This is a man who has lied all his life.

Reviews for The Good Liar: Now a Major Film Starring Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen

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' * A cracking read * Graham Norton, BBC Radio 2 * A confident easy page-turner * Grazia * A perfectly entertaining way to spend a few hours * Sunday Times * Searle shows a gift for complex plotting. The Good Liar is packed with secrets and surprises, bluffs and double-bluffs * Daily Telegraph * An incredibly dark, taut deserves to be a bestseller. Think of Ruth Rendell morphing into John le Carre * Daily Express * All the ingredients are in this book...You're in safe hands with Searle's elegant writing * The Times * The Good Liar is a taut, compulsive thriller with a dark, intriguing heart. A Mr Ripley for our time A part-thriller, part-human condition novel that packs a tremendous punch * Financial Times * 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 * Stylist * An assured thriller debut in the footsteps of le Carre, Highsmith and Rendell...The Good Liar makes you want to experience Nicholas Searle's next trick * Guardian *
