With grit and determination, she is forced to confront her own misdeeds while coming face-to-face with her husband’s. Inside V is a deep look at trust, marriage, and the secrets we carry. An unputdownable novel that builds to an unforgettable standoff. This is one you don’t want to miss.

What People are Saying About This
"One of those rare and provocative books that is so well written you'll be telling everyone you know to read it. Inside V contains a raw yet beautiful power and fearless honesty that will haunt you long after you've turned the last page. Priamos has given us a fast paced thriller that explores a frightening and infrequently talked about truth that, under the surface, the most intimate things between a man and woman are never quite as they seem."
Rob Roberge, author of Liar: A Memoir and More Than They Could Chew
"Paula Priamos has written a stunner of a novel. Inside V is a fascinating look into the dark corners of a marriage, slowly and intimately revealed in a page-turning mystery. V, herself, is a heroine readers will not soon forget. A Greek bad-ass with demons of her own. Inside V is a powerful psychological story of the explosive combination of violence and love. And through it all, Priamos writes a glaring and bright Los Angeles in all its beautiful/ugly glory, a vivid valentine to a city that may be the beginning and end of a marriage shrouded in sex and betrayal."
Dana Johnson, author of In the Not Quite Dark and Elsewhere, California
"Turn off your phone, curl up on your couch and cancel all appointments. I couldn't put Paula Priamos' new novel, Inside V, down. Gritty, dark and well written, Inside V is an intimate portrayal of lust, love and the ever present possibility of betrayal. Enjoy the ride!"
