  • Susie Russo held on to her dark secrets from the past. They were locked away in the deep recesses of her mind where they were safe. That was until she started to receive vile messages on her mobile phone from a venomous caller.
    Will the truth be exposed? Susie was fearful that her loving husband Mario would find out. Every day she lived with her guilt, lies and deceit. In a warm and loving relationship with Mario Valderas, she wanted for nothing, but now the fear of her secrets being revealed threatened everything she held dear. Could she take that risk?

    Late one evening a tragedy changed her life in an instant, both emotionally and physically. Susie kept silent, revealing nothing to the authorities. Will she rise above it all and find the strength to go on, or will she discover another way to find her peace?

    Intrigue, love, mystery, drama, jealousy, corruption and murder - PAYBACK has it all. Will Susie Russo’s dark secrets finally be exposed? Will her past life ruin her future? Who knows the real truth?
