She Lies in Wait (Lodge) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews

This enjoyably chilling suspense tale by Gytha Lodge conveys both the thrills and the dangers of being a teenager on the brink of adult independence.… The obvious questions of how [Aurora Jackson] died and at whose hand are properly dealt with. But 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.
Marilyn Stasio - New York Times Book Review

The discovery of [a body] 30 years later… catapults Southampton Det. Chief Insp. Jonah Sheens back to one of his first—and most haunting—investigations.… Lodge smoothly intercuts the present-day… with flashbacks… a promising start to a planned series.
Publishers Weekly

Neatly plotted and nicely atmospheric.… This British import is plausible and eminently satisfying. Encore, please.

(Starred review)  Sheens and his team are compassionate, clever, and likable.… [I]ntrigues and twists, offer… enough red herrings… to please fans of the genre. There are already two more DCI Sheens novels in the works—hooray!
