Lady Killer (Large Print / Paperback)
A young woman searches for her missing rival from high school and gets more than she bargained for
In recent years, Mary DiNunzio has become a big-time business-getter at Rosato & Associates, but the last person she expects to walk into her office one morning is super sexy Trish Gambone, her high school rival.
As it turns out, Trish's life has taken a horrifying turn. She's terrified of her boyfriend, who's an abusive drug dealer for the South Philly mob. There's only one problem Mary remembers the guy from high school, too. Unbeknownst to Trish, Mary had a major crush on him.
Then Trish vanishes, a dead body turns up in an alley, and Mary is plunged into a nightmare. She goes on a one-woman crusade to unmask the killer, and on the way finds new love in a very unexpected place.
