Gillian Flynn’s Bone-Chilling New Story: THE GROWNUP

Gillian Flynn, New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl, is back with a short story called The Grownup. The Grownup is a chilling  ghost story about a suburban family in a Gothic Victorian home.

The nameless narrator is a young grafter woman. She works at a spiritual shop—in front they provide women with psychic readings; in back, they provide pleasure to men. One day, a disheveled woman, Susan, enters the shop and asks for help. Her house may be haunted, and her unusual stepson may have sinister intentions. Intending to use Susan as a conduit to other wealthy women interested in psychic house calls, the narrator agrees to help.

Once the narrator begins visiting the family and the home, however, eerily disturbing events and stories unfold…and things are not necessarily as they seem.
