Publisher's Summary

Libby Day was just seven years old when her older brother massacred her family while she hid in a cupboard. Her evidence helped put him away. Ever since then she has been drifting, surviving for over 20 years on the proceeds of the 'Libby Day fund'. But now the money is running out and Libby is desperate.

When she is offered $500 to do a guest appearance, she feels she has to accept. But this is no ordinary gathering. The Kill Club is a group of true-crime obsessives who share information on notorious murders, and they think her brother Ben is innocent. Ben was a social misfit, ground down by the small-town farming community in which he lived. But he did have a girlfriend - a brooding heavy metal fan called Diondra. Through her, Ben became involved with drugs and the dark arts. When the town suddenly turned against him, his thoughts turned black. But was he capable of murder?

Libby must delve into her family's past to uncover the truth - no matter how painful.

    Interesting characters, which have depth and a plot that keeps you guessing. Looking forward to the next Gillian Flynn book.

    "Slow With a twist!"

    I found this book to be very slow to begin with, not picking up pace until about 3 hours left of listening time. I found that there was a lot of unnecessary foul language, wasn't keen on the satanic references either, a bit unsettling, but there was definitely a twist at the end! Worth me sticking with this book to the end, almost didn't! Sharp Objects was definitely a better more enjoyable listen for me by far!

    "Another success"

    Ascerbic throughout. Certainly as good or if not better than Gone Girl. A good read. Will look out for more by this author.

    "Excellent and imaginative but......"

    Kept me guessing to the end. This author has an amazing imagination. Very good story line. However, the descriptions are sometimes very gory and the language is bad ( and in my view unnecessary and made me uncomfortable). Blood and guts: fine. Extremely bad language in a Book: not acceptable.

    "prepare to be scared"
    Where does Dark Places rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's the best. Absolutely loved this book. It's terrifying and has you hooked. Way way better than Gone Girl. The narrator is awesome. The characters are not people you'd want to befriend but they seem real, flawed, messed up but with just enough good that you remain on their side despite your conflicting views on them. The story is imaginative without being ridiculous - or maybe it's just the way the story plays out. It was one of them that when it ended I felt sad!


    Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favourite?

    She did them all superbly.
