Farewell to the Liar (Tales of Fenest #3) (Paperback)
The final installment of The Tales of Fenest. Detective Cora Gorderheim must make a terrible choice: her sister's life, or the future of the Union.
There's power in stories.
Detective Cora Gorderheim is a detective no longer. Stripped of her badge by the corrupt chief inspector, Cora's job now is to protect her sister, Ruth, the new Wayward storyteller.
Ruth must tell her tale of the Tear widening if people are to know the truth of what's happening in the Union of Realms. But Lowlander Chambers Morton wants the Wayward to change their election story, and will stop at nothing to achieve this – including murder.
Keeping Ruth alive in Fenest is hard enough, but when the sisters set sail for West Perlanse the dangers come thick and fast. And slowly Cora realizes she must make a terrible choice: her sister's life, or the future of the Union.

"It's rare to find such a richly imagined world about the art of myth and storytelling." —Christopher Fowler, author, Full Dark House
"There are hidden depths to Widow's Welcome, and the rewards for spending time with this book are very great. I felt as if I was one of the Audience, and asked to cast my own vote on stories of tragedy, sacrifice and betrayal. If you love storytelling, you'll love this." —Simon Morden, author, One Way
"There is more than meets the eye in this gripping and inventive debut. . . . Rife with intrigue, deceit and cultural tension." —James Aitcheson, author, Sworn Sword
"Melding noir with the fantasy genre, this is a rather clever read, one which feels especially prescient for our reality." —SciFiNow
