First Look: DEAD SECRET by Ava McCarthy

Ava McCarthy is best known for her series of thrillers featuring Harry Martinez, but her latest, the forthcoming DEAD SECRET (Harper), is a standalone. To wit:
From the author of the Harry Martinez thrillers comes a gripping psychological suspense novel.
  Two quick shots. One for him. One for you.
  After the death of her three-year-old daughter, Jodie has nothing left to live for – or almost nothing.
  She has one task to fulfil before she takes her own life. And that’s to kill the man she holds responsible for her daughter’s death – her seemingly perfect husband, Ethan.
  But Ethan is hiding more than just his true nature. And as more horrifying secrets from his past emerge, Jodie’s strength will be pushed to the limit …
  DEAD SECRET will be published on January 14th. For more, clickety-click here
