內容簡介


謊言.秘密.背叛.救贖,一切都埋藏在久遠的過去……

一個終其一生行騙的詐欺慣犯,現已垂垂老矣,仍對眼前的「獵物」抱著十足的自信,但事情真會如他所想像的進行嗎?

《獨立報》:「2016年最有趣的首部小說之一。」

詐欺慣犯Roy已經八十多歲,仍然老當益壯,行騙功力依然不減。他在交友網站上,認識同樣年老但富裕的寡婦Betty,很快就搬進她的小屋,甚至準備與她一同踏上浪漫的歐洲之旅。Betty是太過於容易得手的目標,Roy很確定這次的詭計萬無一失,她的畢生積蓄,只等著落入他的手中……但真是如此嗎?

Roy為甚麼選擇以說謊度過一生?他擁有什麼樣的過去?真正的Roy,究竟是個什麼樣的人?Betty真的只是盲目地相信著Roy的花言巧語、被蒙在谷底嗎?她有什麼目的?

當背後的一切,竟然得追溯回第二次世界大戰,故事才正要開始……


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. He will swiftly move in with her and together they will live the seemingly calm life of a retired couple - evenings in front of the television, a little holiday in Berlin. Then he will 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?
