Nick and Amy Dunne seem to have a fairly decent marriage, although they face many of the same challenges that other marriages face...lack of communication, aging parents, job loss. But on their 5th wedding anniversary, Amy vanishes. When Nick comes home from work, his house is a wreck and there is no sign of her. He calls the police and thus starts the search for his missing wife...with him as the chief suspect. But all is not as it seems. When the police find Amy's diary, everything in it points to Nick as her murderer. Nick knows he didn't do it, but how will he prove it?This book features one of the most dysfunctional marriages ever. Nick and Amy's marriage not only isn't perfect, it's full of secrets and lies and deceptions. Just when you think you know what's going to happen, everything changes. The plot is full of twists and turns and I never would have guessed the ending. Neither Nick nor Amy are likable characters, but the plot is so clever it won't matter.
