Right now everybody is all about Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. It was good, but one of her other books was a lot better in my opinion. Sharp Objects was my favorite of her three books.
Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family’s Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.
Synopsis from Amazon.com
This book had what I thought Gone Girl lacked. Justice and closure. Dark and disturbing as well as all of her books seem to be. I really enjoyed this book. If anyone liked Gone Girl or if you like mystery/thrillers in general, I would check this book out.
