I’m absolutely delighted that The Real Book Spy has included Into the Black Nowhere on his list of the Best Thrillers of 2018: “Meg Gardiner continued her scary-good series (after last year’s UNSUB), a must-read for those craving nail-biting suspense.”

Happy New Year! 2018 kicks off for me with the paperback edition of UNSUB, published today.

I’m delighted that the novel has been so well received by readers — thank you! You’re the reason I write. Without you, my career wouldn’t be possible.

And I’ve been thrilled that UNSUB landed on a bunch of year-end Best Of lists:

I’m honored — and happy on behalf of the novel. It’s like seeing one of my kids bring home a science fair ribbon. I’m really grateful.
