NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl, and the basis for the major motion picture starring Charlize Theron

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 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.

Praise for Dark Places

“[A] nerve-fraying thriller.”—The New York Times

“Flynn’s well-paced story deftly shows the fallibility of memory and the lies a child tells herself to get through a trauma.”—The New Yorker

“Gillian Flynn coolly demolished the notion that little girls are made of sugar and spice in Sharp Objects, her sensuous and chilling first thriller. In Dark Places, her equally sensuous and chilling follow-up, Flynn . . . has conjured up a whole new crew of feral and troubled young females. . . . [A] propulsive and twisty mystery.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Flynn follows her deliciously creepy Sharp Objects with another dark tale . . . The story, alternating between the 1985 murders and the present, has a tense momentum that works beautifully. And when the truth emerges, it’s so macabre not even twisted little Libby Day could see it coming.”—People (4 stars)

“Crackles with peevish energy and corrosive wit.” —Dallas Morning News

“A riveting tale of true horror by a writer who has all the gifts to pull it off.”—Chicago Tribune

"It's Flynn's gift that she can make a caustic, self-loathing, unpleasant protagonist someone you come to root for.”—New York Magazine

“[A] gripping thriller.”—Cosmopolitan

"Gillian Flynn is the real deal, a sharp, acerbic, and compelling storyteller with a knack for the macabre.”—Stephen King
#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).

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? 

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY San Francisco Chronicle • St. Louis Post Dispatch • Chicago Tribune • HuffPost • Newsday

“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
Heridas abiertas es la primera novela de Gillian Flynn, autora de la exitosa Perdida y consagrada ya como maestra del thriller psicológico.

Recién salida de una breve estancia en un hospital psiquiátrico, Camille Preaker se dirige a su ciudad natal a cubrir una serie de asesinatos para el periódico en el que trabaja. Por primera vez en once años, la reportera de sucesos regresa a la inmensa mansión en la que creció, donde se tendrá que enfrentar a los recuerdos de su hermana, que murió en plena adolescencia; pero lo que más perturba a Camille es la presencia de su madre, una mujer fría y manipuladora que despierta la admiración de sus vecinos y que vive obsesionada con su salud y la de los suyos.

Con la policía local abrumada por los hechos, Camille llevará a cabo su propia investigación, desafiando las rígidas normas sociales de un pequeño pueblo de la América profunda.

Finalista del prestigioso premio Edgar de novela negra y galardonada con el Ian Fleming Steel Dagger, la primera novela de Gillian Flynn es un thriller apasionante que retrata las complicadas relaciones entre hermanas, madres e hijas, así como la sutil violencia que envuelve los nexos familiares.

Grandes autores opinan...
«Una obra admirablemente sobrecogedora, enriquecida por una escritura inteligente.»

«Los personajes son refrescantemente realistas, cargados con problemas psicológicos que enriquecen la historia. El final, que estaba seguro de poder adivinar, es impredecible.»
Augusten Burroghs

Y la prensa ha dicho...
«Tiene una percepción implacable de la imperfección humana y del mal que habita en nosotros.»
The Washington Post

«Un thriller psicológico de lectura compulsiva.»

Nick och Amy Dunne är paret som har allt. De är charmiga, smarta och framgångsrika. Efter några hektiska år i New York slår de sig ner i en liten småstad i Missouri. Men den nya tillvaron blir inte som de tänkt sig och snart avlöser grälen varandra.
På morgonen till deras femte bröllopsdag är Amy plötsligt försvunnen. I parets villa finns tydliga spår av våldsam strid. Misstankar faller snabbt på Nick, som bedyrar sin oskuld och gör vad han kan för att få polis och media på andra spår. Amys dagbok ger dock en bild av Nick som är allt annat än sympatisk.
