They hope to discover proof that may free Ben. The story, alternating between the murders and the present, has a tense momentum that works beautifully. The sleuth in her equally disturbing and original second novel is Libby Day It's Flynn's gift that she can make a caustic, self-loathing, unpleasant protagonist someone you come to root for. I would rather read her than just about any other crime writer. Dark Places demonstrates that was no fluke.
Like Kate Atkinson, Flynn has figured out how to fuse the believable characters, silken prose and complex moral vision of literary fiction to the structure of a crime story. You can sense trouble coming like a storm moving over the prairie, but can't quite detect its shape. The Kansas in these pages is a bleak, deterministic place where bad blood and lies generate horrifically unintended consequences.
More than 40 years ago, Truman Capote took readers inside the Clutter farmhouse in Holcomb, KS, to show them what it was like to walk in a killer's shoes. Flynn takes modern readers back to Kansas to explore the fictional Day family massacre from the perspective of a survivor as well as the suspects. I have a meanness inside me, real as an organ. Slit me at my belly and it might slide out, meaty and dark, drop on the floor so you could stomp on it. I was never a good little girl, and I got worse after the murders.
Little Orphan Libby grew up sullen and boneless, shuffled around a group of lesser relatives—second cousins and great-aunts and friends of friends—stuck in a series of mobile homes or rotting ranch houses all across Kansas. Shirts with mustardy armpits.
Pants with baggy bottoms, comically loose, held on with a raggedy belt cinched to the farthest hole. In class photos my hair was always crooked—barrettes hanging loosely from strands, as if they were airborne objects caught in the tangles—and I always had bulging pockets under my eyes, drunk-landlady eyes.
Maybe a grudging curve of the lips where a smile should be. It was miserable, wet-bone March and I was lying in bed thinking about killing myself, a hobby of mine. Indulgent afternoon daydreaming: A shotgun, my mouth, a bang and my head jerking once, twice, blood on the wall. Spatter, splatter. Coffee goes great with sudden death.
I am, I guess, depressed. But the meanness usually wins out.
My brother slaughtered my family when I was seven. My mom, two sisters, gone: Whenever I hear that phrase, and I hear it a lot, I picture juicy doodle-hearts, complete with bird-wings, flapping toward one of my many crap-ass childhood homes, my little-girl self at the window, waving and grabbing each bright heart, green cash sprinkling down on me, thanks, thanks a ton!
When I was still a kid, the donations were placed in a conservatively managed bank account, which, back in the day, saw a jump about every three—four years, when some magazine or news station ran an update on me.
Me, still miniature, my face aglow with birthday candles, my shirt too tight over breasts that had gone D-cup that year, comic-book sized on my tiny frame, ridiculous, porny. I had a meeting that afternoon to determine exactly how gone. Be polite, but barely, and get it over with. Single-word answers, tired sighs. The one thing I suspected about Jim Jeffreys was that he must be Christian, churchy—he had the patience and optimism of someone who thought Jesus was watching.
And here again came the meanness: That Jamie Whatever was out at some mall with my cash, buying fancy handbags and jewelry and buttery department-store makeup to smooth onto her shiny, scarred face. Which was a horrible thing to think, of course. I at least knew that.
Finally, finally, finally I pulled myself out of bed with a stage- effect groan and wandered to the front of my house. I rent a small brick bungalow within a loop of other small brick bungalows, all of which squat on a massive bluff overlooking the former stockyards of Kansas City. A weird, subprime area, full of dead ends and dog crap.
The old people sit, gray and pudding-like, behind screen windows, peering out at all hours. Sometimes they walk to their cars on careful elderly tiptoes that make me feel guilty, like I should go help. They are not friendly old people—they are tight-lipped, pissed-off old people who do not appreciate me being their neighbor, this new person. The whole area hums with their disapproval.
They march, penguin-style, past my house every morning, but I have not once seen them return. For all I know, they troddle around the entire world and return in time to pass my window again in the morning. Whatever the story, I am attached to them. The Anti-Cool Girl.
