Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

In Dark Places, Libby Day was seven years old when she saw her mother and sisters murdered while she barely escaped. Her testimony naming her brother Ben as the murderer sent him to prison. Now in her thirties, Libby becomes concerned about money as the trust fund set up for her as a child begins to run dry. To raise money, she begins to sell information and artifacts to the Kill Club, a group of people obsessed with famous murders. When she learns that the Kill Club members are convinced of Ben's innocence, she begins to doubt her own testimony from twenty-five years earlier. Digging into her own past may put her life in jeopardy again. Gillian Flynn's novel has received positive reviews with BookReporter.com saying, "This sad, violent, sometimes disheartening tale is the opposite of a feel-good read (although not without its share of rich satisfaction and hard-won redemption). It is, however, tremendously compelling. I devoured the book in a 12-hour span: Could. Not. Stop. Reading."
