. . . * 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 *
