I really enjoyed Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn, so I was excited to start Dark Places. I try not to read the same author back to back unless I’m reading a series, so I waited. I’m not sure I’m going to be able to do that again with Gone Girl. I’ve never seen the movie, I’m waiting until I’ve read the book, so at least I don’t know what I’m missing. Right?
So far Dark Places has kept me rapt.
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.
