Product description

En un caluroso dia de verano, Amy y Nick se disponen a celebrar su quinto aniversario de bodas en North Carthage, a orillas del rio Mississippi. Pero Amy desaparece esa misma manana sin dejar rastro. A medida que la investigacion policial avanza, las sospechas recaen sobre Nick. Sin embargo, Nick insiste en su inocencia. Es cierto que se muestra extranamente evasivo y frio, pero es un asesino? "Perdida" arranca como todo buen thriller que se precie: una mujer desaparecida, una investigacion policial... Pero "Perdida" es mucho mas.. Es una obra maestra. Un thriller psicologico brillante con una trama tan apasionante y giros tan inesperados que es absolutamente imposible parar de leer. "Perdida" es tambien una novela sobre el lado mas oscuro del matrimonio, sobre los enganos, las decepciones, la obsesion, el miedo. Una radiografia completamente actual de los medios de comunicacion y su capacidad para modelar la opinion publica. Pero sobre todo, es la historia de amor de dos personas perdidamente enamoradas.

Review quote

"Readers who prefer more virulent strains of unreality will appreciate the sneaky mind games of Gillian Flynn's "Gone Girl," a thriller rooted in the portrait of a tricky and troubled marriage." --"New York Times" "In this fast-paced thriller, Flynn tracks the disintegration of a marriage and asks: How does a couple go from uttering passionate vows to living separate lives?" --"All You" "A perfect wife's disappearance plunges her husband into a nightmare as it rips open ugly secrets about his marriage and, just maybe, his culpability in her death... One of those rare thrillers whose revelations actually intensify its suspense instead of dissipating it. The final pages are chilling." --"Kirkus "(starred review) "[W]hat looks like a straightforward case of a husband killing his wife to free himself from a bad marriage morphs into something entirely different in Flynn's hands. As evidenced by her previous work ("Sharp Objects," 2006, and "Dark Places," 2009), she possesses a disturbing worldview, one considerably amped up by her twisted sense of humor. Both a compelling thriller and a searing portrait of marriage, this could well be Flynn's breakout novel. It contains so many twists and turns that the outcome is impossible to predict." --"Booklist "(starred review) "Flynn cements her place among that elite group of mystery/thriller writers who unfailingly deliver the goods...Once again Flynn has written an intelligent, gripping tour de force, mixing a riveting plot and psychological intrigue with a compelling prose style that unobtrusively yet forcefully carries the reader from page to page." --"Library Journal "(starred review) "Flynn masterfully lets this tale of a marriage gone toxically wrong gradually emerge through alternating accounts by Nick and Amy, both unreliable narrators in their own ways. The reader comes to discover their layers of deceit through a process similar to that at work in the imploding relationship. Compulsiv
