From a master of suspense and author of the bestselling Beyond Fear, Blood Secret is a teasingly crafted, nail-biting thriller that's impossible to put down. Nothing ever happens in Haven Bay, which is why Rennie Carter - a woman who has been on the run for most of her life - stayed there longer than she should. However, that illusion of security is broken one night when Max Tully, the man she loves and the reason she stayed, vanishes without trace. Rennie, though, is the only person who believes Max is in danger. The police are looking in the wrong places, and Max's friends and his business partner keep hinting at another, darker side to him. But Rennie Carter understands about double lives - after all, that's not even her real name...And she has a secret too - a big, relentless and violent one that she's terrified has found her again a and the man she loves.
