Perfect liars is the name of a mystery youth bilogy written by the Venezuelan author Alex Mírez. The first volume of the series was published on the Wattpad platform in 2018 and has 123 million readings and 8.1 million views to date. Thanks to its popularity, the Montena publishing house put the work on paper in 2020. A second book called perfect liars, dangers and truths.
Although both works are self-contained, they are closely related to each other. When Mírez's material was put on paper, several chapters were added —which can only be read in physical form—, so the book became very long. To publish it, the author and the publisher agreed to divide the work into two volumes with conclusive endings.
