Marriage can be a real killer.
One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our
time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes
that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable
masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong.
The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that her work
“draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure
but nasty addiction.” Gone Girl’s toxic mix of
sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a
nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.
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 from their rented
McMansion on the Mississippi River. 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?
As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering
how well they know the one that they love. With his twin
sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence.
Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful
wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the
back of her bedroom closet?
With her razor-sharp writing and trademark
psychological insight, Gillian Flynn delivers a fast-paced,
devilishly dark, and ingeniously plotted thriller that
confirms her status as one of the hottest writers around.
