Product Details

Praise

“Gripping.”Publishers Weekly

“Readers will enjoy the fast pace, red herrings, and intriguing characters in this British police procedural­–slash–psychological thriller.”—Booklist
 
“Lodge alternates between chapters following the investigation into Zoe’s death and chapters that recount the final twenty months of her life, allowing the reader to understand Zoe as a fully rounded and complicated character, not just a victim. This choice, trendy in thrillers but almost always effective when the characters are strong, consistently reminds us to look beyond simplistic binaries of victim and perpetrator, innocent and guilty, and recognize that all humans make problematic choices, sometimes for good reasons and sometimes for bad. Lodge’s choices celebrate the complexity of humanity and elevate this police procedural.”Kirkus Reviews

Praise for She Lies in Wait

“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

“Classic detective fiction at its best! Lodge paints an absorbing tale of murder—and more—involving a cast of superbly drawn characters. Rarely does a book so seamlessly blend the past and the present, building edge-of-the-seat suspense to the very final scene, all the while offering up piercing psychological insight that draws us in as completely as the plot.” —Jeffery Deaver, author of The Never Game and The Bone Collector 

“A novel that literally makes you hold your breath, then gasp out loud.”—Val McDermid

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