About the Author
Author Lisa Gardner

Since then she has become a #1 New York Times bestselling crime thriller novelist. A self-described research junkie, she has parlayed her interest in police procedure, cutting edge forensics, and twisted plots into a streak of thirteen bestselling suspense novels, including, The Killing Hour. With over 22 million books in print, Lisa is published in thirty countries. Her success crosses into the small screen with four of her novels becoming movies (At the Midnight Hour; The Perfect Husband; The Survivors Club; Hide.)
