Survive the infection. Survive the Infected.
A new strain of the flu is spreading across Asia, Africa, and Europe. Disturbing scenes are flooding social media and the 24-hour news channels. People are worried. They’re frightened.
Too many dismiss the stories as infotainment hype.
But the virus is here. It’s running through the alleys and clawing its way into the suburbs. And it’s in your parents’ living room, in the veins of a deranged man murdering your mother.
Do you run? Do you freeze in fright? Or do you fight?
Fall in love with the sexiest girl in New Orleans?
Prepare to die for her?
Lara is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.
Slim hips wrapped in black fishnets.
Long, dark hair…
She’s the star of the Pussycat Angels, the Dark Angel who stole my heart.
But her fame has a sinister side,
A man who won’t stop until she’s his.
I would do anything to save her…
He would do anything to see me dead.
OMG, I hate soccer!
I’ve been waiting for my best friend to return from soccer camp for half the summer. We’re meant to be together forever, that’s written in the stars. But when Tony is finally back in town, his mind is focused on that new girl in his co-ed team.
I definitely won’t give up my true love that fast, so there’s only one thing I can do now: get on the team, too! My performance at the qualifications must have raised more pity than admiration from the captain, however, because in the end, I’m actually accepted. Shit! And now?
Well, now it’s personal training with the team captain. Ryan licking away a trail of lime juice from my lips after a tequila shot was not part of the deal, though…
Finally! Summer in the quiet seaside town of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, was quiet and crime-free for once. Melissa Maples would have breathed a sigh of relief if it wasn’t for the turmoil created by her cop boyfriend’s teenage daughter, Krissy, who happened to be visiting her father for the summer. She would take that tumult over another murder anytime though.
Sadly, the quiet did not last. The whole town is soon under siege by more than one federal agency investigating after the unfortunate death of a restaurant patron and the hospitalization of a number of other townsfolk.
Attempting to rebuild her life after the tragic death of her beloved husband, middle-aged widow Melissa Maples moved back to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Part of her starting over meant opening her own bakery – Kill Devil Delicacies – that specialized in artisan breads. Already successful after a few short years, she looked forward to a number of things namely: her nephew, Logan, visiting for the summer and competing in the Outer Banks Regional Bake-Off for the chance to appear on a nationally televised cooking show.
Although still mourning her husband, Melissa finally felt like life was getting back to some sense of normalcy. Her life in Kill Devil Hills was satisfying and peaceful…at least until she opened the bakery door on an early summer morning to discover a mystery that would rock the quaint seaside town to its core!

The brain is an absolute marvel—the seat of our consciousness, the pinnacle (so far) of evolutionary progress, and the engine of human experience. But it’s also messy, fallible, and about 50,000 years out of date. We cling to superstitions, remember faces but not names, miss things sitting right in front of us, and lie awake at night while our brains endlessly replay our greatest fears. Idiot Brain is for anyone who has ever wondered why their brain appears to be sabotaging their life—and what on earth it is really up to.
