Synopsis

FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF GONE GIRL

Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice" of Kinnakee, Kansas.” She survived—and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club—a secret secret society obsessed with notorious crimes—locates Libby and pumps her for details. They hope to discover proof that may free Ben. Libby hopes to turn a profit off her tragic history: She’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club—for a fee. As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started—on the run from a killer.

Dark Places
Average rating
4.1 / 5
Pretty satisfying
April 30th, 2015
Unlike Gone Girl, which ends abruptly and feels like justice had been torn into pieces, Dark Places brings you to a wild goose chase of memories, lies and murder suspects and ultimately leaves you (at least somewhat) satisfied with the outcome. Gillian Flynn enthralls us in the same POV writing style that captured our interest in Gone Girl. I highly recommend this book for murder mystery enthusiasts and fans of Gone Girl.

A well described page turner. You can smell the smells and feel the same paths of the characters. I actually enjoyed this book more than Gone Girl.

Dark and capturing
February 9th, 2015
This book captured my attention, in typical Gillian Flynn style. Dark places is twisted and suspenseful, stomach churning, but exciting.

Dark but amazing
February 4th, 2015
This was the first Gillian Flynn book that I ever read! But even though the content was very dark, I was amazed by her style of writing! Even if you wanted to kick and feel bad for the main character throughout! Definitely a good read though! I recommend you read this, and gone girl! Sharp objects is next for me!
