From The Bestselling Author OfGone Girl #1 New York Times Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were killed at Kinnakee, Kansas, in "The Satan Sacrifice." She survived—and famously testified that her brother of fifteen years, Ben, was the murderer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill... Club—a secret secret society obsessed with notorious crimes—locates Libby for details and pumps her. They are hoping to find evidence that may set Ben free. Libby hopes to turn her tragic history off a profit: from that night she will reconnect with the players and report her findings to the club—for a fee. The unimaginable truth is emerging as Libby's search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned tourist towns in Oklahoma, and Libby finds herself right back where she started—on the run from a killer.

Quotes from Dark Places

I felt something loosen in me, that shouldn't have loosened. A stitch come undone.

I have a meanness inside me, real as an organ. Slit me at my belly and it might slide out, meaty and dark, drop on the floor so you could stomp on it.

I was not a lovable child, and I'd grown into a deeply unlovable adult. Draw a picture of my soul, and it'd be a scribble with fangs.

I am, I guess, depressed. I guess I've been depressed for about twenty-four years. I can feel a better version of me somewhere in there - hidden behind a liver or attached to a bit of spleen within my stunted, childish body - a Libby that's telling me to get up, do something, grow up, move on. But the meanness usually wins out. (2)

I've had the blues for twenty-four years.

Sometimes he felt like he'd been gone his whole life--in exile, away from the place he was supposed to be, and that, soldier-like, he was pining to be returned. Homesick for a place he'd never been.

Reviews of Dark Places

Flynn intercuts Libby’s venomous detective work with flashbacks to the fatal day 24 years ago...Only the climax, which is incredible in both good ways and bad, is a letdown.

The time-split narrative works superbly, and the atmosphere is eerily macabre - Dark Places is even better than the author's award-winning Sharp Objects

Knowing it could be your family, or the family you might have someday, draws you deeper into their sad lives and creates a sense of fear, despair, and even hope for not just the Day family, but for you, as well.

Dark Places will take readers to their very own dark place, but it’s a compelling and suspenseful emotional journey.
