Description-
  • For two years the "Working Girl Killer" hunted in Manhattan, brutally slaughtering nine city prostitutes.

    And now the fiend has crossed the river.

    Former cop-turned-p.i. Karin Schaeffer receives the call meant for her detective husband Mac on a Sunday night: two females found on a Brooklyn street. The first is an eleven-year-old girl, the apparent victim of a hit-and-run. But it's the second body that truly chills the blood—a young corpse bearing the grisly, unmistakable signature of a serial slayer who has eluded the NYPD for years.

    But there's something frighteningly different about these latest atrocities—a kink that is leading Schaeffer's unofficial investigation down strange and twisting alleys where nothing is as it originally seems. And the haunted p.i., who once lost everything to a psychopath, is suddenly facing the darkness once again . . . when the horror strikes too close to home and those she loves are in danger of vanishing forever.

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."

  • Wendy Corsi Staub, NYT bestselling author

    "I can always count on Katia Lief for gripping, twist-filled psychological suspense."

  • Hartford Books Examiner

    "Vanishing Girls is powerful, provocative, and pulsating with verve."

  • New York Journal of Books

    "Author Katia Lief takes her readers on a whirlwind ride, overflowing with mystery layered upon mystery, ending in an unusual but gratifying finale. Readers will want to read more of this talented writer's work."

  • 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."
