A novel that begins with an advertising firm burning to the ground soon introduces the reader to three women who are directly associated with the inferno. Three Perfect Liars by Heidi Perks is a whodunit that aptly satisfies thriller-lovers’ need for surprises and unrelenting suspense. Laura, a wife and mother, returns to the world of advertising after being on maternity leave. Mia, the woman who temporarily filled her position, has taken over her accounts and her office and will not be surrendering them. It seems that she has an ulterior motive in staying with the company and Laura is secretely investigating her past. Janie, the wife of the CEO of the firm, suspects that either woman may be involved with her husband. And this sets the scene for lies and more lies. Each woman has her reasons for lying and the lies will lead to a deadly fire. The author alternates the narrative between the three women and a police detective who is investigating the crimes. All roads will lead to a shocking ending. I thorouhly enjoyed this original mystery. Highly recommended. Thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada and NetGalley for the e-ARC in exchange for an honest review.

The Morris & Wood Advertising Agency is a towering inferno. On the opposite quay a woman watches and watches as a body is carried out. Who is the woman? Who died? The author takes us back in time to eight weeks before the fire when Laura Denney returns from her maternity leave to discover that her temporary replacement, Mia Anderson, has been given a permanent position. Awkward! Harry Wood, charismatic head of the agency, was once Laura's biggest fan. Now he seems to be on Team Mia. Laura also struggles to balance work and home while her husband stays home with baby Bobby. Harry's wife Janie chose to leave her job as a high profile defense attorney when they built the new agency away from London five years ago. She also struggles with the mommy life. All three women give their perspectives in alternating POVs. When they cross paths at a company party three days before the fire, a confrontation erupts affecting all three families. Interspersed between chapters are transcripts of interviews that the detectives are conducting regarding the arson investigation giving us additional insights into the Morris & Wood office politics and motives of our three main characters. I found this to be a compelling read with a satisfying finish. If you like this one, you should also try "The New Girl" by Harriet Walker.
