Editorial Reviews

Bookgasm - Mark Rose
"One Cold Night is one of those fast-paced weekend reads, with some wonderful law enforcement characters...a great common-man deconstruction of Nabokov's LOLITA, and—at its core—a heart that cares about the people within its pages."
Rendezvous Review Magazine - Rendezvous Review
"I was sucked into the book like Harry Potter and felt I was living each minute...The story is full of nuanced characters that make it come alive. Add that to the jagged emotions, incredible tension and gritty street feel and you've got a really good book."

(winner of the May 2006 Rosebud of the Month Award--Rendezvous Review Magazine)
New Mystery Reader - Stephanie Padilla
"[Lief] hits all the right notes with intelligence and compassion in this very taut tale of past mistakes and ruined souls...we can see an author who has much more to offer than the standard suspense...leaving the reader eagerly looking forward to the next."
Book Fetish
"Jam-packed with heart stopping suspense, One Cold Night is a book not to be missed. Ms. [Lief] has a magnificent way of bringing each character to life in this very fascinating and intriguing tale."
Mysteries Galore - Nancy Eaton
"We know that when [Katia Lief] writes a book it is going to be a thriller and she does not disappoint the reader with this one. This is an engrossing read that has many twists and turns. This book is highly recommended."

    Recommend this. A good read.

    I like the Strauss husband and wife, and the daughter is believable.
    It gives away the abductor too soon, but still a good read.

    Not good

    It didnt hold my interest AT ALL, and i am a huge fan of these types of books (mystery and crime) and can usually get into just about every book in this genre. But, not this one. Glad it was only 99 cents.

    A good starter

    The story was better after the first few chapters. It was a bit wordy and repetative at times but the end made up for most of it. If you lhave a cold winter night and have some time, this book will keep you entertained.

    One ColdNight

    Great read with twist and turns that keep your mind moving. A missing girl, possible shattered love by listening to what her parents thoufht best "for the family". Sad how life all intertwines and you never know what to expect.

    Not great

    A dull read for me, but others have clearly enjoyed it. I thought the storyline was a bit thin and there wasnt much content. Could have been a decent short story.

    Good thriller

    The writing was a bit rough around the edges at times, But it progressively improves as the book unfolds. Interesting plot, likeable characters, and really engaging dialogue. You will have trouble putting this nail-biter down for more than a few minutes at a time.
