Publisher's Summary

The Liar's Chair is Rebecca Whitney's stunning psychological thriller debut set in Brighton.
Rachel Teller and her husband, David, appear happy, prosperous and fulfilled. The big house, the successful business... They have everything. However, control, not love, fuels their relationship, and David has no idea his wife indulges in drunken indiscretions.
When Rachel kills a man in a hit-and-run, the meticulously maintained veneer over their life begins to crack. Destroying all evidence of the accident, David insists they continue as normal. Rachel, though, is racked with guilt, and as her behaviour becomes increasingly self-destructive, she not only inflames David's darker side but also uncovers her own long-suppressed memories of shame.
Can Rachel confront her past and atone for her terrible crime? Not if her husband has anything to do with it....
A startling, dark and audacious novel set in and around the Brighton streets, The Liar's Chair will keep listeners on the edges of their seats until the final second has ticked away. A stunning psychological portrait of a woman in a toxic marriage, Rebecca Whitney's debut will show that sometimes the darkest shadow holds the truth you have been hiding from.

Scattered story. Disappointing ending.

The narration was surprisingly good. However, the story was unimpressive. The climax seems to be in the beginning and the rest goes on and on about small, insignificant details. What a horrible ending, also. There seems to be no resolution. Maybe it's on purpose, to try and create this into a series.

Can't relate to the protagonist

Too many poor choices for one human being. Hard to stay interested in the story.

Unpleasant characters without exception

The nicest character in the story is a drug dealer. The story was relatively engaging and I did finish it. But if someone had finished off the "heroine" I wouldn't have been sorry to see her go.

Better than Girl on a Train!

Any additional comments?

Wow! How did this woman get herself in such a situation? Often I felt that she should have "looked before she leapt" but the character was drawn to be a confused, needy person. The narrator was perfect. The tension was huge on a couple of occasions. I can thoroughly recommend this and look forward to the next book by Rebecca Whitney.
