From New York Times bestselling author Debra Burroughs comes a suspenseful murder mystery with a delicious twist of romance. Sassy and headstrong Emily Parker's world was torn apart when her dashing private-eye husband was brutally killed. In time, as she returned to normal life, she began to unravel clues that maybe he wasn't who he claimed to be.
With the help of her close circle of friends and the sexy new police detective in town, Emily eventually took over her late husband's business and searches for answers to his murder. In the meantime, when disturbing coincidences keep popping up, she suspects there may be a sex slave ring operating in her town. Emily is determined to find out the truth and rescue the girls, even if it means putting her own life in danger.
The Chain of Lies is Book 3 in the Paradise Valley Mystery series, although it can be read as a stand-alone book. Sensual and gripping with murder, romance, mystery, and intrigue, think of The Chain of Lies as "Sex and the City" meets "Women's Murder Club".
