Praise for Behind the Lie:
"Naymark kicks off with a bang."
"Devastating. Immersive. And somehow, still redemptive. In Emilya Naymark's deceptively charming neighborhood--a dark and ugly secret lurks behind every door. And when two women go missing, the clash between the duties of a private investigator and the responsibilities of a parent explode into a series of impossible decisions. A brilliant and tense mystery with heartbreaking characters--and a gasp-worthy solution. Do not miss this! Emilya Naymark is a star."
