"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.

The past catches up to everyone eventually, and the Compassionate Dismantlers are no exception. The completely unbelievable ending wraps this creepy story up nicely.

Genuinely scary, clever, and very well-written.

I have been plowing through McMahon's books. I like her writing, I like the darker tone.

I tried really hard to like this one, and it just didn't do it for me. The twists and turns are what keep me coming back, but there were too many improbable twists to keep it together for me.

It's a 2.5 star
