"With surgical precision, Australian author James draws us into the close-knit bosom of the teenage girls' developing friendship and with equal skill, fillets it to the bone."
"This unflinching exploration of psychological manipulation and the tragedies it creates introduces a promising new talent in literary suspense." (starred review)
From the Publisher
Annotation Australian author Rebecca James makes a remarkable debut with BEAUTIFUL MALICE, a novel that blends with expertise and creativity the story of two teenager girls coming into their own with a bone-chilling tale of psychological suspense. On the surface, Katherine Patterson and Alice Parrie couldn't be more different, which makes their fast and furious friendship all the more exciting. Katherine, who prefers to lurk in obscurity, is running from something. The out-going and popular Alice thrives on attention and seeks thrills. But then a commonality begins to emerge: both girls harbor dark--really dark--secrets. James beautifully explores the emotional rollercoaster ride of the teenage years amidst a story whose themes of manipulation, love, death, and guilt hold traction for every phase of life.
