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
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.
