By Gillian Flynn
Perfect for Gillian Flynn fans - the addictive No.1 bestselling novel GONE GIRL and the Edgar award-winning short story THE GROWNUP in one volume.
Who are you?
What have we done to each other?
These are the questions Nick Dunne finds himself asking on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they weren't made by him. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone. So what really did happen to Nick's beautiful wife?
A young woman is making a living faking it as a cut-price psychic (with some illegal soft-core sex work on the side). She makes a decent wage mostly by telling people what they want to hear. But then she meets Susan Burke.
Susan moved to the city one year ago with her husband and 15-year-old stepson Miles. They live in a Victorian house called Carterhook Manor. Susan has become convinced that some malevolent spirit is inhabiting their home. The young woman doesn't believe in exorcism or the supernatural. However when she enters the house for the first time, she begins to feel it too, as if the very house is watching her, waiting, biding its time . . .
Gillian Flynn is the bestselling author of three novels, including the international phenomenon GONE GIRL. Her first novel, SHARP OBJECTS, was the winner of two CWA Daggers and was shortlisted for the Gold Dagger, and her second, DARK PLACES, has been adapted into a film starring Charlize Theron. GONE GIRL was a massive No.1 bestseller, with over 10 million sales worldwide, and was made into a critically-acclaimed smash-hit film by David Fincher, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. The screenplay was written by Gillian and was nominated for a Golden Globe and a Bafta. THE GROWNUP won the Edgar Award for Best Short Story in 2015.
