Perhaps you’ve recently discovered Gillian Flynn through her critically acclaimed third audiobook Gone Girl, which entered the New York Times Bestseller list on June 24, 2012 at #2 and remains there as of January 2013.

If you loved Gone Girl and are waiting for Flynn’s next suspense thriller to be published, you might want to check out her previous two novels available for download at The Audio Book Store. One of these is Dark Places.

Dark Places tells the story of Libby Day, whose mother and two sisters were slaughtered in their home when Libby was seven years old. Libby was the only family member to escape; her brother Ben, who was not home at the time, was convicted of the murders and has spent the past 25 years in prison.

Libby’s memories—and testimony—are called into question when she is contacted by a bizarre group called The Kill Club, whose members are obsessed with notorious crimes and spend countless hours reviewing and analyzing such crimes. Members of the Kill Club believe Ben has been wrongly convicted, and enlist Libby’s help to go back and speak with persons associated with the homicides in an attempt to discover the "real" killer and free Ben Day.

Like Gone Girl, Dark Places is a gripping thriller with some odd characters whose actions are consistently unpredictable, culminating in an ending that’s also totally unpredictable.

Before writing her first novel, Flynn worked for Entertainment Weekly magazine for ten years as both a movie and TV critic. Dark Places is her second novel and in addition to being a New York Times bestseller was also Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2009 and Chicago Tribune Favorite Fiction choice. Her work has been published in twenty-eight countries.

Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in the “Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas.” As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived—and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who have long forgotten her.

The Kill Club is a macabre secret society obsessed with notorious crimes. When they locate Libby and pump her for details—proof they hope may free Ben—Libby hatches a plan to profit off her tragic history. For a fee, she’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club … and maybe she’ll admit her testimony wasn’t so solid after all.

As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the narrative flashes back to January 2, 1985. The events of that day are relayed through the eyes of Libby’s doomed family members—including Ben, a loner whose rage over his shiftless father and their failing farm have driven him into a disturbing friendship with the new girl in town. Piece by piece, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started—on the run from a killer.

  • [A] nerve-fraying thriller. The New York Times
  • Flynn’s well-paced story deftly shows the fallibility of memory and the lies a child tells herself to get through a trauma. The New Yorker
  • Gillian Flynn coolly demolished the notion that little girls are made of sugar and spice in Sharp Objects, her sensuous and chilling first thriller. In DARK PLACES, her equally sensuous and chilling follow-up, Flynn…has conjured up a whole new crew of feral and troubled young females….[A] propulsive and twisty mystery. Entertainment Weekly
  • “[A] gripping thriller. Cosmopolitan
  • "Gillian Flynn is the real deal, a sharp, acerbic, and compelling storyteller with a knack for the macabre. Stephen King
  • Another winner! Harlan Coben
  • “DARK PLACES' Libby Day may seem unpleasant company at first–she's humoring those with morbid curiosities about her family's murders in order to get money out of them–but her steely nature and sharp tongue are compelling. 'I have a meanness inside me,'she says, 'real as an organ.'Yes she does, and by the end of this pitch-black novel, after we've loosened our grip on its cover and started breathing deeply again, we're glad Flynn decided to share it. Jessa Crispin, NPR.org
  • Flynn returns to the front ranks of emerging thriller writers with her aptly titled new novel . . . Those who prefer their literary bones with a little bloody meat will be riveted. Portland Oregonian
  • Gillian Flynn may turn out to be a more gothic John Irving for the 21st century, a writer who uses both a surgeon's scalpel and a set of rusty harrow discs to rip the pretty face off middle America. San Jose Mercury News

    “The world of this novel is all underside, all hard flinch, and Flynn’s razor-sharp prose intensifies this effect as she knuckles in on every sentence. . . . The slick plotting in DARK PLACES will gratify the lover of a good thriller–but so, too, will Flynn’s prose, which is ferocious and unrelenting and pure pleasure from word one.
  • Once in a while a book comes along that puts a new spin on an old idea. More than 40 years ago, Truman Capote took readers inside the Clutter farmhouse in Holcomb, KS, to show them what it was like to walk in a killer's shoes. Flynn takes modern readers back to Kansas to explore the fictional 1985 Day family massacre from the perspective of a survivor as well as the suspects. . . . tight plotting and engaging characters. Library Journal

  • Sardonic, riveting . . . Like Kate Atkinson, Flynn has figured out how to fuse the believable characters, silken prose and complex moral vision of literary fiction to the structure of a crime story. . . . You can sense trouble coming like a storm moving over the prairie, but can't quite detect its shape. Laura Miller, Salon.com
  • These characters are fully realized—so true they could step off the page….hints of what truly happened to the Day family feel painfully, teasingly paced as they forge an irresistible trail to the truth….Could. Not. Stop. Reading. Bookreporter.com
  • Libby’s voice is a pitch-perfect blend of surliness and emotionally charged imagery. . . . The Kansas in these pages is a bleak, deterministic place where bad blood and lies generate horrifically unintended consequences. Though there’s little redemption here, Flynn manages to unearth the humanity buried beneath the squalor. Bloomberg.com
  • Set in the bleak Midwest of America, this evocation of small-town life and dysfunctional people is every bit as horribly fascinating as Capote’s journalistic retelling of a real family massacre, In Cold Blood, which it eerily resembles. This is only Flynn’ s second crime novel–her debut was the award-winning Sharp Objects–and demonstrates even more forcibly her precocious writing ability and talent for the macabre. Daily Mail (UK)
  • “Flynn’s second novel is a wonderful evocation of drab small-town life. The time-split narrative works superbly and the atmosphere is eerily macabre—Dark Places is even better than the author’s award-winning Sharp Objects. The Guardian (UK)
  • A gritty, riveting thriller with a one-of-a-kind, tart-tongued heroine. Booklist, starred review
  • Flynn’s second crime thriller tops her impressive debut, Sharp Objects…When the truth emerges, it’s so twisted that even the most astute readers won’t have predicted it. Publishers Weekly, starred review
  • The sole survivor of a family massacre is pushed into revisiting a past she’d much rather leave alone, in Flynn’s scorching follow-up to Sharp Objects . . . Flynn intercuts Libby’s venomous detective work with flashbacks to the fatal day 24 years ago so expertly that as they both hurtle toward unspeakable revelations, you won’t know which one you’re more impatient to finish. . . . every sentence crackles with enough baleful energy to fuel a whole town through the coldest Kansas winter.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allyson Lyon | 2/15/2014

    " Another great Gillian Flynn book. I racked my brain trying to decide how this story would end and I was wrong wrong wrong. I love a book that can keep me guessing. The main character is so unloveable one minute you want to side with her, but then she acts like such a bitch that your sympathy fades until... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grace | 2/7/2014

    " The is my second Gillian Flynn novel and again I wonder how she can be so dark but yet make you want more. Libby Day survives a night of horror where her mother and 2 sisters are brutally murdered. As a child she testifies that she saw her brother, Ben, do the horrible deeds. Years later she is still not functioning well and is approached by a group of people who are called The Kill Club who seem like quite a group of misfits who follow murders. They approach her because they do not believe her brother did the murders. As a way to make herself some money she agrees to face her brother in prison and go back and talk about that night. With Gillian Flynn, you never known where the tale will take you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justin | 1/16/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren orso | 1/10/2014

    " presumably i don't like mysteries, but flynn is so adept at writing really compelling, modern stories i can not put down. even after figuring out the end to this, i was thrilled to keep reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marble82 | 11/1/2013

    " Gillian Flynn is the author of Gone Girl, her most recent book. Dark Places is an earlier work. It is exactly what the title suggests very dark, very gory and full of characters with very twisted minds. Still, it kept me up reading at night! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth Weston | 10/29/2013

    " The intertwining of present and past stories is tedious at times, but the author has a flair for dialogue and description. Realistically, her brother in prison for so long would have broken and disclosed the killer. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Martha Hopkins | 10/24/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonas Ehinger | 10/10/2013

    " a clear recommendation! Lots of suspension, weird characters, and a very well written book. Gillian Flynn is a star of high suspense thrillers with some horror elements, and with surprising twists and TONS of suspension. Both the book I have read by here are more or less impossible to put down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Adamich potestio | 6/20/2013

    " My least favorite of the three but still worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Themrlg | 4/9/2013

    " Compared to Flynn's other works 'Gone Girl' and 'Sharp Objects,' I feel that 'Dark Places' fell short. Yes, the characters are just as dark and twisted as in her other books, but the climax and resolution were a bit lacking. Occam's Razor would have something to say about the answer to the mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Wolfe | 4/3/2013

    " This is Gillian Flynn's second novel. "Dark Places" is not for the faint of heart, but I really enjoy the experience of an author evolving from book to book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nichole Mancone | 12/29/2012

    " Like Steig Larson, I was repulsed and offended, but I read it to the end. Vile would be an apt description. Gillian Flynn does a great job of weaving plot and character development to keep me engaged. Read it for book club, would not have otherwise chosen to read. "
