Description
(A New Yorker Best Book of 2009) "I have a meanness inside me, real as an organ," warns the narrator of this harrowing yet redemptive thriller, the second novel from the Dagger Award–winning author of Sharp Objects. Libby Day was seven when her family was murdered in the "Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas." As her mother and sisters lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived—and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother Ben was the killer. Decades later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby is running out of the charitable contributions that have supported her. To earn some money, she promises to dig up new information for a group obsessed with the murders—but the truth may be much worse than what she told herself all those years ago.

"Desperate for cash 24 years later, Libby reluctantly agrees to meet members of the Kill Club, true crime enthusiasts who bicker over famous cases. She's shocked to learn most of them believe Ben is innocent and the real killer is still on the loose. Though initially interested only in making a quick buck hocking family memorabilia, Libby is soon drawn into the club's pseudo-investigation, and begins to question what exactly she saw—or didn't see—the night of the tragedy. Flynn fluidly moves between cynical present-day Libby and the hours leading up to the murders through the eyes of her family members. When the truth emerges, it's so twisted that even the most astute readers won't have predicted it."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
