#1 New York Times bestselling author

​​“Take my word for it, James Reece is one rowdy motherf***er. Get ready!” —Chris Pratt, star of The Terminal List, coming to Amazon Prime

The “explosive and riveting” (Kevin Maurer, coauthor of No Easy Day) New York Times bestselling Terminal List series continues as James Reece embarks on a global journey of vengeance.

A woman boards a plane in the African country of Burkina Faso having just completed a targeted assassination for the state of Israel. Two minutes later, her plane is blown out of the sky.

Over 6,000 miles away, former Navy SEAL James Reece watches the names and pictures of the victims on cable news. One face triggers a distant memory of a Mossad operative attached to the CIA years earlier in Iraq—a woman with ties to the intelligence services of two nations…a woman Reece thought he would never see again.

Reece enlists friends new and old across the globe to track down her killer, unaware that he may be walking into a deadly trap. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Reading In the Blood is like grabbing a live wire…A shocking, unputdownable thriller.”

    Karin Slaughter, New York Times bestselling author of Criminal

  • In the Blood is an absolute corker of a thriller that cements Lisa Unger’s status as one of the brightest stars in the game.”

    Dennis Lehane, New York Times bestselling author of Live by Night

  • In the Blood is a riveting new thriller from Lisa Unger. Dark and haunting, with a deadly twist that you won’t see coming til you’re hit between the eyes, this book is a winner.”

    Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling author of Death Angel

  • “[A] gripping novel of psychological suspense…[with a] tense, surprise-laden plot.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “This novel, full of dark psychological suspense, is set in a small college town not far from New York City; it follows Lana Granger, a psychology major nearing graduation…At the suggestion of faculty advisor Langdon Hewes, she becomes the nanny of Luke, a troubled eleven-year-old who uses very adult methods of terrorizing his mother, Rachel. Soon he’s tormenting Lana with seemingly uncanny knowledge of her past. The narrative is interspersed with excerpts from the diary of an unidentified mother about her life with an extremely disturbed child, which is read by Mol in a soft voice that varies from guardedly optimistic to despondent. Handling the more extensive role of Lana, Thaxon is tart, almost flippant when the extremely bright student is viewing her life objectively, then switches to a less confident, almost miserable approach when expressing self-doubt and regret over past mistakes.”

    Publishers Weekly, audio review

  • “Unger pulls off a bravura feat…Readers will…savor the pleasure of being guided by Unger’s sure hand along a deliciously twisted narrative path. Another scary winner from an accomplished pro.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • In the Blood is a psychological thriller that played me—in the best sense—from beginning to surprising end. I guarantee Lisa Unger will pull the rug out from under you more than once, so hold tight.”

    Andrew Pyper, author of The Demonologist
