Kate White, author of the New York Times bestselling Bailey Weggins mystery series and the standalone thriller Hush—as well as the editor-in-chief of the #1 young women’s magazine in the world, Cosmopolitan—once again brings us a taut whodunit in The Sixes.

Phoebe Hall’s life has begun to unravel—no sooner did her long term boyfriend break off the relationship when she was accused of plagiarizing her latest bestselling celebrity biography.  Looking for a quiet place to put her life back together, she jumps at the offer to leave Manhattan and teach at a small private college in Pennsylvania run by her former boarding school roommate.

Not long after she arrives, a body of a female student washes up from a nearby river and a number of dark and deadly mysteries begin to emerge. One of those mysteries involves a powerful secret society known as The Sixes.  The Sixes are an all-girl group that help each other get whatever they want, no matter what—and wield their power from the shadows. Those who try to leave the group may soon find their lives in jeopardy.

Phoebe, who had recently met the dead girl, becomes obsessed with solving her murder... if she can survive long enough. She secretly embarks on a quest that soon raises dark memories of her own boarding school days and it’s obvious that there are many who don’t like the spotlight Phoebe is shining.  Even worse, Phoebe will have to figure this mystery out on her own, for everyone she knows—or thinks she knows—is looking more and more like a suspect. As Phoebe digs deeper, she uncovers more incriminating information about the Sixes, but are they really capable of murder? And if not, who is the killer preying on the campus?
