Overview

The highly-anticipated sequel to the Edgar nominated "Brilliance"

The brilliants changed everything.

Since 1980, 1% of the world has been born with gifts we d only dreamed of. The ability to sense a person s most intimate secrets, or predict the stock market, or move virtually unseen. For thirty years the world has struggled with a growing divide between the exceptional and the rest of us.

Now a terrorist network led by brilliants has crippled three cities. Supermarket shelves stand empty. 911 calls go unanswered. Fanatics are burning people alive.

Nick Cooper has always fought to make the world better for his children. As both a brilliant and an advisor to the president of the United States, he s against everything the terrorists represent. But as America slides toward a devastating civil war, Cooper is forced to play a game he dares not lose because his opponents have their own vision of a better world.

And to reach it, they re willing to burn this one down.

From Marcus Sakey, the master of the mindful page turner (Gillian Flynn) and one of our best storytellers (Michael Connelly), Book Two of The Brilliance Trilogy is a relentless thrill ride that will change the way you look at your world and the people around you."

Set in a near-future America tragically accustomed to terrorism, Edgar finalist Sakey’s stellar sequel to 2013’s Brilliance holds the reader in thrall until the final crack of an unthinkable doom—then offers more. U.S. President Lionel Clay, a man temperamentally and intellectually better suited to the classroom than to national leadership, desperately needs the help of Nick Cooper, one of the “brilliants” born since 1980 with special gifts that outstrip 99% of humanity. The members of a shadowy group, the Children of Darwin, are burning truckers alive, starving three American cities, and threatening all-out civil war. Cooper’s fight against this foe demonstrates the importance of decency, principle, and love in a world where politicians’ promises of “protection” lead to the bitterest enslavement. Sakey skillfully juggles a complex backstory while setting up an intricate foundation for this apocalyptic trilogy’s conclusion. Agent: Scott Miller, Trident Media Group. (June)
