Gone Girl | by Gillian Flynn

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
(Crown, 2012, 432 pages)

Talk about a page turner!  After Nick and Amy lose their jobs, Nick drags his NYC born and bred wife back to his small Missouri home town to take care of his dying mother and aging father.  Their marriage on the rocks, Amy disappears on the day of their 5th anniversary.  Of course Nick is the prime suspect, it’s always the husband right?  You get both sides of the marriage story from Nick and then from Amy’s journal but things are not always what they seem in this story.  I loved it, and now I’m going to read her other two novels.   There is a little extra interest because it is set so close to home, a Mississippi river town close to Hannibal.
