Looking for the next Gone Girl?

Book Cover

If you liked Gone Girl, you'll have to check out Peter Swanson's first novel The Girl with a Clock for a Heart. Judging by the reserve list, many of us loved Gone Girl and then told all of our friends that they had to read it too. The Girl with a Clock for a Heart has the same sort of edgy suspense, with lots of plot twists that will keep you compulsively turning the pages late into the night.

George Foss is a forty-year old man living an orderly, if rather uneventful, life. His one true love, Liana Decter, was his first girlfriend in college. After only one semester, she disappears under a cloud of suspicion and with a warrant out for her arrest. Twenty years later, Liana turns up in George's local bar and says she needs a favor. Instead of calling the police, George is drawn into Liana's complicated circumstances. Swanson skillfully steers the reader back and forth in time between their college days and the current action, keeping the reader speculating until the very last page.
