Publisher's Description

When your worst fear comes true. Someone is watching Kaycee Raye. But who will believe her? Everyone knows she’s a little crazy. Kaycee’s popular syndicated newspaper column pokes fun at her own paranoia and multiple fears. The police in her small town are well aware she makes money writing of her experiences. Worse yet, she has no proof of the threats. Pictures of a dead man mysteriously appear in her home—then vanish before police arrive. Multisensory images flood Kaycee’s mind. Where is all this coming from? Maybe she is going over the edge. High action and psychological suspense collide in this story of terror, twists, and desperate faith. The startling questions surrounding Kaycee pile high. Her descent to answers may prove more than she can survive.

Exposure by prolific author Brandilyn Collins is a unique novel that has a story within a story, and keeps the reader guessing until the end as the two plots come together in an original, creative way. It starts with columnist Kaycee Raye, who tries to convince the police that someone is stalking her, leaving pictures of a man who has been shot and left on a dark yellow floor. A little girl who is a close friend, Hannah Parksley, goes missing, and Kaycee is crazy with fear for herself and Hannah. The second plot involves a mobster, Nico Nicorelli, who is after a man, Martin Giordano, and his family following a seven-million-dollar bank heist. Martin is killed by Nico, and Martin’s wife Lorraine and four-year-old daughter Tammy must run for their lives to escape the killer. The two stories stay separate and are easy to follow to the very end where a logical combining of both tales is drawn.

This is a breathtaking, page-turning thriller that will be enjoyable to read by both men, women, and even teenagers. The characters are well-defined and developed. Kaycee’s obsessive paranoia is constant throughout the story. Lorraine’s fear of being caught by Nico is real. Although the novel is plot-driven, the reader with identify with the characters easily.

However, there is very little reference to God or Christian beliefs. There are no biblical quotes or any substantial discussion about Christ. This is the only drawback of an otherwise terrific book. It is recommended for a general audience rather than a specifically Christian one. – Anita Tiemeyer, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    I love suspensefilled books and this certainly met my expectations. I was reading on my lunch hour and someone in the office said something to me and I nearly jumped out of myy skin. They wanted to know what I was reading. Good book!!

    I couldn't put this book down! I finished it in less than 24 hours. I read almost exclusively inspirational fiction, more along the Karen Kingsbury and Beverly Lewis lines, so a mystery was out of my usual reading choices. This book caught my attention because my local library was featuring it as their Inspirational Book Club book for the month. I'm so glad I stepped out of my usual genre to try something new. I already have another one of Collins' books to read next.The faith elements in the book were light, but Kaycee, the main character, relies on her faith when she faces some very difficult situations in her life. Maybe because I am new to the mystery genre I did not see the shocking ending to the story. It certainly kept me up most of the night!

    Since her earliest days, fear has stalked Kacyee Raye. It followed her throughout her childhood, passed on by a mother who jumped at shadows and ran from whispers. It snaked its way through her young adulthood, bolstered by the tragic death of a close friend. And it crept into her writing when she began a popular column about facing paranoia.But which of her fears are real and which imaginary? Kacyee confronts that question when alarming images and mysterious messages appear in her homeon her camera, on her computer screen, and more. Is she crazy? The local police wonder. Kaycee does too. As the incidents and the tension escalate, something has to give. Will it be Kacyee herself?Brandilyn Collins does an amazing job of combining compelling characters with a page-turning plot. Previous reviewers who find Kaycees paranoia overdone have little understanding of how past wounds impact present reality. The book's faith component is light but nonetheless appropriate.Im not a fan of genres anywhere close to the authors signature seatbelt suspense, but I couldnt stop talking about this book. Well done, Ms. Collins. After a few more deep breaths, I might venture to pick up another of your titles.Andoh, yesdoes this qualify me for the SMALLER Honkin' Chickens Club?

Author/Artist Review

Author: Brandilyn Collins
Submitted: August 05, 2010

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm known for writing my trademarked Seatbelt Suspense®--stories that are fast-paced from page one, feature three-dimensional characters, are full of twists, and include a faith thread woven naturally into the story. EXPOSURE is my 19th book.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I had a "blind" book contract to fill--and no idea for that book. Then one night I woke from a sound sleep with one thought blaring in my mind: a camera that takes its own pictures. And in a flash (pun intended) I saw a scene from what would become the climax of the book's first chapter. The scene and camera intrigued me. Then I had to figure out the rest of the story ...

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  EXPOSURE is about our fears. We all have fears of some kind. Bottom line, God is bigger than ANY fear. Will we allow him to help us overcome those fears in our lives that hold us back--or not?

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I got to use a few of my own fears in this book. Like Kaycee, I'm afraid of the dentist, heights, and confined spaces. It was fun using my own quirks for a protagonist.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  EXPOSURE is set in the small town in which I grew up, Wilmore, Kentucky. It was a lot of fun setting the book there, as many of my extended family still live in Wilmore. Of course, Mom was thrilled. As I say in my author's note at the end of the book, I made only one promise to her when I said I was setting my next story in her beloved Wilmore: "I may or may not blow up the town." As for the ending (the last chapter), I have to say I love it. And it wasn't my intended ending. I was writing toward a different (and not nearly as good) ending. Then one day I was driving along with my hsuband, not even thinking about the book I was writing. Out of nowhere a flash of that ending scene popped into my head. "Ahh!" I cried. "I just thought of a great ending!!" My husband is rather used to such creative outbursts. He simply nodded and smiled. I was thrilled. I knew this final twist would make the book. I went back through the chapters I'd written to weave in a few points here and there that would lead to that final chapter. I'll tell you--99% of the time writing a novel is simply hard work. But once in awhile when an epiphany hits--it's the greatest!
