Meg Gardiner

Edgar-winning novelist Meg Gardiner has written fifteen best-selling thrillers that have been translated into 20 languages. Her books have been described as ‘Hitchcockian’ (USA Today) and ‘nail-biting and moving’ (Guardian). The Dark Corners of the Night, her current title, is an exhilarating thriller in which FBI profiler Caitlin Hendrix faces off against a charming, merciless serial killer. The Dark Corners of The Night is inspired by LA Night Stalker. Stephen King says, ‘Don’t miss it. This is a great one’.


Australian author, L.A. Larkin, has been described by James Phelan as ‘a world-class thriller writer’ and likened to Michael Crichton by The Guardian. Her new novel, PREY, reintroduces the feisty and resourceful investigative journalist Olivia Wolfe who must defeat a psychopathic killer who shares his kills on the Dark Web.

The Dark Corners of the Night

The Midnight Man appears in the darkness like a ghost, made of shadows and fear. He comes for the parents but leaves the children alive, tiny witnesses to unspeakable horror. 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. 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.
