    Description

    The winner and nominee for many awards in the year that it was published, Dark Places is a mystery novel that tackles the underlying issues of domestic abuse, extreme poverty and struggles related to class in rural America.

    Summary Of The Book

    A horrific crime has been committed in Kinnakee, a rural town in Kansas, America. The protagonist, Libby Day, witnesses the gruesome murders of her mother and sisters, and somehow manages to escape the scene alive. As the sole survivor and witness to this terrible tragedy, her first-hand account of what happened on the day of the murders is of prime importance to this case. At the end of the trial, her own brother, a teenager at the time, is found guilty as a direct result of her testimony, and is sentenced away to prison for the crime.

    More than two decades later, the case catches the attention of a few people, who are convinced that the boy is innocent. They step forward to help exonerate him and start investigating this case on their own. Libby decides to join in and help them, and thus begins the hunt for the real killer, by narrowing down possible suspects and tracking down witnesses to a crime that was committed years ago. The burning question on the readers’ mind is the identity of the real criminal.

    Dark Places has an intriguing plot that often goes into flashback, as old incidents (seen through the eyes of Libby’s mother and brother) are recreated and brought to the fore, exposing the grim realities of spousal abuse, extreme poverty and class struggles.

    Shortlisted for the Crime Writers’ Association Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award, Dark Places has been rated as a Bestseller by the New York Times. It was also the Dark Scribe Magazine’s Editor’s Pick and subsequently their winner in the genre of dark novels in the year 2009.
    Plans are underway to make a feature film based on the book. Many established actresses were considered to play Libby Day’s role in the movie adaptation of the book Dark Places. Finally, Charlize Theron was chosen for the lead role (as on February, 2013).

    Engaging, Intelligent and an emotional ride

    After reading Gillian Flynn best seller Gone Girl, i purchased this book.
    This is a better read and is unpredictable till the end unlike Gone Girl which lost its steam during its last chapters.
    Story is about Libby whose family was brutally murdered when she was only 7 seven years old. Her brother was convicted of the crime and Libby testified against him. Now after 25 years of that incident Libby is approached by a cult who is interested in solving murder mysteries, that is when Libby becom...

    Awesome read

    Just finished reading the book... man what a novel. Feeling amazed and dazed at the same time.

    The book is not like the usual crime - mystery books; it goes into past and present every alternate chapters and keeps you guessing. Full of suspense and twists, it's a complete page turner and I am betting absolutely no one one would be able to predict the ending.

    A must read book for all the crime - thriller lovers out there!

    P.S: I loved its ending, its much much better then the Gone Girl :D

    Superb suspense

    Alright, I'm on page 287. Such a twisted tale this is! I have been reading it voraciously. During the cab ride home, in between stupid bugs in code at work, in the washroom... it is captivating and well written. Nothing is done overboard. The suspense, the character sketches... definite page turner. I'm just holding everything back to not turn to the final chapters and know who the hell massacred the Day family. Gone Girl was a tough act to live up to but Flynn did it with flying colors.
    I wo...

    Good book

    Its a good book to read. I would still go for Gone girl over this but, it had its share of thrill and suspense. Quality of the book is good too. And also the font.

    Morbid, disturbing and haunting!

    It's been 25 years since the "Farm-house Satan Sacrifice" and two and half decades since the then 7-year old lone survivor Libby Day fingered her brother Ben Day as the butcherer and murderer of her mother and two sisters. Libby has since been raised by a variety of people aunts, uncles, foster parents etc etc before finally being old enough to live by herself being assisted in no small measure by the donations made by others due to the intense publicity the case received. But now the money i...
