Entertainment Weekly. Flynn follows her deliciously creepy Sharp Objects with another dark tale. The story, alternating between the 1985 murders and the present, has a tense momentum that works beautifully.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl, and the basis for the major motion picture starring Charlize TheronLibby 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.

DARK PLACES

A seven year-old little girl, Libby, testifies against her older brother Ben for the murders of her two older sisters and her mom. With Libby's words and other evidence, Ben is sentenced to life in prison.

Twenty five years later, Libby is contacted by the Kill Club. This club is one that is interested in crimes and the people involved. This club wants details from Libby. Libby is willing to do this for a price. Suffice it to say, Libby is a little messed up from being in the middle of the murders, surviving, living her life dealing with that awful night.

This Kill Club is also definitely convinced that Ben is NOT the murderer and they hope that by talking to Libby, Ben will be a free man.

So, we are off and running. I loved how this book went from past and present, jumping back and forth and explaining how events led up to that doomed night, all from various characters points-of-views. Who was involved. Who wasn't involved. Why this happened. Why this didn't happen. Flynn has a flair for writing and keeping the reader guessing and involved. The characters are disturbed, mean, calculating, believable. The situations shocking.

One thing that really bothered me was the graphic details of animal abuse and mayhem. While a part of the book and story, I didn't really appreciate reading the minute details of the slaughter of innocent animals/humans. Even though this is a murder who-dun-it, the graphics of the animal/human carnage was upsetting to me. However, as mentioned, this is all part of the story and unfortunately probably had to be.

All in all, a good read, one that will keep you guessing, keep you up until the wee hours.

Could not put this down - the story was told by bouncing back and fourth from past to present from a few different character's point-of-view. This style writing is great for keeping readers, like me, sucked into the plot. I must admit that I was a little disappointed with the ending, but enjoyed the journey of the story line so much that I still believe this novel deserves 5 stars.

Gillian Flynn has a way of creating a love-hate relationship between her characters and her readers. You love how well developed the characters are but find yourself annoyed with their flaws. Which to mean is a sign of a great writer.

This story is based on the tragic, brutal murder of a low-income, farming family. Of the family of five, only two survive, the youngest daughter, Libby Day, who is our heroine, and the oldest brother, Ben, who has been serving prison sentence for the murders for the last 25 years.A young Libby becomes the key witness of the murder case and is coerced into confessing that she witnessed her brother, Ben, commit the murders. Libby to this day is tormented by the brutal death of her mother and sisters and has never really learned how to be a functioning member of society. After 25 years of living off the donations of others and profits from a book she allowed to be written about her and her family's tragedies, the money has run out. Libby must find others ways to pay the bills. Knowing there is no way she will be able to hold down a real job, she decides to meet with members of the Kill Club, a cult-like fan club that dedicates their time obsessing over old murder cases such as the Day's.

Members of the Kill Club all have their own theories about who actually killed Libby's family and though they may not all agree on who exactly did it, they all agree that there was no way Ben himself did. With money on the mind, Libby, with the guidence of one of the main Kill Club members, Lyle, begins tracking down people from her past to ask the questions she never had the guts to ask before. As more and more facts present themselves, the more Libby is convinced her Brother is innocent. And she is the one responsible for him being locked up the last 25 years.
Finally facing the demons of her past, Libby dives into the mysterious circumstances surrounding her family's murders to seek the truth she never thought she wanted.
Rollers from Abdun
It has been 25 years since the “Kinnakee Massacre” where 15 year old Ben Day murdered his family. Fortunately, although unfortunately for her, the youngest sister, Libby Day, who was only 7 at the time, survives, with only the loss of a few fingers and toes and a lifetime of mental instability.
When Libby runs out of money and becomes desperate to survive without actually earning the money through the means of a real job, she begins considering the offer put forth by a mysterious identity who is a part of a secret “Kill Club” that focuses on notorious crimes, and begins her journey to answers.
With doubts of the reality of the events that actually occurred on that freezing Kansas night, Libby is forced to open her eyes to the possibility that the brother she has despised over the past two and a half decades may not actually be the killer of her beloved mother and two sisters.
Between the flashbacks to how life was before the murders and Libby’s life now, it’s easy to begin wondering if everything that you personally remember from your childhood is actually fact or fiction. —- Throughout the novel I found myself questioning Bens innocence and trying to piece together what happened that night along with Libby. I at times found myself on the edge of my seat wondering what’s going to happen next and wondering who the killer truly was, or if it really was Ben all along. In a similar twisted fashion as Flynn’s book Sharp Objects, I anticipated a crazy twist. Whilst this book lacked in the “super sick” twist department, it still had a lot of unpredictability to offer its readers.
I would definitely recommend this novel to anyone looking for a fast paced psychological thriller.
