Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times bestselling author of Hush and the Bailey Weggins mystery series comes a thriller set in a college town where a student’s death sends one woman on a search for the truth and into the clutches of a frightening secret society.

Phoebe Hall’s Manhattan life has suddenly begun to unravel. Right after her long-term boyfriend breaks off their relationship, she’s falsely accused of plagiarizing her latest bestselling celebrity biography. Looking for a quiet place to put her life back together, Phoebe jumps at the offer to teach in a sleepy Pennsylvania town at a small private college run by her former boarding school roommate and close friend, Glenda Johns.

But behind the campus’s quiet cafÉs and leafy maple trees lie evil happenings. The body of a female student washes up on the banks of a nearby river, and disturbing revelations begin to surface: accusations from coeds about abuses wrought by a secret society of girls on campus known as The Sixes....

To help Glenda, Phoebe embarks on a search for clues - a quest that soon raises painful memories of her own boarding school days years ago.

As the investigation heats up, Phoebe unexpectedly finds herself falling for the school’s handsome psychology professor, Duncan Shaw. But when nasty pranks turn into deadly threats, Phoebe realizes she’s in the middle of a real-life nightmare, not knowing whom she can trust and if she will even survive.

Plunging deeper into danger with every step, Phoebe knows she’s close to unmasking a killer. But with truth comes a terrifying revelation: your darkest secrets can still be uncovered... and starting over may be a crime punishable by death.

    "Very strange...."

    I have the feeling that this must have been a book Kate White wrote a long time ago, or else she had "help" on this one -- which didn't help. I don't see how, after writing the brilliant, tense and supremely involving Bailey Wiggins series she could have done anything as amateurish as this. The plot is overly convoluted, the characters way too predictable, and the dialogue varies from stilted to funny -- for example, time and time again the characters talk among themselves, "Is it possible we have a serial killer loose"? Like DUH. Y'think? But the preoccupation with whether or not it's an actual "serial killer" -- as compared to who might be offing people, one after another -- is weird. But then it's made even stranger by the little girl voice of the narrator. When she articulates "serial killer" over and over, you get the feeling she's really saying "cereal killer" -- I found myself laughing at her, when we reached the fourth or fifth conversation in which the possibility of such a thing is discussed.

    When the book was over, I found myself wondering if it would have been less offensive if there had been a been a more mature and confident voice as narrator. Jennifer Cohn sounds like a little girl -- way too sweet and simple to be the lion of the publishing industry she's supposed to be. Tell me she's a first grade teacher, and I'll believe that as much more likely. Maybe with a more sophisticated voice reading this book it would have taken on greater portent.

    In any event, if you loved Kate White and Bailey Wiggins, save your credit. This one doesn't compare favorably at all.

    "it sounded good on the description..."

    A bit of a silly premise. I've really tried to keep listening, but so far I only wish I could get my credit back.

    "Entertaining & suspenseful."

    Jennifer Cohn does an excellent job narrating this story. Kate White, the author, does an great job in describing everyone's character, feeling and emotions.

    "Alright Kate!!!"

    This is a great book! Not surprising because Ms. White always entertains terrifically. Gotta tell you though, I am missing our Bailey. Loved how you referenced her in The Sixes! Maybe another Bailey in the future?
    I would recommend Kate White's books to anyone who loves a terrific mystery! I also must commend Ms. Jennifer Cohn for her terrific narration. Thank you so much ladies!
