The Perfect Liar

Thomas Christopher Greene. St. Martin’s, $26.99 (288p) ISBN 978-1-250-12821-8
After a whirlwind romance, New York gallery assistant Susannah Garcia weds charming artist Max Westmoreland, but each of them hides a history that threatens their idyllic marriage, in this riveting novel from Greene (If I Forget You). With Susannah’s 15-year-old son, the couple move from New York City to a grand old house in the hills above Burlington, Vt., where Max has landed a plum university position and, as his profile rises, they enjoy their new affluence. Then Susannah discovers a note on their door that reads, “I know who you are.” As subsequent notes follow, she learns that her husband isn’t the person she believed him to be—but he doesn’t know everything about her, either. With adroit pacing, Greene reveals the decisions that shaped them both, brought them together, and now jeopardize their future. Shifting perspectives illuminate the gap between how they perceive themselves and how they view each other. Despite a rushed climax, fans of domestic suspense will be well satisfied. Agent: Marly Rusoff, Marly Rusoff & Assoc. (Jan.)
