The Haves. The Have-Nots.
Kate O’Brien appears to be a Have-Not. Her whole life has been a series of setbacks she’s had to snake her way out of—some more sinister than others. But she’s determined to change that. She’s book-smart. She’s street-smart. Oh, and she’s also a masterful liar.

Welcome …and exhale.

Make yourself at home and feel free to poke around
