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

Guardian

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

The Times

An incredibly dark, taut thriller...it deserves to be a bestseller. Think of Ruth Rendell morphing into John le Carré

Sunday Times

A confident debut...an easy page-turner

Grazia

A cracking read

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'

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.

Daily Mail

Twists and turns galore!

The Bookseller

One of 2016's most intriguing debut novels

Independent

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, bestselling author of 'In a Dark, Dark Wood'

Searle's relish in telling his dark tale and his taste for bitter irony will be savoured by anybody missing their annual fix of Ruth Rendell

Sunday Express

A wily tale of a much larger, more traumatic and multifaceted deception than initially anticipated...

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 why is this beautiful woman so willing to be his next victim?
