Author Catherine Lea


Wel​come to the official website of author, Catherine Lea, who also writes under the pen name, C.J. Lea. 


I'd like to introduce you to my latest thriller:

Syd Shaeffer used to be a lot of things: smart and confident, a stellar New York District Attorney, and fiancee to the love of her life, Frank Spinelli.

A viral eye infection changed all that. Now she's blind and runs a failing law practice out in the burbs.

But when Frank goes missing in New Zealand and the ransom note tells his mother not to call the police, Syd just may be the only one who can find him.

Is Syd just driven by honor? Or is she trying to prove that she's still good enough? And when the first dead body turns up, can a blind woman see what everyone else has overlooked?
Or will she be next on the killer’s list?

A gripping thriller that will have you guessing to the very last page.
