Praise For…

Praise for One Step Too Far 

“It’s not often that a thriller so deeply casts us into the darkness of both nature and the human heart…Terrifying, primal, and very, very tense. Read it with your heart in your throat—but read it.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Gardner’s latest series continues to excel; instinctual, tragedy-driven Frankie is one of crime fiction’s most intriguing new sleuths.”
Booklist (starred review)

"Gardner's gripping sequel to 2021's Before She Disappeared...winds toward a surprising conclusion."
—Publishers Weekly
"An authentic Wyoming setting, a tantalizing mystery, and a Labrador named Daisy.  What’s not to like?"
—C.J. Box, #1 NYT best-selling author of Dark Sky

"Master storyteller and avid hiker Lisa Gardner has written the book she was meant to write, an immersive, propulsive, utterly chilling, and yet deeply moving wilderness thriller in which her intimate knowledge of and love for the rugged Wyoming backcountry shines through on every terrifying page. Without a doubt, the best book I’ve read all year.”
—Karen Dionne, author of The Marsh King’s Daughter

"Visceral, unpredictable, and terrifying. You’ll never hike into the woods again without thinking of Lisa Gardner’s One Step too Far."
—Robert Dugoni. #1 Amazon Best Selling Author of the Tracy Crosswhite Series 

"Propulsive, adrenaline-fueled, terrifyingly real."
—Clare Mackintosh, bestselling author of Hostage
