Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.. This is a scavenger hunt for a missing, brainy wife that will turn you inside out and upside down between plot twists and narrative polygraphy gone wrong. Fast, and a fury.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"This is the hardest part,’ confides one of the untrustworthy narrators in GONE GIRL (Crown, $25), ‘waiting for stupid people to figure things out.’ There’s no need to rub it in, because Gillian Flynn’s latest novel of psychological suspense will confound anyone trying to keep up with her quicksilver mind and diabolical rules of play. Not that there’s anything underhanded about her intentions: she promises to deliver an account of the troubled marriage of Nick and Amy Dunne, who alternate as narrators, and so she does. The trickery is in the devilish way she tells their story."

The New York Times

"An irresistible summer thriller with a twisting plot worthy of Alfred Hitchcock. Burrowing deep into the murkiest corners of the human psyche, this delectable summer read will give you the creeps and keep you on edge until the last page."


Author bio: GILLIAN FLYNN’s debut novel, Sharp Objects, was an Edgar Award finalist and the winner of two of Britain’s Dagger Awards. She lives in Chicago with her husband, Brett Nolan, and a rather giant cat named Roy. More information can be found here:
