LABYRINTH's SECRET
 

Murder isn't always what it seems.

 

When the N.Y.P.D. deduce Elise Morgan’s sister as just another casualty of the drug war; Elise leaves Seattle and flies to New York to do a little P.I. work of her own. Armed with two years of law school, an assumed name, make-over, a slew of puzzling emails and the suspicious boyfriend’s name, she slips into her late sister’s life. Secretary by day, waitress in a quaint little Celtic pub by night, Elise’s perseverance pays off as clues and life-altering secrets begin to fall into her path. Though it’s a dark, deadly trail she’s chosen to follow and soon discovers she may be in over her head. Especially when the extent of involvement with the Irish Mafia is unearthed, and worse, she’s become entangled with the duel-faced Scot in the heart of it all…a dangerously handsome songster appropriately named, Labyrinth. Elise learns too late that things aren’t always what they seem. On the run from a killer, she only wishes she would have paid heed to those three little words of warning via her late sister’s final correspondence. …Trust no one.
