Congrats to thriller writer Meg Gardiner for RANSOM RIVER, a brisk, creepy and terrific mystery that taps into that prototypically American genre, the small-town noir (think BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK).

Meg introduces a great new protagonist, outside of her two series starring Evan Delaney and Jo Beckett. I don’t know if she intends the new heroine, Rory MacKenzie, to be a stand-alone or a series character, but she sets up the latter possibility nicely.


RANSOM RIVER is a nifty thriller. One of the best I’ve read this year.
