Dark Places – A Novel by Gillian Flynn: New York Bestseller. In the New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl, and Also the basis for the major motion picture starring Charlize Theron.
Libby Day was seven when her mum and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas.” Twenty-five years after, the Kill Club–a secret society obsessed with infamous crimes–locates Libby and pumps her for details. They hope to detect proof that can free Ben.
Edgar-finalist Flynn’s second crime thriller tops her remarkable introduction, Sharp Objects. When Libby Day’s mom and two older sisters were slaughtered in the family’s Kansas farmhouse, it had been seven-year-old Libby’s testimony that sent her 15-year-old brother, Ben, to prison for life. Desperate for cash 24 years later, Libby reluctantly agrees to meet members of the Kill Club, true crime fans who bicker over famous scenarios. She’s shocked to learn the majority of them believe Ben is innocent and that the real killer remains on the loose.
Libby hopes to turn a profit off her tragic history: She’ll reconnect with all the players from that evening and report her findings into the club–for a charge. As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the unthinkable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she began on the run from a killer.
Sharp Objects with another Dark narrative… The narrative, alternating between the 1985 murders along with the present, has a tense momentum which operates beautifully. And when the truth emerges, it’s so macabre not even twisted little Libby Day could see it coming.” — Folks (4 stars)
Dark Places’ Libby Day might seem unpleasant companion at first–she’s humoring people who have morbid curiosities about her family’s murders in order to get money out of these but her steely nature and sharp tongue are persuasive.’ I have a meanness inside me,’she says,’real as a manhood. ‘Yes she does, and from the end of this pitch-black novel, once we have loosened our grip on its cover and began breathing again, we are glad Flynn decided to discuss it.
