"An eerie and gripping tale of suspense....A triumph."
--Boston Globe

The author of the New York Times bestseller Island of Lost Girls, Jennifer McMahon returns with Dismantled--a stunning and chilling thriller that further burnishes her reputation as, "One of the brightest new stars of literary suspense" (Los Angeles Times online). Stewart O'Nan, author of Songs for the Missing, calls Dismantled, "A fun, twisty thriller. Expect comparisons to The Secret History." Readers of Laura Lippman, Tana French, and Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones will not be able to shake this breathtaking tale of the dark consequences of a group of college friends' belief that all things--and people--must be taken apart to be truly understood.

Back cover copy

When Henry, Tess, Winnie, and Suz form the Compassionate Dismantlers in college, the first rule of their manifesto is, "To understand the nature of a thing, it must be taken apart." But their penchant for acts of meaningful vandalism and elaborate, often dangerous pranks results in Suz's death in the woods of Vermont--a tragedy the surviving Dismantlers decide to cover up.

Nearly a decade later, Henry and Tess are desperate to forget, but their guilt isn't ready to let them go. When a mysterious Dismantler-style postcard drives a past prank victim to suicide, it sets off a chain of terrifying events that threatens to tear apart their world and engulf their inquisitive nine-year-old daughter, Emma. Is there someone who wants to reveal their secrets? Or is it possible Suz has found a way to enact revenge?

Full of white-knuckle tension with deeply human characters caught in circumstances beyond their control, Jennifer McMahon's enthralling story proves that she is a master at weaving the fear of the supernatural with the stark realities of life.
