Calling Mr Lonely Hearts

New or Used: $16.95
Growing up, Roxanne, Del, and Alice tested the limits of their friendship with cruel and often dangerous games - safe in the knowledge that they were bound together forever. Now, Alice's marriage is over, and her husband is having a child with another woman. Roxanne, an artist consumed by her work, is losing touch with her friends - and perhaps with reality. And Del is desperate to be a perfect wife and adoring stepmother, but her friends see that her careful facade is crumbling. The instrument of their destruction is the enigmatic Varick. He seems to be a lonely woman's dream come true, but as he seduces each of the women in turn, their lives become unrecognisable to them - and their souls, perhaps irretrievable. Varick's secret lies buried in their shared past. One simple, childish act has brought them, all these years later, to a place where their lives are at risk. For once upon a time, the three of them agreed to tell a lie - one that ruined a life ...And now they all must live with the consequences.

About the Author

Laura Benedict's first novel was Isabella Moon. She lives in Southern Illinois with her husband and two children.


Advance praise for "Calling Mr. Lonely Hearts" "Laura Benedict paints a vibrant picture of lives haunted by the past-where sins of the spirit meet sins of the flesh and no character is left unscathed."-Jonathan Santlofer, author of" The Death Artist" and" Anatomy of Fear" "A lush, intelligent novel that elevates the typical horror story into a fascinating and often diabolical character study that enthralls even as it terrifies. This is a beautiful, spine-tingling thriller of revenge, secrets, and simmering childhood resentments with otherworldly surprises around every corner. Calling Mr. Lonely Hearts is one of the best books I've read in years."-Amanda Stevens, author of" The Dollmaker" and" The Devil's Footprints" "Deliciously malevolent-Benedict's writing is like a beautiful, poisonous flower."-Alexandra Sokoloff, author of" The Harrowing" and "The Price"
