Dark Places

A Novel

(1)
I have a meanness inside me, real as an organ. Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas." As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived - and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.
The Kill Club is a macabre secret society obsessed with notorious crimes. When they locate Libby and pump her for details-proof they hope may free Ben-Libby hatches a plan to profit off her tragic history. For a fee, she'll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club . . . and maybe she'll admit her testimony wasn't so solid after all.
As Libby's search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the narrative flashes back to January 2, 1985. The events of that day are relayed through the eyes of Libby's doomed family members-including Ben, a loner whose rage over his shiftless father and their failing farm have driven him into a disturbing friendship with the new girl in town. Piece by piece, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started-on the run from a killer.

Split across two decades as the sole surviving daughter of a home invasion/massacre sets out to uncover the truth of what really happened on the fateful night when her family farm was the scene of a terrifying bloodbath. The book contrasts her discoveries in the present day with accounts of the events leading up to the killings from the perspectives of her mother and brother. As each piece of the puzzle slots into place, the reader is forced to question every revelation and determine how this impacts upon the truths that are being slowly revealed. Masterfully written with pitch-perfect dialogue, an intriguing and engrossing structure and shocks and twists aplenty, this is a great mystery/crime novel.
