9780007337675: The Nightmare Thief

In the California wilderness no one can hear you scream.

San Francisco Forensic Psychiatrist Jo Beckett doesn’t dissect the body or the crime scene – she dissects a life and a mind, recreating the victim as a person, piecing together the story of their death to get to the truth. And then she goes after the killer.

Autumn Reiniger wants something special for her twenty-first birthday. Daddy’s bought her the car and the apartment, but now she wants excitement. And what Autumn desires, she gets.

Her father signs-up her and five friends for an ultimate urban reality game. ‘Edge Adventures’ alert the SF police that a ‘crime situation’ is underway, so the authorities will ignore any squealing tyres or desperate cries for help.

Then – when working on a case nearby – Jo Beckett encounters a group of men carting six sullen college kids to the woods for a wilderness adventure. Suspicious, she takes a closer look. And winds up with an invite to a birthday party she may never leave ...

‘One of the most exciting openings of a crime book I have come across ... a tense, thrill-a-second race against time as everyone present is forced to confront real life-changing danger.’ DAILY MAIL

Praise for THE MEMORY COLLECTOR:
‘The next suspense superstar.’ STEPHEN KING

‘Meg Gardiner is an astonishing writer.’ TESS GERRITSEN

‘Riveting...a book you just can’t put down...The Memory Collector is a first-class thriller with non-stop action.’ CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

Praise for THE LIAR’S LULLABY:
‘Breathless suspense, slick plotting and a cast of compelling characters make this a solid addition to Edgar-winner Gardiner’s dossier of superlative thrillers with appeal both for pure suspense fans and those who favour well-delineated characters.’ BOOKLIST
