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.

    For those that don’t know anything about James Patterson, where have you been? This guy is honestly my life. 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 For those that don’t know anything about James Patterson, where have you been? This guy is honestly my life. 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!
