Poised to be discovered by a fresh generation of readers, Malinda Lo’s twisty queer thriller, A Line in the Dark returns to the shelf with a striking new look.

Bestselling author and National Book Award winner Malinda Lo’s A Line in the Dark, was celebrated by critics, who praised it as “riveting” and “an increasingly complex web of secrets, lies, and murder.” In the wake of the huge success of Lo’s Last Night at the Telegraph Club, A Line in the Dark will be reissued in paperback just in time for the publication of her brand new novel. With a striking look perfect for the contemporary bookshelf, this twisty mystery will delight both thriller readers and Malinda Lo’s growing legions of fans.


When Jess Wong's best friend starts falling for Margot, a girl from the nearby boarding school, Jess can already see what’s going to happen. She's always known Angie better than Angie knows herself. As Angie drags Jess further into Margot’s circle, Jess finds more than her friend’s growing crush. Secrets lie beneath the carefree surface of this wealthy world, Jess knows Angie won’t be able to handle the consequences. When the inevitable darkness descends, Angie will need Jess to be more than a friend.
