The Dark Before Dawn is:
“Frighteningly great Indie title… Be sure to leave a light on!”
The Huffington Post

A very unique, nuanced thriller with multiple layers of intrigue… had me hooked from the first page.”
Writers Digest

Stevens sets the stage for graphic sensory details and a fast-paced, tantalizing mystery that utilizes her
passion for research in forensics and psychology… memorable characters, macabre scenes, and a dazzling portrayal of reality
will leave readers anxious for book two in the Gabriel McRay series.”
Kirkus Reviews
 
 
Speaking of Book 2,  Deep into Dusk  is available at
 
 
Here are review excerpts from Deep into Dusk: 
 
“This is a chilling psychological thriller, the second in the author’s series featuring McRay (though it’s perfectly readable as a stand-alone book). Stevens deftly intertwines McRay’s childhood trauma with the crimes taking place in the present, intensifying the emotional force of the story. The characters have depth and personality, and their internal conflicts are portrayed in a wrenchingly human fashion, both moving and believable. The mystery, meanwhile, is dark, disturbing, and intense enough to hold the reader’s interest until the end. The teaser at the end for the sequel promises a vigorous, dramatic continuation for the series.”
 
“Laurie Stevens’  Deep Into Dusk,  has all the ingredients of a hair-raising movie thriller on par with the movie  Fatal Attraction  as it sucks you into wild intrigue with a very unexpected ending…  This is one author that I am sure we will be hearing more from in the future.”
 
“Detective Gabriel McRay returns to investigate a case of strangled female victims in the second installment in Stevens’ thriller series. Her novel is an enticing murder mystery with an unorthodox protagonist. Stevens delights in playing with conventions set forth by past detective novels… Respects the old-school murder mystery while showcasing contemporary characters.”

Jeff Edwards Author- DOME CITY BLUES

DOME CITY BLUES

by Jeff Edwards

A Mysterious Galaxy Book Review

“Even alone, beaten up by life, and a tad pissed at the world, David Stalin is still one of the best detectives that the Los Angeles Urban Environmental Enclosure 12, 12-A and their surroundings have ever seen.  Hell, throw in the rest of the world if you wish.  There’s no one more tenacious than our hero.  Even after his wife was taken from him.  Even after four years of retirement.  Even against all odds.  The year is 2063 and he’s back on the job …  and his past is about to catch up with him.”

“Take the intelligence of a Neal Stephenson novel, add a heaping helping of Richard K. Morgan kick-ass, fold in a cup or two of real world technical knowledge and an eye in the future, and put the result in a noir dystophia bleak enough to make Philip K. Dick and William Gibson shed a few tears.  Bake at 2000 degrees.  You now have a small idea of what Jeff Edwards has in store for you in DOME CITY BLUES.”- PMH
