Editorial Reviews

Review

“An extraordinary novel. Lying in Wait crackles and snaps like a bonfire on a winter’s night; you shudder even as you draw closer to it. Spellbinding.”  -- A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

“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, author of Days Without End

“A tense, taut, almost gothic thriller…impossible to stop reading.” -- Marian Keyes, New York Times bestselling author

"Like Unraveling Oliver (2017), this is a whydunit, not a whodunit, and the real meat lies in Nugent's exploration of motherhood, mental illness, and what could drive a person to murder...  A page-turner chock full of lies and betrayals and a very creepy mother-son relationship." ― Kirkus Reviews

"A devastating psychological thriller... Lydia is the most intriguing puzzle; equal parts victim and villain, she simultaneously inspires pity, outrage, and horror. The result is an exquisitely uncomfortable, utterly captivating reading experience."  ― Publishers Weekly (starred and boxed review)

"[A] chilling tale of the sociopathic mind… Readers who love sinister psychological thrillers will tear through these pages." ― Library Journal (starred review)

“Nugent introduces an unforgettable cast of characters in this tour de force…astonishing....everyone should grab it the second it appears."   ― Booklist (starred review)

“[A] dark, captivating psychological thriller.” ― PEOPLE

"Truly outstanding." ― Crime by the Book

"Just when you think you have things figured out, Nugent throws everything off-kilter again. All of the primary characters --- including the dead woman, Annie --- are complicated and well-rounded...and defy easy categorization as “villain” or “hero.” Readers who first encountered Nugent’s work only recently will be thrilled with this new-to-us thriller --- and will be thronging for even more of her excellent work to make its way across the pond."

  ― BookReporter
