At BookExpo America last week, my publisher, Blackstone, announced my upcoming novel in exciting fashion. That’s me, standing next to a banner at the entrance to the convention, at the Javits Center in New York City.
The Dark Corners of the Night is the third novel in the UNSUB series, featuring FBI agent Caitlin Hendrix. It will be published in early 2020. I’ll have plenty more to tell you about it in the coming months. For now, know that I’m thrilled you’ll be reading it next winter.
I’m excited that this week I’ll be attending BookExpo America and its fan cousin, BookCon. Both will take place at the Javits Center in New York City.
If any of you are in the NYC area, I’d love to see you there!

I had a great time on Saturday interviewing Harlan Coben at Murder by the Book in Houston. Despite Harlan having one flight canceled and a second delayed by severe weather across the region, readers waited, packing the bookstore, until he arrived. Harlan didn’t even have time to catch his breath before we launched into a discussion of his new novel, Run Away. But he’s a pro, and a champ, and a great person, and the evening was fantastic.
My kind of Saturday night.
This Saturday, April 6th, I have the privilege of interviewing Harlan Coben about his new novel, Run Away. If you’re in the Houston area, come out to Murder by the Book and join us.

I’m delighted that Into the Black Nowhere is getting so much book love. It’s my baby, and I’m proud of it. So I get a warm feeling when others add it to their Best-Of lists.

“Gardiner’s second book to feature Caitlin Hendrix has the newly minted FBI agent chasing down a charming, Ted Bundy-type killer who operates along I-35. Meg truly brings the creepy to this one.”
Aw, thanks. I try.
