Waterstones Says

This gorgeous 30th anniversary edition of Tartt’s classic – an impeccably crafted reverse-murder mystery steeped in evocative suspense and allusions to the ancient classics – is an essential addition to any The Secret History fan’s bookshelf.

Truly deserving of the accolade Modern Classic, Donna Tartt's cult bestseller The Secret History is a remarkable achievement - both compelling and elegant, dramatic and playful.

Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality their lives are changed profoundly and for ever.
