The cast includes Patricia Clarkson, Chris Messina, Eliza Scanlen, Elizabeth Perkins, Matt Craven, Henry Czerny, Taylor John Smith, Madison Davenport, and It star Sophia Lillis, playing Adams' character when she was younger (that's pretty good casting). Trying to move past her own personal traumas, she dives headlong into investigating the murder of two children.

The book itself spent more than 70 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list, won two of Britain's Dagger Awards and was shortlisted for an Edgar Award, reports Deadline. Combine those scares with what is undoubtedly going to feature a lot of emotionally challenging moments based on an already strong story and you have the recipe for success yet again for HBO. As she puts together a psychological puzzle from her past, she slowly starts identifying with the victims a bit too closely. It's a horror-filled homecoming, one Camille may not survive. Adams is a great actress, and I'm very curious to see her take on a much darker role. Jean-Marc Vallée (Big Little Lies) directed the series with Marti Noxon (Mad Men) serving as showrunner.

This is Flynn's third murder-mystery novel to be adapted for the screen. The source material is written by Gillian Flynn, who, as you probably know, created Gone Girl.
