An Honest Deceit is an intelligent and gripping contemporary psychological thriller that questions not just the motives of others, but the real reasons for discovering the truth.
With An Honest Deceit, Guy Mankowski has invented a new sub-genre in crime fiction. This novel would satisfy even the most discerning reader. I was hooked. I loved it.
Ruth Dugdall, bestselling author of The Sacrificial Man and Nowhere Girl
A mesmerising observation of speaking truth to power. Reminded me of Murakami. Mankowski writes characters that are painfully human and fallible. I finished it in one night.
Hanna Jameson, author of Something You Are and Girl Seven
Guy Mankowski is a great writer. Great in the sense that he is unafraid to tackle a multiplicity of themes, genres and characters. I have read all of his novels and a lot of his short stories and I am consistently entranced with his ability (and a bit jealous that he’s so damn good) – his prose style is lyrical, direct and carefully allows the reader into the story at a pace which makes you want to keep turning the pages, not an easy thing to do at all. An Honest Deceit is yet another tangent from Mankowski. The characters and story are not what I expected, I WANT to tell you what happens – I WANT to reveal details. I loved this book so much I asked my wife to read it and am still asking her each day how far she’s got! The intimacy in the dialogue, the moments that make you stop and read a particular sentence again create an experience you feel you are a part of. I really want to talk to someone about this book – like dissecting a film scene by scene. This is Mankowski’s best novel yet. A book of emotional intelligence. A courageous leap forward in characterisation. A book that confirms what I’ve known for ages. He is one of the best young writers in the UK.
