Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read The #1 New York Times Bestseller On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?

"Gillian Flynn is the real deal, a sharp, acerbic, and compelling storyteller with a knack for the macabre." —Stephen King This exclusive ebook collection brings together the three novels from bestselling author Gillian Flynn. A #1 New York Times bestseller, Gone Girl is an unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that Flynn’s 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 wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn. Flynn’s second novel, Dark Places, is an intricately orchestrated thriller that ravages a family's past to unearth the truth behind a horrifying crime. A New York Times bestseller and Weekend Today Top Summer Read, Dark Places solidified Flynn’s status as one of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time. In Sharp Objects, Flynn’s debut novel, a young journalist returns home to cover a dark assignment—and to face her own damaged family history. With its taut, crafted writing, Sharp Objects is addictive, haunting, and unforgettable.

Von der Mega-Bestsellerautorin Gillian Flynn (»Gone Girl«), die für diese Story den Edgar Award für die beste Kurzgeschichte 2015 gewonnen hat. Die junge Nerdy hatte es bislang nicht leicht im Leben und bestreitet ihren Lebensunterhalt mit Wahrsagerei und sexuellen Dienstleistungen. Sie verdient nicht schlecht – meistens erzählt sie den Leuten genau das, was sie hören wollen. Bis sie Susan Burke trifft. Susan lebt in Carterhook Manor, einem alten viktorianischen Haus aus dem Jahr 1893, zusammen mit ihrem Mann, ihrem Sohn und ihrem Stiefsohn Miles. Susan ist völlig verängstigt, denn sie ist davon überzeugt, dass ein böser Geist von Haus und Stiefsohn Besitz ergriffen hat. Nerdy soll kommen und das Haus davon befreien. Die junge Frau glaubt weder an Geister noch an sonstige übernatürliche Dinge, aber hier bietet sich die Chance, sehr viel Geld zu verdienen. Aber als sie das Haus zum ersten Mal betritt und auch Miles trifft, fühlt sie es auch: Hier spukt kein Geist, hier lauert etwas Anderes. Etwas absolut Böses. Etwas, das töten will.

Gillian Flynn’s Edgar Award-winning homage to the classic ghost story, published for the first time as a standalone. A canny young woman is struggling to survive by perpetrating various levels of mostly harmless fraud. On a rainy April morning, she is reading auras at Spiritual Palms when Susan Burke walks in. A keen observer of human behavior, our unnamed narrator immediately diagnoses beautiful, rich Susan as an unhappy woman eager to give her lovely life a drama injection. However, when the "psychic" visits the eerie Victorian home that has been the source of Susan’s terror and grief, she realizes she may not have to pretend to believe in ghosts anymore. Miles, Susan’s teenage stepson, doesn’t help matters with his disturbing manner and grisly imagination. The three are soon locked in a chilling battle to discover where the evil truly lurks and what, if anything, can be done to escape it. “The Grownup,” which originally appeared as “What Do You Do?” in George R. R. Martin’s Rogues anthology, proves once again that Gillian Flynn is one of the world’s most original and skilled voices in fiction.
