Lying in Wait starts with a bang and is very well plotted. Its structure is clever and rotates around three narrators and covers three time-frames telling the story of Annie Doyle’s demise. Most of the time, it was interesting to read the incidents from different viewpoints and, as the story went on, you had a sense of peeling back more and more layers of complexity and intrigue.
However – and I know I’m in the minority here – on some occasions the chapters were a bit monotonous and unfortunately I struggled to warm to most of the characters. The ending, despite being a pretty clever twist, I’m afraid left me a little bit deflated.
Thank you to NetGalley and Penguin Books (UK) for the opportunity to read the ARC.
