A stunning and suspenseful feat of storytelling, The Good Liar unravels the past of a man who lives to deceive.
Like Patricia Highsmith s Tom Ripley, veteran con artist Roy is a born liar and when he meets wealthy widow Betty online, he knows she s an easy mark. In no time at all, he s spinning his web of duplicity and betrayal around her, even moving into her lovely cottage. He s sure his scheme will be a success. He s done this before.
But who is Roy, really? While this masterful narrative of literary suspense entwines Roy s and Betty s futures, it also delves deeply into their pasts. As the clock turns back and the years fall away, truth will out. Before Roy can close the deal, there is a reckoning to be made.
How many lies will it take to make him finally tell the truth?"
