Auch wenn sich die Geschichte eher langsam entwickelt, ist sie definitiv nichts für schwache Nerven. Unterhaltsame (und abgedrehte) Charaktere versuchen ihre Geheimnisse zu verstecken, bis sie zu einem verstörenden Gesamtbild zusammenfallen.

FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF GONE GIRL
Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.
