Little Cruelties

by Liz Nugent


Three brothers are at the funeral. One lies in the coffin.

Will, Brian and Luke grow up competing for their mother's unequal love. As men, the competition continues - for status, money, fame, women ...

They each betray each other, over and over, until one of them is murdered.
But which one?

"MAGNIFICENT. Her best yet, and that's really saying something"

Marian Keyes

Lying In Wait

by Liz Nugent

#1 Bestseller

From the award-winning author of the No 1 bestseller, Unravelling Oliver, comes another absorbing, twisty, brilliantly observed story of murder in high places.

'My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it.'

The last people who expect to be meeting with a drug-addicted prostitute are a respected judge and his reclusive wife. And they certainly don't plan to kill her and bury her in their exquisite suburban garden.

"Taut, crisp, clear, a storm-warning of a book. It has the eeriness of 'The Turn of the Screw'; but as these screws turn, a mighty tension takes hold. Masterly."

Sebastian Barry
