Lying In Wait

by Liz Nugent

Published 7th July ~ OUT NOW

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
