Description

Carina Adores is excited to offer this special preview of Liar City by Allie Therin. We hope you enjoy reading the first five chapters!

***

A murder has Seattle on edge, and it falls to a pacifist empath—and a notorious empath hunter—to find the killer before it's too late

It’s the middle of the night when part-time police consultant and full-time empath Reece gets an anonymous call warning him that his detective sister needs his help. At an out-of-the-way Seattle marina, he discovers that three people have been butchered—including the author of the country’s strictest anti-empathy bill, which is just days from being passed into law.

Soon, Reece’s caller arrives: a shadowy government agent known as The Dead Man, who is rumored to deal exclusively in cases involving empathy. He immediately takes over the investigation, locking out both local PD and the FBI, but, strangely, keeps Reece by his side.

As the two track an ever-growing trail of violence and destruction across Seattle, Reece must navigate a scared and angry city, an irritating attraction to his mysterious agent companion, and a rising fear that perhaps empaths like him aren’t all flight and no fight after all…

Featured Reviews

I love Allie Therin's Magic in Manhattan series and spinoff, and this preview promises a similar setup of mystery and empaths, only set in present day Seattle rather than 1920s New York and London. Since it's set in modern times everything seems a bit more gritty. There are cell phones, which really change a story, I've found. That ability to be instantly connected to someone else, no matter where they are. It opens a lot of possibilities but also places limitations on plot.

I connected instantly with Reece and with Jamey and the secondary characters surrounding them. I was also immediately drawn into the mystery and the police investigation setup. I love the way Allie Therin writes. Everything flows so nicely, and it's so easy to get wrapped up in the story and the characters.

I can't wait to read the rest of the story! I don't usually like contemporary stories or police procedurals, but this is clearly an exception.

*Thanks to NetGalley and Carina Adores for providing a preview of the e-arc for review.
