I have a meanness inside me, real as an organ.
Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were
murdered in Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas.Ă˘â‚¬Âť As
her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse
into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and
toes, but she survivedĂ˘â‚¬â€śand famously testified that her
fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five
years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives
off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers whoĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ve long
The Kill Club is a macabre secret society obsessed with
notorious crimes. When they locate Libby and pump her for
detailsĂ˘â‚¬â€śproof they hope may free BenĂ˘â‚¬â€śLibby hatches a plan to
profit off her tragic history. For a fee, sheĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ll reconnect
with the players from that night and report her findings to
the club . . . and maybe sheĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ll admit her testimony wasnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t
so solid after all.
As LibbyĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs
to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the narrative flashes
back to January 2, 1985. The events of that day are relayed
through the eyes of LibbyĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s doomed family membersĂ˘â‚¬â€śincluding
Ben, a loner whose rage over his shiftless father and their
failing farm have driven him into a disturbing friendship
with the new girl in town. Piece by piece, the unimaginable
truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she
startedĂ˘â‚¬â€śon the run from a killer.
