Will they succeed in bringing to justice this killer before Philippe becomes his next victim? Will they be able to deal with the truth behind the deadly secrets?
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have characters living in my head. It wasn’t until the age of 12 that I realized not everyone hears characters talking to them. That’s about the time I put pen to paper and created their stories. I finished my first and only short story within weeks. I kept on writing through high school, university and my first few jobs. To this day I still have a pen and paper handy.
I have completed 10 manuscripts. After 22 years of writing I got the call. The owner of LBF Books called to let me know she wanted to purchase DEADLY SECRETS. I can’t express what it feels like to finally see my publication dream come true.
I currently live in Ottawa Canada and I’m working on DEADLY DESIRES as sequel to DEADLY SECRETS and plotting more books. Visit my website www.leeannburke.com.
Lyle is living with Rochelle while he gets his life together, and he’s thrilled to hear about his sister’s new job offer. But within hours, triumph is followed by tragedy. Returning from a celebratory dinner with her boyfriend, she finds Lyle dead with a syringe in his lap, and Eve’s investigation confirms that this wasn’t just another OD. After all his work to get clean, Lyle’s been pumped full of poison—and a neighbor with a peephole reports seeing a scruffy, pink-haired girl fleeing the scene.
Now Eve and Roarke must venture into the gang territory where Lyle used to run, and the ugly underground world of tattoo parlors and strip joints where everyone has taken a wrong turn somewhere. They both believe in giving people a second chance. Maybe even a third or fourth. But as far as they’re concerned, whoever gave the order on Lyle Pickering’s murder has run out of chances...
