With the reveal of one terrible secret in high school, Kit is traumatized for life. When the teller of that terrible secret pops back up in her life a decade later, Kit knows they’ve come to a precipice: stagger backwards or fall off? Released in July, Megan Abbott’s thriller “Give Me Your Hand” takes place mostly in a lab of competitive scientists, or a “nest of vipers,” as Kit says repeatedly. When the situation turns deadly, the reader is left guessing for a number of pages, in a most delightfully dark and compelling way; Amazon.com.
