    Containing not only Gone Girl - the worldwide bestseller that was adapted into a hit film directed by David Fincher and starring Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck - but also two lesser-known but equally compelling and impressive novels, this three-book collection from Gillian Flynn is full of unbelievable twists and turns.

    One of the most talked-about books of recent years, Gone Girl is the story of Nick and Amy Dunne - an unhappily married couple... Their tumultuous relationship has seen many ups and downs - but when Amy goes missing and Nick is the prime suspect for her murder, things take a deliciously twisted and dark turn. You won't know who to believe and what to expect next in this stylish psychological thriller.

    Gillian Flynn's two previous novels - Dark Places, a mystery that takes in everything from class issues in rural America to satanic cults; and Sharp Objects, a story that follows journalist Camille Preaker as she heads back to her hometown to investigate a series of brutal murders - are also included.

    We guarantee you'll be hooked by all three books and won't be able to put them down!
