"I love reading about the varied human experience in both fiction and nonfiction. I’ll read almost anything but I gravitate towards historical fiction, mysteries, and magical fantasy."

From the same author who wrote Gone Girl. A reporter returns to her childhood home to cover two terrible events: one girl’s murder and another’s disappearance. A quick, chilling read with a dark, disturbing ending. I enjoyed this even more than Gone Girl.
