The sickness struck everyone sixteen and over. Mothers and fathers,
older brothers, sisters, and best friends. No one escaped its touch. And
now children across London are being hunted by ferocious grown-ups who
are hungry, bloodthirsty, and not giving up. DogNut and the rest of his
crew, in search of the friends they lost during the fire, set off on a
deadly mission from the Tower of London to Buckingham Palace and beyond,
as the sickos lie in wait. But who are their friends and who is the
enemy in this changed world?
"When I think of my wife, I always think of her head. The shape of it, to begin with."-Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and
Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and
reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife
disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River.
Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with
cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head,
but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could
have put anyone dangerously on edge.
