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

    Brutal murders. An ancient treasure. A rogue state. 
    A young acquaintance of nonverbal communications expert Doctor Genevieve Lenard begs her to look into the disappearance of his friend. When the friend’s tortured body is found in a forest outside Strasbourg, the case leads Genevieve and her team to the body of a second victim with many unusual secrets—a forged masterpiece the least surprising of them all; an ancient treasure shrouded in mystery the most intriguing.

And the moment she discovers that the evidence points to a rogue state, her young acquaintance also disappears. 
    Without knowing who the killer is and why he’s torturing his victims, there will be no stopping him. Or saving her friend from vicious suffering and eventual death.

    "In Arnold's well-executed fifth Brandon Fisher FBI novel… FBI agent Paige Dawson becomes embroiled in a case, not as an investigator but as a suspect… Arnold does a good job creating an air of uncertainty surrounding the murder, and the chemistry among her FBI characters is convincing." 
    –Publisher's Weekly 
     
    Sometimes the past should stay there… 
     
    The murder is one of the most heinous FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher has ever seen. But that's not why he and two members of the team are rushing to California. The Bureau is interested because the prime suspect is one of their own, Paige Dawson. 
     
    But Paige didn't go to Valencia to kill anyone. She had set out on "vacation"—her new lover in tow—only to confront the man who raped her friend twenty-some years ago. While the hands of the law are tied, she wants him to face the fact that he destroyed a young woman's life and know that, as an FBI agent, she'll be watching his every move. Yet, instead of accomplishing her goal, she wound up in the back of a police cruiser. 
     
    Now Paige must face off with a hard-nosed detective determined to stick a murder charge to a fed. But with the trained eyes of the FBI on the case, it's becoming more and more obvious that the evidence lends itself to a serial killing, not an isolated incident. And as long as the local authorities are focused on Paige, the real murderer is still out there, possibly waiting to strike again…
