“Old Hollywood glamour comes vividly to life in historian, novelist, and film blogger Lieberman’s series debut, highlighting the effects of the 1950s Red Scare on the movie industry and the tragedies that happened off the silver screen. Aficionados of Alfred Hitchcock and Hollywood-themed mysteries will find this historical noir right up their alley.”

Library Journal

All the Wrong Places weaves in historical events and controversial politics with remarkable subtlety. Like recent Philip Marlowe tribute The Black-Eyed Blonde, this goes way beyond mere period pastiche. The Cara Walden setup has a lot of promise, and indeed, Lieberman is halfway through a sequel. . . Settle in with some popcorn and a stack of DVDs: I predict plenty of nostalgic viewing–and reading–ahead.”

“Yes, there is a death, and a mystery, and danger. But there is so much more to enjoy in All the Wrong Places. Open the novel and step into the time machine that Lisa Lieberman has created for you. Prepare for a magical ride back to the Hollywood of the 1940s and international film community of the 1950s. The coronation of Queen Elizabeth in 1953? Check. The marriage of Grace Kelly to Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956? Check. Enjoy.”

-Michael Kahn, award-winning author of the Rachel Gold mystery series
