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.”

“Stevens sets the stage for graphic sensory details and a fast-paced, tantalizing mystery that utilizes her passion and research in forensics and psychology.”

“Readers will relate to the San Francisco and Los Angeles settings, and Stevens’ allusions to “Cask of Amontillado” andFrankenstein craft a story immersed in theater, disguise and secrecy.”

“Memorable characters, macabre scenes and a dazzling portrayal of reality will leave readers anxious for book two in the Gabriel McRay series.”

      THE DARK BEFORE DAWN
      by Laurie Stevens
Laurie Stevens says, “I wanted to give you a quick update. I’ve been very busy promoting the book and series.  I do a lot of speaking engagements — many on following your dreams/becoming a writer etc.  Adults really enjoy those. There’s a YouTube video of a TV interview I did. If you want to see it, click the link on my website below and it will be under the “meet the author” tab. Oddly enough, my most captivated audience for the book itself have been high school students.  Go figure. I guess they are not scared of anything! “
“We’ve gotten two film rights options for the book, but have not committed… as of yet.”
“I do a lot of online articles and I’ve included one here:
“I figured you might be interested in this one because it’s about the 99 cent book phenomenom. It would be interesting to hear your opinions as readers.
“Also, I’m very excited to announce that the second book in the Gabriel McRay series, entitled DEEP INTO DUSK is coming out soon.  A couple of months from now.
“Lastly, I will be at the L.A. Times festival of books at USC this Sunday April 21st from 2 pm to 4 pm at the Sisters in Crime booth #367.  I’ll be signing away and giving out goodie bags. If any of you local Los Angelinos are planning a literary event day and you attend the festival, PLEASE COME BY AND SAY HI!”
“I hope 2013 is treating all of you well and don’t forget to keep in touch.”
