In Wyoming, a little girl reads people’s darkest secrets by the way they fold their arms. In New York, a man sensing patterns in the stock market racks up $300 billion. In Chicago, a woman can go invisible by being where no one is looking. They’re called “brilliants,” and since 1980, one percent of people have been born this way. Nick Cooper is among them; a federal agent, Cooper has gifts rendering him exceptional at hunting terrorists. His latest target may be the most dangerous man alive, a brilliant drenched in blood and intent on provoking civil war. But to catch him, Cooper will have to violate everything he believes in—and betray his own kind.From Marcus Sakey, “a modern master of suspense” (Chicago Sun-Times) and “one of our best storytellers” (Michael Connelly), comes an adventure that’s at once breakneck thriller and shrewd social commentary; a gripping tale of a world fundamentally different and yet horrifyingly similar to our own, where being born gifted can be a terrible curse.

4.0 #Brilliance? Now there's a clever author...
I love it when I enjoy a book more than I expect to. It's a little bit science fiction, a little bit X-Men, a little bit cop story, a little but social commentary, and a lot bit non-stop excitement. In this alternative 2013, Brilliants mysteriously started being born around 1980. Think X-Men wit...

4.0 The Brilliance Trilogy by Marcus Sakey
This is more a wrap-up of the entire trilogy than just this book since I never reviewed the first two books. The first book in The Brilliance Trilogy, Brilliance is about a small percentage of people in the world who are labeled as “brilliants”, as opposed to those who don’t and are considered “no...
