Praise for Behind the Lie:

“Naymark hits the rhythms of small-town life perfectly and maintains tension by alternating perspectives. Lisa Unger fans will want to take a look.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Naymark kicks off with a bang.”

“This is a suspenseful and layered novel about lives in suburbia that possess some dark secrets. The level of the prose makes this a novel that is memorable. I highly recommend it.”
—Nancy Bilyeau, bestselling author of The Blue

“How well do you know your friends, or your family, for that matter? How far will you go to hide secrets? Or betray the ones you love? Emilya Naymark’s second installment featuring Ex-NYPD Detective Laney Bird starts with a bang (or a crash, rather) and never lets go… Naymark’s flawless writing paints vivid portraits of strong, flawed women fighting for what they believe in and hold dear, no matter the consequences.”
—Marco Carocari, award winning author of Blackout

“Behind the Lie
delivers as a thriller on multiple levels. A great read that will make you want to keep the lights on – and wonder what secrets your own sweet neighbors are hiding.”
—Tracee de Hahn, author of A Well-Timed Murder

“Combining action with emotional upheaval, Naymark gives us a crime novel for our times. Tense enough to take our mind off the challenges of 2022, but human enough for us to feel empathy for Laney and those closest to her. A touch of romance, or at least the potential for it, rounds out this dynamic page-turner.
Readers who love a book they can’t put down will not be disappointed.”
—Elena Taylor, author of All We Buried

“Emilya Naymark’s BEHIND THE LIE is a page-turner. Be prepared to settle in and enjoy the ride! For those looking for a satisfying read that will keep you engaged from start to finish, I can definitely suggest BEHIND THE LIE by Emilya Naymark.”
—Cyrus Webb, author and radio host of Conversations Radio Network

“Page Turner Thriller With Great Character Development. Mesmerizing, thrilling and beautifully written. Sometimes thrillers sacrifice the sentence level writing for a good story but Naymark delivers the whole package. Haunting imagery, a compelling tale full of tension, and nuanced characters. I can’t wait to see what she writes next.”
—Jordan Rosenfeld, author of How to Write a Page Turner and Women in Red

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.
—Hank Phillippi Ryan USA Today Bestselling author of Her Perfect Life

—Russell Rowland, critically acclaimed author of Cold Country
“A page-turning thriller . . . Impossible to put down, Emilya Naymark’s debut will leave readers hungry for more.”

Hide in Place grabs you from page one.”
