Editorial Reviews

Review

Chan's...pulpy psychological thriller is not for the faint of heart.... Author Chan has crafted a fast-paced, complicated thriller that is not short on twists. An efficient storyteller, Chan skillfully weaves together numerous plot threads.

Format: Kindle Edition
All in all a great combination. A young Lucinda was kidnapped and tortured. A grown up, screwed up Lucinda sometimes misses those carefree days. Her search for love is a treacherous one. I started reading thinking I'd read a chapter or two but couldn't put it down. While at times the dark content is painful reading, Author Chan is funny. It's the humor that makes the tragedy bearable. The story keeps you guessing which makes you have to turn the pages till you get to the satisfying conclusion. I really liked this book. And I'll be celebrating my weekaversaries from now on.

Format: Paperback
A psychologically penetrating thriller with a heart and a sense of
humor, Lying in Wait is the best book I've read in quite some time.
Damaged by unspeakable sexual abuse, Lucinda McConnell has constructed a
life for herself based on the avoidance of other people. Penn Stone, a
sadistic genius, who creates lurid tabloid headlines by luring his
former lovers to their deaths, has chosen her as his next victim. But he
underestimates Lucinda's inner strength and ability to engineer a turn
of events that even he could not have imagined.

This novel scared me like no other in recent history of reading edgy books. In light of what happened to those three women we read about recently, who were held in captivity for many years, bad things can happen to good people in real life as well. I like the main character, Lucinda, who becomes an intrepid survivor despite the damaging event in her former life

Not to be missed; Chan creates despicable characters, but also characters who find the courage, somewhere within, to face evil and to survive. Chan had me on page one.

Wow! Twisted but brilliant. Dark as a black hole but bright as an exploding supernova. A fable of the redemptive power of love with enough hate to satisfy the most cynical among us. Terrifying, poignant and heartbreaking, but laugh out loud funny. Lying in Wait is a fable that reminds us how our lives are shaped by tragedy, what we gain and the price we pay. One of the best novels I've read in years. If you wish to be moved and astonished, read it. If you want to give a dazzling present, buy it for your friends.
