an exclusive interview with bestselling author Liv Constantine   
 

THE LAST TIME I SAW YOU is certainly a psychological thriller, but it’s also a murder mystery. Is that a type of story you both felt drawn to, even before you got around to writing one?

“Yes. We both love Agatha Christie and Mary Higgins Clark, and as children we were both huge fans of Nancy Drew. We had a lot of fun working to make sure that any of the cast of characters could be the killer. From the psychological suspense side, we wanted to explore the bounds of friendship, the dynamics involved in mother-daughter relationships, and the baggage we all bring into a marriage. THE LAST TIME I SAW YOU centers around a murder and the idea that behind every friendly smile, a killer could lurk. There are complicated relationships and there is domestic terror. Our protagonist, Kate, a successful heart surgeon, begins to question her own judgment and sanity by the end of the book.”
