Synopsis

You are Next by Katia Lief

Detective Karin Schaeffer was a happily married mother in New York when her life was shattered by a serial killer. The cops call Martin Price JPP - Just Plain Psycho - because of the brutality of his attacks. To the press and the public, however, he is known as The Domino Killer because he systematically murders whole families, leaving a trail of dominoes as numerical clues to the next victim. After Price murdered Karin's husband and daughter, she attempted suicide. Now he has escaped prison and is on his way to find her...And Karin wants to die. When Price finally strikes, she almost lets him take her life but comes to her senses when she realises he won't stop with her - he will go on to hunt other members of her family. She fights back, and barely escapes with her life. With the help of her former partner and close friend, Mac, she struggles to overcome despair and save her remaining loved ones. But no sooner is Price locked away than they are confronted with the revelation that he does not work alone. Then Karin's young niece disappears...

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lesley Hart

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.
