Mallory Book 2: the second NYPD detective Kathy Mallory novel from New York Times bestseller Carol O'Connell, master of knife-edge suspense and intricate plotting. Detective Kathy Mallory. New York's darkest. You only underestimate her once. No one in New York's Special Crimes section knows much about Sergeant Kathy Mallory's origins. They only know that she can bewitch the most complex computer systems, can slip into the minds of killers with disturbing ease. When a woman is murdered in Central Park, it appears to be a case of mistaken identity. Mallory goes hunting the killer, armed with under-the-skin knowledge of the man's mind and the bare clue of a lie. Mallory holds on to one truth: everybody lies, and some lies lead to death. And she knows that, to trap the killer, she must put her own life at risk. This book was originally published in the UK under the title THE MAN WHO LIED TO WOMEN.
