Lying In Wait




When a mother's love is murder - another gripping story of murder in high places by the author of the No 1 bestselller, Unravelling Oliver.

'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. However, needs must - because nothing can stop this mother from getting what she wants ...

This is a dark, twisty and utterly gripping domestic noir that you won't be able to put down from the author hailed as Ireland's answer to Gillian Flynn.

Praise for Lying In Wait

“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. Brilliantly written”

Marian Keyes

“Deliciously twisted, shot through with dark and acid humour and the denouement is truly chilling”

Sarah Hilary

“Excitement and curiosity mount until you realise you can't put the book down. Highly recommended”

Literary Review

Amanda Redman

“An unputdownable psychological thriller with an ending that lingers in the mind long after turning the final page”
