Publisher Description

From Peter Swanson, the acclaimed author of Eight Perfect Murders, The Girl with a Clock for a Heart is an addictive, nonstop thriller—an ever-tightening coil of suspense that grips you right up to its electrifying end.

On an ordinary Friday evening at his favorite Boston tavern, George Foss’s comfortable, predictable life is shattered when a beautiful woman sits down at the bar, a woman who vanished without a trace twenty years ago.

Liana Dector isn’t just an ex-girlfriend, the first love George couldn’t quite forget. She’s also a dangerous enigma and quite possibly a cold-blooded killer wanted by the police. Suddenly, she’s back—and she needs George’s help. Ruthless men believe she stole some money ... and they will do whatever it takes to get it back.

George knows Liana is trouble. But he can’t say no—he never could—so he makes a choice that will plunge him into a terrifying whirlpool of lies, secrets, betrayal, and murder from which there is no sure escape.

Bold and masterful, full of malicious foreboding and subtle surprises,The Girl with a Clock for a Heart is the story of a man swept into a vortex of irresistible passion and murder when an old love mysteriously reappears.

Really good read, BUT . . .

Don’t let the one-star reviews put you off this modern noir. It’s well worth the read. But the lack of final resolution is every so slightly IRRITATING

eh

This book kind of sucked. I liked it but like.. it drug on. George was an idiot and all of this could have been avoided.
