Hello everyone, today I’m pleased to provide you all with a review and extract of the fantastic novel Sweet Little Lies by Cat Frear. In the extract Cat discusses the tough female detective surviving in a sexist man’s world and whether this really exists in 2017, I would love to hear your thoughts too. I hope you’ll enjoy!
Sweet Little Lies, set in contemporary London but with flashbacks to late 1990s Ireland, sees police detective Cat Kinsella investigating the murder of Alice Lapaine. Alice’s body is discovered near the pub Cat’s father runs and when evidence links Alice to a girl who went missing in Ireland eighteen years previously – a girl Cat’s father denied knowing even though Cat knows he lied – the secrets and resentments of the past threaten to spill out.
