The "New York Times"-bestselling author of "Island of Lost Girls" presents a chilling work in which the secrets of the past come back to haunt a group of friends in terrifying ways.
From the Publisher:
A decade after covering up a friend's death during an elaborate prank in the Vermont woods, Henry and Tess are tormented by the painful secret, the suicide of another member of their group, and a chain of eerie events that threatens their life with their precocious young daughter. 75,000 first printing.
Annotation:
Four college friends form a secret group--"the compassionate dismantlers"--dedicated to understanding the nature of truth through acts of destruction. Their pranks and experiments go too far when one of them dies and the survivors cover up their crime. Now, a decade later, two of the members, Henry and Tess, are married, have a precocious nine-year-old daughter, and are desperate to leave their past behind them. But when one of their old victims commits suicide, and "dismantler" postcards begin to appear in the mail, it feels almost as if their dead friend has risen to play a final deadly trick. A fiendish and addictive psychological thriller in the spirit of THE SECRET HISTORY, Jennifer McMahon's DISMANTLED appeals to the reader's deepest intellectual and visceral levels.

Praise

"McMahon's deftly creepy prose creates a world of chaos and abuse; the book brims with unexpected and often startling plot twists, taking the reader on a strange journey that never disappoints." 04/15/2009

"A prank gone wrong drives this outstanding novel from bestseller McMahon....[She] allows the inexorable sense of dread to build incrementally." (starred review) 04/27/2009

"Certain novels of psychological suspense--some call them ghost stories--grab us by making us read between the lines. That's the most enjoyable way to approach Jennifer McMahon's DISMANTLED....Seeing and feeling a child's unhappiness is worse than running into some old ghosts." - Marilyn Stasio 07/05/2009
