In honor of the 10th anniversary of Gone Girl, author Gillian Flynn is hosting book signings and a Q&A on an eight-day cruise on the Danube River.
Flynn’s 2012 novel follows the mysterious disappearance of Amy Dunne and the clues that lead the police to believe her husband, Nick, was somehow involved in it. Gone Girl was a New York Times bestseller and was made into a movie starring Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck in 2014.
Symone reflects on the epic year she's had since winning "RuPaul's Drag Race":
The Avalon Waterways cruise will host 150 passengers who are willing and able to shell out $3,400 for a ticket. The “killer opportunity” will go from Sept. 15-22 and visit spots between Budapest, Hungary, and Deggendorf, Germany.
Gone Girl takes place in Missouri, so it’s not clear why Avalon Waterways chose this path. Avalon also has a number of themed cruises within its Storyteller Series — including a Sex and the City-themed one starting in Paris and a Cheryl Strayed one on the same course as the Gone Girl cruise.
It seems as though Flynn is on to the joke that this is an unusual theme for a cruise, as she tweeted that there would also be a “special passenger to murder.”
I should add that I will be selecting both by raffle and by means and opportunity a special passenger to murder!

Twitter users, naturally, lost their minds over the concept of a Gone Girl cruise.

Huh, that's weird, my wife has been missing and all of a sudden I find an all-expenses paid ticket to the Gone Girl Cruise bought with a new credit card registered to me. Oh well, it'll be good to take my mind off of things. https://t.co/RVqneBBF4c

If you're doing the Gone Girl cruise, please do it properly: vanish on the second night, leaving a hastily cleaned up crime scene and an incriminating journal.
