When you hear her story, will you believe her?Rose Marlowe is a hard-working nurse, a loving wife, and a merciless killer. Or so she says. Despite her confession, it is hard to believe that this beautiful, kind woman could have killed her vulnerable patient in cold blood. Down-on-his luck author and ex-journalist, Theo Hazel, is convinced that there's more to what happened than Rose is telling, and so decides to visit her behind bars to write her story.

His first surprise comes when Rose reveals that the victim was not a stranger to her.

As time goes on, it seems that Rose is letting Theo see behind her perfect mask.

With each new visit, he learns terrible new things about her heart-breaking past.

With each new visit, he becomes more and more convinced that she can't be a killer.

But is he trying to free an innocent woman, or falling prey to a calculating murderer?A gripping and unputdownable thriller that will keep you guessing into the early hours of the morning.
