Lying in Wait Liz Nugent Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

From the author of the international bestseller Unraveling Oliver comes a “truly outstanding” (Crime by the Book), brilliantly plotted, utterly immersive novel lauded by A.J. Finn—#1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window—as “extraordinary…crackles and snaps like a bonfire on a winter’s night.”

My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it.

On the surface, Lydia Fitzsimons's life seems idyllic. Her husband, Andrew, is a prosperous, respected judge; they live in the spacious, comfortable, well-appointed house where she was raised. And she is utterly, obsessively devoted to her son, Laurence—her adored only child, her pride and joy.

But Andrew's murder of Annie Doyle, accidental or not, sets into motion a dark downward spiral. It doesn’t take long for Laurence to suspect that something is very, very wrong in the Fitzsimons household—and he is determined to discover the truth.

For fans of Ruth Ware and Gillian Flynn, Lying in Wait is “a devastating psychological thriller...an exquisitely uncomfortable, utterly captivating reading experience” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

    I don’t usually write reviews but this book was such a waste of time! The ending was awful and the characters were all so unlikeable!! Please do yourself a favor and just skip this book!
  • A real page turner

    A real page turner, there are a few I’m probabilities in the plot but it’s easy to ignore those because it’s not a serious read or a book that takes itself seriously... it’s pure entertainment and 100% engaging.

    What you have is a weak husband, overbearing obsessed evil self centered wife, with a son. All American dysfunctional family. The story has twist and turns, not crazy about the end I think the wife should have been found out and punished.
  • Horrible Ending!

    So disappointed! This book was super hard to get through because most of the characters had NO redeeming qualities! The end of the book was HORRIBLE, so I basically wasted my time AND my money! I do not recommend at all!
