All These Perfect Strangers
A NoveleBook - 2016
In this intimate debut thriller in the vein of Donna Tartt's The Secret History, an award-winning mystery writer delves into the mind of a young woman who's closer to murder than she'd like to admit. "This is about three deaths. Actually more, if you go back far enough. I say deaths but perhaps all of them were murders. It's a grey area. Murder, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder." Within six months of her arrival at a university campus, three of Penelope Sheppard's new friends are dead. And only Pen knows why. This isn't Pen's first encounter with violence, and she's an expert at keeping secrets--especially ones as dark and dangerous as her own. Reputations have a way of haunting you--they're easy to make, hard to shake. After Pen leaves her isolated hometown to escape the judgmental stares of her neighbors and carve out a new identity for herself, she's free from the stigma of her past mistakes. At school, Pen is anonymous, surrounded by an eclectic collection of perfect strangers. But when someone begins to uncover the deadly secrets she thought she'd left behind, how far will Pen go to protect her new life? Six months later, Pen is back home, the victim of a violent trauma and a pariah once again. Now, reluctantly, she must recount her story from start to finish: to her shrink, to the police, even to herself. Because until she tells the whole truth, there will be no escaping the past.
