The Liar's Lullaby (2010). About book: At a desk in a corner of the garage, Ivory hunched over the computer, drinking a Mountain Dew. Her feet, planted wide beneath the desk in her black work boots, tapped in time to the jitters in her head. She read Tom Paine’s latest message. Tasia warned us. She came to the concert armed with the jackal’s gun. She raised it high. Ivory whispered the rest: ‘She could not have shouted a louder message: True Americans will not go quietly.

A fine symmetry bookends The Liar's Lullaby. In the opening scene, Tasia McFarland, out-of-control, bipolar singer-songwriter and former wife of the US president, makes a dramatic entry on a stage on a zip-line; at the end Jo Beckett, forensic psychiatrist to San Francisco police department, body-rappels from a fifth floor window to escape a couple of crazed assassins. The first high wire act ends in carnage, the final one in rescue. Action scenes like these are full of just the kind of detailed, nail-biting drama that Gardiner does so well. But this is a minor gripe. Gardiner is brilliant at making the highly implausible convincing, and switches effortlessly from high tension to tenderness and heartache. This series targets teens and young adults, but will appeal just as much to not-so-young adults.

When a rock singer is killed onstage during a concert, Jo Beckett is called in to perform a psychological autopsy. But Tasia McFarland's death causes Jo all kinds of problems, because Tasia is the ex-wife of the President of the United States. The White House pressures Jo to declare Tasia's death an accident rather than a homicide. The media and conspiracy nuts rant that Tasia was knocked off to silence her, for unknown reasons.

Edgar Award winner Meg Gardiner returns with a third propulsive, groundbreaking thriller about forensic psychiatrist Jo Beckett and the lies that are even more dangerous than fame. Tasia McFarland is a washed-up country-pop singer desperate for the break that will get her topping the charts again. The tabloids have raked over every part of Tasia's rocky life, following every high and low, her addictions, her breakdowns, her increasingly erratic behavior-and every broken relationship. The highlight of this lowlight reel: her failed marriage to an ambitious Army officer whose political talents earned him a spot in the nation's highest office. Tasia McFarland is the ex-wife of the President of the United States. So when Tasia writes a song with politically-charged lyrics, people take note and her star begins to rise anew. In the spectacle-driven opener of her comeback tour, she is lowered into a stadium on a zip line and as helicopters fly overhead she fires her prop Colt 45 at the fireworks-filled stage. Tasia is riding high. Until she's killed by a bullet to the neck, before the shocked crowd of 40,000. When video can't prove that the shot came from Tasia's own Colt .45 and the ballistics report comes up empty, the authorities call on forensic psychiatrist Jo Beckett to do a psychological autopsy and clean up the potential political disaster. But as Jo sifts through the facts, she only finds more questions. Was Tasia's gun loaded? Did she kill herself in one last cry for attention? Were her politically-charged lyrics the rantings of a paranoid woman losing her grip? Or warnings from a woman afraid and in danger? For Jo, pouring over Tasia's past quickly becomes a race to extinguish the conspiracy rumor mill before it incites a level of violence that reaches America's highest corridors of power-and tears apart the very fabric of our nation.

Well, either I am just getting used to her style...no, there is some needed improvement in the storytelling of Meg Gardiner. She has created a character with wit and grit. I like Jo's sense of humor, which is subtle for the most part. And that mountain climbing skill--a great ability to have to get down from the fifth floor. There is plenty of action, and the clues to the bad guys match the story. There are convolutions, deaths, and near deaths. And Jo is accepting an aspect of herself that she has been resistant toward. Her sister calls her an "adrenalin junkie". I say she is risk-seeking, and it shows up in that she has risky intimate relationships. She is attracted to men who themselves have a risky relationship with risk.
This story has a character who has bipolar illness. Meg Gardiner has done a superb job of exploring the person's experience, and the experience of those around her. She does this without the usual didactic tone that authors can have. She is accurate in her descriptions of internal and external symptoms. She uses the right language, sounding neither over-simplified, nor over-technical. This reviewer greatly appreciates the care and skill of the author that this reveals.

I'm a huge Meg Gardiner fan - both her Evan Delaney series and her Jo Beckett series. This is the latest installment in the latter and it does not disappoint!

Being a forensic psychologist has it's caveats. It can make you a target for grieving family and psychopaths, and in a high profile case such as this, stalkers, conspiracy nuts, killers, and government intimidation. Jo must investigate this case quickly and thoroughly as she is feeling pressure from all sides to wrap things up (and everyone's pushing for a different outcome) but records are missing, interviewees are uncooperative, or unavailable, and things just aren't adding up.

Gardiner's books are fast paced and detailed. Did I figure out the whodunit before Beckett? Yes, but that's because the reader is supplied with far more information than poor Jo. The fascinating part was having more pieces of the puzzle than Jo, and being able to get a hazy picture of the situation, but not being able to put all the pieces together. We need Jo's investigation to do that for us. And even with all of that, there were still twists and turns that surprised me. Gardiner, as always, also finds a way to alleviate some of the the intensity in the book by inserting levity in the form of wit, sarcasm, and in this case, revenge on a prying media hound.

Though her books are parts of a series, Gardiner also makes them stand-alone accessible -especially the Beckett series- but with most series, they're more enjoyable in order. Relationships and non-plot related conflicts are left open, leading the reader into the next book.(The first book in the Evan Delaney series is China Lake. The first book in the Jo Beckett series is The Dirty Secrets Club.)

Gardiner's one of the few thriller authors whose books I can never put down. I suggest you pick her up.

Dr. Jo Becket is both a smart and gutsy protagonist with a side of adrenalin addiction. Meg Gardiner is a master story creator and this one has all the twists with a great pace.

Only towards the end of the book did it become interesting. If I was the type of person who put a book down if its not interesting I would not have finished this book.

Nice, unexpected twists and a prose that flows smoothly make "The Liar's lullaby" a solid thriller. The only
complaint that I have (and this is me) is that I prefer these thrillers to be set on a much smaller setting.
I prefer to read about an ordinary person (not the President of the United States) who, by chance, finds himself
involved in a dangerous, unexpected situation. Besides that, I enjoyed it very much. Gardiner is a damn good
writer.
