Gone Girl

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage,  Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary.  Presents are being wrapped and plans are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears.  As the police begin to investigate, the town golden boy parades a series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior.  Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter – but is he really a killer?

This books was full of plot twists.  I didn’t see any of them coming.  And Gillian Flynn takes up a new place as one of my favorite authors.  Amy Elliott Dunne is the most dynamic, complex characters I’ve read.  I thought I knew what good stories were made of, but Flynn takes it to a whole other level.  I obviously still have lots to learn.
