An Imperfect Truth
by Priscilla Masters

Dr Claire Roget’s patient may have told her last lie, but can the truth about her death be uncovered?

Poppy Kelloway was a liar. Forensic psychiatric Claire Roget’s patient made up ‘facts’ that damaged families, destroyed relationships and even resulted in a suicide.

Poppy left a trail of human misery in her wake, but when she’s found murdered in her home by her two teenage sons, the savage nature of the attack is shocking, as is the discovery of a torn appointment card for her next meeting with Claire. Could there be a connection between the murderer and Claire’s clinic, and is she in danger? Claire and Detective Sergeant Zed Willard must navigate dangerous minds and a terrible betrayal in their quest to uncover the chilling truth.
