The Golden Girl

Dana Perry

Everyone knows somebody like Maura Walsh – a golden girl, loyal to her family and her boyfriend. The type you love to hate, except she’s so darn nice. How could anybody want someone like that dead?

When Maura Walsh’s body is discovered in a dark alley, in a neighborhood she had no business being in, nobody is more determined to find the truth than Jessie Tucker. After all, she knows what it’s like to be attacked and left for dead. The difference is, someone got to Jessie in time to save her.

All the evidence points to the victim being murdered by someone she knew, and nobody was closer to Maura than her family. Is Jessie imagining it, or does Maura’s father hardly seem to care that his only daughter is dead? It’s clear that the Walsh family – as picture perfect as can be on the outside – is hiding some dark secrets behind closed doors, including the hushed-up death of a child at the family lake house years before.

Just as Jessie is beginning to piece together what might have happened to Maura and why, another body is found. And this time, it’s much too close to home. Can Jessie find the truth about Maura’s killer before he finds her first?

This totally twisty and absolutely gripping read will keep you turning the pages late into the night. Perfect for fans of Lisa Regan, Gregg Olsen and Lisa Jackson.
