I have a meanness inside me, real as an organ.
Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in âThe Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas.â As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survivedâand famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers whoâve long forgotten her.
The Kill Club is a macabre secret society obsessed with notorious crimes. When they locate Libby and pump her for detailsâproof they hope may free BenâLibby hatches a plan to profit off her tragic history. For a fee, sheâll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club . . . and maybe sheâll admit her testimony wasnât so solid after all.
As Libbyâs search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the narrative flashes back to January 2, 1985. The events of that day are relayed through the eyes of Libbyâs doomed family membersâincluding Ben, a loner whose rage over his shiftless father and their failing farm have driven him into a disturbing friendship with the new girl in town. Piece by piece, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she startedâon the run from a killer.
