Gone Girl Synopsis

Winner of the Specsavers International Author of the Year 2013.

'What are you thinking, Amy?' The question I've asked most often during our marriage, if not out loud, if not to the person who could answer.



I suppose these questions stormcloud over every marriage: 'What are you thinking? How are you feeling? Who are you? What have we done to each other? What will we do?' Just how well can you ever know the person you love? This is the question that Nick Dunne must ask himself on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police immediately suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they aren't his. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone.

Gillian Flynn Press Reviews

'An utterly gripping thriller' Emerald Street


'Gone Girl should be the big poolside read this year. Fresh out om paperback, it's a page-turning abduction mystery with an awful lot of twists.' Mail on Sunday


'A tautly written thriller about the unravelling of a marriage that is deservedly topping the bestseller charts.' The Observer


'The story of a husband searching for his vanished wife has everything - psychological acuity, humour, an unflagging pace and more twists than you could hope for in your most serpentine dreams...a sumptuous, satisfying read.' Stylist


'The story-telling is incredibly compelling, with the cunning opening mystery soon turning down unpredictable routes, while the characters are superbly believable. No wonder it's the book that everyone seems to be reading.' -- Boyd Hilton Heat Magazine


'If you haven't yet caught up with this word-of-mouth bestseller - about a woman's mysterious disappearance and the secrets she and her husband are keeping - get hold of it soon. It really does live up to the hype.' Woman Magazine


'I'm currently reading Gone Girl, a brilliant novel about how we never quite know the people we fall in love with. It's one of those novels that you discuss endlessly with your closest friends. Sharleen Spiteri, lead singer in Texas This thriller is the must-read of the year.' The Sun

Gillian Flynn was born in Kansas City, Missouri to two community-college professors—her mother taught reading; her father, film.
