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

Libby 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.


  • The best book I have ever read

    By PMLuper
    This book is incredible. I am at a loss for words. The authors description of everything from the characters to the scenery to the scents...,you feel as if you are literally watching the story line as opposed to reading it. Buy this! You will not be disappointed.
  • Great book!

  • Great Thriller Read!

    By D.W. ARTHUR
    After reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, I was inclined to read all her other works, naturally, and this one, by far, is my most favorite by her. The jumps of perspective are so brilliant, they are years and years apart and yet, still flow seamlessly into a wonderful story. This story is gory and raunchy and quite disturbing in all the best ways possible. Thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it!
  • Skip it

    This book is incredibly dark. I expected some doom and gloom from the synopsis, but this just keeps delving deeper into uncomfortable territory. I had nightmares from it because it was just unnecessarily disturbing. The characters are all unlikable. The ending is ridiculous. Skip it.

    By Cathy Esq.
    I can't believe this is a best selling author. I couldn't even get through the free sample, boring overdone descriptions trying to be literary . . . Ridiculous character descriptions. Can't believe anyone pays good money for this book or writes a good review.
