Publisher's Summary

WICKED above her hipbone, GIRL across her heart
Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker's troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, Camille's first assignment from the second-rate daily paper where she works brings her reluctantly back to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.

NASTY on her kneecap, BABYDOLL on her leg
Since she left town eight years ago, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful 13-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed again in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille is haunted by the childhood tragedy she has spent her whole life trying to cut from her memory.

HARMFUL on her wrist, WHORE on her ankle
As Camille works to uncover the truth about these violent crimes, she finds herself identifying with the young victims a bit too strongly. Clues keep leading to dead ends, forcing Camille to unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past to get at the story. Dogged by her own demons, she will have to confront what happened to her years before if she wants to survive this homecoming.

With its taut, well-crafted writing, Sharp Objects is addictive, haunting, and unforgettable.

What the Critics Say

  • Mystery Writers of America 2007 Edgar Nominee, Best First Novel by an American Author

"A witty, stylish, and compelling debut. A real winner." (Harlan Coben)
"Flynn delivers a great whodunit....Piercingly effective and genuinely terrifying." (Kirkus Reviews)
"To say this is a terrific debut novel is really too mild. I haven't read such a relentlessly creepy family saga since John Farris' All Heads Turn as the Hunt Goes By, and that was 30 years ago, give or take. Sharp Objects isn't one of those scare-and-retreat books; its effect is cumulative. I found myself dreading the last 30 pages or so but was helpless to stop turning them. Then, after the lights were out, the story just stayed there in my head, coiled and hissing, like a snake in a cave. An admirably nasty piece of work, elevated by sharp writing and sharper insights." (Stephen King)

    Story
    "Does it run in the family? - Thrilling!"
    What did you love best about Sharp Objects?

    I enjoyed the complex story and character development. Each character had depth and a reality that was chilling.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked it for allowing the women to be the villains both twisted and clever.


    What does Ann Marie Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I found her voice helped bring the characters to life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The women did it.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this story because it went away from the usual.

    "This book gets a WTF!"

    I was sure I knew who did it and I was right but it was still surprising. The reader didn't sound like someone from the Midwest. That is the only bad thing I have to say.

    Story
    "Disturbing..."

    I have read many of Gillian Flynn's books. and this is the second book I've listened too. Thid book was erraly disturbing and I really didn't enjoy it because it was so graffic. But it foes keep you pulled in to the story. I always feel it a book starts out with a mother and daughter's relationship in turmoil , there's got to be a reason why. Especially as turmuluous as their!!

    "Not much"

    A great plot for Hitchcock, but not for
    a book- too many different themes that never connected for me.
