Description

While in college, Henry, Tess, Spencer, Winnie, and Suz banded together to form The Compassionate Dismantlers. Following their manifesto-"To understand the nature of a thing, it must be taken apart"-these curious, daring misfits spend the summer after graduation in a remote cabin in the Vermont woods committing acts of meaningful vandalism and plotting elaborate, sometimes dangerous pranks. But everything changes when one particularly twisted experiment ends in Suz's death and the others decide to cover it up. Nearly a decade later, Henry and Tess are married and living an hour's drive from the old cabin. Though they have tried to forget the group, the past isn't ready to let them go. One of the old members commits suicide, setting off a chain of eerie events that threaten to engulf Henry, Tess, and their precocious nine-year-old daughter Emma. Is there someone who knows their terrible secrets? Is it possible that Suz did not really die-or has she somehow found a way back? Full of white-knuckle tension with deeply human characters caught in circumstances beyond their control, Jennifer McMahon's gripping story promises to thrill readers with its pitch-perfect characters and spine-tingling plot.
