From the award-winning author of the No 1 bestseller, Unravelling Oliver.
'My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it.'
Closing date: 11/10/2018
'A stunningly talented writer Sophie Hannah A tense, taut, almost gothic thriller where the tension tightens to near unbearable proportions. I devoured it in one sitting because it was impossible to stop reading. A brilliantly written, stand-out novel' Marian Keyes
'Deliciously twisted, shot through with dark and acid humour and the denouement is truly chilling' Sarah Hilary
'A gradual descent from ordinary, straightforward murder to the very heart of darkness. Liz Nugent's characters are as unforgettably monstrous as they are believable ... superbly crafted' Jane Casey
'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
'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
