Beside Us is a Dan Brown-esque mystery for readers who like a good, juicy conspiracy theory. There are plenty of twists and turns in the complex plot, and supernatural elements that feel logical and integral to the story. I also appreciate the very real stakes for the main characters, and the difficult choices they’re forced to make.  ~ Amanda Waters, author of With You

Beside Us – First Review

Buckle up and put on your tinfoil hat for this journey, it’s a masterfully-written five-star adventure full of fun, fear, and unexpected twists. 

This mesmerizing novel spins down wheels within wheels, wheels that turn out to be crop circles with the bloodless bodies of children at their centers. Follow this maze of conspiracies into magical portals to adventure and wonder. 

It begins when Canadian detective Simon Elliott, out for a bike ride, witnesses a mysterious kidnapping of three children, made all the more puzzling when their parents were not taken.  When Simon reluctantly agrees to investigate for the parents, his quest takes him to England, and leads to a series of harrowing events. He hooks up with new companions, and they are pursued by two competing, but equally frightening, groups. Unsure of what is real, or who to trust, Simon refuses to give up the search. It takes him and his friends into a hidden world, with portals into other places and times, a blood-tinged elixir promising eternal life, and war with those less altruistically motivated. Buckle up and put on your tinfoil hat for this journey, it’s a masterfully-written five-star adventure full of fun, fear, and unexpected twists.  Doves in a Tempest, Bill Schweitzer

Sneak peak into my latest book Beside Us. Let me know what you think.

Simon Elliot, a police officer, witnesses the kidnapping of three siblings from their unconscious parents.

With no memory of how their children were taken, and their oldest son found dead in a crop circle in England, the family begs Simon to go abroad and continue his investigation.

In England, Simon believes he is being watched. When acquaintances die while helping with his investigation, he knows he has the attention of the kidnappers. While Simon’s investigation expands, mysterious men dressed in black hoodies intervene, trying to hide their ancient secrets.

As more children’s bodies appear in crop circles, Simon learns other missing children are alive and communicating with their parents, not in his dimension however, but through a veil, as if looking through a dirty window. The visits give the parents peace, and Simon the motivation to find out why those families are targeted, and how the remaining children can communicate with their parents. 

Finally, confronting one hooded man, Simon learns where the missing children are held. He rushes to their location, intending to rescue the children and reveal the hooded group’s many secrets. Will his police skills be enough to safely return the children to their families and expose the kidnappers?

Reviews for Lies Lead to Death

“Briggs brings the action and doubles the intrigue as David and The Family gear up again, not long after their patriarch’s assassination. Russians, The CIA, DIA, and devious international players abound during the revenge tour. Briggs’ protagonist David has the skill set to walk the line between good and evil, so well it keeps your eyes glued and the pages turning.” – Ken Harris, retired FBI and the author of the From the Case Files of Steve Rockfish series.

Lies Lead to Death offers a fascinating glimpse into the raw world of paid killers. From Caracas to Northern Ireland to Ontario, the book follows a family of assassins as they fight to protect their own. Filled with adrenaline, intrigue, and adventure, the punches don’t stop coming until the final page. Fans of author Stephen Briggs’s first book in the Family of Killers series, Memoirs of an Assassin, will not be disappointed. Brooke French, Inhuman Acts
