liar Liar is one of those thrillers that induces the response of ‘just one more chapter’. It doesn’t take long before you realise that you have finished the book! Liar Liar is a compulsive and extremely fast read. In this instalment, we get more of Harry, which I liked very much. As I settled into Liar Liar, I developed a stronger attachment to Harry character; her determination, girt, fearless nature, loyalty and sense of retribution. In Liar Liar, we see a deeper side to Harry as she spends time musing on her own upbringing, relationships, personal flaws and decisions. This is standout feature of the book and if you are a fan of Harry Blue, Liar Liar will leave you with a satisfied feeling. Likewise, I found myself even more interested in the supporting cast of Liar Liar. I speculated over the state of Whitt’s relationship with Harry. Then there is Tox and Pops, loyal supporters of Harry’s cause. Most of all, Harry’s connection to the villan of the tale, Regan Banks, throws up plenty of questions and hidden facts, especially linking to Harry’s brother Sam. Liar Liar is also a story of grief, as Harry’s relentless pursuit to hunt down Regan and personally put an end to this deranged psychopath’s life defines this novel. The setting has shifted in Liar Liar, while the previous two books in this series were based in remote Australia, Liar Liar is based in the city and along Australia’s coastline. I think it works for this novel, as this is more about Harry’s cat and mouse chase with Regan. The cat and mouse chase itself was played out well in Liar Liar. Patterson and Fox serve up plenty of shocks and violent scenes. There was darkness about this book that I appreciated, which I put down to the influence of Fox. A few times I cast my mind back to Fox’s first book Hades. There were definitely echoes of the Archer/Bennett series in this book. Fox’s propensity to examine the dark side of human nature and the psychology of the mind is always illuminating. I consumed the scenes that fleshed up Regan’s background and the conditions that helped give rise to the despicable man he becomes. So I come to the cliff-hanger of Liar Liar and wow, the end issued the book with a complete flip over. I’m going to admit that I didn’t predict this direction at all. But, I think it is a wise and open choice made by both authors, as it allows for Harriet’s future to be explored in another facet. I recommend Liar Liar and the Harry Blue series to all crime fiction and thriller fans. *I wish to thank Penguin Books Australia for providing me with a free copy of this book for review purposes.

    Another excellent addition to the Harriet Blue series. This one asks the question - how far would you go to take revenge on someone who has hurt you and your family? Is there an inherent evil somewhere inside just waiting to be exposed. That is what Regan is trying to prove and what Harriet is trying to discover about herself.

This one asks the question - how far would you go to take revenge on someone who has hurt you and your family? Is there an inherent evil somewhere inside just waiting to be exposed. That is what Regan is trying to prove and what Harriet is trying to discover about herself. In this book we have a cop on the loose, a serial killer drawing her into a game of cat and mouse and a top cop looking to get his name in the lights, even if that means taking down one of his own team. There is so much evil in this book that it is nice when we get to see the light. It is rare but well worth the wait. This cat, Regan, seems to have the upper hand. He knows everything about Harry including her childhood. Why does it seem like she is the mouse, constantly in a game of catch up? How does he know so much about her that he is able to keep pulling the string that she is chasing? Harry is a good person, trying so hard to protect people and she is doing it in the only way she knows how. Will it be the right way or not? Morals come in to play within this book - do morals trump all or do you sometimes have to do something you don't want to do in order to get the result you are chasing. I love that in this book Harry is questioning her every move and thought. She is a superhero cop reduced to the same thoughts and feelings as every other person and becomes a very real and relatable person. She will challenge your thinking and your feelings with what she says and does in this book. Liar Liar is great for all fans of Patterson and Fox and anyone who loves a good game of cat and mouse where you are not always sure who is going to come out with the spoils.

A gritty, tough and very physical narrative, I am sure if you enjoyed Candice’s Archer and Bennett series you will enjoy this read.

I started reading his books when I was a young teenager and I have grown up reading them and I will die reading his books. I would always day dream that Alex Cross was my awesome cool uncle, but that is a story for another time! Patterson is an honest to god GENIUS! I love him. Does my love for him effect my review? Nope. I always review honestly and even if my favourite author is on the chopping block I would still be honest. So don’t be fooled by the 5 star review, it isn’t the love for Patterson that got this review. It was Liar Liar and boy was it amazing! Liar Liar is the third book in the series written with Candice Fox. I haven’t read Never Never nor Fifty Fifty before I started this book. Though I always recommend reading a series in order, this is a Patterson book and you never need to read his books in order, because as soon as you start this you already know what has happened in the previous books and you get to know all the characters on a personal level. Patterson has such a way with words. And please don’t think that the first two chapters are spent explaining the previous books and the characters and how they all got this point. Nope. Patterson literally has you jumping straight into the story and finding out about the characters as you go. So if you ever come across a Patterson book and it’s the 15th in a series, don’t put it back, imagine all his books are stand along but yet wonderfully tied together. Trust me when I say but the book. Liar Liar is a book based in Australia (Yasss) and is centred around Detective Harriet Blue who is on the run from the police in the hopes that she will capture and kill Regan Banks. The man that killed her brother. Living out of her backpack, with taunting calls from Reagan, Blue must find a way to capture Regan before he can harm those she loves and those that has spent her life and career protecting. Interested yet? One of my favourite things about Patterson books is that he writes from multiple points of view and can pull it off smoothly. Each chapter is based from either the perspective of Blue, Reagan or Blue’s cop buddy Pops with a few added extra as well. Throughout the book you spend your time dying to get back to Blue’s chapter to find out how she is going while also dying to get back to the Reagan chapters to get in the mind of the serial killer. Brilliant. I can never fault Patterson’s delivery of making every character important and interesting. Not only are the characters amazing but you also get a glimpse into their weaknesses, strengths, fears and what they love. I have never found a character boring or willing myself to skip a chapter to get to the next point of view. And if you told me to pick a favourite? Well I couldn’t. I love them all! Though this book was written by two people, Patterson and Fox, you never see a lot of Fox’s writing style seep through and I wouldn’t be able to tell you where one writer stooped and another continues. The whole book flowed smoothly and boy was it amazing. I always look forward to reading Patterson because this guy does not disappoint! I loved Liar Liar and couldn’t flaw it if I tried. Great writing. Engaging and brilliant characters. Unstoppable from start to finish. Patterson, I bow down to you!

    What is this about?: A chase, the chase of Harriet Blue's life as she throws all caution and her career away in her hunt for the man that killed her brother. What else is this about?: What makes someone evil? What makes someone succumb to the darkness in them? That's the question Harry needs to answer if she's to survive Regan Black When last we left Harriet Blue, her brother, Sam, was dead and the real Georges River killer, and Regan, the man who framed Sam was on the run.  Now, in Liar Liar,  so What is this about?: A chase, the chase of Harriet Blue's life as she throws all caution and her career away in her hunt for the man that killed her brother. What else is this about?: What makes someone evil? What makes someone succumb to the darkness in them? That's the question Harry needs to answer if she's to survive Regan Black When last we left Harriet Blue, her brother, Sam, was dead and the real Georges River killer, and Regan, the man who framed Sam was on the run.  Now, in Liar Liar,  so is Harry. She is hunting Regan, determined to kill him for what he did to Sam, while there's a task force hunting her, determined to bring her in. There is one small consolation in that her partner Whitt, and her mentor and commander Pops, are trying to help her, trying to figure out where Regan is going next. But here's the thing: Regan is calling her and telling her exactly where he's going next.  And Harry knows she's walking into his traps, but she can't not, because he killed Sam, and all she has left is her revenge. Harry and Regan Regan is a psychopath, one that latched on to Sam years ago, and without Sam, latches on to Harry. He calls her, tells her he wants to unravel her, much like Sam putting him in prison did -- stripped him down to his core and forced him to admit who he was to himself. He sees a kinship in Harry, and to her horror, she begins to wonder if he might be right -- that at her core she might be as cold and ruthless as he is.  That's the question she's faced with as he begins to hunt down her past, finding the people in her professional and personal life that meant something to her so he can taken them from her. She is always one step behind, one step to not being good enough and as she chases him across Sydney, her frustration grows as does her concern for who he might be after next. Whitt and Pops As much as the book focuses on Harry and Regan, we're given insight into Pops and Whitt too as they navigate the political minefield of a taskforce that on some level has already determined Harry is guilty. Pops cuts a swathe through the bullshit, putting his career at risk in an effort to keep Harry safe, while Whitt is out in the field trying to be the first one to find Harry, and not some trigger happy minion. They never doubt her, instead all they have is concern for her safety after she gets through this. But what they forget is that they too are in danger, and no necessarily from Regan.  If anything Liar Liar is more fast paced than the previous ones in this series, but every word, every chapter matters. I found myself turning pages faster and faster as the book progressed, eating up these words in an effort to find out what happens to Harry. The book succeeds in unravelling Harry, though because of, and not because of Regan at the same time. I think it's her love for her brother that unravelled her, that stripped her back to her most basic because I'm not entirely sure she knows who she is if she's not Sam's sister. The series has made it clear how much they mean to each other, how much they rely on each other, so I think taking him away is the worst thing that could happen to her. There's a cliffhanger of course, but not one that I expected in the least. Candice Fox and James Patterson are taking Harry into uncharted territory... or maybe, this is the end for Harriet Blue. Who knows? All I can is for sure, I am thoroughly satisfied with this ending for Harry.

Harriet needs to find Regan fast, even if the cost is her own life. So she follows him down the Australian south coast with only one thing on her mind. Revenge.  Once again we find ourselves back with Harriet Blue in her third instalment. I love Harriet Blue, both as a series and a character and was eager to get into this, Patterson having left the previous offering on a cliffhanger, as I would expect mind you. 'Liar Liar' feels different to the other Harriet Blue books, Harriet finds herself in a different situation and on the other side of the law, she is even more desperate than usual and finds herself battling without her friends by her side. The plot for 'Liar Liar' is good and there is a lot going on but this is lacking in the excitement stakes. Although I enjoyed reading this, I was not completely gripped by it and I did think it was missing some twists to spice the plot up more. What this plot misses in shocks, it more than makes up for with an emotional, revenge filled plot. We already know a lot about Harriet Blue but we learn even more about her, Sam and Regan in this, about all the characters really, and this only deepened my relationship with them. As well as this it was great to catch up with Harriet's colleagues and friend and to see how they all get roped into the Regan/ Harriet chase. A Patterson book would not be a Patterson book without an ambiguous ending that leaves you wanting more. This is definitely no different, I am desperate to know what happens next in Harriet Blue's life and can only hope it will not be long before we follow her again. 'Liar Liar' is a good instalment in the Harriet Blue series that sees Harriet in a whole new, dangerous situation. Although this is somewhat lacking in the thrilling stakes, I still thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

Candice Fox is a fine writer in her own right. She may have benefitted from collaborating with James Patterson but she will be best advised to go it alone and continue with her novels that carry her name alone. I'll certainly be back for the next Harry Blue installment.

    Excellent...the best of the three in the Detective Harriet Blue series. On the pursuit of Reagan Banks, Harry takes all possible measures to stop him. The occasional strange diversions (eg the bikies) seemed a step just too far but ultimately the novel continued to pick up its pace. An excellent ending allowing for an entirely new direction (my personal preference) or this could see the end of an above-average crime-thriller series. Well worth reading!

    oh dear I must be getting to be an old moaner. I gave up reading this after the first few chapters. It felt to me like it was written as a young adult genre. Might be me just being too fussy but hey ho I just didn't like it.

    This is the first time I have given anything other than Five Stars for a James Patterson book. It was enjoyable but slow and a bit predictable with a disappointing ending. Still can’t wait for his next book 😊

    This was one of the best ones out of the series. More suspenseful than the previous mysteries.
