The Grownup by Gillian Flynn


This short story follows a con artist who makes her living by learning how to read people- working both as a sex worker and a psychic!

She comes across what she thinks is an easy mark (Susan Burke) and takes a job in an eerie Victorian mansion. When she accompanies the highly strung owner to the creepy Victorian mansion that seems to be the source of her troubles, she comes to believe that there’s more to the problem than she first thought.

Is the mansion actually haunted-and what does the disturbing stepson Miles have to do with it?

The book is 64 pages long….. yet despite being so short the author squeezes constant twists and turns into it.

Not quite a horror story-but definitely worth a read!
