Lisa Unger is the New York Times best-selling master of suspense with books published in thirty-three languages and millions of copies sold worldwide. She has been nominated for, or won, numerous awards including the Strand Critics, Audie, Hammett, Macavity, ITW Thriller, and Goodreads Choice. In 2019, she received two Edgar Award nominations, an honor held by only a few authors, including Agatha Christie. Yet, despite all that success, it’s hard to compare Lisa Unger to any of her contemporaries. Unique, inventive, and often experimental, her writing is impossible to categorize.
She combines her extensive knowledge of the human psyche with an understanding of trauma and fear to create novels that have earned her a reputation as one of the most skilled practitioners of the psychological thriller around today. Unlike many bestselling authors who stick with a formula to play it safe, Unger’s bestseller status and loyal fan base have, if anything, propelled her to experiment more widely with her writing. Her character-driven novels explore the vast gamut of human experience, delving into the psychology of both protagonist and villain, often blurring the lines between the two.
