#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 “One of the Best Books of the Decade”)—now featuring never-before-published deleted scenes

ONE OF TIME'S 100 BEST MYSTERY AND THRILLER BOOKS OF ALL TIME, ONE OF CNN'S MOST INFLUENTIAL BOOKS OF THE DECADE, AND ONE OF ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S BEST BOOKS OF THE DECADE

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? 

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: San Francisco Chronicle, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The Chicago Tribune, HuffPost, Newsday

Suspense!

Nobody writes psychopathology better than Gillian Flynn. She has the unique ability to write characters that are truly dislikable in many ways, yet we root for their success while at the same hoping they get their comeuppance.
This is the story of a married couple who seem perfect. The wife goes missing and we learn about betrayals, lies, and maybe even murder.

really disliked this book

I love twists and turns, but I did not think they were enough to redeem this book. There is not one character that I liked or cared about. I kept reading it because there were so many positive reviews, but I do not get why anyone would like this book. The ending was not very satisfying. I vote for murder suicide at the end, so the world would no longer be inflicted with these people.

This is Gillian Flynn's best work so far! I couldn't put it down.
