Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of She Lies in Wait by Gytha Lodge, read by John Hopkins, Aimee-Ffion Edwards, Joe Coen and Gytha Lodge. 

Six friends. One killer. Whom do you trust? 

On a hot July night in 1983, six school friends go camping in the forest. Bright and brilliant, they are destined for great things, and young Aurora Jackson is dazzled to be allowed to tag along. 

Thirty years later, a body is discovered. DCI Sheens is called to the scene, but he already knows what's waiting for him: Aurora Jackson, found at long last. 

But that's not all. The friends have all maintained their innocence, but the body is found in a hideaway only the six of them knew about. 

It seems the killer has always lurked very close to home....

A masterclass in detection and narration


This is a fabulous first book and Jonah Sheens goes straight up there as one of the most original fictional detectives. The story is so gripping and unlike many books like this the solution was absolutely satisfying. A word on the narration – perfect. I don’t normally enjoy books with multiple narrators but this felt so natural. A brilliant five star audiobook.

Highly enjoyable "unforgotten" style murder myster

Great story, clear and well read performances. I like that different voices read the chapters told from different character perspectives. Found myself gripped as the story wound to its climax, unable to stop listening!

Disappointing !

I found this book very slow and boring. Nothing about it to keep me on the edge of my seat.

A great listen

This was my first book with audible and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The reading was wonderful with clear by gripping narration and the story itself was a riveting listen. Highly recommend for any interested in crime fiction.

meh

Struggled to finish it. The characters were one dimensional and unlikable, and I guessed the killer pretty much immediately. Huge disappointment as it did sound promising.
