“My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it.”
Irish author, Liz Nugent has a way with opening lines in her novels. This is just the latest in her new book, LYING IN WAIT (ScoutPress), which once against scares the hell out of us with the opening sentence. She has us hooked, feverishly flipping through the pages.
The last people who expect to be meeting with a drug-addicted prostitute are a respected judge and his reclusive wife. And they certainly don’t plan to kill her and bury her in their exquisite suburban garden.
Yet Andrew and Lydia Fitzsimons find themselves in this unfortunate situation.
While Lydia does all she can to protect their innocent son Laurence and their social standing, her husband begins to falls apart.
But Laurence is not as naïve as Lydia thinks. And his obsession with the dead girl’s family may be the undoing of his own.
Grab LYING IN WAIT as soon as you can. I promise you will rip through it in one day. If you haven’t read her first novel, UNRAVELLING OLIVER, get your hands on a copy. I can’t wait until Liz Nugent’s next novel. I’m on pins and needles.
We have one copy of LYING IN WAIT to giveaway courtesy of Scout Press. Just tell us the latest thriller you’ve read. I ask for this often, because I love seeing what everyone is reading. We’ll announce a winner soon. Good luck.
