Sisters in Crime (NSW Chapter) is thrilled to present Petronella McGovern discussing her latest release, The Liars (just out with Allen & Unwin).

Petronella is a special guest of the Sunday Soiree series: Crime: why write it, why read it?  Your hosts – criminal defence lawyer and author, Siobhan Mullany, and psychologist and author, Ann Penhallurick- are very excited to explore with Petronella what inspired her to write The Liars, why she chose to set it the small town community of Kinton Bay, why and how she crafted the wonderfully effective characters and plot that draw the reader in so thoroughly.

Petronella’s books have been described as domestic noir and psychological suspense. With strong characters and gripping storylines, her novels will keep you reading – and guessing – late into the night. After travelling and working in Canberra for a number of years, she now lives on Sydney’s northern beaches with her husband and their two teenagers. Petronella’s bestselling debut novel, Six Minutes, was shortlisted for the Australian Crime Writers’ Association’s Ned Kelly Awards and longlisted for the Australian Independent Bookseller’s Indie Book Awards. Her second novel, The Good Teacher, was longlisted for the Davitt Awards. The Liars is her third novel.

The Liars: A wife burning with resentment.

A husband hiding the past.

Their teenage daughter crusading for the truth. Who can we trust?
