For fans of The Girl on the Train, The Walls is the most twisted thriller you will read this year.
What if you could get away with murder?
Single mom Kristy Tucker works as a press agent for the Texas Department of Corrections -- handling everything on death row from inmate interviews to chronicling the last moments during an execution. Her job exposes Kristy to the worst of humanity, and it's one that's beginning to take its toll.
So when Kristy meets Lance Dobson, her son's martial arts instructor, she believes she has finally found her happy ending. She's wrong.
Kristy soon discovers that Lance is a monster. Forced to endure his verbal and physical abuse, Kristy is serving her own life sentence...unless she's willing to take matters into her hands. Perfectly poised to exploit the criminal justice system she knows so well, Kristy sets out to get rid of Lance -- permanently.
The Walls explores domestic violence, the morality of murder, and how far one woman will go to protect her family.
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.
WOULD YOU KILL TO PROTECT YOUR FAMILY?

When she meets Lance Dobson, Kristy begins to imagine a different kind of future. But after their wedding, she finds herself serving her own life sentence---one of abuse and constant terror.
But Kristy is a survivor, and as Lance's violence escalates, the inmates she's worked with have planted an idea she simply can't shake.
Now she must decide whether she'll risk everything to protect her family.
Does she have what it takes to commit the perfect crime?
