Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

'Dark, twisty, claustrophobic . . . a thrilling psychological debut' Jo Spain
_______________

The book club was her idea, of course. Alice's.

It was her way into our group. A chance to get close.

I knew from the day she arrived that she couldn't be trusted.

And I was right.

Because Alice didn't come to the village for peace and quiet.

She came for revenge.
