Depois do sucesso de Garota exemplar, primeiro best-seller de Gillian Flynn adaptado para o cinema, chega a vez de Sharp Objects: Objetos cortantes — livro de estreia da autora —, inspirar a nova série da HBO. Protagonizada por Amy Adams, Sharp Objects terá oito episódios e direção de Jean-Marc Vallée, que também dirigiu a premiada série da HBO Big Little Lies, com Nicole Kidman e Reese Witherspoon.

Com reviravoltas surpreendentes, Sharp Objects: Objetos cortantes narra o retorno da repórter Camille Preaker, recém-saída de um hospital psiquiátrico, à sua cidade natal para investigar o brutal assassinato de uma menina e o desaparecimento de outra. Desde que deixou a pequena Wind Gap, no Missouri, oito anos antes, Camille quase não falou com a mãe neurótica, o padrasto e a meia-irmã que praticamente não conhece. Hospedada na casa da família, a jornalista precisa lidar com as memórias difíceis de sua infância e adolescência. E à medida que as investigações para elaborar sua matéria avançam, Camille passa a desvendar segredos perturbadores, tão macabros quanto os problemas que ela própria enfrenta.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The “mercilessly entertaining” (Vanity Fair) instant classic “about the nature of identity and the terrible secrets that can survive and thrive in even the most intimate relationships” (Lev Grossman, Time).

NAMED ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BOOKS OF THE DECADE BY CNN • NAMED ONE OF TIME’S TEN BEST FICTION BOOKS OF THE DECADE AND ONE OF ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY’S BEST BOOKS OF THE DECADE

NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Janet Maslin, The New York Times • People • Entertainment Weekly • O: The Oprah Magazine • Slate • Kansas City Star • USA Today • Christian Science Monitor

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
