 Makedde Vanderwall is back – and trouble′s not far behind …

Eighteen months after her ordeal at the hands of the sadistic ′Stiletto Killer′, Makedde Vanderwall must confront her demons when she returns to Sydney for the trial. But just as the verdict is handed down, the unthinkable happens – the killer makes a daring escape, aided and abetted by a twisted accomplice whom no one expected.

Mak is terrified. She decides to leave the country, but the press dogs her every move, hindering her safe passage and unknowingly helping the Stiletto Killer, who′s busy rekindling an old fetish – her.

Sharper than a Manolo six-inch heel, sexier than a Versace fashion show, and riskier than all seven deadly sins, COVET will set your pulse racing.
