Brilliant Prey by Brenda Wallace

“A twisting, intense psychological thriller.”
— Best selling author Scott Nicholson, Liquid Fear

Brilliant Prey
Brenda Wallace

Even a genius can be played for a pawn by a cunning and deadly manipulator.

Lauren James is a former psychiatrist, still reeling from her husband’s suicide and the subsequent miscarriage that swept away her tidy life the year before. On the anniversary of his death, she opens what she hopes to be a "Welcome to Mensa" envelope and pulls out a threatening puzzle along with the identical suicide note she had burned the previous year. 

Unraveling the twisted clues, Lauren embarks on a harrowing journey drawn in by a child’s neglected grave, a professor from the island of St. Croix, and a U.S. Supreme Court nominee. When Lauren discovers the reason behind her husband’s shocking death, she must struggle with her deepest convictions and whether killing is acceptable if it saves more lives.

  2. Thanks Rosalind, I love the cover! Talk about scary! :D

  3. Thank you, Rosalind and Louise! Renee Barratt of The Cover Counts did that amazing cover. I still love to stare at it. Yesterday, we had two earthquakes in Oklahoma and one broke the state record and it definitely felt like a record-breaker. Shook me up enough that I'm just now checking in. But, you know an earthquake will wind up in one of my books. Thanks again and sorry for the late response to your kind comments. Brenda
