Book Spotlight: Black Chalk

Occasionally I like to just highlight a book - shine the spotlight on it - that I've seen that looks interesting.

Today I'm sharing:

Black Chalk
by Christopher J. Yates

This book just look intriguing! I don't think it's YA at all, so it's rare for me to even pay it notice.  But the description just grabs me and makes me want to read it!
I have a gift card at Amazon so it might be in my future!

A compulsively readable psychological thriller set in New York and at Oxford University in which a group of six students play an elaborate game of dares and consequences with tragic result

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, fourteen 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, Black Chalk is perfect for fans of the high tension and expert pacing of The Secret History and The Bellwether Revivals. Christopher J. Yates' background in puzzle writing and setting can clearly be seen in the plotting of this clever, tricky book that will keep you guessing to the very end.
