A stunning and suspenseful feat of storytelling, The Good Liar unravels the past of a man who lives to deceive.Like Patricia Highsmith's Tom Ripley, veteran con artist Roy is a born liar--and when he meets wealthy widow Betty online, he knows she's an easy mark. In no time at all, he's spinning his web of duplicity and betrayal around her, even moving into her lovely cottage. He's sure his scheme will be a success: she seems ready to build a life with him, and he is ready to reel her in. He's done this before.But who is Roy, really? While this masterful narrative of literature and suspense entwines Roy's and Betty's futures, it also delves deep into their pasts. As the clock turns back and the years fall away, truth will out. Before Roy can close the deal, there is a reckoning to be made.
