      It was the truth that seemed to catch me out Lies, I managed with fluency The Secretary is about a woman named Christine Butcher who was hired to work as a personal assistant for Mina Appleton the head of an ethical supermarket chain.The plot is told from Christine s perspective, through which we get to see the relationship sinisterly develop between her and Mina It becomes obvious that our protagonist isn t in safe territory, that she only fell victim to her boss manipulative conduct.T [...]
