And she knows she must take help wherever she can find it if she wants to stay alive… Written with Laura Griffin’s signature “gritty, imaginative, sexy” (Cindy Gerard, New York Times bestselling author) style, Her Deadly Secret is an electrifying and scintillating novel that packs a powerful punch.
