Death by Midnight by Nicole Nadeau is out now. For Anna Goode, being a teenaged-genius is not easy. And it’s even harder when she has to keep her homemade inventions a secret from everyone but her best friend, Jake. But her secret is exposed when a shadowy figure named Komarov—who somehow knows about her inventions—kidnaps Anna and her parents. Anna barely manages to escape and is given an ultimatum by Komarov: help him carry out his mysterious plan or let her parents die.
With her inventions and Jake by her side, Anna has only forty-eight hours to gather the three sets of vials Komarov needs to save her parents. Along the way, she discovers that Komarov has caught the attention of the CIA and that his plan goes deeper than she ever could have realized.
Anna must use her gifted mind to stop Komarov and save not only her parents but countless others. And she better hurry. Because the clock is ticking.
