A SIMPLE LIST. TWELVE NAMES. NONE FAMILIAR.


When an elderly small town doctor dies, his widow contacts his most famous former patient, a noted author and neuroscientist. It seems that the doctor has left him something. A list of names. A mystery of sorts. One that the doctor has taken great pains not to explain. But one that he feels the scientist alone can solve...


What starts out as a lukewarm promise to honor the doctor's dying wish soon turns into a race halfway across the country to find out what those names have in common before the two men who have demanded the return of that list can stop him... using any means necessary.

Advanced praise for THE SMART ONE:

"THE SMART ONE is a whip-smart suspense novel in every way. The premise is ingenious, the twists clever, and the plot quick and sharp."

-- Eric Rickstad, New York Times Bestselling author of The Silent Girls, Lie in Wait, and Reap

"This book is brilliant, I loved it. I read a lot, and this was so good that it goes straight into my top five reads of the year. Aside from the fact it was written incredibly well, the story was so clever, so gripping, and just so bloody exciting that I was reading way past my normal lights out time each night... I was utterly absorbed and entertained from beginning to end."


- Pauly Anderson, Net Galley review
