Dad has Alzheimer’s. 

Could he really steal 40 billion dollars? 

A disgraced hedge fund manager awaits trial for bilking investors out of forty billion dollars. The legendary dark pool wizard offered phenomenal profits, but the SEC discovered he never made a single legitimate investment. His hedge fund scammed thousands of people, including a Russian mobster.

For Maggie Fender, a law degree remains a daydream as she struggles to support her ex-felon teen brother and their incoherent father. Suffering from Alzheimer's, Dad's rarely lucid, but that fact doesn't stop the police from arresting him for murder.

Their father barely functions, but her hacker brother swears Dad is sending them vital messages about the missing billions. When a private investigator and the Russian mobster focus their efforts on Maggie's father, her remaining hope turns to rampant fear. 

She's the only adult in her family, and her weary camel won't carry a single extra straw. Her brother's hacking conviction landed him in prison and trashed the family's reputation, but he swears he was framed. No fans of the Fender family, the local police assume Dad ran away when he's kidnapped. 

With her father's life in danger, who can Maggie trust when everyone has betrayed her?


Pure dead brilliant 
Thrilled that I bought this novel, what an amazing read! 
Her main protagonists feel so natural that they could be the folks next door 
There are plenty of twists and turns in a story woven together so beautifully that everything makes sense. 
There are also some serious and thought provoking aspects of the story. 
Love when one chapter ends and you just have to see what happens next? Dark Pool is a fun read. 
this novel, moved me far more! 
The way Helen kept my attention with the many twists and turns to keep you guessing was nothing short of amazing. 


All my stories intersect, so your favorite characters in one novel may reappear in a completely different series.  Mine is a single story world, where storylines and people cross into other lives. Consequently, my books could be read either by series or by the order in which they were written, so I’ve included both lists:

The Masters CIA Thriller Series

   3 LIES



The Cruise FBI Thriller Series




The Fender Hacker Thriller Series


By Publication Date:

   3 LIES

The #1 New York Times Bestseller (October 2017) from the author of The Da Vinci Code.
Bilbao, Spain
Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend a major announcement—the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a renowned global figure. Kirsch, who was one of Langdon’s first students at Harvard two decades earlier, is about to reveal an astonishing breakthrough . . . one that will answer two of the fundamental questions of human existence.
     As the event begins, Langdon and several hundred guests find themselves captivated by an utterly original presentation, which Langdon realizes will be far more controversial than he ever imagined. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Reeling and facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape Bilbao. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch to stage the provocative event. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.
     Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme religion, Langdon and Vidal must evade a tormented enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace itself . . . and who will stop at nothing to silence Edmond Kirsch. On a trail marked by modern art and enigmatic symbols, Langdon and Vidal uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery . . . and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.
Origin is stunningly inventive—Dan Brown's most brilliant and entertaining novel to date.
