Description
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER &; Gillian Flynn&;s Edgar Award-winning homage to the classic ghost story, published for the first time as a standalone.A canny young woman is struggling to survive by perpetrating various levels of mostly harmless fraud. On a rainy April morning, she is reading auras at Spiritual Palms when Susan Burke walks in. A keen observer of human behavior, our unnamed narrator immediately diagnoses beautiful, rich Susan as an unhappy woman eager to give her lovely life a drama injection. However, when the "psychic" visits the eerie Victorian home that has been the source of Susan&;s terror and grief, she realizes she may not have to pretend to believe in ghosts anymore. Miles, Susan&;s teenage stepson, doesn&;t help matters with his disturbing manner and grisly imagination. The three are soon locked in a chilling battle to discover where the evil truly lurks and what, if anything, can be done to escape it. &;The Grownup,&; which originally appeared as &;What Do You Do?&; in George R. R. Martin&;s Rogues anthology, proves once again that Gillian Flynn is one of the world&;s most original and skilled voices in fiction.
