Editorial Reviews

Richard Montanari on YOU ARE NEXT
“Katia Lief skillfully weaves a complex tale of an emotionally scarred central character, nail-biting suspense, and a diabolical killer that will grip you until the very last page. I can’t wait for the next Detective Karin Schaeffer thriller.”
Terri Ann Armstrong author of Morning Menace and Executive Editor for Suspense Magazine
“Lief pens a diabolically brilliant story and takes us on an amazing, wild ride.”

    Highly recommended! This was a riveting fourth installment to a series I have loved from the first book. Really suspenseful, couldn't put this down. I've read most of Katia Lief's books and recommend them all, she's one of my favorites.

    Profanity

    I have loved the Karin Schaeffer series & was excited when this new one came out. It was well written & interesting like her other books, but i was dismayed at the way she used the name of Jesus. Examples: Jesus f...ing Christ, Jesus f...ing Mother of God.

    The ugly profane phrases were gratuitous and did not contribute to the book in any way.

    Sometimes an offer is too good to be true. That¿s what happens

    Sometimes an offer is too good to be true. That’s what happens to former NYC police detective Seamus (“Mac”) MacLeary, now a private investigator, when he is offered an easy half-day job in London for an exorbitant fee and a house-swapping vacation on an Italian island. Without thinking, he grabs the offer; the consequences are enormous.

    Mac is now specializing in marital infidelities, and is approached by the wife of billionaire Godfrey Millerhausen to investigate what she believes to be an affair. It seems that if one can be proved, it would nullify a pre-nuptial agreement which would cut her off from lots of money. If the midst of Mac’s surveillance, he receives a lucrative offer from a respected organization, and suspends his investigation into the Millerhausen marital situation. He goes to London with his wife, Karin Schaeffer, sending his family on to Sardinia with his associate, Mary, and her son. And then the deluge. It takes Mac and Karin the rest of the book to unravel the evil perpetrated by the billionaire’s money

    This is a straightforward tale of mystery and misery. What mystery exists, however, is merely who, what and when, but no deep, penetrating unknowns. The novel drags on to a fairly obvious conclusion, with a lot of repetitious language and superfluous lovemaking. Not to be misogynistic about it, but I suspect the book may appeal more to women than to men.
