Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Exciting, witty, a masterpiece. Gillian Flynn writes with expertise. I kind of LOVE her. There is no mediocrity. Her stories are well researched and written in a way that grabs you and keeps you intertwined until the very last page. This is suspense personified. She writes the kind of books that you cannot talk about without giving the story away. That takes talent. Keep 'em coming Flynn. I'm addicted to you like a bad habit!
Camille Preaker is a cutter. Words such as cook, cupcake, and petticoat etched on her skin by her own hand. Her first carved word at the age of thirteen, WICKED. Carved with her mother's steak knife, across her pubic bone. Camille, a Chicago Daily Post reporter, is sent to investigate two gruesome killings in her hometown of Wind Gap, Missouri. Two young girls were killed nine months apart. One body was found in the creek, the other was wedged between a beauty parlor and a hardware store. The murderer removed both girl's teeth with a plier. Gruesome. As Camille works her way through the town interviewing reluctant neighbors and witnesses, she begins to identify with the victims and uncovers a truth that will send her into a tailspin.
