Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl is a toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose resulting in a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds readers at every turn. When his wife disappears on their anniversary, Nick starts having cringe-worthy daydreams and becomes oddly evasive, eschewing his golden boy past in this bestselling novel. Reserve it.
