In Evil Eye, Oates offers four chilling tales of love gone horribly wrong, showing the lengths people will go to find love, keep it, and sometimes end it.

When her husband's brazen first wife visits one night, Mariana learns a terrible secret that threatens her marriage and sanity. In "So Near, Anytime, Always," shy teenager Lizbeth meets Desmond, a charming boy who offers this introverted girl the first sparks of young romance. Yet just as their relationship begins to blossom, Lizbeth realizes that beneath Desmond's perfect faȧde lies a dark soul that could wreak havoc on Lizbeth and her loved ones. In "The Execution," spoiled college student Bart Hansen has planned the perfect, brutal crime to get back at his parents for their years of condescension. Yet what he didn't plan for is a mother whose love is more resilient than he could have ever imagined, who threatens to derail his carefully laid-out plans.

When his first wife comes to stay with them, she warns the new bride that her husband is insane, and that she must find a way to protect herself. In So Near Anytime Always, a fateful meeting in a library leads to a boy's obsessive interest in a teenage girl. In The Execution, spoiled college student Bart Hansen has forgotten to factor in one person in his plan to commit the perfect, brutal crime: his mother. And in The Flatbed, a beautiful young woman struggles with frigidity until a shocking act releases her.All the novellas in this collection revolve around the theme of love gone wrong--horribly, shockingly wrong., Secrecy, Short stories, American., Supense fiction, American., Unabridged., Violence, [United States]:Grove/Atlantic, Inc.,2013., [United States]:HighBridge, a division of Recorded Books ,2013., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, eBook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/csp_9780802194022_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/rcb_9781611749618_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text file, texttxt, vii, 216 p. ;22 cm.
