9780099581628: Black Chalk

A compulsively readable psychological thriller set in New York and at Oxford University, in which a game of truth or dare ends with tragic results   One game. Six students. Five survivors. It was only ever meant to be a game played by six best friends in their first year at Oxford University; a game of consequences, silly forfeits, and childish dares. But then the game changed: the stakes grew higher and the dares more personal and more humiliating, finally evolving into a vicious struggle with unpredictable and tragic results. Now, 14 years later, the remaining players must meet again for the final round. Who knows better than your best friends what would break you? A gripping psychological thriller partly inspired by the author's own time at Oxford University, this is perfect for fans of The Secret History and The Bellwether Revivals. The author's background in puzzle writing and setting can clearly be seen in the plotting of this clever, tricky book that will keep readers guessing to the very end.

From the Inside Flap:

How well do you know your best friends? How far would you go to protect them? How far would you go to break them? It was only ever meant to be a game. A game of consequences, of silly forfeits, childish dares. A game to be played by six best friends in their first year at Oxford University. But then the game changed: the stakes grew higher and the dares more personal, more humiliating, evolving into a vicious struggle with unpredictable and tragic results. Now, fourteen years later, the remaining players must meet again for the final round.

From the Back Cover:

Tell me, what did we do that was so wrong?We played a game. That's all. A game.But then there were the consequences, the price paid for losing.We went too far.I went too far.But it was never supposed to be that sort of game.
