I need the two men sitting opposite to trust me. My family’s happiness is riding on my getting this job. I smile – there’s no link between having a friendly face and being trustworthy, but humans are programmed to think there is. Even us surgeons, who should know better.
They’ll know about my past from the newspapers – the court case, the threats, the lies that were told – but what’s important now are my children. This has to be the new start we so desperately need. An escape from my old job, my ex… and the scandal that nearly ruined me.
What I don’t know yet is that if I convince them to trust me, I’ll be putting my family in terrible danger. I’m trying to make things right, but this is when it starts to go very, very wrong…
What readers are saying about The Secret Within
‘Wow just wow! This book will stay with me for quite a while. Excellently written, fast paced and full of edge-of-the-seat drama. You know there are twists but you absolutely don’t see them coming and the ending will just blow you away.’ NetGalley reviewer, 5 stars
‘The story was fantastic!! Deliciously dark, twisted and dangerous. Filled with lies, deceit and jaw-droppingly shocking behaviour. This book had me gripped and the epilogue sent shivers down my spine!! Would definitely recommend!!’ Stardust Book Reviews, 5 stars
‘The Secret Within is a tense rollercoaster of a read… An addictive, chilling, twisty thriller of a read that keeps you guessing until the end!’ Goodreads reviewer, 5 stars
