The Secret Historyrecounts the terrible price we pay for mistakes made on the dark journey to adulthood.


"It takes my breath away". --Ruth Rendell

"Enthralling ... image the plot of Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment crossed with the story of Euripides' Bacchae set against the backdrop of Bret Easton Ellis' The Rules of Attraction... forceful, cerebral and impeccably controlled... ferociously well-paced... remarkably powerful". --The New York Times
