it was amazing

Katia, Below is the review I did for Suspense Magazine:

"You are Next" by Katia Lief:

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.
