If you’re a mystery lover, like Ms. Gregory, here’s a thriller (and her Faculty Favorite) to put at the top of your reading list: Dark Places by Gillian Flynn.
“I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s my favorite book but it’s one I’ve read recently that I enjoyed!” says Ms. Gregory. “I love suspense books and films and things that make you think. This was a page turner and I was dying to know what happened. It is also by the same author as Gone Girl so if you enjoyed that book I would recommend this one! It kept me guessing the whole time and I was really surprised how everything ended up being resolved.”

Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice” of Kinnakee, Kansas. She survived—and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club—a secret secret society obsessed with notorious crimes—locates Libby and pumps her for details. They hope to discover proof that may free Ben. Libby hopes to turn a profit off her tragic history: She’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club—for a fee. As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started—on the run from a killer.
