A page-turning and deeply compulsive psychological thriller about a school secretary and how dangerous it can be to make enemies at the school gates. For fans of THE RUMOUR by Lesley Kara and THE TEACHER by Katerina Diamond.

The teachers thought they knew her. They were wrong...

When single mum Ruth has a brief fling with Rob, she's mortified to discover that he lied to her. He lied to her, because he's married. Worse still, he's the husband of Janine, head of the PTA at the primary school where Ruth works as secretary, and when the truth of their fling is discovered, Ruth suddenly has a lot of enemies at the school gates.

Threatening texts begin to arrive, rumours abound and the staff room becomes hostile. But when it also starts to affect her son, a student at the school, Ruth realises you can do anything if you convince yourself it's for the sake of your child.

Even murder.

She's previously worked as a teacher, photographer and in the television industry, but writing has always been her passion. The Secretary is her first novel for Little, Brown.

I couldn't put it down - a gripping read from start to finish and kept me guessing until the end. A compulsive and complex tale of the toxic effects of revenge Such a gripping read . . . a real page-turner Mind blown! The end was a triumph, absolutely brilliant! Gripping and powerful! The tension in the novel was cranked up notch by notch until I was gasping as the story unravelled . . . A fantastic read!
