SPOILERS for The Good Liar by Catherine McKenzie

Sooo many spoilers to be revealed with this book. 

First of all, Cecily was going to the building where her husband and best friend worked that day to sign divorce papers.  She had found out that her husband, Tom, was cheating on her.  It is revealed later in the book that his "emotional affair" was with Kate, Cecily's neighbor and best friend.

The whole world thought that Kate was dead, but instead, she wasn't at work that day.  She was running away that day.   Feeling overwhelmed with everything, she was leaving her husband and two kids.  The explosion gave her the perfect cover and she let everybody think that she was dead.

Until she saw the article where Franny was being interviewed.  She returned from "the dead" to prove that Franny was a fraud.  She was unable to prove that Franny was a fraud, but she did get Franny on tape confessing to causing the explosion.

The very last secret revealed was that Franny was Kate's daughter. She was studying abroad when she got pregnant, gave birth, and put the baby up for adoption without anybody ever knowing.

First of all, Alex was killed by Elena, a Russian spy.  Elena didn't kill Cassie, too, because she knew that Cassie was a drunk and not likely to be a threat to her.  But, also because she was a double agent and not keen on killing an innocent American citizen.   However, her Russian boss was not thrilled with leaving a witness and ordered her to kill Cassie.   But, the Russians figured out that Elena was a double agent and sent someone to kill both Elena and Cassie.  The "someone" was Buckley, one of the several men that Cassie had slept with in the book.  Cassie and her Italian lover, Enrico ended up getting the drop on Buckley and survived his attack.  Elena did not get so lucky.

It was also revealed through copies of the FBI interview notes that Cassie's friend, Meghan WAS selling secrets to the Russians.

And in the end, Cassie became sober, gave birth to a little girl that was fathered by Alex.  AND became a mole for the US Government.  Only working when they needed a "spy" on international flights.
