Review

"My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it." ... Lydia Fitzsimons lives in the perfect house with her adoring husband and beloved son. There is just one thing Lydia yearns for to make her perfect life complete, though the last thing she expects is that pursuing it will lead to murder . . . (From the Publisher's Description)

Gone Girl fans will love Liz Nugent's Lying in Wait ... it twists, it turns, its characters are utterly despicable and it is a compulsive triumph (Stylist)

A stunningly talented writer (Sophie Hannah)

A tense, taut, almost gothic thriller where the tension tightens to near unbearable proportions. I devoured it in one sitting because it was impossible to stop reading. A brilliantly written, stand-out novel (Marian Keyes)

Deliciously twisted, shot through with dark and acid humour and the denouement is truly chilling (Sarah Hilary)

A gradual descent from ordinary, straightforward murder to the very heart of darkness. Liz Nugent's characters are as unforgettably monstrous as they are believable ... superbly crafted (Jane Casey)

She keeps the reader on the edge of their seat from page one until the completely unexpected ending. I read Lying in Wait in one sitting. I just couldn't bear the suspense. I absolutely loved it (Amanda Redman)

From the Back Cover

'A stunningly talented writer' Sophie Hannah

Lydia Fitzsimons lives in the perfect house with her adoring husband and beloved son. There is just one thing Lydia craves to make her life complete, and she is determined that her husband will get it for her. The last thing she expects is that her obsession will lead to murder.

However, not even a dead body can stop Lydia in her tracks. If anything, it makes her more determined to get her own way - whatever the cost ...

'It twists, it turns, it is a compulsive pulp triumph' Stylist

'A tense, taut, almost gothic thriller where the tension tightens to near unbearable proportions. I devoured it in one sitting' Marian Keyes

'Deliciously twisted ... the denouement is truly chilling.' Sarah Hilary

'Excitement and curiosity mount until you realise you can't put the book down' Literary Review

'I just couldn't bear the suspense. I absolutely loved it' Amanda Redman

'An unputdownable psychological thriller with an ending that lingers in the mind long after turning the final page.' Irish Times
