The Good Liar by Nicholas Searle

Penguin(UK) Viking

Description: 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?

Opening: It is, Roy thinks, perfect. Kismet, serendipity, destiny, happenstance; call it what you will. All of these things rolled into one.

John Graham, 1st Viscount of Dundee (1648-1689)

Given that this book is not due to be published until January 2016, I feel it premature to dissect the story line, however, does anyone here remember Juke Box Jury? I predict this book will be a HIT on the high street, yet a certain issue will give rise to heated debate, and it is that issue that keeps this under the 4* threshold for me.

I do look forward to reading everyone’s review next year.
