“We serial killers are your sons, we are your husbands, we are everywhere.”
Obviously serial killer thrillers are hot stuff right now; it’s become near impossible for anyone to get away with the criteria and multiple murders required to be classified as such with technology advancing as it is. This has developed into the best of both worlds- we see the scum getting taken off the streets and our inner curious drama queen gets to experience what used to be a real fear and ...more
Meg Gardiner, Meg Gardiner, Meg Gardiner...you SLAY me! Reading UNSUB a month or two ago just blew me away, and here you are again, with another heart-pounding, completely riveting novel featuring FBI profiler Caitlin Hendrix. What an amazing series this is turning out to be!!
In a little town called Solace, Texas, women are literally disappearing on Saturday nights. One moment they're there—on a concession line at a movie theater, in a mall parking lot, in their car stopped at a railroad
So darn good! If this book doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what will.
Caitlin Hendrix is back at it. This time, as an FBI Profiler tracking the Saturday Night Killer in Austin, Texas. Women keep disappearing. At first, from public places: the movie theatre, her car and then from home. Imagining it makes shivers run down my spine. Tracking the killer, Caitlin and her team locate several of the victims bodies, in clean, cutesy, white baby doll nightgowns. One is surrounded ...more
Let's be clear. I'm from Texas and my boot heel was clickin' on the floor faster than an ol' oil rig pumpin' up black crude. This one's set just outside of Austin. Too close for comfort.....
Meg Gardiner pulls this story away from the curb right out of Chapter One. Young women are disappearing in South Texas, especially on Saturday nights. An exhausted new mother stumbles half-asleep into the hallway in answer to her baby's cries in the middle of the night. But the ...more

After I read UNSUB this past fall, I knew that I immediately had to click onto Amazon and pre-order Into the Black Nowhere . I knew it was being released on January 23rd, but I just couldn't wait any longer. I would check Amazon's order menu in hopes that they screwed up and issued me a copy before the ...more
Caitlin now an FBI profiler in training is on the case for a killer that turns into a cat and mouse game. The dynamics here between Caitlin and the killer is tense, interesting and engaging. Caitlin in more vulnerable and pushes herself as ...more
This was set in my world.
Except, there was a serial killer in my world, so maybe I shouldn't be so excited about that.
Unless he has a room made of candy, then I'd be willing to overlook a few things...
This is the second book in the series, and so it assumes you know the characters and takes off running with some pretty twisted dude killing women with blonde hair.
Not in this book.
You know how you will read a ...more
OKAY, FIRST OF-FUCKING-ALL: YASSS Queen YAS!
And second: I’m so depressed this is over.
I’m not religious, but over this Easter weekend I’ve decided I worship at the printing press of Meg Gardiner. And her books are my bible.
If you’re interested in my new religion, let me know. Maybe I’ll make some pamphlets.
I’m completely blown away by this instalment in the UNSUB series. I think I literally peed my pants over the first one, and it seemed a completely impossible task that ...more

This book was amazing... well-written, fast-paced, fantastic storyline and characters. I loved every minute reading it! If you enjoy the tv show Criminal Minds you will definitely love this book... has the same vibe to it. I'm already looking forward to the next book in the series! Highly recommend!
*I want to thank NetGalley and PENGUIN GROUP Dutton for the ARC!

I really enjoyed this book! I was a huge fan of the first book in this series, UNSUB, so I was really excited to read this one. I will admit that I didn't like this book quite as much as the first book in the series but it was a very strong book. I was hooked by this book from the very start and enjoyed it to the very end. This series has quickly made its way onto my must read list.
Caitlin is now working as an FBI profiler. She goes ...more
It didnot disappoint.
Meg Gardiner does it again with this equally brilliant and captivating sequel in which Caitlin Hendrix returns, this time as a fresh ...more

Caitlin is working with a legendary FBI profiler C.J. Emmerich and ten-year veteran Brianne Rainey on the abductions of women in the Gideon County of Texas.
I enjoyed all the characterization with Emmerich and Rainey. They really added to the overall plot and I hope to see more ...more
Fans will enjoy this newest installment, book number two of the UNSUB series. Into the Black Nowhere by Meg Gardiner is a great nail-biting thriller and I enjoyed every minute of it.
My favorite character was Caitlin Hendrix, a member of the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit. She is a smart tough agent but is realistic when she shows some weakness also. The killer in this novel was so good at reading and manipulating people...more
Now, without giving away any plot points or information (because I absolutely consider Unsub to be a MUST ...more
The action moves quickly throughout and the heroine-villain scene at the end is so gripping readers (or at least fellow writers) will appreciate the effort it took Ms. Gardiner to think through and block out/map out the action.

A serial killer is hunting, controlling and killing women. FBI agent, Caitlin Hendrix must stop him.
Meg Gardiner is proficient with the technical details of FBI profiling and tracking.
She gives us a very compelling female character, a horrifying villain and intense plot twists.
A Must Read!
“Her pulse pounded in her forehead. ‘And I’d slip under the surface of a warm bath. Into floating darkness. It would be like...’ Her voice grew soft. ‘Like falling through a field of stars, into the black nowhere.”
Caitlin Hendrix is a rookie FBI agent that is now a profiler for the Behavioral Science Unit. She is in a small town in Texas, far away from the familiarity ...more
This had a fairly slow build up to what became a F1 Grand Prix finish.
If you like your villains to be completely vile, then this is the book for you. This villain is the quintessential smiling assassin. Good looking with the kind of sex appeal that most women can’t ignore.
As a thriller it ticks all the boxes but a lot of the characters fell short of the mark for me. I found that the FBI agents were just a bit too back and white, all business with no cracks in their ...more
Into the Black Nowhere picks up shortly after UNSUB leaves off. Caitlin has relocated to Virginia for her new job as a criminal profiler for the FBI, and is pretty quickly ...more
