On January 9, 2017

By Sophia Whitfield

Start 2017 with a dark, twisted novel by Liz Nugent. Lying in Wait is a psychological thriller in a domestic setting. If you enjoyed Gone Girl then Nugentís latest novel will not disappoint.

The book opens with the line:
'My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it.'

Lydia Fitzsimons lives in a beautiful house with her husband and son. She adores her son and is distraught when they have to withdraw Laurence from private school after her husband loses money in a private venture. Her only concession is that they manage to keep their family home.

Lydia has never worked and yearns for one thing to complete her family. Her dogged pursuit of her dream ends in disaster.

Nugent draws her dark characters with adept precision building the tension as the novel comes to its brutal conclusion.

A compelling novel that will keep you up at night.

You can buy the book here in Australia and here in the UK.
