The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. In a previous incarnation (as Meg Gardiner), M G Gardiner was an author who had the absolute measure of the contemporary crime novel, in which plotting of tensile strength was matched to writing rich in nuance. The new moniker hardly signals a change, but if anything is new, it is an even more assured sense of authority. Harper Flynn is left near to death when the LA club in which she works is the scene of an assault by raiders wearing masks. She is haunted by the thought that not only did one of the attackers escape, but the survivors of the brutal attack are now in the firing line of a ruthless killer or killers.
