Ten years after four art students at a small New England college form a group that utilises petty acts of vandalism to highlight society's ills, two of the students (now married and with a nine-year old daughter who has OCD and an imaginary friend) begin to suspect that the leader of their group (presumed dead) may be back to "haunt" them.
This was a fast, enjoyable read. With the repeated use of flashback and very short chapters, we learn what about what happened ten years earlier at the same time as the present day events unfold.
From the plot point of view, there were some nice twists at the end though, arguably, there was perhaps just one twist too many. The writing was unobtrusive and the story weirdly entertaining.
There were some faults. The group leader's Manson-like attributes were not really convincingly described (could she really have been that magnetic?) The other group members were a bit too one-dimensional and stereotypical.
All in all, this was an enjoyable, weird, psychological mystery.
