The next suspense superstar. - Stephen King
Gardiner tells her story so well that it is easy to be carried along by this high-octane thriller. - Susanna Yager, Sunday Telegraph
Stephen King is absolutely right. Meg Gardiner is an astonishing writer, and the DIRTY SECRETS CLUB is a humdinger of a thriller, with shocks and twists galore. I couldn t turn the pages fast enough. - Tess Gerritsen, author of THE BONE GARDEN
A winner in every way. THE DIRTY SECRETS CLUB is nuanced and layered and a harrowing thriller that chews up the streets of San Francisco from the high-rises to the Tenderloin. Author Gardiner makes every one of her characters leap alive off the page, and I personally am in love with the most compelling of them all, Jo Beckett the psychiatrist who analyzes dead people for the cops and who s willing to trade her cell phone for a cup of coffee. - Jeffery Deaver
The story just keeps coming. She is up there with Michael Connelly and Lee Child. - Stephen King
