The final review title of the Richard and Judy Book Club Spring 2017 is Lying in Wait by Liz Nugent. A compelling and disturbing psychological thriller, Lying in Wait is about a very respectable couple living in Dublin in the 1980’s who murder a young prostitute and bury her in their back garden. The intense and emotionally dark story unravels as we find out what motivated them to kill her and they face the consequences of their actions.
Richard and Judy caught up with Liz Nugent to ask her about how she thought of the idea for her novel, the relationship between mother and son, her writing process and what she would be if she wasn’t an author. Have a listen to the podcast below to hear a reading from Lying in Wait by Liz Nugent herself and find out more about the inspiration behind it.
