Roxy is a tale of secrets and lies, sex and death. Sent to Greece on a mission of mercy to meet her estranged grandfather, Roxy uncovers the truth about her family—and must unravel the longtime consequences of a tragic love story. At the same time she has a secret of her own, and must deal with her strong feelings for the far-too-good-looking Giorgio. This is a riveting mystery with a tough yet vulnerable narrator.
