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 denouncement, 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?"

Destined to become a modern classic, "Its Wildness Lies in Wait" is the definitive guide to not getting played by the lottery. Record-setting lottery jackpots occur regularly around the world, but great riches seem to lie just outside our grasp. So we look for an edge: by using lotto websites, books, software, systems (or wheels), and even the supernatural. But is there an edge? Or is there really no way to increase our chances of winning the lottery, short of buying more tickets? It's time to finally set the record straight by dispelling the many myths surrounding the lottery. In a landmark new book, Mark Jones Lorenzo picks apart dozens of loud, flashy, and false lottery myths. And he argues persuasively that lotto systems, software, and other popular techniques and methods supposedly designed to provide players an advantage are mostly deceptive pseudoscientific nonsense, not satisfying the criteria of mathematical soundness, statistical rigor, or empirical efficacy.Lorenzo, a longtime instructor of mathematics, offers up a sophisticated, carefully reasoned, and powerful meditation on the lottery, exhaustively exploring the many strains of thought in lottery literature from a mathematical, statistical, psychological, philosophical, epistemological, and historical perspective, as well as decoding the computer algorithms--such as full- and abbreviated-wheel creation, historical data analysis, and quick picks' generation, among others--powering lotto software. What's more, the cognitive biases that may help explain why we find ourselves mentally stuck--not just when thinking about the lottery, but with mathematical probabilities in general--are detailed. From the well-known gambler's fallacy to the newly minted distribution-confusion fallacy, understanding how the illusions of control and the limits of prediction muddy the waters is paramount to lotto myth-busting.Brimming with pop culture references, fresh anecdotes, and real-world examples, "Its Wildness Lies in Wait" has much to offer the lottery novice and expert alike. You'll never play the lotto in quite the same way again after you learn how to spot the lottery lies which lie in wait.

In 1656, Diego Velázquez, leading figure in the Spanish Golden Age of painting, created one of the most enigmatic works in the history of art: Las Meninas (The Ladies-in-Waiting). This graphic novel, written and drawn by two of Spain’s most sophisticated comics creators, examines its legacy as one of the first paintings to explore the relationship among the viewer, reality, and unreality. (It guest stars Cano, Salvador Dalí, Zurbarán, and many others.) Olivares’s art moves from clear line to expressionistic; from pen nib to brush stokes; from one color palette to another, as The Ladies-in-Waiting uses fiction to explore the ties among artists and patrons, the past and the present, institutions and audiences, creators and creativity. Their combined efforts have garnered not only international comics prizes, but the equivalent of the National Book Award in Spain, where the book has been a commercial and critical sensation.
