Someone knows Lana’s secret—and he’s dying to tell.

Lana Granger lives a life of lies. She has told so many lies about where she comes from and who she is that the truth is like a cloudy nightmare she can’t quite recall. About to graduate from college and with her trust fund almost tapped out, she takes a job babysitting a troubled boy named Luke. Expelled from schools all over the country, the manipulative young Luke is accustomed to controlling the people in his life. But, in Lana, he may have met his match. Or has Lana met hers?

When Lana’s closest friend, Beck, mysteriously disappears, Lana resumes her lying ways—to friends, to the police, to herself. The police have a lot of questions for Lana when the story about her whereabouts the night Beck disappeared doesn’t jibe with eyewitness accounts. Lana will do anything to hide the truth, but it might not be enough to keep her ominous secrets buried: Someone else knows about Lana’s lies. And he’s dying to tell.

Lisa Unger’s writing has been hailed as “sensational” (Publishers Weekly) and “sophisticated” (New York Daily News), with “gripping narrative and evocative, muscular prose” (Associated Press). Masterfully suspenseful, finely crafted, and written with a raw power, In the Blood is Unger at her best.

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
