Ms. Lief is a terrific suspense writer. I was on the edge of my seat and literally could not stop reading it until I finished. Well done! I cannot to read Next Time You See Me. If you want a great story + mystery + fantastic characters = You Are Next. Enjoy!

I don't care for this book at all. It is depressing and so is everyone in it. I will give the author another chance but this one is dragging on and on...I'm having a hard time finishing it.

When former police detective Karin Schaffer's family is brutally murdered, she comes apart at the seams. She is an empty shell in every sense of the word and feels she'd be better off dead. Both her husband and daughter were murdered by JPP (Just Plan Psycho) or as he was also known, "The Domino Killer" because he would leave dominos at the crime scene as a clue about who his next victim will be. Mild-mannered Martin Price-if that's his real name-does his best to torture Karin and keep her chasing him while trying to figure out what he'll do next in order to catch him. It's not long before they get their man. With JPP in prison, the question now becomes, who took her niece Suzanna and is she still alive-unlike none of his other victims? With dominos left behind as a clue, it's a race against time to find out if they have a copy cat killer or if JPP has a partner. What do you think? Lief pens a diabolically brilliant story and takes us on an amazing, wild ride of, I can't wait to see what happens next, all the while keeping uppermost in our minds what's driving Karin. Her family, along with her very caring psychiatrist Joyce somehow keeps her going, even in her darkest moments. With her old partner Mac, Karin will not rest until she finds Suzanna and untangles the web of lies and murder to find out what's really going on with all the players in this fantastic mystery.

Great read from beginning to end. Couldn't put it down!

I found the main character, Karin, and the plot to be extremely tiresome. I got bored reading all the long internal explorations of her psyche and found her so tedious that I actually had no sympathy for her despite her horrific experiences and loss. The book is not that long, and yet I still gave up after about two thirds into it and skipped to the end. This is a series that I will definitely be terminating with the first entry.

I had great expections for this book. It seems that this author had way too much drama, murder, and kidnappings going on in the amount of pages in this story. There was minimal character visualization, and no background as to who they really were. Therefore, I could not make a connection to any of them. Karin seemed to be the only main character and you only get to know her in her grief. This story also lacked credibility, that a dangerous murderer/pedofile made his escape, not once but twice, overpowering two police officers while shackled and handcuffed. And the murderer's attempt to send some type of messege using dominos representing numbers, to me seemed almost childish. At the end, there was some ray of hope and happiness, for the grief stricken Karin. I think this author had all the elements to produce a riverting and compeling story but some how it missed it's mark. I have given my review and if you decide to read this book you may have a different version.

Very depressing book. Too much time is spent retelling in detail her sorrow and not enough on the rest of the plot.

Main character so depressing and self absorbed. Have liked other of Lief books. Hated this one. Not worth the time to read.

This book kept my attention from beginning to end. I was looking for a mild suspense & thrill book that was an easy read, and I found one! I already started the next book in this series, "Next Time You See Me." I'm already looking forward to the adventure I'm about to ensue!

This author is new to me and I completely loved this book. It is well written and a page turner. While I could not wait to see what was going to happen next, I was sad when I read the last line....story over. The characters were well developed, the dialogue was good, the story line very interesting. I will read more of her works, she is a very talented writer.
