Uma jovem ganha a vida praticando pequenas fraudes. Seu principal talento é a capacidade de dizer às pessoas exatamente o que elas querem ouvir, e sua mais recente ocupação consiste em se passar por vidente, oferecendo o serviço de leitura de aura para donas de casa ricas e tristes.

Certo dia, ela atende Susan Burkes, que se mudou há pouco tempo para a cidade com o marido, o filho pequeno e o enteado adolescente. Experiente observadora do comportamento humano, a falsa sensitiva logo enxerga em Susan uma mulher desesperada por injetar um pouco de emoção em sua vida monótona e planeja tirar vantagem da situação.

No entanto, quando visita a impressionante mansão dos Burke, que Susan acredita ser a causa de seus problemas, e se depara com acontecimentos aterrorizantes, a jovem se convence de que há algo tenebroso à espreita. Agora, ela precisa descobrir onde o mal se esconde, e como escapar dele. Se é que há alguma chance.

Em seu estilo inconfundível que arrebatou milhares de fãs, Gillian Flynn traça surpreendentes e intrigantes perfis psicológicos dos personagens e tece uma narrativa repleta de suspense ao mesmo tempo em que brinca com elementos clássicos do sobrenatural.

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?

“Absorbing . . . In masterly fashion, Flynn depicts the unraveling of a marriage—and of a recession-hit Midwest—by interweaving the wife’s diary entries with the husband’s first-person account.”New Yorker

“Ms. Flynn writes dark suspense novels that anatomize violence without splashing barrels of blood around the pages . . . Ms. Flynn has much more up her sleeve than a simple missing-person case. As Nick and Amy alternately tell their stories, marriage has never looked so menacing, narrators so unreliable.”The Wall Street Journal

“The story unfolds in precise and riveting prose . . . even while you know you’re being manipulated, searching for the missing pieces is half the thrill of this wickedly absorbing tale.”O: The Oprah Magazine
