A. J. Banner

A. J. Banner grew up reading Agatha Christie, Daphne du Maurier, and other masters of love and mystery. She enjoyed sneaking thrillers from her parents' library, which gave her excellent fodder for her novels of psychological suspense: THE GOOD NEIGHBOR, THE TWILIGHT WIFE, AFTER NIGHTFALL, THE POISON GARDEN and IN ANOTHER LIGHT. Publishers Weekly calls IN ANOTHER LIGHT "gripping," #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner calls it "riveting," and Washington Post bestselling author Kerry Lonsdale calls it "a pulse-pounding, compulsively readable mystery."
