Product Details


“This enjoyably chilling suspense tale . . . conveys both the thrills and the dangers of being a teenager on the brink of adult independence. . . . The fascination of this story is in the character studies of the surviving children, all grown up now and participants in a dark mystery that they all wish had never seen the light of day.”The New York Times Book Review

She Lies in Wait is gothic, twisting, and compelling. Like Tana French, Lodge explodes what a police procedural can do, turning it rich and atmospheric.”—Flynn Berry, author of Under the Harrow and A Double Life

“The mystery intrigues and twists, offering enough red herrings and moments of police procedural to please fans of the genre.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Neatly plotted and nicely atmospheric . . . This British import is plausible and eminently satisfying. Encore, please.”Booklist

“What a marvel! A corkscrew-twisty, knife-sharp thriller—yet it doubles as a tender ode to loss and longing. Prepare to be haunted.”—A. J. Finn, author of the New York Times bestseller The Woman in the Window

“A dark, deep, terrific thriller and a scorching portrait of friendship and its betrayal.”—Nicci French, author of Day of the Dead 

“A superior crime book . . . I loved it.”—Marian Keyes, author of The Break

She Lies in Wait delivers on just about every level—a killer premise, an absorbing plot that twists and turns at just the right pace, and a lead detective who has hit the page fully formed and instantly likeable. One to watch!”—Caz Frear, author of Sweet Little Lies

“Most enjoyable—Gytha Lodge is a skilled storyteller and she weaves such an intricate plot. The book hooked me early on and kept me up way past my bedtime for several nights! The team of detectives Lodge has put together is top notch. All in all, it’s a very satisfying read.”—James Oswald, author of The Gathering Dark

“A stunner . . . well plotted, brilliant characters, beautifully written: a sure-fire hit.”—Jo Spain, author of The Confession
