About the Book

The Spite Game

Anna Snoekstra's THE SPITE GAME is Liane Moriarty meets Stephen King: a walk on the darker side of domestic suspense with toe-dips into horror. The cinematic writing style and taut pacing that landed Anna's Only Daughter in Hollywood is firmly in place, and made more impactful structured as a revenge plot that also tackles themes of isolation, self-worth and the very gray area between right and wrong.

Getting even is a long game.

Mercilessly bullied in high school, Ava knows she needs to put the past behind her and move on, but she can't --- not until she's exacted precise, catastrophic revenge on the people who hurt her the most.

At 21, she watches Saanvi. Flawlessly chic and working hard at a top architectural firm, Saanvi has it all together on the surface. But everyone does bad things when they think no one is watching and Ava only wants what's fair --- to destroy Saanvi's life the way her own was destroyed.

At 24 Ava watches Cass. She's there as Cass tries on wedding dresses, she’s there when Cass picks out a cake, she's there when Cass betrays her fiancé. She's there when Cass's entire future comes crashing down.

Finally, at 28, she watches Mel. Mel was always the ringleader and if anyone has to pay, it's her. But Mel is different. One tiny slip-up and Ava realizes the truth: Mel knows she’s watching, and she’s ready to play Ava’s games to the bitter end.
