Description

Phoebe Hall's Manhattan life is unexpectedly derailed off the fast track when her long-term boyfriend leaves her just as she is accused of plagiarizing her latest bestselling celebrity biography. Looking for a quiet place to pick up the pieces, Phoebe jumps at the offer to teach at a small private college run by her former boarding school roommate and close friend Glenda in a sleepy Pennsylvania town.

But behind the campus's quiet cafés and looming maple trees lies something darker. The body of a junior co-ed washes up from the nearby river, and soon rumors begin to swirl of of past crimes and abuses wrought by a disturbing secret society known as The Sixes.

Determined to find answers and help Glenda, Phoebe secretly embarks on a search for clues—a quest that soon raises dark memories of her own boarding school days. Plunging deeper into danger with every step, Phoebe knows she's close to unmasking a killer. But with truth comes a deeply terrifying revelation: the past can't be outrun . . . and starting over can be a crime punishable by death.

        "This is the perfect book to take on a transatlantic flight to Europe. Trust me I just did it. . . . A fast-paced plot that wraps itself up in time for you to race to the bathroom before the plane starts its descent." — Vanity Fair

        "A coed's gone missing at leafy Lyle College, and visiting prof Phoebe Hall is asking too many questions. A nifty spine-tingler." — People

        "The Sixes has all the ingredients for a fantastic summer read: an elite private school, a secret society, and a band of terrifying mean girls. In Kate White's skillful hands, it's a story that simultaneously scares and entertains." — Alafair Burke, author of Long Gone

        "The Sixes is a terrifying, psychological thriller that takes 'mean girls' to a whole new level of creepy. It's Kate White's best!" — Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Live Wire

        "You won't be able to put it down; just remember to reapply your sunscreen every so often." — Harper's Bazaar, Labor Day Weekend 'Must Reads'

        "Kate White's newest standalone is scarily good—a riveting, psychologically complex tale of mean girls, with a dark twist. You won't be able to put it down. I loved this book!" — Lisa Scottoline, New York Times bestselling author of Save Me

        "Cleverly woven with comic dialogue and sexy dates, the narrative mixes the spookiness of Twin Peaks with the scandal of Gossip Girl, plus a dash of Ian McEwan-esque drama. . . . A page-turner." — Nylon Magazine

        "Kate White writes smart." — Cleveland Plain Dealer

        "A superior mix of romantic suspense and pure mystery while avoiding clichés. . . . An academic mystery, a women's novel and an insular village mystery with the private school standing in for a small town." — South Florida Sun Sentinel

        "This thriller hooks you from the get-go-besides the adrenaline rush, this story reminded me how every experience, good or bad, forms us and makes us stronger." — First for Women

        "It was so much fun to read about the secret-girl society in The Sixes. Their evil pranks gave me chills! A fun Pretty Little Liars for grown-ups . . . I can't wait to read more from Kate. She got the evil girl thing just right." — Sara Shepard, author of the bestselling Pretty Little Liars and The Lying Game

        "Cosmo editor-in-chief White's prose—like a brisk walk through a tree-lined campus in autumn—is perfectly suited to the setting and tone of this stand-alone mystery thriller about mean girl games run amok. . . . A worthy end-of-summer beach read." — Publishers Weekly

        June 20, 2011
        Cosmo editor-in-chief White's prose—like a brisk walk through a tree-lined campus in autumn—is perfectly suited to the setting and tone of this stand-alone mystery thriller about mean girl games run amok. Disgraced celebrity tell-all author Phoebe Hall wants nothing more than to leave Manhattan for the peaceful asylum of Lyle College in rural Pennsylvania, where Lyle's president and her best friend from boarding school, Glenda Johns, has offered her a teaching job. But when Glenda asks Phoebe to look into rumors of a secret sorority known as the Sixes and a possible link to a missing coed, the idea of asylum takes on an ominously different meaning. White (Hush) ratchets up the chills as Phoebe starts to find little things, like six apples, left at her house that she takes to be attempts to frighten her. Undaunted, Phoebe persists in her investigation. Great pacing and plausible characterization with only a smidgen of forgivable contrivance make this a worthy end-of-summer beach read. Author tour.

        December 1, 2011
        Beleaguered best-selling nonfiction author Phoebe Hall accepts a temporary position as a visiting English instructor at a small Pennsylvania college and promptly finds herself involved with a serial killer, a mean-girl secret society, and a romantic liaison. Despite Jennifer Cohn's somewhat bland if adequate and nicely paced reading, White's ("Lethally Blond") crisp, action-packed writing holds the listener's attention. Cohn's female voices are easily identifiable, but her delivery could be stronger with increased use of the emotive voice and a clearer distinction among the male voices. This title will be of interest to White's fans and those into psychological thrillers. Released simultaneously with the Harper: HarerCollins print edition.--Laurie Selwyn, formerly Grayson Cty.

        October 31, 2011
        White’s latest suspense novel finds celebrity biographer Phoebe Hall—who is seeking solace from New York City, a broken romance, and a plagiarism charge—teaching at Pennsylvania’s Lyle College, a school run by Phoebe’s former roommate, Glenda Jones. But not all is well at Lyle: a coed recently drowned in a nearby lake, a serial killer may be on the loose, and the campus is plagued by a secret society of malevolent girls called the Sixes. And things only get more complicated when Glenda asks Phoebe to investigate the secret group. Jen Cohn’s narration is energetic and brisk. Except for moments of high tension, she eschews melodrama in favor of straightforward presentation. The result is an audio production that, matching the original text, entertains but seldom thrills. A Harper hardcover and consumer digital download from HarperAudio.
