Camille, self-described 'white trash from old money', is the daughter of one of the richest families in town. Long-haunted by a childhood tragedy and estranged from her mother for years, Camille suddenly finds herself installed once again in her family's Victorian mansion, reacquainting herself with her distant mother and the half-sister she barely knows, a precocious 13-year-old who holds a disquieting grip on the town and surrounds herself with a group of vampish teenage girls. As Camille struggles to remain detached from the evidence, her relationship with her neurotic, hypochondriac mother threatens to topple her hard-won mental stability. Working alongside the police chief and a special agent from out of town, Camille tries to uncover the mystery of who killed these little girls and why. But there are deeper psychological puzzles: Why does Camille identify so strongly with the dead girls? And how is this connected to the death of another sister years earlier?Hide synopsis

Talk about suspense - of course, you (the reader) will wanna know who did it ... just wait 'til you find out why! The story gets pretty intense, especially when Camille reveals her self-mutilation background. I can't wait to see what Ms. Flynn has in store next!
As you would expect from any book with a razorblade on its cover, Sharp Objects is very dark and angsty. Exactly how I like my books. Camille Preaker is a woman with a past. Employed as a newspaper reporter, her boss gets wind of two related murders in her home town and sends her in for the scoop. But there?s a reason Camille no longer lives in her hometown. She shows up and begins to work the scene, becoming too close to both the main suspect and the lead investigator. But there?s more going on than meets the eye. Could someone in Camille?s family be involved? Will Camille have the strength to see it through? Flynn has created a family dynamic that is rivoting. I was literally unable to put it down and read it all in one sitting. I didn't give it 5 stars because there were a few moments when I felt a little disbelief. Overall, a good read. I enjoyed it.
