FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF GONE GIRL

Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.

A Riveting Thriller from Gillian Flynn

Sharp Objects is a deeply disturbing, yet incisive thriller that’s not afraid to go off the ledge. it’s brutal and real in its style, with some of the most memorable characters i’ve ever followed. ultimately, it’s a book about unpacking — unpacking repressed memories of a lost childhood; unpacking the tension between women who care more for getting on each other’s toes than painting their own. of course, in the end, they're all bound to fall down, and goodness is it riveting to read!
