Description

"I love a strong, smart heroine, and defense attorney Brynn Holloran is exactly that. Desperate Girls is a nail-biting read from the very first page to the final, shocking twist. I could not put this book down." --Melinda Leigh, Wall Street Journal bestselling author New York Times bestselling author Laura Griffin's Desperate Girls is a tightly wound, fast-paced romantic thriller that follows a desperate woman on the run as she hides from a killer's symbolic revenge spree.

Defense attorney Brynn Holloran is right at home among cops, criminals, and tough-as-nails prosecutors. With her sharp wit and pointed words, she has a tendency to intimidate, and she likes it that way. She's a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom, but in her personal life, she's a mess.

When a vicious murderer she once helped prosecute resurfaces and starts a killing spree to wipeout those who put him behind bars, one thing becomes clear: Brynn needs to run for her life.

When the police come up empty-handed, Brynn turns to a private security firm for protection. But when she defies advice and gets involved in the investigation, even the former Secret Service agent assigned to protect her may not be able to keep her safe. With every new clue she discovers, Brynn is pulled back into the vortex of a disturbing case from her past.

As the clock ticks down on a manhunt, Brynn's desperate search for the truth unearths long-buried secrets and reignites a killer's fury.

Review quote

"Intensely suspenseful ... Griffin pulls out all the stops in a phenomenal twist ending that will leave the readers stunned."--Publishers Weekly, starred and boxed review "It takes great mastery to combine the terror of a scary killer with a fun, sexy romance. Griffin handles the balance perfectly in Desperate Girls. A nail-biting page turner..."--New York Times bestselling author J.T. Ellison "A heart-pounding novel filled with twists and turns that kept me reading into the early hours of the morning. Desperate Girls is another winner from Laura Griffin!"--Chanel Cleeton, author of Next Year in Havana "I love a strong, smart heroine, and defense attorney Brynn Holloran is exactly that. Desperate Girls is a nail-biting read from the very first page to the final, shocking twist. I could not put this book down." --Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh "In Desperate Girls, Laura Griffin has crafted a thrilling page-turner that expertly balances the tension of a manhunt for an escaped convict on a revenge quest with the sizzling attraction between a sharp, ambitious attorney and her new bodyguard. Each development will leave you breathless ... right up to the twist you won't see coming!"--Kathleen Barber, author of ARE YOU SLEEPING "Desperate Girls by Laura Griffin is a keeper; I know because I carried it everywhere with me until I'd finished it. It has chills, thrills, action, and romance. The characterization rings true, and the supporting characters are as individual as the main protagonists. I liked it so much I'm buying her backlist."--New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard
