A June 2018 Indie Next Pick “An extraordinary novel. Lying in Wait crackles and snaps like a bonfire on a winter’s night; you shudder even as you draw closer to it. Spellbinding.” —A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window From the international bestselling author of Unraveling Oliver, an “unputdownable psychological thriller with an ending that lingers long after turning the final page” (The Irish Times) about a Dublin family whose dark secrets and twisted relationships are suddenly revealed. My husband did not mean to kill Annie Doyle, but the lying tramp deserved it. On the surface, Lydia Fitzsimons has the perfect life—wife of a respected, successful judge, mother to a beloved son, mistress of a beautiful house in Dublin. That beautiful house, however, holds a secret. And when Lydia’s son, Laurence, discovers its secret, wheels are set in motion that lead to an increasingly claustrophobic and devastatingly dark climax. For fans of Ruth Ware and Gillian Flynn, this novel is a “seductively sinister story. The twists come together in a superbly scary denouement, which delivers a final sting in the tail. Brilliantly macabre” (Sunday Mirror).

A true story of the author's meeting of a man whom she now believes to have been the devil's reincarnate... nefarious... evil... soulless... An entity who in the end tried with everything in him to destroy the writer by way of both her spirit and her flesh... a man who provided proof to the writer that true evil does exist, that there is a hell awaiting those who are evil and that the spirit of Satan is both alive and real... Excerpt from the book: ... I thought I had met the perfect man. His name was Nefarious and he made me want to love again. But as time went on, Nefarious began to change. I began to recognize things so dark and sinister within him, as I watched him go from the man that I loved to ultimately being the wolf that had lied in wait for me. A wolf, my wolf, so evil that he moved my watchtower, deceived me into leaving behind my lifeboat and ultimately into losing sight of the lighthouse that had always been in place for me. And it was by way of my wolf, that I was led away from this world and to others. Worlds that were so terrifyingly dark and unforgiving. And for a moment, I left it all behind and stayed in this world. I stayed far beyond the point of rationality and basic human instinct. And it was in this world, his world, that I encountered an indescribable darkness. The place where evil was being housed. And it was during this time that a series of life changing events began to further unfold. Events that shook me and changed me forever as a person... But here's the question: Would you believe me to be crazy, if I told you that I had spent a night in hell? That I had seen the spirits that dwelled there and heard the suffering? That I had encountered Satan himself? Would you make that telephone call that would have me confined and placed into a straitjacket? The headline in the paper reading, "Local Talented Black Writer Loses Her Mind?" Now, when I say that I encountered Satan, I mean that I saw Him with my own eyes, heard Him with my own ears and felt what I believed to be... His hands on me? There are things in this world, in this life, that will happen to you. Things that will forever change who you are and what you believe to be real. For me, meeting Nefarious was that turning point. I believe, The Wolves That Lie in Wait, to not only be my story, but everyone's story. It is the book that will leave you questioning, "Who is the wolf in your life?"

Boasting equal parts scholarship and style, "All Governments Lie" is a highly readable, groundbreaking, and timely look at I. F. Stone -- one of America's most independent and revered journalists, whose work carries the same immediacy it did almost a half century ago, highlighting the ever-present need for dissenting voices. In the world of Washington political journalism, notorious for trading independence for access, I. F. "Izzy" Stone was so unique as to be a genuine wonder. Always skeptical -- "All governments lie, but disaster lies in wait for countries whose officials smoke the same hashish they give out," he memorably quipped -- Stone was ahead of the pack on the most pivotal twentieth-century trends: the rise of Hitler and Fascism, disastrous Cold War foreign policies, covert actions of the FBI and CIA, the greatness of the Civil Rights movement, the horror of Vietnam, the strengths and weaknesses of the antiwar movement, the disgrace of Iran-contra, and the class greed of Reaganomics. His constant barrage against J. Edgar Hoover earned him close monitoring by the FBI from the Great Depression through the Vietnam War, and even an investigation for espionage during the fifties. After making his mark on feisty New York dailies and in The Nation -- scoring such scoops as the discovery of American cartels doing business with Nazi Germany -- Stone became unemployable during the dark days of McCarthyism. Out of desperation he started his four-page I. F. Stone's Weekly, which ran from 1953 to 1971. The first journalist to label the Gulf of Tonkin affair a sham excuse to escalate the Vietnam War, Stone garnered worldwide fans, was read in the corridors of power, and became wealthy. Later, the "world's oldest living freshman" learned Greek to write his bestseller The Trial of Socrates. Here, for the first time, acclaimed journalist and author Myra MacPherson brings the legendary Stone into sharp focus. Rooted in fifteen years of research, this monumental biography includes information from newly declassified international documents and Stone's unpublished five-thousand-page FBI file, as well as personal interviews with Stone and his wife, Esther; with famed modern thinkers; and with the best of today's journalists. It illuminates the vast sweep of turbulent twentieth-century history as well as Stone's complex and colorful life. The result is more than a masterful portrait of a remarkable character; it's a far-reaching assessment of journalism and its role in our culture.
