Grand Central

Weston Graham has a knack for switching identities. For 30 years, he has assumed one after another, changing personas with the ease other men change neckties. As a result, he’s been able to swindle eight women out of their fortunes just before they disappear forever. Never one to leave a clue behind, he’s confounded the authorities as well as his victim’s families. The only similarity between the cases is that the missing women vanish at the very same time as the new man in their lives.

FBI Agent Drex Easton is on the hunt and will stop at nothing to capture the elusive Graham. He’s convinced that all eight women have been murdered and that Graham is the sociopath responsible for their deaths. Every time he gets close to capturing his prey, Weston changes identities and disappears again. But now he has the suspect in sight.

Talia Shafer is a successful businesswoman and newlywed. She recently married Jasper Ford, a handsome older man who oozes charm. Drex moves in next door to the couple to insinuate himself in their lives and keep surveillance on their house. The more he gets to know about the couple, the more he’s convinced that Jasper is in fact Weston Graham and that Talia is almost certainly his next victim. Will Drex be able to apprehend his man in time to save Talia’s life? Or does she have more to do with the case than he’d like to believe?

With Outfox, Brown has delivered a novel that induces insomnia. It burns itself into our minds as we are led down the rabbit hole by a very cunning serial killer. The result is a tale which robs us of precious hours of sleep and leaves us second guessing those closest to us! With more plot twists than your favorite amusement park roller coaster, readers will hang on gleefully as they face the hair-raising confrontation between federal agent and deadly hustler. Brown proves once again that she is the master of the game, a force to be reckoned with when it comes to crafting mind-blowing suspense fiction that rattles our nerves and gets our hearts pumping.
