Her Writing

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.  Throughout her twelve-year career, she has deftly walked the fine line between literary novels and commercial thrillers all the while hitting The New York Times bestseller lists and earning both critical acclaim and millions of fans worldwide.

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.
