Overview

Lie In Wait by Eric Rickstad

From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Silent Girls comes another unforgettable thriller set in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, featuring Detective Sonja Test

Even in a quiet Vermont town, unspeakable acts of the past can destroy the peace of the present.

In the remote pastoral hamlet of Canaan, Vermont, a high-profile legal case shatters the town’s sense of peace and community. Anger simmers. Fear and prejudice awaken. Old friends turn on each other. Violence threatens.

So when a young teenage girl is savagely murdered while babysitting at the house of the lead attorney in the case, Detective Sonja Test believes the girl’s murder and the divisive case must be linked.

However, as the young detective digs deeper into her first murder case, she discovers sordid acts hidden for decades, and learns that behind the town’s idyllic façade of pristine snow lurks a capacity in some for great darkness and the betrayal of innocents. And Sonja Test, a mother of two, will do anything to protect the innocent.

“Gripping, topical, and wrenching—everything you want in a top-flight mystery.”—Meg Gardiner, Edgar® Award-winning Author

This was a great thriller that was well written and kept me guessing until the end. Detectives North and Test were interesting characters. If you like a mystery that you can't put down, this is it.

There didn't seem to be as much character development in this one. I kept wanting Rath from Silent Girls to show up. But once again, I didn't know who did it till the end.

I am leary about how Barnes has let so many ANONYMOUS want to post. Seems like there is too many doing this, and makes me wonder just whats going on with Barnes and the folks who are allowed to do this. From what I understand, this may be the authors friends, sad. just sad.

I really enjoyed the mystery in this novel. I first purchased the book in hopes of a continuation with the Frank Rath storyline. Instead we follow Sonja Test and I found that I did not miss Frank that much. I hope the author continues to give us more on Detective Test.

A great thriller drawn out somewhat by Test but a good book.

The characters were under-developed and difficult to connect with. Their actions were implausable. I kept thinking this book was going to go somewhere but it just fell flat. Disappointed.

Ending was kind of abrupt. Story was good though somewhat predictable. A good deal for 99 cents.

Absolutely engrossing. It has all the atmosphere and mystery of The Silent Girls but with a different main character.

Grammatical errors drove me crazy. Plot was better than the writing that presented it.
