“She’s in the top five of my best writers list. I have a list of King, Grisham, Koontz…you know, those guys. They are the authors who you know will deliver.” – The Lit Critic
Can Eleri and Donovan outsmart a killer who leaves no evidence behind or even a discernable cause of death? How will they track down someone who is more intelligent than both of them together?
Curie, Nebraska was designed as a research haven for the ultra-intelligent. In fact, applicants must pass a rigorous IQ test before they can call the strange town home. Nearly every resident—including several child geniuses—is suspect and no one is safe.
Going undercover as the new neighbors leaves the agents struggling to find even the most basic clues. Eleri and Donovan can barely maintain their false identities against their overly-curious and stunningly intelligent new friends, let alone solve a murder.
Can they figure it out before the next body turns up? Or has the killer already found them…
This is the seventh book in the NightShade Forensic Files series. It can be read as a standalone.
