From the award-winning author of the number one best seller 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.
"A stunningly talented writer." (Sophie Hannah)
"Clear your diary if you pick up this seductively sinister story. The twists come together in a superbly scary denouement which delivers a final sting in the tail. Brilliantly macabre." ( Sunday Mirror)
"An unputdownable psychological thriller with an ending that lingers long after turning the final page." ( Irish Times)
"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)
"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)
"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)

Delightfully eerie story--Excellent narration
I'm still thinking about this book, several days after finishing it. The writing was gripping, with wonderful character development and an original plot with several unexpected twists. However, as good as the story is, the thing that sets this audiobook apart from the pack is the SUBERB narration by all three readers--absolutely flawless. Highly recommended.

Utterly gripping !!
Wow! I didn't really know what to make of the black humour in the early chapters but as the story develops this chapter by chapter from the perspective of the main players in turn you are taken on a very convincing and thrilling journey.

Any additional comments?
This is an edge of seat crime noir. Beautifully written, with richly drawn characters that really get into your head. The story is unusual, imaginative and gripping. Narration is excellent by all of the several narrators. I highly recommend this great book!
