    HAPPY PUB DAY!“We serial killers are your sons, we are your husbands, we are everywhere.”-Ted BundyObviously 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 que...

    4.5 Stars (rounded up). 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, ...

    Yama Hama, it's fright night!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 b...

    Beyonce. Oprah. Meg Gardiner. All three iconic legends, but only one of the three has soooo successfully entertained me to the brick of super fandom. Ladies and gents, it's Ms. Gardiner, bitch.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 ...

    I was lost in the sunny, jagged craggy coulee with Susanne and Kaceey reading Into The Black Nowhere feeling very excited to start reading this one. Once we settled in and opened up this book we were lost in the coulee and couldn’t be found till we were done. 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 engagin...

    Set in Texas? Mentioned Torchy's Tacos? Talked about how we homeschool our kids?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 i...

    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

    My book ish: Blog | InstaOKAY, 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 ...

    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 fi...
  • Jill Croce-McGill
    5* Stars! 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!
  • Kaila
    When I read UNSUB earlier this year, it a) gave me nightmares, b) instantly catapulted to my favorites shelf, and c) made me crave more of both Meg Gardiner's writing and Caitlin Hendrix's spunk and intuition. That should give you some small idea of how incredibly excited I was to tackle the second book in the UNSUB series, Into the Black Nowhere.It did not disappoint.Meg Gardiner does it again with this equally brilliant and captivating seq...
  • Carole (Carole's Random Life in Books)
    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.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.Ca...
  • Brenda
    Meg Gardiner’s second book in the UNSUB series is on par with the first book. Using short, jabbing chapters made the book fast-paced initially, and as the FBI drew closer to the Unsub, the chapters were more extended. Most characters, especially Special Agents Caitlin Hendrix and Brianne Rainey, were well-drawn, but an exception is SAC C. J. Emmerich. He was present and accounted for, but I don’t feel I know him as well. The Unsub was written...
  • Amy
    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 kee...

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 ...

    For all my reviews, visit my blog at http://ladyjbookishnook.blogspot.comFans 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 nov...
  • Sam (Clues and Reviews)
    Last year, I was completely obsessed with Unsub, the start of a new series by Meg Gardiner that featured FBI agent Caitlin Hendrix. Heart pounding, dark and visceral, Unsub had me holding on to the edge of my seat and screaming for more. So, of course, I was extremely excited when I found out that the second book in the series, Into the Black Nowhere, would be publishing in January 2018! Now, without giving away any plot points or information (be...

    I am really enjoying Gardiner's Unsub series--this is the second. The opening gets central TX right and the Oklahoma scenes are well-done (many thanks to Gardiner for that) instead of stereotypes. 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. Highly recommended.

    INTO THE BLACK NOWHERE by Meg Gardiner - Thank you so much to Dutton Books for providing my free copy - all opinions are my own. “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. ...
  • Laura/Mystery in Minutes
    Overall Rating: 4.5/5Read the complete MINM review at: to a gripping, race-against-time crescendo, Into the Black Nowhere is an immersive, meaty thriller for readers to sink their entertainment teeth into. It features Caitlin Hendrix, formerly of the Alameda County Sheriff's department, and now a special agent with the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit. Into the Black Nowhere takes Caitlin and her col...
  • Josh
    The follow-up to Unsub hits all the right chords for fast-paced cat-and-mouse thrillers but lacks the same level of character depth and story outside of the hunt-for-a-serial-killer narrative. In Unsub, author Meg Gardiner went to great lengths to establish her series protagonist Caitlin Hendrix, now the new kid on the block in the FBI’s Behavioural Analysis Unit, as a tough, take charge cop with a personal connection to a killer and a family h...
  • Danielle (The Blonde Likes Books)
    After reading and loving UNSUB a few weeks ago, I knew I had to get my hands on Into the Black Nowhere, the second book in the series. It's always a gamble with thrillers that have sequels - sometimes the sequels aren't as good as the original, but I was pleasantly surprised that I loved this one just as much as I loved UNSUB! Into the Black Nowhere picks up shortly after UNSUB leaves off. Caitlin has relocated to Virginia for her new job as a ...
  • Bark
    I gave Unsub three 1/2 stars and this one will be getting three minus the 1/2 and I will be stopping with the series right here. It’s just not one for me. Everyone else seems to love it so I think it’s a case of personal taste. And, to be totally honest, I wasn’t really in the mood for it when it arrived in from Overdrive but I plunged in anyway because I had waited so damn long for my turn. This is book #2 in the Unsub series and follows F...
  • Sarah
    The second installment of Meg Gardiner's UNSUBseries, INTO THE BLACK NOWHERE, is a blistering read. The pace is fast, and the characters are all super real, flesh-and-blood creations with whom you will enjoy spending time.Rookie FBI agent Caitlin Hendrix and her team were first introduced in UNSUB, which was a terrific read on its own. INTO THE BLACK NOWHERE kicks things up several notches. Caitlin recently has been named to the elite FBI Behavio...
  • Hollis
    After the intensity of book one, I expected a lot.. more. INTO THE BLACK NOWHERE failed to match the level of wow I experienced in UNSUB and ultimately was seriously frustrating due to the constant fumbles and flubs of law enforcement. It was an interesting set-up in regards to catching the killer early and then watching everything go to shit in the process, and in fact escalating as a result, but like.. wow. Not the good kind of wow. The so much...

    4.5 StarsWow, that was a wild ride! Couldn't stop listening! The spoiler is about Shaun and Caitlin's relationship.(view spoiler)[I did have some uneasy feelings about Shaun and Caitlin's relationship. Especially since he didn't answer is phone while visiting his ex-wife and daughter. Caitlin was unhappy about it, but who knows. Things were left in the air. Hope it's not anything to worry about. (hide spoiler)]Love Hillary Huber's narration!
  • Emily
    INTO THE BLACK NOWHERE IS SO GOOD. I didn't think there was any way it could top Unsub, but I think it may have happened. The story was amazing, fast-paced, and addictive. I may or may not have a slight fascination with Ted Bundy research, so this a good book for me. I was genuinely unhappy when I had to leave my house, and set this book down today, but I came straight home to finish it 😂.I tore through this book, and it's so good that I'll be...
