Libby Day was seven when her mother and 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 society obsessed with notorious crimes – locates Libby and pumps her for details.  The hope to discover proof that may free Ben.  Libby hopes to turn a profit off her tragic history:  She’ll meet with the players from that night and report her findings to the Kill 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.

Gillian Flynn has done it again.  This book was just as crazy – if not more than – Gone Girl.  The twists and turns were countless.  And each of them left me more on edge than before.  It was really intense in a scary, yet good way.
