The Waiting Game You Never Know Who's Watching ... Press Reviews

a very satisfying psychological thriller -- Chris Curran this is a very good second book, at least the equal of Hunting Shadows, with which it shares the same psychological insights and chilling climax -- There are murder mysteries, police procedurals and psychological thrillers - and then there are books which combine elements of all three. The Waiting Game is one of these ... It's a tangled web of a plot, and though the reader knows more than the police do from the outset, through frequent shifts in viewpoint which allow the story to emerge from several different directions, the final dramatic reveal is still a surprise. Bugler handles the complex structure deftly, dropping in subtle hints and stopping short of giving too much away too soon. Her villains and potential suspects are as well-rounded as the good guys, and she sets up some interestingly flawed characters and scratchy relationships among Ellen's colleagues. The less salubrious end of south London is drawn in detail too, and she also doesn't pull back from graphic accounts of mutilation and killing methods ... a fluent read ... a page-turning plot -- Promoting Crime one of the rising stars of Irish literature -- Clare People full of chilling twists and turns, I found the story gripping ... overall an enjoyable read with plenty to hold the interest -- Fiction is Stranger Than Fact
