about this item

When two young girls are found brutally murdered with their teeth missing, newspaper journalist Camille Peaker, whose home town the girls were found in, is sent to investigate. Over the course of her stay, Camille, who has never fully exorcised her past demons, is forced to contend once again with her mother, a woman whose toxic antics may have driven Camille to a lifetime of cutting herself, along with sundry small-town characters whose savage quirks and dark secrets make the town a veritable cesspool of human failing. With SHARP OBJECTS, Gillian Flynn delivers a startlingly dark whodunit that hums with narrative tension and chilling psychological insight.
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.
