Dismantled by Jennifer McMahon


Dismantled by Jennifer McMahon

Ten years ago, four art students met at the small and nontraditional Sexton College in Vermont. Suz, Henry, Tess, and Val/Winnie banded together, forming a renegade group of artists known as the Compassionate Dismantlers, believing that Dismantlement=Freedom. In order to truly understand something it must be taken apart.

Under Suz's misguided direction, the group carried out missions that became more dangerous and reckless with each one until one fateful night when it all came to a crashing halt. Years later, married and raising a smart but odd daughter, Emma, Henry and Tess begin coming apart at the seems as the past comes back to haunt them.

I became a fan of McMahon's after reading Promise Not to Tell and Island of Lost Girls. This book has the same feel to it, slightly creepy and ghosty, a bit of mystery, well-written. I found myself drawn in to the story and the characters. Of the three, I still like Promise Not to Tell the best.

I agree with you, Sharon. This was a good creeper mystery. I also still liked her first one the best.
