Can you hide a secret with the whole world watching?
When an explosion rips apart a Chicago building, the lives of three women are forever altered.
A year later, Cecily is in mourning. She was supposed to be in the building that day. Instead, she stood on the street and witnessed it going down, with her husband and best friend inside. Kate, now living thousands of miles away, fled the disaster and is hoping that her past won’t catch up with her. And Franny, a young woman in search of her birth mother, watched the horror unfold on the morning news, knowing that the woman she was so desperate to reconnect with was in the building.
Now, despite the marks left by the tragedy, they all seem safe. But as its anniversary dominates the media, the memories of that terrifying morning become dangerous triggers. All these women are guarding important secrets. Just how far will they go to keep them?

This book is so fantastic. McKenzie has such a talent of telling a story that makes the reader get completely lost in the world she creates. There are characters that you cannot help but be drawn to and McKenzie fleshes them out perfectly. Each of them equally interesting and engaging. How she can creates connections and maintains the flow of the story is nothing short of genius. This book captures time and place and our role in it all and how secrets can change us...a brilliant read! McKenzie is a master storyteller and not to be missed. The Good Liar is one of her best books yet and is not to be missed. You are going to be in for a treat.
