Free for Kindle for a Limited Time

Ariel (Classic Crime Library Book 16) - Kindle edition by Lawrence Block. Mystery, Thriller & Suspense Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.  “Originally marketed as "occult horror", Ariel is neither. It's a story of the madness that lies just under the surface, and what it takes to bring it out; the need to give evil a face and a name. Who better to scapegoat for unexplainable tragedies than the one who is Different? Ariel is adopted, and looks slightly unusual. Her unstable mother never fails to assume the worst, almost deliberately misreading the girl's ordinary teenage perceptiveness and need for privacy. By the book's end, almost everyone believes that Ariel is a monster -- including Ariel herself.

Remarkable how much suspense fiction and drama is lumped into horror...depends on the commercial winds of the moment, I guess.

I remember finding a copy of ARIEL in a small used bookstore in Myrtle Beach when we were on vacation there years ago. It's a fairly rare Block book.

I found one here in Alvin, but it was only a book club edition.

I doubt I'll ever read it, but...the price is right.
