Canadian Obsessions: A Century of National Preoccupations, as Seen by MacLeans by Charlie Gillis

Three childhood friends. A malicious lie. One hell of a consequence. Growing up, Roxanne, Del, and Alice tested the limits of their friendship with cruel, and often dangerous, gamesbut they always knew they would be bound together forever. Now, Alices marriage is over, and her husband is having a child with another woman. Roxanne, an artist consumed by her work, is losing touch with her friendsand perhaps with reality. And Del is desperate to be a perfect wife and adoring stepmother, but her friends see that her careful faade is crumbling. The instrument of their destruction is a single enigmatic manVarick. He seems to be a lonely womans dream come true, but where has he come from? And what does he want? As he seduces the women in turn, their lives become unrecognizable to them. Varicks secret lies buried in their shared past. One simple, childish act has brought them, all these years later, to a place where not only their lives but also their souls are at risk. For once upon a time, the three of them agreed to tell a lieone that ruined the life of a young priest. Defrocked, destitute, and ruined, he hoped with the whole of his shattered heart that he would get revenge. And in that hope he shook hands with the one who promised it. The devil himself. Now they all must live with the consequences. Dark and provocative, Calling Mr. Lonely Hearts will keep readers in its terrifying grip long after the final, chilling page is turned.
