Title: Gone Girl
Author: Gillian Flynn

Summary: Marriage can be a real killer. One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong.
As the Washington Post proclaimed, 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 with deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.
