Sweet Little Lies by Caz Frear
Twenty-six-year-old Cat Kinsella overcame a troubled childhood to become a Detective Constable, but she's never been able to banish these ghosts. When she's called to the scene of a murder, not far from the pub her estranged father still runs, she discovers that Alice Lapaine, a young housewife, has been found strangled. Cat and her team immediately suspect Alice's husband, until she receives a mysterious phone call that links the victim to a teenage girl who went missing in Ireland eighteen years earlier. Though she was only a child, Cat knew that her charming but dissolute father wasn't telling the truth when he denied knowing anything about the teenager or her disappearance. Did her father do something to the teenage girl all those years ago? Could he have harmed Alice now? And how can you trust a liar even if he might be telling the truth? Cat rushes headlong into the investigation, crossing ethical lines and trampling professional codes. However, the deeper she digs, the darker the secrets she may uncover.
