  • Summary:

    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.

    Just, wow. I originally didn’t have mush time to read this book. With everything I had going on I thought I’d perhaps find a few minutes to read. But I never expected to stop everything I was doing just to finish.
    I really don’t want to give spoilers, this book was so fantastic I don’t wanna ruin it for anyone. Brenda Wallace write with a voice that has the essence of Dan Brown and even a little Stephen King, with a whole lot of her own. I’m not used to reading psychological thrillers for a reason: I just don’t like the mundane feel of them. But Brilliant Prey captured and held my attention. I felt like I was on an emotional rollercoaster that kept me guessing until the very end. The characters are believable and thrilling to read about.
    A must read!
