Description de l’éditeur

The No. 1 Bestseller

'It twists, it turns, its characters are utterly despicable, and it is a compulsive triumph' Stylist

'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 . . .


'What an extraordinary novel ... crackles and snaps like a bonfire on a winter's night; you shudder even as you draw closer to it. 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. The twists come together in a superbly scary denouncement which delivers a final sting in the tail. Brilliantly macabre' Sunday Mirror

'Brilliant plotting ratchets up the tension in this chilling tale of obsessive love, madness and motherhood' Woman & Home

'The wit is sharp and the plot full of punishing twists' The Times Crime Club

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

'Lydia is a Gothic villain for the ages ... a page-turner chock full of lies and betrayals' Kirkus Reviews

'An excellent example of "Domestic Noir" ... excitement and curiosity mount until you realise you can't put the book down. Highly recommended' Literary Review

'A tense, taut, almost gothic thriller where the tension tightens to near unbearable proportions ... impossible to stop reading. A brilliantly written, stand-out novel' Marian Keyes

'Deliciously twisted . . . truly chilling' Sarah Hilary

'Liz Nugent's characters are as unforgettably monstrous as they are believable. A superbly crafted novel and an absorbing portrait of the purest kind of evil' Jane Casey

'It spoils nothing to tell you now that Lydia and Andrew Fitzsimons have murdered a young prostitute. 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, RTÉ
