From The #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Of Gone Girl
Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice" of Kinnakee, Kansas. She survived—and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club—a secret secret society obsessed with notorious crimes—locates Libby and pumps her for details. They hope to discover proof that may free Ben. Libby hopes to turn a profit off her tragic history: She’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club—for a fee. As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started—on the run from a killer.

This book is fucked up. That was the exact sentence I said to my roommate once I finished the book. It was so fucked up. But oh so good. I have recently become obsessed with the My Favorite Murder podcast. If you don’t know what that is, shame on you. After listening to 36 episodes of that podcast and then reading this book…damn. I know the book is fiction, but I can completely see this happening.

This book is horrifying but I could not stop turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next.
