From the internationally bestselling author of Lying in Wait, a biting and masterful new "dark jewel of a novel" (A.J. Finn, #1New York Times bestselling author) that explores the many ways families can wreak emotional havoc across generations, appealing to fans of HBO's acclaimed series Succession. All three of the Drumm brothers were at the funeral.But one of them was in the coffin.William, Brian, and Luke: three boys, born a year apart, trained from birth by their wily mother to compete for her attention. They play games, as brothers do...yet even after the Drumms escape into the world beyond their windows, those games--those little cruelties--grow more sinister, more merciless, and more dangerous. And with their lives entwined like the strands of a noose, only two of the brothers will survive. Hailed by New York Times bestselling author Shari Lapena as "brilliant, engrossing," and perfect for fans of breathtaking suspense, Little Cruelties gazes unflinchingly into the darkness collecting in the corners of childhood homes, hiding beneath marriage beds, clasped in the palms of two brothers shaking hands. And it confirms that Liz Nugent is truly "a force to be reckoned with" (Lisa Jewell, New York Times bestselling author) in contemporary fiction.
