Fall is in the air and classes are back in session. It's the perfect time for Donna Tartt's modern classic. Set against the backdrop of academic life, The Secret History, is a dark tale about an inner circle of students whose intense study of ancient Greek language and culture leads them to commit a heinous crime. The pace quickens as the group struggles to keep their secret under wraps and they begin to turn on each other. Tartt will have you up late cramming, but in a thoroughly enjoyable way.
