NOW AN HBO® LIMITED SERIES STARRING AMY ADAMS, NOMINATED FOR EIGHT EMMY AWARDS, INCLUDING OUTSTANDING LIMITED SERIES
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.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Like her breakthrough hit Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn's first novel takes us into the disturbing world of an unpredictable character. Narrator Ann Marie Lee nails the complicated Camille: a damaged, jaded, and suspicious newspaper reporter who returns to her hometown to investigate the murders of two young girls. Lee’s performance drew us even deeper into Flynn’s expertly paced story of small-town murder and festering family secrets, turning our expectations upside down with each jolting twist. Listen before you see the HBO miniseries starring Amy Adams.

I thought the book started out kind of slow and then the ending sped up a little too quickly. However, I really enjoyed this book overall! I have to be very interested to stick with a book and I listened to it within 3 days. This was my first audiobook and from several previews I’ve listened to I felt I would be extremely picky with narrators. This narrator was absolutely exceptional though! I wish all audiobook narrators were this good.
This is a keeper! I couldn't stop listening The reader keeps you engaged and she does a wonderful job with each character. I thought I had it figured out but I was wrong.
Thank you Gillian Flynn
