About the Book: (from Amazon)

‘Till death do us part’ has never been so true...

Armed with a slew of advanced degrees and powerful intuition, forensic psychologist Dr. Autumn Trent is ready to conquer the world and touch the lives of its seven billion inhabitants. She’s prepared to fight for justice, right the wrongs...because she knows what it’s like to be wronged.

As a child, a single blow from her father left her changed forever. Her body survived the aftermath, but her brain was altered in ways that were both good and bad. As a freak, she poured herself into her studies, accumulating all the knowledge she could, intent on whipping broken systems into shape. Take down criminals one by one, even if it means putting her own life on the line.

When a brutal double homicide shocks the town of Sawmill, Oregon, the FBI needs Autumn’s specialized assistance. The couple’s daughter, just beginning a life of her own, disappears the same night as their murder. Was she kidnapped by a merciless killer, or is she his equally heartless accomplice? Or worse?

Accompanied by a boss who undermines her instincts and patience at every turn, Autumn soon realizes that their killer has just begun his true mission of punishing parents who break their marital vows. As the body count rises, so do the stakes as the killer escalates quickly. What began as a hunt for a nineteen year old girl turns into Autumn’s game of cat and mouse.

Autumn’s Game, the first book in Mary Stone’s Autumn Trent Series, is a riveting psychological murder mystery that will make you watch what you say behind your closed doors and offers an action-packed ride to the very end.

About the Author: (Author's Website)

Mary Stone lives among the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains of East Tennessee with her two dogs, four cats, a couple of energetic boys, and a very patient husband.

As a young girl, she would go to bed every night, wondering what type of creature might be lurking underneath. But instead of asking her parents to look for her, Mary looked herself. Scared, sure, but she just needed to know. Needed to see with her own eyes. It wasn’t until she was older that she learned that the creatures she needed to most fear were human.

Mary has always adored puzzles of any kind and could often be found sitting in a corner with a pencil scrunched tightly in her hand, an open puzzle book on her lap. This isn't to say she's a loner. Quite the contrary, Mary has always been a leader taking her friends on many exciting adventures to hunt down and capture an assortment of bad guys pulled from her imagination.

Today, instead of walking that imaginary beat, she now creates vivid stories with courageous, strong heroines and dastardly villains. She invites you to enter her world of serial killers, FBI agents but never damsels in distress. Her female characters can handle themselves, going toe-to-toe with any male character, protagonist or antagonist.

Come on, open a book. Mary dares you to look under the bed with her.
