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

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 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.

Comment:
I had no clue of the depth into which this story would go. It was dark and sad, and yet compelling as hell. Libby Day is painted as an unlikable character...but seriously, how do you not be f*cked up with what she had to live through, and she f*cking owns that shit. The ending threw me for a loop, and others have said that they didn't find it believable...I can see that, but inevitably however you feel about the ending, there's no denying that this is one twisted story.  (+1 vote)
