Release Date: Kindle (25th August 2016) Paperback (9th March 2017)
Publisher: Zaffre
Genres: Crime / mystery /thriller

A man is dead. A woman is missing. And the police have already found their prime suspect... 

Owen Hall drives into a petrol station to let his passenger use the facilities. She never comes back - and what's more, it seems she never even made it inside.

When Owen raises a fuss, the police are called - and soon identify Owen himself as a possible culprit - not least because they already have him in the frame for another more sinister crime.

Owen's always been a little different, and before long others in the community are baying for his blood. But this is a case where nothing is as it seems - least of all Owen Hall...

A dark, addictive thriller, ingeniously plotted with a twist that will make you gasp, LIE IN WAIT is perfect for readers of Angela Marsons or Rachel Abbott.

He can hear them whispering among themselves, pushes past them, knocking over a display stand of chocolate bars in the rush to get outside. Runs over to the pickup truck – she’s not there. Mints still on the front seat. And next to them . . . a brown A4 envelope that’s materialised out of nowhere. He whirls round suddenly, hoping to catch sight of whoever left this here. Reaches in through the driver’s side window and picks up the envelope. Tears it open, watching as its contents spill out onto the seat.
Photos. Four of them. He turns on the interior light and examines them, one by one. And as the attendant calls out to ask if he’s OK, he barely hears him. He’s already in the driver’s seat, fingers fumbling with the ignition key as he tries to ram it into the slot. The engine’s reluctant to catch, takes three attempts before it finally fires up. Then he puts his foot to the floor and races out of the forecourt, working his way through the prime numbers, shouting them at the top of his voice to drown out their insistent gloating and strip them of any powers they think they might have over him.
He’s reached 317 – 66th number in the sequence – before he realises he hasn’t fastened his seat belt or even turned on the headlights.
