UNSUB wins the Barry Award!

I’m absolutely delighted that UNSUB has won the 2018 Barry Award for Best Thriller. I’m proud of this book, and so happy that I could attend Bouchercon, where it was awarded.

Thanks to my publisher, Dutton; Jessica Renheim, who edited the novel; my stellar publicist Jamie Knapp; my agent Shane Salerno; and of course to Paul Shreve, for being the Husband, and putting up with everything that goes along with writing a novel and living with a novelist.

It was especially gratifying to be chosen from among such a stellar list of nominees. All the nominated novels are amazing. In particular, I was truly honored to be on this list with Thomas Perry’s The Old Man. Tom and his future wife Jo Perry were the editors for the first short story I ever published, in the UC Santa Barbara literary magazine. To have UNSUB nominated alongside his book means more than I can express.

And many thanks to Catriona McPherson for capturing my surprise.
