"...Collins ratchets up the intensity of her trademark “Seatbelt Suspense” by adding a chilling psychological element."

She hears voices. Sees things that aren’t really there. Knows sinister eyes are always watching. Is Kaycee Raye just paranoid or is someone literally trying to frighten her to death?

Kaycee’s fears are no secret. In fact they’ve become her livelihood. Calls to the police department in the middle of the night because Kaycee believes someone’s out there have become routine.

When images of a dead man flash across her computer screen or appear on a digital camera on her kitchen table, no one is inclined to believe her. The cold reception she receives from the police drives her further into the recesses of her own mind, blurring the boundaries between reality and imagination.

Through Exposure Collins ratchets up the intensity of her trademark “Seatbelt Suspense” by adding a chilling psychological element. Remember how the movie Sixth Sense messed with your head?

The psychological mind play is so powerful; readers will begin to question their own sanity.

We all fear something. Especially things that go bump in the night. Brandilyn does a masterful job of exposing those fears, making us want to pull the covers over our heads.
