Publisher's Summary

“Don’t miss it. This is a great one!” (Stephen King)

Soon to be an Amazon TV series

I am the legion of the night....

He appears in the darkness like a ghost, made of shadows and fear - the Midnight Man. He comes for the parents but leaves the children alive, tiny witnesses to unspeakable horror. The bedroom communities of Los Angeles are gripped with dread, and the attacks are escalating.

Still reeling from her best friend's close call in a bombing six months ago, FBI behavioral analyst Caitlin Hendrix has come to Los Angeles to assist in the Midnight Man investigation and do what she does best - hunt a serial killer. Her work is what keeps her going, but something about this UNSUB - unknown subject - doesn't sit right. She soon realizes that this case will test not only her skills but also her dedication, for within the heart of a killer lives a secret that mirrors Caitlin's own past. Hesitancy is not an option, but will she be able to do what must be done if the time comes?

Tense and impactful, Edgar Award winner Meg Gardiner's latest UNSUB thriller will leave you on the edge of your seat until its riveting conclusion.

Critic Reviews

“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

Good Suspense...

Good book. Good series. Excellent narration. I hope this is bland enough for Audible. They still haven’t posted my last from three days ago and took two other older reviews down. Go figure.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Librarians of the world thank you for your dedication : -) And thanks for this better than average thriller. The opening was good as the spectre of a
very odd killer starts tingles slipping up and down the spine of our Special Agent. Mixing the FBI with a forensic psychiatrist added
a lot to this investigation. The obligatory cars chasing scene was the best I've heard - with the fascinating sub-car terror plot our author drops us in. Just listen, you'll feel your own spine
tingling. No gross blood & guts
here jusr lots of thrills.

Horrific narration in this book

Could not get past chapter nine. The narrator destroyed the feeling of the book. She did good on the first book but don’t waste your money. Read it yourself

Babble

Too much psycho babble! The story would have been much better with fewer forced adjectives.

Snooze Fest

The first book in this series was fantastic. Criminal Minds meets Dan Brown. Second book was good, but started to drag. Now, she's just writing episodes for the TV series. This will probably be great as a 60min episode, but a full book? No. I found myself nodding off and daydreaming more often than not. I got to a point where I just wanted it to be over. Long, dull, and far from original.

Terrible reader

This book could have been great if it wasn’t for the reader! It was a struggle to finish.

It’s was ok I guess

I was honestly let down a little. I imagine I expected more from the story line. It’s law & order meets criminal minds with out Elliot stabler. It was jus ok.

CSI?

Couldn't bear it. Basic TV fodder and the reader raked my nerves. Avoid it at all cost!

Well read but..

I enjoyed the narration but found the story preposterous and clunky. This is just my opinion, I have no doubt millions will love it.

Great Story !

Loved the book, found the narrator difficult at times. The story needed a stronger less robotic narration
