Gone Girl

Each month, we’ll explore a different destination, and a lucky Silver Travel Book Club reader can win a free copy of the month’s book.

Avalon WaterwaysThis month the Silver Travel Book Club – proudly sponsored by Avalon Waterways – is reading 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. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favours 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. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media – as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents – the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behaviour. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter – but is he really a killer?


Avalon Waterways

She’s known for her runaway hits – Gone Girl, Sharp Objects and Dark Places – and now, Gillian Flynn is inviting you to run away to the Danube River. To hear about her twisted narratives while you wind and bend your way through craggy cliffs, terraced vineyards and culture-rich villages from Budapest to Prague, discovering the Old World in new ways. It’s a killer opportunity to spend a week sailing on a Suite Ship with the ‘Killer Queen’. ‘Come Sail Away with Gillian Flynn’ is an 8-day river cruise from Budapest to Deggendorf, departing 15 September 2022.
