    UNSUB, which is the first book in this outstanding series made my Best of 2017 list and while I was ecstatic to get my hands on the follow up novel, I was also nervous. When the first book in a series is as fantastic as UNSUB was I can’t help but be worried that the next won’t measure up, but rest assured this one was just as gripping, terrifying and all around amazing!

    UNSUB, which is the first book in this outstanding series made my Best of 2017 list and while I was ecstatic to get my hands on the follow up novel, I was also nervous. When the first book in a series is as fantastic as UNSUB was I can’t help but be worried that the next won’t measure up, but rest assured this one was just as gripping, terrifying and all around amazing! Meg Gardiner is a master and I’ll follow this series as long as she keeps writing it.

    I love that Caitlin is a full fledged profiler this time around, this picks up not long after the first book ended and the new FBI agent is raring to go. The case Caitlin and her team are working on is inspired by Ted Bundy and I have to say, it made for some chilling reading. This was once again diligently plotted and achieved brilliantly so I’ll be steering clear of the details that made this so superb. But suffice it to say that the intensity is at an all time high and I think my heart was in my throat for the majority.

    I loved learning more about Caitlin as well as being introduced to her new coworkers as they were all very intriguing and I predict they’ll be much to explore as the series continues. Gardiner sets things up absolutely perfectly for the next book and I have no doubt that it’ll be another nail biting, high octane and exciting read.

    Into the Black Nowhere in three words: Exhilarating, Incisive and Petrifying

    That is the sound of Meg Gardiner hitting it out of the ball park once again!!!! She has delivered another well-written, edge of your seat, page turning book that gets your heart beating and one's pulse elevated.

    FBI profiler Caitlin Hendrix, who we first met in UNSUB, is now facing off against another serial killer. In Southern Texas, women are going missing from various locations. Caitlin and the FBI discover two women's bodies in the woods after receiving a phone call from a woman whose dog has come home carrying a bloody piece of clothing. Both women's bodies have been staged and are wearing white nightgowns surrounded by Polaroid pictures.

    To find the serial killer, Caitlin must bet into his mind but by doing so, is she also letting him into her mind as well? After a phone tip, Caitlin believes she has a suspect, but this individual brings her to the attention of another person of interest. A person so arrogant, so intelligent, so cunning, so crafty that Caitlin and the rest of the Behavioral Analysis Unit will have to dedicate every waking hour to trailing and bringing down this killer. But will they be able to stop a man who always seems to be step ahead of them?

    This book, just like its predecessor UNSUB, had me at page one and did not let go. Caitlin continues to be a strong female lead who will not stop when it comes to bringing criminals to justice. She is dedicated to her job and in this book, we also see her trying to maintain a long-distance relationship with her boyfriend, Sean, who is also an agent who specializes in bombs and works on the opposite coast.

    One thing I really like about Gardiner's books is that her characters are strong yet flawed. She also can present the investigation in an interesting and intelligent manner. Her plots are very well thought out, and the pacing of the story is spot on. Nothing feels rushed nor drawn out in this book. There was never a point, where I felt bored and wished the story would hurry along. Having worked with serial killers, I will say that I am very impressed with her portrayal of them in her books.

    I am looking forward to the next book in this series. I want to know what exactly was going on the night Caitlin called her friend and she was with Sean...hmmmmm...yes, they have history but why didn't she come right out and say, "Sean and I are having drinks" made things a little suspicious. Looking forward to learning who is safe in book 3, more character development, will Caitlin and Sean work a case together in the next book?????? I have no idea, but I can't wait to find out!!!!!!!

    **the killer in this book was inspired by Ted Bundy. I wonder who the inspiration will be for her next killer?

    Thank you to Penguin Book Dutton and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    After I read

    this past fall, I knew that I immediately had to click onto Amazon and pre-order

    . 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 publication date. Sadly, no negligent workers were looking out for my mental sanity. January 23rd rings in and I ran down to check the mail and was ecstatic to find this beauty in my pile of mail. I was in the midst of another read, but was (im)patiently waiting to start round 2.

    Caitlin Hendrix is back, in Virginia with a whole new clique, and serving you FBI realness. Ms. Hendrix was recruited to join the team after her successful capture of The Prophet in

    and immediately jumps into a new case located in Solace, which is a somewhat neighboring suburb for Austin, TX. Several twenty-something year old women have been declared missing by county police and the FBI is called in due to the pattern and nature of these instances. All the women are physically similar and the disappearances have all happened on a Saturday night. Police and FBI are unsure how to advance, until a body of one of the women shows up—dead.

    Meg Gardiner, Meg Gardiner, Meg Gardiner. Sorry, I thought by saying your name three times it might actually give me the opportunity to meet you and thank you for this series. I just simply devoured this book—I can't describe it any other way. Writing, as always, was top-notch for even the most greedy thriller and suspense junkie.

    differs from

    and I feel like as an honest reader and reviewer, I have to let you know before you pick up this book.

    Sorry, it just isn't as intense as

    , it just isn't. We rarely get to hear any further developments of Caitlin's private life with Sean and when we do, it's irrelevant for the most part.

    , we do get an original crime-fiction thriller that hasn't been seen before. Ms. Gardiner's stories are based on real-life serial killers and in this story we are given a fan fiction of the Ted Bundy's hysteria, but we are given more that just a new interpretation of a story we've all heard. We see a cat and mouse game gone awry; we see a new kind of suspense this time—dare I say more realistic? This is the type of read that you want to make sure all doors are closed, shower curtains double checked, and windows locked. Although the two books are vastly different in their story telling, they are also given the same Meg Gardiner UMPH that you are expecting. This series is the

    of crime-fiction. Ms. Gardiner gives zero f's about who lives and who dies and that plot twist always makes for the juiciest story. Expect red herrings. Expect to be scared. Expect to pre-order Book 3 whenever we find out more information about it!

    This book is FANTASTIC. It’s the best thriller I’ve read so far this year, I literally could not put it down.. it was THAT GOOD. And I absolutely love the main character Caitlin, she’s extremely smart and doesn’t back down to anyone. Run don’t walk to pick this up. I rated all the stars

    Women are disappearing in Gideon County, Texas. All five of them abducted late at night on Saturdays over the past six months. FBI Special Agent Caitlin Hendrix works in the Behavioral Analysis Unit. When the BAU is put on the case, Hendrix travels to Solace, TX with two other special agents to investigate the abductions. They might be able to find the last victim alive if they move fast. Hendrix is new to the unit, still in training to hone her profiling skills. She still bears the scars from the case that gained her a job at the BAU -- a serial killer known as The Prophet. An unknown killer is still at large from that case. Hendrix keeps a composite sketch of the suspect above her desk to remind herself that he's still out there. But for now, this case in Texas is more important.

    I'm not going to say more about the plot. No spoilers from me!

    nto the black nowhere is the second book in the Unsub series. I loved the first book in this series! Unsub was supremely suspenseful, dark and just awesome! This follow-up book is just as good, or even better. I spent yet another late night reading because I had to finish the story. Great characters. Awesome suspense. Royally horrific bad-guys. I don't often give 5 star reviews.....but this book earned full stars. I am most definitely going to be reading more of this series! And.....CBS has purchased the rights to turn it into a television series. I have mixed emotions about this.... On the one hand....YAY! The characters and storylines are awesome and I'd love to watch it on televisions! But on the other hand.....the characters and storylines are awesome....and I'd hate television to screw that up. I don't want another Temperance Brennan/Bones thing going on. Now TV fans will stop me there and say "Hey, the Bones series ran for 12 seasons!'' Yeah, it did.....but the characters and situations bore little resemblance to what Kathy Reichs wrote in her books. They shared a name and an occupation (sort of), but nothing else. Temperance Brennan in the books is a more complex and interesting character than the Sheldon Cooper-like character from the show. And the plots from the books are much better, more realistic. The argument might also be made that Meg Gardiner will be a producer for the show......well, Kathy Reichs was listed as a producer for Bones as well. Sigh. Let's see some grit and some good scripts, CBS! Be true to the books -- they are amazing!

    I can't wait for the next book in this series!

    Omggggg I LOVE THE UNSUB SERIES! And, can we say girl power?! I love Caitlin and Rainey! They are bad ass!!! Into the Black Nowhere is book two in the Unsub series and it was AWESOME! I believe you could read it is as standalone but why do that when Unsub 1 was AMAZING!

    Omggggg I LOVE THE UNSUB SERIES! And, can we say girl power?! I love Caitlin and Rainey! They are bad ass!!! Into the Black Nowhere is book two in the Unsub series and it was AWESOME! I believe you could read it is as standalone but why do that when Unsub 1 was AMAZING!

    FBI profiler, Caitlin Hendrix and her FBI team, are requested in Gideon county for their help. Five women have been disappearing on Saturday nights for the last six months. All five women leave with out a trace and even more chilling, they all look alike. Blonde with a “cheerleader body”. They disappear from what seem like safe places: At home, a movie theater, from a car, etc.

    Caitlin is new to her FBI team but she is learning quickly how to profile an Unsub. As Caitlin and her team gather up information on the missing girls and the whereabouts they went missing they soon figure out a profile for the Unsub. Now, they just have to find him.

    I LOVED getting the perspective of the psychopath. It was chilling and so much fun to read. I like psychopaths (in books) what can I say? The way he leaves the women is terrifying. I loved it.

    To be honest, I read this at a slow pace. I knew it was going to be good. I just didn’t want it to end. But, towards the end I was racing! I couldn’t get enough of it!! That ending?!?!?Meg Gardiner is a new author to me, starting with Unsub. I will be on the look out for book 3 or any other series she has to offer.

    If you’re thinking of reading Into the Black Nowhere, DO IT! Highly recommend this series. 5 thrilling stars!! Thank you to Dutton for the free copy for an honest review!

    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 to Texas with a couple of other members of her team to look into a string of abductions. Women are disappearing and residents are starting to be frightened. There are no clues and nobody knows whether the women are dead or alive. Caitlin and the team start working on putting together a profile for the perpetrator.

    Most of the book follow Caitlin as she works through the clues to get in the head of the perpetrator. We do get the chance to see things closer to the criminal from time to time as well which worked well in the story. I was a bit surprised by how early in the book the team narrows down the list of suspects and subsequently catches the individual responsible. I had a feeling that there were a few more surprises in store and was excited when things followed that path.

    I liked the characters in this book. Caitlin is smart and has great instincts. She really is focused on finding the criminal and puts everything into the job. Sean and Michelle do play a role in this book but it is much smaller. I have to admit that I would have liked to have a little more Sean in this book. I did like seeing Caitlin struggle with being away from people in her life and felt it helped round out her character.

    This was a fast moving story. The opening scene was very strong and really set the tone for the story. I did think that the book slowed down just a bit towards the middle but everything picked up quickly and ended with a ton of action. Things don't always go well for the team and there were more than a few surprises along the way. I really liked the fact that as soon as I thought I had something figured out I would soon find that I knew less than I thought.

    I would highly recommend this book to fans of mystery thrillers. This is the second book in the UNSUB series but could easily be read as a stand alone since it tells its own story. This is a fast paced story that kept me thinking until the thrilling end. I can't wait to read the next book in this amazing series!

    This was good. The opening of the book really caught my attention. I did think that things slowed down a bit towards the middle but the story had a really strong finish.

    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-

    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-

    and our inner curious drama queen gets to experience what used to be a real fear and concern plaguing society in our fiction. I used to wonder how someone like Ted Bundy got so many women to trust him; sure he was good looking and charismatic, but when a killer is on the loose prowling at night and women are urged to exact the utmost caution, how did he manage to STILL deceive so many ladies?

    was a fantastic fictional account that helped me understand just how a wolf in sheep’s clothing can fool nearly anyone into believing what they want you to.

    was actually quite different than

    , and that’s not a bad thing. While I did feel the suspense was not as gripping in this novel (we find out fairly early the identity of the killer and he follows a very similar M.O. to the original Ted Bundy), I loved how much the “series” portion of the novel matured. Caitlin and Rainey were a dynamic duo and I would LOVE to see Rainey in future books. She was a strong POC and I feel that mainstream thrillers just do not have enough of these. She was entirely as vital to this story as Caitlin herself, and now that she’s kind of on her own, I like the idea of Caitlin making a deep, platonic connection with another female who gets what she goes through and struggles with on a daily basis.

    The plot was a little less twisty this go around, but I felt because we knew more here, the action and pacing were brilliant and nerve-wracking. I loved how this felt like a true, FBI thriller and it wasn’t trying to also market as a psychological suspense/mystery. I did miss seeing an abundance of Sean in this book, but I understand why he wasn’t as relevant in this installment and was pleased at how the ending of this book gave a little nod to

    and book #3. I am beyond ecstatic to see where Meg Gardiner takes us next and am waiting with bated breath for another showdown with Caitlin and her crew! Hurry up 2019!!! ❤
