When she arrives in London, Jess has disappeared and her live in lover Tyler has no idea where she has gone. Jess wrote an article for Smile Magazine about three women who were victims of stalkers. On the day the magazine hit the stands, the three women were murdered and the police have evidence that it was by the same person. Lily decides to look into the matter hoping to find the killer and Jessica who has vanished without a trace.

IN YOUR FACE is a complex, entertaining who done it with a supportive plot that leads the readers into false trails. Every time the spunky heroine hits a dead end, she looks for another path to follow and gradually accumulates enough evidence to finally figure out what is going on. This action packed, fast paced and very entertaining amateur sleuth tales has more twist and turns than the most intricate maze.
