    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
