Spellbinding.' A J Finn, bestselling author of The Woman in the Window 'A stunningly talented writer' Sophie Hannah 'Devastating ... exquisitely uncomfortable, utterly captivating' Publishers Weekly 'The intricate plotting and jolting suspense hold you in a vice till the last page' Sunday Times '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 'Clear your diary if you pick up this seductively sinister story.

Read this dark, captivating psychological thriller to find out why' People Magazine 'I thought it impossible to match the brilliant Unravelling Oliver, but this Liz has done. Not only is her style beautiful, but 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 'She writes compellingly, creates posh sociopaths like no-one else and doesn't flinch when the end demands what it demands. Lying In Wait is a story you genuinely should not miss' Rick O'Shea, RT
