Can a secret be worse than a lie?
Every time Kate Duggan looks in a mirror she is confronted by her guilt; a long, red scar reminding her that she was ‘the one to walk away’ from the car accident. Not everyone was so lucky …
On the surface her fiancé Rob is supportive – but the reality is different. He’s controlling, manipulative and, if the phone call Kate overhears is anything to go by, he has a secret. But just how dangerous is that secret?
When Kate begins work at a firm of private investigators, she meets Ben Parker. His strong and silent persona is intriguing but it’s also a cover – because something devastating happened to Ben, something he can’t get over.
As Kate and Ben begin their first assignment, they become close. But, what they don’t realise is how close to home the investigation will bring them, or who will be hurt in the process …
What people are saying:
Lynda Stacey showed she could really crank up the tension and write a great story with her last book, House of Secrets. But this one…phew!

I love a good mystery with well developed characters. Kate is a great heroine – full of complexity. Ben is strong, funny, and sexy. There were lots of twists and turn in this story to keep the reader guessing.
If you like romantic suspense then you can’t go wrong with this book.

It’s got everything! Romance, suspense, dealing with the past, humour……you name it, it’s in there! …I love how this novel moves, you are literally swept along with it.
