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.

Sharp Objects
We're all vociferously reading through Gillian Flynn's all too small bibliography, right? I know I am. Sharp Objects was Flynn's debut novel, and though there are ghosts of Gone Girl in the pages, and Flynn once again masterfully strides deep into the darker sides of women and their natures, this book is an entirely different sort of animal. Camille Preaker is a journalist sent back to her home town to investigate the murders of a string of young girls. Unfortunately, the homecoming forced to reconnect with her estranged mother. The unhappy childhood she suffered with her family manifests into self harming behaviors, and it isn't too long before the specter of doubt is cast upon her family. I won't say anymore, because as with all Gillian Flynn novels, to drop even a hint is to spoil the book completely! It's a chilling, engrossing read. Reviewed by 42bj
