Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Good Liar by Nicholas Searle, read by Martin Jarvis.
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, 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?

"A different kind of war story"
I think this book is being woefully undersold. It's a cracking yarn about a very intriguing character. It's also got an interesting take on WWII, though that doesn't seem to appear in any of the blurb. If you like a well written, tightly plotted mystery and darkly charismatic lead characters then this is certainly one not to be missed!
"the good liar"
Excellent and well read. Why hasn't it been made into a film what a plot
"Clever, but lacks any human touch"
Wouldn't read anything more by this author. Contrived and superficial - and long-winded with it. He can write very suspensefully from time to time, but the central idea of this book is too thin.
