Остались следы борьбы в доме, кровь, которую явно пытались стереть, - и цепочка «ключей» в игре под названием «охота за сокровищами»; красивая, умная и невероятно изобретательная жена ежегодно устраивала ее для своего обожаемого мужа. И похоже, что эти «ключи» - размещенные ею тут и там странные записки и не менее странные безделушки – дают единственный шанс пролить свет на судьбу исчезнувшей. Вот только не придется ли «охотнику» в процессе поиска раскрыть миру и пару-тройку собственных малосимпатичных тайн?

Description : "Gillian Flynn is the real deal, a sharp, acerbic, and compelling storyteller with a knack for the macabre." —Stephen King This exclusive ebook collection brings together the three novels from bestselling author Gillian Flynn.

Flynn’s second novel, Dark Places, is an intricately orchestrated thriller that ravages a family's past to unearth the truth behind a horrifying crime. A New York Times bestseller and Weekend Today Top Summer Read, Dark Places solidified Flynn’s status as one of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time. In Sharp Objects, Flynn’s debut novel, a young journalist returns home to cover a dark assignment—and to face her own damaged family history. With its taut, crafted writing, Sharp Objects is addictive, haunting, and unforgettable.

Description : What do you get when you take the amazing GONE GIRL story, replace the lame anniversary treasure hunts with deadly SAW movie-esque traps and have all the craziness investigated by lunatic detectives channeling the ones from the television show THE KILLING? You get an unputdownable and hilarious parody of EPIC proportions. Don’t miss it! Marriage can be a real nightmare; especially when your wife is a sociopath, who's either trying to kill you, frame you for her disappearance or maybe even both. Supported by his sister whose own behavior is inappropriate at best, a pair of lunatic detectives and in-laws with questionable motives, Rick Dunce tries to navigate the tricky waters of exactly how one should act when the woman he absolutely can’t stand disappears without a trace. If this Husband-of-the-Year is truly responsible, did he act in self-defense or did one too many bizarre quiz questions or inane treasure hunt clues finally push him over the edge? Whether Winnie is missing, dead or just hiding out, the only thing that's certain is she's so far gone that it's not even funny— except that it is. A parody of, Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn's acclaimed and runaway bestselling masterpiece, So Far Gone, Girl, will leave you doubled over with laughter, gasping for breath and checking to see if your own ottoman can really balance on its side like that. What readers are saying... "... there are some great one-liners... And that ending was great. I think it's the ending a lot of us hoped for, but didn't get, in GONE GIRL" - Nenia Campbell (The Armchair Librarian) "... kept me glued to the pages in elated hilarity. From the first line, I was cracking up, and that didn't relent almost the entire time." - Hayden Casey (The Teen Bookworm) "... I started laughing the first page and never stopped. I've read the original and let me tell you, while I was shocked and couldn't stop reading about that crazy wife and the insane thing she did, nothing compares to Luke Young's version. I really enjoyed this story. A great read!"
