'Dark Places' by Gillian Flynn

Mystery Book Club Selection for April

Dark Places bookcoverJoin us on Thursday, April 4 to discuss Gillian Flynn's Dark Places.

Libby was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kannakee, Kansas."  As her family lay dying, she fled and survived to testify that her brother, Ben, was the killer.  Twenty-five years later, when a society obsessed with notorious crimes contacts Libby hoping for proof that may free Ben, she hatches a plan to profit from her tragic history.  For a fee she will reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club.  As the narrative is relayed through Libby's family members' eyes, piece by piece, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself on the run from a killer.
