A GRISLY CRIME

On a day that seems perfectly ordinary, Alice Halpern waits for her best friend at the playground where they always meet with their children in their comfortable Brooklyn neighborhood. But when Lauren doesn't come home, then fails to pick her son up from school, a normal day turns into a nightmare-and Alice begins to realize that nothing will ever be ordinary again.

A GROWING FEAR

The police desperately search for Lauren, who is nearly nine months pregnant. Alice, herself pregnant, realizes she's being followed and has the creeping fear that she and her unborn twins are in danger. As the investigation intensifies, Alice is shocked as her familiar world begins to unravel. And as new life grows within her, she must fight to save her family-and herself...

Editorial Reviews

Harriet Klausner
"Besides being a great thriller, Here She Lies gives readers an incredible look at the consequences of identity theft and how it impacts the victims. Annie's love for her sterile twin is so strong and so deep that thinking bad thoughts about her sibling feels like a betrayal of the person she loves most next to her daughter. Bobby is a great character willing to be dominated by a stronger woman. [Katia Lief] rolls up the tension in this cleverly written suspense laden urban crime thriller."
Angela Etheridge
"[Katia Lief] takes identity theft to the next level in Here She Lies. The novel is disturbing, and readers will be stunned by the horrendous twists in Ms. [Lief]'s tale....A heart-pounding summer read, Here She Lies is tailor-made for mystery fans."
Huntress Reviews
"If you love Alfred Hitchcock classic mysteries, then do not hesitate to buy this book. Just when you think you know what is going on, a new twist springs a fresh revelation on you. Not until the very last page do the shocks end. This is a fascinating read, plain and simple."
MyShelf .com
"A cast of strong, intelligent characters involved in complex relationships behave as sensibly as any of us could when the earth drops away and leaves us in freefall. Like Annie, the reader may have some idea of what's happening, but [Lief] manages to throw enough curve balls to keep the tension high throughout, maintaining suspense right up to the final sentence and leaving the reader with a resolution that is both intriguing and satisfying."
Sheila Leitzel
"The author has picked the timely topic of identity theft and adds a unique twist by weaving murder into the mix. Just who is trying to destroy Annie's life is a mystery up until the end. Even though she's a strong character, Annie shows a realistically vulnerable side when it comes to her sister by turning a blind eye to the possibility of Julie's guilt. And Bobby? In my opinion, not very likeable but then I expect alpha males in my storylines and not a man willing to submit to a...dominant?...

    Not a good summer read for me

    The writing was fairly good, but the subject was a little dark for summer reading.
