The Good Liar by Nicholas Searle

About the Book
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 and slip away with her life savings. But who is the man behind the con? 

What has he had to do to survive a life of lies?

And who has had to pay the price?

Nicholas Searle’s debut novel, The Good Liar, quite an interesting and well-constructed read. He builds a fascinating cast of characters, as Roy attempts his final con on Betty and discovers it may not go as well as initially anticipated, and I couldn’t put this book down as I followed along with them. Searle winds his narrative through twists and turns with intriguing flashbacks into Roy’s past, showing the past that brought him to the current moment. Overall, I can easily say that The Good Liar is a thrilling read and will not leave interested readers disappointed.
