Note: Spoilers for previous books in this series.

This is the third book in a series featuring 36-year-old Sydney Detective Inspector Harriet “Harry” Blue. It begins five weeks after the previous book, when Harry found out her wrongfully-convicted brother Sam had been killed in prison. Harry has been on the run ever since. She is determined to find and kill Regan Banks, the man responsible for the crimes for which Sam was accused, and therefore responsible for Sam’s death.

Meanwhile, Regan’s crime spree has continued. Deputy Police Commissioner Joseph Woods comes in and announces to Chief Trevor Morris that he is taking over the case. Woods wants to take out both Regan and Harry, whom he refers to as “a rogue policewoman running amok.” He has no qualms about killing either one of them, but seems even more bent on eliminating Harry than Regan.

Harry’s partner Whitt (Detective Edward Whittacker) is told to keep looking for Harry, and he is teamed up with a new woman - Vada Reskit. We know something is off about Vada from the start, but only learn what as the story progresses.

Regan continues to evade the police, but he has gotten the number to Harry’s phone, and calls her to alert her to where his next victims are, who are related in some way to Harry.

Tension escalates, and pretty much almost everyone almost dies.

Evaluation: As has been the pattern with this series, the bad guys tend to be non-nuanced and caricatured to say the least. The book is definitely a page turner, however. ( )

Really had a difficult time rating and understanding my feelings about this book. Did like the ending as it tied up most loose ends. Unfortunately the journey to get to the conclusion was a mixture of 'so what' and 'this is tedious' with a shot of frustration thrown in. This is the conclusion of a story that started as a sidebar to Never Never and accompanied us through Fifty Fifty. In all of them was an unevenness that took the edge off the reading enjoyment.

Find Harriet Blue an intriguing character with interesting personality quirks and twists that create, to me, a very conflicted individual. She is good at her job but her methods are subject to question as she views it is her position in life to bring justice to those who harmed, abused and damaged the innocent.

Without a lead character like her these books would not have had any redeeming value. The writing was ok, the story was generally acceptable but beyond Harriet Blue the supporting cast of characters were cardboard and the story just did not draw the reader in. ( )

This is an okay story. Harriet Blue is a character I do not care about. The supporting characters of Whitt, Pops, and Tox are much more likeable. ( )

Again- a bit over the top with the gore. Harriet is nothing if not determined. Again left hanging, so I will have to continue the series. There are some good "sub-characters" and it's a very quick read. ( )

This is the third novel in the "Detective Harriet Blue" series and I thought it was going to be the last until the final chapter. Now I am looking forward to reading the next book. Harriet Blue is growing on me more and more and I get to know her better.

To be honest, "Liar, Liar" was rather slow and boring at the start but the second-half was action-packed, especially as the final confrontation between Harriet and Regan drew closer. Like the first two books, Harriet suffers from severe physical injuries - gun shot wound, malnutrition and dehydration - but still manages to battle Regan at the end. Overall, an enjoyable read. ( )
