However, Alison Gaylin is no Evanovich, Please don't confuse the two. The styles of writing are completely different. Even then, the theories about what really happened seem far fetched. By the time you learn the killer's real motivation, it is even more disturbing.

Hello? I said, but when I peered inside, I found no one hiding there. Is anybody here? Like an answer, a black sedan pulled out of the garage and screeched to a halt beside me.

New York Rule Don't get involved. Samantha Leiffer already has a self-centered self-help guru for a mother, a cadre of off-kilter Greenwich Village pals, and an ex-boyfriend who cheated on her with women and men. She doesn't need more grief. Reminiscent of the bestsellers of Laura Lippman and Harlan Coben-with a dose of Big Little Lies or Stranger Things-an absorbing, addictive tale of psychological suspense from the author of the highly acclaimed and Edgar Award-nominated What Remains of Me and the USA Today bestselling and Shamus Award-winning Brenna Spector series, in which a seemingly open-and-shut police case.

Sam works as a ticket-taker at an off-Broadway theater. She is happy with her own little world until everything changes one evening. While walking home, Sam sees two people throwing an ice chest in the river. A few days later, she hears on the news that an ice chest containing the body of a child was found. Sam is dumbfounded. She doesn't know what to do. Then she notices she is being followed. Sam doesn't know what to do: figure out the crime herself or go to the cops. Either way, she will have to figure it out fast or she could be next.

Excellent book! I was captivated by Gaylin's writing style and found the plot to be interesting and fast-paced. I will definitely be checking out more of Gaylin's work.

Very clever plot and interesting characters. It never went in the direction you expected. It was a delightful read!

this was a gift

Read it in one day and was all sad that it will be a year 'til the next one!

Krull made me think of Vincent D'Onofrio on "Law & Order:CI".

I just love him! And the heroine is realistic and funny.

Buy it and read it!

If someone had told me a few months ago that there was such a book as chick-lit romantic suspense, I would have said they were crazy. Alas, little did I know that not only does such a book exits, it's a totally awesome new genre! You really don't want to miss HIDE YOUR EYES by Alison Gaylin, and you definitely don't want to overlook her brand of sassiness, sarcastic humor, and down-and-dirty romantic suspense.

Poor Samantha Leiffer-the girl just cannot get a break! She moved to New York to be with the love of her life, Nate, a man more breathtaking than a god and more charming than a snake. The only problem was, Nate really was a snake, one who boinked everyone within walking distance of his and Samantha's apartment. And by everyone, I mean everyone-seems old Nate wasn't very discriminating when it came to the male or female status of his conquests. So here's poor Sam, working two jobs-one as a teacher at the Sunny Side nursery school, the other in the box-office of an off-off-off-off-off Broadway theater named the Space-and on Valentine's Day, that day of love and passion, she just so happens to witness a man and woman drop an ice chest into the Hudson River. That alone might be suspicious, but after all, it's a low point in Sam's life, and she's suspicious by nature.

What follows is something that even her mother, Sydney Stark-Leiffer, self-help guru and mostly off-her-rocker publicity hound, wouldn't be able to come up with a quick answer to. There really was something suspicious in that hastily dumped ice chest-a body, to be exact, and one with it's eyes gouged out, to be even more exact. Suddenly, Sam's life is in more upheaval than her Space coworker who took a three-year vow of silence to save her voice for her upcoming one-woman show.

Now a mystery psychopath in mirrored sunglasses is following her around, she's getting heavy-breathing and intimidating phone calls in the middle of the night, and a one-man Hercules show by the name of John Krull is helping Sam in her find-the-bad-guy detective show.

HIDE YOUR EYES is, beyond and without a doubt, simply awesome. Told in first person, you'll nevertheless feel as if you're walking beside Sam as she comes to terms with everything that's going on in her life-the departure of slimy Nate, the entrance of yummy Krull, the schizophrenia of her mother, the eccentricities of her circle of friends, and not to mention her need to single-handedly bring justice to New York. Alison Gaylin has penned a true winner, and I can't wait for the sequel to this book, which is slated to hit the shelves in January of 2006.

Samantha Leiffer moved from California to Manhattan to be with her boyfriend who turned out to be cheating on her with men and women. She stays in New York and holds two jobs, one as a teacher at the Sunny Side Nursery School and the other at the Off-Broadway Space Theatre's box office. One day she takes a walk by the Hudson River and sees a man and a coatless woman toss an ice chest into the water. Sam has a real bad feeling about the scene.

Strange things begin happening to Sam. A word is printed in her book that she reads to her students. She finds a picture of her mother with her eyes pried out. A one word email arrives at her computer at the Space Theater. The police find the ice chest; inside is a three year old child with her eyes cut out. The killer escalates his attacks on Sam and more children die. Sexy Detective John Krull has her stay in his apartment and under his guard because it is clear that the killer wants her as his next victim..

The story starts out offbeat, funny and lighthearted as the heroine copes with the radical changes in her life and her runaway imagination. HIDE YOUR EYES gets scary very quickly as Samantha's imagination becomes real and the killer is stalking her and innocent children. The tension soars to unbearable levels and not even Sam's romantic affair with Detective Krull is enough to stop readers form wanting to know what the killer will do next. Allison Gaylin is a bright new star in the psychological suspense and thriller horizons.

Samantha witnesses two people throwing a perfectly good ice cooler off the pier. Normally, this wouldn't cause alarm, except that the man is wearing mirrored contact lenses that spook the crap out of her. Then she meets an evil man with those same lenses and thinks the worst. The storyline goes from one absurd scenario to an even sicker one.

At first, I thought this author would write like Janet Evanovich since it started out in first person and was filled with a collection of cooky characters. However, Alison Gaylin is no Evanovich, Please don't confuse the two. The styles of writing are completely different.

Hide Your Eyes starts out slow and even when you know what the plot is about, it takes awhile before you actually start getting into the storyline. Even then, the theories about what really happened seem far fetched. By the time you learn the killer's real motivation, it is even more disturbing.

Is it worth buying?

I'm a little up in the air about this one. For some people, I think they may really like it, but others I feel will not only be disappointed, but disturbed as well. It's not that it was a bad book and I've read plenty of books that were considerably sicker, it's just that the author had the tendency to go from one extreme to the next. On sale or library check out is my suggestion, but I'll let you be the judge. Sorry this wasn't more helpful.
