Small town secrets...

Sex, lies, and violence. Murder mystery/Thriller. #Free to all July 1-2. Not for the faint of heart.

Deanna Cruz was a gorgeous young woman.  She could have any man she wanted, and several had let her.  She was tall, bronze-skinned, with raven hair and peridot green eyes.  A real looker, some of the attorneys around town had said.  That did not happen in their sleepy little county seat in North Texas.  They do not hire pretty girls - Too much temptation and too many prying eyes.  This one was the daughter of the most generous ruling Party political contributor in the county, and the number one employer of the constituents.  When she came knocking, they had no choice.  Though they were all certain that she would break hearts, they never considered hers, or the explosive  impact her life and demise would have on their quiet little brand of justice in this isolated and picturesque community.
