Sandy, David, and Peter met as bored teenagers vacationing with their parents on a small resort island. The horrific crime they committed five years ago bound them together forever, cursing their friendship in blood and setting them on a path toward nihilism and destruction. Now in their early twenties, the glamorous and sophisticated trio has come to an exclusive ski resort just days before Christmas to satisfy their appetite for danger and enjoy the physical company of the only human beings they can still tolerate: one another. But an interloper soon finds her way into their closed circle. Mary Margaret is no gullible innocent. She's smart and mischievous and appears bent on tearing the friends apart. Will Sandy, Peter, and David keep their sinister menage-A-trois intact, or have they finally met their match' On the steep and icy slopes of Semanee Peak, a dangerous game of cat and mouse comes to a shattering end.

New York Times Bestseller: A passionate, "no-holds-barred" story of an illicit suburban love affair from the acclaimed author of The Blackboard Jungle (TheNew York Times). Larry Cole has everything a man could want. He loves his wife, Eve, and is devoted to their two small sons. His career as an architect is both creatively satisfying and financially rewarding. His house in suburban Pinecrest Manor is attractive and comfortable. But then Larry sees a new neighbor standing at the school bus stop. Margaret Gault is young, blond, beautiful-and married. She's everything Larry didn't realize was missing from his life, and he must have her. Maggie tells Larry she's never been in love. But this isn't about love. It's about need and desire. Touch and taste and risk. And lies. Larry and Maggie surrender to lust, knowing their secret motel rendezvous and lunch-hour trysts will amount to nothing; they will always be strangers to each other. But actions have consequences. And sometimes consequences can be deadly. Author Evan Hunter adapted his riveting novel of infidelity into a film starring Kirk Douglas and Kim Novak. A torrid tale of sexual compulsion and the secrets lurking beneath the most placid of surfaces, Strangers When We Meet is an early masterpiece from the creator of the bestselling 87th Precinct series
