About Liars’ Games:
Dr Juliet Powell is a genius math professor who doesn’t like to lie or to fail, but in doing the first, she does the second. She’s always known that lying was her biggest weakness and failing at anything was her biggest fear. When she entered witness protection, she hoped she would adapt and learn the necessary skills to re-invent herself. Her life and her son’s depended on it. At first, starting over seemed to provide an added benefit—she lost the stigma attached to being a child-prodigy and got the chance to be seen as normal like everyone else. But over her first year in the program, she continued to struggle with lies and secrets, causing her to blow her cover and forcing her handler, Brad Meyers, to move her twice. The realization that with each new identity comes more stories and more chances of getting them entangled hit her hard. She’s getting further and further away from who she really is.
When she blows her cover yet again, Brad warns her this is her last chance. She needs to blend in like a chameleon and play the game, but how can someone who has always believed in honesty suddenly become a convincing liar? Compounding her problem with this new move, a political maneuver not of her choice and not within the usual rules of witness protection, ensconces her in the role of principal at a Denver high school full of gangs, drug dealers, and disgruntled employees. And then, when she discovers that a stranger is watching her and her young son, and her handler can’t or won’t move her, she must decide whether to run away and take her chances, or stay and fight to make the school safer.
It’s a book that on the surface deals with school violence and fear, but at the heart of it is a woman’s struggle with lying and deception, trust, self-identity, and the moral decline of society.
