It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

Wish I had read it when it was first published. Enthralling to the very end.

Normally I love when the author reads the book themselves. However, in this case, I feel like the book would have been better if a different narrator would have been used. The awkward pauses and the droll voice almost put me to sleep. It made this book very difficult to get through.
