Reminder of where we are in the story:
On the day of their 5th wedding anniversary Nick comes home to discover his house in shambles and Amy is missing. The cops come and of course Nick is their primary suspect. Nick does not help things by his inappropriate responses to things, like the "murderous" smile he shows during an interview.
Amy has continued her tradition of leaving a scavenger hunt of clues for Nick on their anniversary. Nick has solved the first clue and is hiding from the police the fact that he knows where the second clue is sending him.
We are given a glimpse of the beginning of Nick and Amy's marriage and are given hints that things have been going downhill in recent years. Amy gives almost her entire inheritance to her parents even at the time when both her and Nick have been laid off. Then Nick finds out his mother has cancer and they will move to be closer to her.
Ideas for discussion:
1) How are you liking the book so far?
2) Any theories on what could have happened to Amy?
3) What do you think of the downward spiral of Amy and Nick's marriage?
