The mysterious lovers the three teenage girls spied on were engaged in a deadly sexual game no one else was supposed to know about.
Fifteen years later....the friends are confronted with their past with lots of twists and turns would will really enjoy. Good read, as all of Spindler's books. I think you would enjoy this unsual story.
Spindler forgets nothing in her plotlines: a peek into each person's character, a touch of romantic involvement, hints about what is to come--it keeps a person engrossed in the details! This story, about three young girls who have formed a binding friendship, moves from recounting a very special summer in their past to a present where each young woman has matured and become an individual. Oh, you'll know "who done it" in plenty of time, because it's the race to the ending that keeps the pages turning!!
Andie, Raven and Julie are three young women who are more than best friends - they consider each other to be family. When the girls look in the window of an abandoned house, they see two people who they refer to as Mr. and Mrs. X engaged in a very risque and potentially dangerous adult game. The curious girls return another night and discover that Mrs. X has been killed. The aftermath of the discovery threatens to tear the girls apart.
The trio reunites again in adulthood when Julie's marriage breaks up so she heads back to the nest. Then strange things start happening: Andie receives a newspaper clipping about Mrs. X's murder, Julie has a sadistic new secret lover, and Raven suspects that her new client is using business as an excuse to insert himself into her life. When another woman is found dead, the local sheriff realizes that the three girls' memories may hold a clue as to who the killer is, and all secrets are revealed.
This book is very good for what it is - an escapist thriller geared towards women. Spindler takes the time to develop her characters, and although the book is a bit long it is still a page turner.
I found this story a little unsettling at times but it was good and definitely different from my usual mystery novel. They aren't graphic but it is about S&M so make sure you don't have an aversion to material containing sex and bondage.
