The secrets of silk: a novel
First Strebor Books trade paperback edition.
Affairs, deceit, scheming, murder, and sex--it's all here in this spicy, suspenseful read that will have fans of bestselling author Allison Hobbs both fascinated and disturbed by one hot murderess. Fiery vixen Silk Moreaux will do anything to get what she wants. Lying, stealing, and even killing don't weigh on her conscience. But when a prophetess, Big Mama, warns her that she'll come to a tragic end if she doesn't change her wicked ways, Silk moves to a small town in Pennsylvania to reinvent herself. With a sweet, loving, childlike temperament, Silk endears herself to the community--especially the men, who slyly compete for her affection, bearing gifts and offering money for just a little bit of her time. She becomes especially close with grieving widower Raymond Dixon, who expects a hefty insurance payout. When Raymond receives his windfall, Silk rushes him to the altar. But when the money begins to dwindle, she devises a scheme--involving a handsome hustler, Tate Simmons--to ensure that she maintains the comfortable lifestyle she's become accustomed to. Together, Silk and Tate plot a callous murder that could be their biggest payday ever. Can Silk's greed ever be satisfied or will the karmic scale finally tip, resulting in her prophesied destruction?
