Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
Libby Day was the only survivor in the murders of her mother and two older sisters. Her older brother, Ben, was convicted of the murders and has been in prison for the last 24 years. Libby is surviving on the dregs of a trust that was started by well-wishers after the murders, when she meets Lyle, a member of "The Kill Club", a group who is convinced Ben is innocent of the murders. In exchange for a fee, Libby agrees to talk to the major players the day of the murders. Traveling to Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma, Libby is forced to relive that day and entertain the notion that Ben didn't kill his family.
