Five years on and ‘Poisonous Patty’ is about to leave jail after serving her term for aggravated child abuse. But who’s that waiting at the prison gate? Rose Gold no less, baby in arms, ready to let bygones be bygones. Or is she? As all crime fiction fans know, revenge is a dish best served cold… The book is titled Darling Rose Gold in the USA.
