Eight Books About Friendships Turned Deadly

FriendshipsTurnedDeadly_NovelSuspectsNot all friendships last forever. It can hurt when a friendship ends, but it is a normal part of life. Sometimes, however, the end of a friendship is more than merely painful: it’s downright dangerous. This is especially the case in thrillers like the ones below, which show how lies, jealousy, and murder can fracture even the strongest of friendships. If you want suspense thrillers that will make you look at all your friends with suspicion, these are the books for you!

The books in this article all feature women who are—or pretend to be or believe themselves to be—the very best of friends. Somewhere along the line, however, something goes horribly, irreparably wrong. A few of these friendships started out sweet and turned sour, while others were lethally toxic from the get-go. Either way, you will be fascinated by the way their relationships—and multiple lives—get ripped to shreds.
