Summary

Rock breaks scissors. Scissors cut paper. Paper covers rock. The rules are simple—except when it's people's lives at stake. 
  
By the time Charlotte and Patrick Ballard discover the damage their daughter, Lizzy, can do with her mind, it's already too late for Charlotte. They hide Lizzy away, trying to save others from the same fate, and trying to save Lizzy from life as a human lab rat. But they can't hide her forever. 
  
Little do they know that respected Philadelphia businessman Gerard Bonnay is responsible for Lizzy's ability. And Bonnay is willing to eliminate anyone who gets in the way of his goal of turning that power to his own ends. 
  
As her protectors are picked off one by one, will Lizzy be able to escape from Gerard Bonnay's deadly zero-sum game? 
 
"Lizzy Ballard is a special young woman. She's smart, unassuming, and beloved by all who know her. Unless you make her angry. Not since Carrie have we seen a character excite such fear in those forced to learn her terrible secret the hard way. Some want to control her. Others want to kill her. Lizzy is determined to be free, but it will come at a terrible price. Fingers crossed 'Rock Paper Scissors' is the first title of another engrossing Matty Dalrymple series." 
Robert Blake Whitehill, Award-winning screenwriter and author of The Ben Blackshaw Series 
"With Rock Paper Scissors, Matty Dalrymple has created her own brand of riveting paranormal suspense. A bubbling zinger that grabs you on the first page and doesn't let go even at the end, when it leaves you wanting to take the main characters home, or to follow them to their next date with suspense." 
Merry Jones, Author of the Elle Harrison, Harper Jennings, and Zoe Hayes thrillers 
"A fresh new character is on the thriller scene with frightening powers that even she can't control. Not since Stephen King's 'Firestarter' has someone like Lizzy Ballard come along, a young woman who fears herself even more than she fears others. Briskly paced and darkly imagined, Dalrymple's thriller keeps readers turning the pages—with menace around every corner." 
Suzanne Chazin, Author of the Jimmy Vega mystery series

    She can’t outrun him…
     
    Isabel should have died the night we met. She has a gift for looking danger in the eye and coming out unscathed. She narrowly escaped DC with her life, and now she’s on the run again. I’m hardly her guardian angel, but I’m determined to keep her safe. More, I refuse to give her up. She’s under my skin, sparking more than a few latent memories. She’s made me feel again. Showed me I’m human in ways I never knew possible. 
     
    I’ll find my way back to her, even if that means contending with the organization that has promised to keep her hidden. Except they have a different way of doing business than I’m accustomed to. Now I have to decide who I really am. Man or mercenary.
