Talk about a book for our times! Mike, our narrator, is one seriously messed-up guy pining over his lost Verity. But is he, or is it a game they are just playing? Lust and obsession: what a great combo. Probably the creepiest, most disturbing, novel I've read since the Gillian Flynn's out-of-this-world good Sharp Objects!
Our Kind of Cruelty by Araminta Hall ($26.00*, MCD/Farrar Straus and Giroux), recommended by McIntyre's Fine Books, Pittsboro, NC.
