Review of Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

After reading 'Gone Girl' by Gillian Flynn I had to immediately download some of her earlier novels and Dark Places did not disappoint.

Dark Places follows the character of Libby Day as she sets off on a journey to undercover the truth.  We meet Libby as a young woman.  She lives alone and is  severely disturbed and haunted by her past.  Her background is revealed when we realise that Libby's family where brutally murdered in their home when Libby was just seven years old.  She managed to escape and her older brother Ben is imprisoned for the brutal murders.

However was Ben really the killer ? Or is this a case of a difficult teenager being wrongly accused.

This book twists and turns all the way through and doubt is thrown on what happened at every opportunity leading you to suspect numerous characters in the book before what truly happened is shockingly revealed.

Another fantastic book.
