Product description


''Meg Gardiner is the next suspense superstar.'' -- Stephen King

''In the third Caitlin Hendrix thriller, following the terrific
UNSUB (2017) and Into the Black Nowhere (2018), a killer targets families Readers of the first two Hendrix novels won't be surprised to hear that the story in this suspenseful thriller is exquisitely constructed. No by-the-numbers thriller here; this one definitely lives up to its predecessors Gardiner is on a roll with this series, gathering fans with each installment like a snowball gathering mass as it rumbles down a hill.'' -- Booklist

''Meg Gardiner treats readers to her very
best work yet...I am so high on this book. Of all the 2020 titles i've read over the last 4-6 months, this is easily one of my favorites.'' -- The Real Book Spy

''Los Angeles may not have snow at Christmastime, but it's got the next best thing: a stone-cold serial killer who provides FBI behavioral analyst Caitlin Hendrix with her third, and perhaps most chilling, adversary...Gardiner has mastered the art of the serial-killer saga without an ounce of fat.'' --
Kirkus Reviews

''If you're looking for a
Criminal Minds fix or missing the initial thrill of Thomas Harris, I would urge you to seek Gardiner out.'' --CrimeReads

''Meg Gardiner has proven to be a writer who delivers. She gives thriller fans everything they want, in character, pace, and world building, presenting it all in a fresh way...
The Dark Corners of the Night is Meg Gardiner at her finest. She gives us a flawed heroine you can't help but root for, a villain both complex and undeniably evil, and a plot that constantly puts you on the edge. If she ups her game any more, we might not be able to survive.'' --MysteryPeople

''The story never slows down for a second.
The Dark Corners of the Night shows off Gardiner's impressive knowledge of behavioral analysis and all the technology, ballistics, and forensics that go into a modern-day pursuit of the baddest of the bad guys who are out there. It is a lesson in investigatory work and a master class in how to write a nail-biter of a suspense novel.'' --Bookreporter

''Gardiner weaves a suspenseful and horrifying tale that focuses on solving the crime rather than diving into gruesome and gratuitous details. Caitlin's expertise and background bring a strong emotional hook to the story line. As the pursuit escalates, so do the surprises, right up to the shocking last page. Gardiner's writing is lyrical and cinematic, and the final result is her best novel to date.'' --
Associated Press

''This book is all sorts of terrifying...If you're a fan of mysteries/thrillers, then I highly recommend reading these books.'' --
Shooting Stars Mag

''I could not put this book down. I have been hooked on the UNSUB series since I picked up the first book. This whole series is well written and chock full of suspense. Caitlin's character is brilliant as well as relatable as she deals with her flaws and struggles all while trying to stop serial killers. The physical toll it takes on her as she has to get inside the killers' heads to create a profile and try to catch them before they kill again is very insightful. I highly recommend this series and look forward to the next book as well as the planned TV series.'' --
Tulsa Book Review

''Haunting, scary, gritty,
The Dark Corners of the Night gave me goose bumps and made me check that the doors and windows where locked at night...Crime fans out there will love the originality and darkness of the story, the suspense that doesn't leave the pages, and the strong and human characters that drive the story. A brilliant and thrilling read not to miss!'' --Book After Book

''Gardiner's trademark breathless chase scenes are here. The conclusion will leave you haunted. As an extra treat for her fans, a surprise cameo appearance from Gardiner's previous series drops in. As a fan of all of Gardiner's work, this was a welcome treat.'' --
Florida Times-Union

''Brilliantly written. An unforgettable story. Stunning.'' --
Don Winslow

''This is a fantastic series of books by Edgar Award winner Meg Gardiner.'' --
Janet Evanovich, #1 New York Times bestselling author, on the UNSUB series

''Meg Gardiner's trademark strengths...characters as real as your friends, and a plot as real as your nightmares.'' --
Lee Child

''Gardiner makes ever one of her characters leap alive off the page.'' --
Jeffery Deaver

''Meg Gardiner is one of my favorite authors. She always delivers a terrific read.'' --
Karin Slaughter

''Meg Gardiner is an astonishing writer...I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.'' --
Tess Gerritsen --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
