The Good Liar by Nicholas Searle

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 and 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?

The Good Liar is shortlisted for the 2016 CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger award
and is Nicholas Searle’s debut novel.

Peer & Press Reviews

An assured thriller debut in the footsteps of le Carré, Highsmith and Rendell… The Good Liar makes you want to experience Nicholas Searle’s next trick.


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

As the tension mounts, the reader is kept guessing: is Roy going to be rumbled?  Is Betty as guileless as she seems?  The final denouement is a real cracker, and this reader at any rate was led through the nose to the very end.  Added to the fiendishly clever plot, Searle’s writing is both drily amusing and elegantly crafted.  An absolute treat of a book.
