From the author of the No.1 bestseller and international phenomenon GONE GIRL. Now a major HBO/SKY ATLANTIC TV series starring Amy Adams; with the director of BIG LITTLE LIES; Jean-Marc Vallee. When two girls are abducted and killed in Missouri; journalist Camille Preaker is sent back to her home town to report on the crimes. Long-haunted by a childhood tragedy and estranged from her mother for years; Camille suddenly finds herself installed once again in her family's mansion; reacquainting herself with her distant mother and the half-sister she barely knows - a precocious 13-year-old who holds a disquieting grip on the town. As Camille works to uncover the truth about these violent crimes; she finds herself identifying with the young victims - a bit too strongly. Clues keep leading to dead ends; forcing Camille to unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past to get at the story. Dogged by her own demons; Camille will have to confront what happened to her years before if she wants to survive this homecoming. 'To say this is a terrific debut novel is really too mild. I haven't read such a relentlessly creepy family saga since John Farris's ALL HEADS TURN AS THE HUNT GOES BY; and that was thirty years ago; give or take. SHARP OBJECTS isn't one of those scare-and-retreat books; its effect is cumulative. I found myself dreading the last thirty pages or so; but was helpless to stop turning them. Then; after the lights were out; the story just stayed there in my head; coiled and hissing; like a snake in a cave' STEPHEN KING 'SHARP OBJECTS is a witty; stylish; and compelling debut. A real winner' HARLAN COBEN 'Sharp; clean exciting writing that grabs you from the first page. A real pleasure' KATE ATKINSON 'Sharp Objects is one of the freshest debut thrillers to come around in a long while. It's a gripping; substantive story; stripped of cliche; and crafted with great style. The characters are refreshingly real; burdened with psychological issues that enrich the story' AUGUSTEN BURROUGHS 'With her blistering debut Sharp Objects; Gillian Flynn hit the ground running.' VAL McDERMID 'Sharp Objects is creepy; claustrophobic and dark as all hell. With a gloriously twisted plot; a brooding atmosphere and a beautifully realised central character; this is easily the best debut novel I've read in a very long time.' MARK BILLINGHAM
