This is a life told back to front.
This is a man who has lied all his life.
Roy is a conman living in a leafy English suburb, about to pull off the final coup of his career. He is going to meet and woo a beautiful woman. He will swiftly move in with her and together they will live the seemingly calm life of a retired couple - evenings in front of the television, a little holiday in Berlin. Then he will slip away with her life savings.
But who is the man behind the con and what has he had to do to survive this life of lies?
And why is this beautiful woman so willing to be his next victim?
'What a clever and menacing novel The Good Liar is. I was gripped and horrified in equal measure and the ending knocked me sideways! I can't wait for everyone to read the book so I can talk about it.' Nina Stibbe
'I was engrossed by Nicholas Searle's story of Roy, a conman out for one last scam, and Betty, a wealthy widow and the perfect mark. The plot unfolds to a payoff as inevitable as it is shocking. A superb thriller and a truly compelling read.' Ruth Ware, Author of In a Dark, Dark Wood
