A heart-stopping psychological suspense novel about a Texas prison official driven to commit the perfect crime, by the author of the international bestselling thriller Baby Doll.


Working on death row and raising her son as a single mom is tough. When Kristy Tucker meets and falls in love with handsome Lance Dobson, at last she can imagine a better future.

But after their wedding, her life becomes one of constant terror. And as Lance’s violence escalates, Kristy must decide how far she will go to save herself — and her son.

The Walls is a riveting thriller about domestic violence, murder, and one woman’s desperate gambit to protect her family.
