    Samantha Leiffer has already had enough peril and excitement for a lifetime. Hunted by a vicious killer (in Hide Your Eyes), she emerges in this book with a sexy cop boyfriend, a new apartment and a good chance at happiness. But then 9/11 happens, and something's going on with her boyfriend that she doesn't want to look too closely at. Then there's the guy who's stalking her, leaving her carefully folded messages telling her that someone is watching her.Gaylin has a light, breezy style that would enhance any chick lit novel, but here she uses it to heighten the rising sense of menace. Her protagonist is a basically happy prekindergarten teacher, who does her best to cling to her sense of optimism despite the very bad things going on around her. This book felt to me like what Elizabeth Peters would be writing, were she a young, contemporary author just starting her career.

    In post-9-11 Manhattan, Samantha Leiffer is still trying to get a grip on her life. Her current live-in boyfriend, NYPD detective John Krull, isn't really deeply troubled, he's just "quiet". Her ex isn't really stalking her, he claims that he's just trying to stay friendly. And, the nerdy stranger who gives Sam a note warning her of danger unless she calls him, is probably just hitting on her. Until, that is, one by one, people around her start dying. Soon, she's realizes that she's not imagining things and the murderer may be closer than she thinks.Sequel to Hide Your Eyes.A great mystery-suspense with a feisty heroine.Highly recommend. Went back to read this earlier book because I enjoyed Trashed so much.

    This is Gaylin's second novel, the sequel to Hide Your Eyes. Both of these are fun reads with such intriguing twists that I found it easy to overlook the less-polished flaws. Unfortunately, these two novels are the only Samantha Leiffer mysteries. Gaylin's subsequent novels went into a different direction with more focus on the murder-mystery aspect. I am a huge fan of Gaylin's current work - but I'd love to see her revisit this lighter genre as well.

    An easy enough read, but again, there is just something missing from this author's books. I can't quite put my finger on it. I can say though, that the main character sucks. I mean, is she going to be the victim in every novel??? She's so..so..WIMPY! I just can't muster up any sympathy at all for her. I don't care for any of the characters, except maybe for Yale. Maybe he needs his own novel.

    I liked this book but I thought it could have been a little edgier.If I had realised that Hide Your Eyes was first in the series I would have read that first..I loved the characters though and although I figured out who the killer was quite early I thought the ending was very good.

    not really surprised at the ending, somehow knew who is the killer when he told Sam the possible password of the locker. Story was written fast-paced, with a right length. if the book was thicker, i think it would be less exciting.

    Not my favorite book of Gaylin's, but I enjoyed it. It started off a bit slow, and then got more interesting as the book went on..made me wonder about the killer's motive. I thought the ending was fast-paced and exciting.

    This is not a good book. But don’t let that stop you from reading Alison Gaylin. I read And She Was and Into the Dark first and I loved them. This one has the feel of a first or very early attempt and just doesn’t quite make it. Check out her later stuff.

    I don't know what Samantha's deal is - neurotic, paranoid, lacking self-respect, whatever - but man was she irritating. And even the gay best friend couldn't put any life into this book. BORING! and predictable.

    Chick lit, of course, but surprisingly good. Even good enough to make you want to hunt down the rest of her books.

    No Alison....YOU kill ME. Loved the characters she created in this series, wish there had been more! I guess I'll just have to read the Simone Glass series next... :)
