Publisher Description

NOW A SUNDAY TIMES TOP 10 BESTSELLER 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 small English town, about to pull off his final con. 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?

Review

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, bestselling author of 'Love, Nina' and 'Man at the Helm' A cracking read Graham Norton, BBC Radio 2 A confident debut...an easy page-turner Grazia A perfectly entertaining way to spend a few hours Sunday Times Searle shows a gift for complex plotting. The Good Liar is packed with secrets and surprises, bluffs and double-bluffs Daily Telegraph An incredibly dark, taut thriller...it deserves to be a bestseller. Think of Ruth Rendell morphing into John le Carre Daily Express All the ingredients are in this book...You're in safe hands with Searle's elegant writing The Times The Good Liar is a taut, compulsive thriller with a dark, intriguing heart. A Mr Ripley for our time -- Jonathan Freedland A part-thriller, part-human condition novel that packs a tremendous punch Financial Times This is set to be one of the books of the year that will get everyone talking....If you go in with absolutely no preconceptions, you will have your socks knocked, nay, blown off Stylist An assured thriller debut in the footsteps of le Carre, Highsmith and Rendell...The Good Liar makes you want to experience Nicholas Searle's next trick Guardian
