|Bestselling thriller author CJ Lyons gives a literal spin to her website tagline, “Thrillers with Heart,” in her first work for young adults, Broken. (See Maryelizabeth’s review below.) A former pediatric ER doctor, CJ has assisted police and prosecutors, and traveled extensively internationally. CJ’s most recent adult thriller is Hollow Bones, in which FBI agent Caitlyn Tierney investigates a case of modern medicine and the ancient mysteries of a Mayan temple.||
The only thing fifteen-year-old Scarlet Killian has ever wanted is a chance at a normal life. Diagnosed with a rare and untreatable heart condition, she has never taken the school bus. Or giggled with friends during lunch. Or spied on a crush out of the corner of her eye. So when her parents offer her three days to prove she can survive high school, Scarlet knows her time is now... or never. Scarlet can feel her heart beating out of control with every slammed locker and every sideways glance in the hallway. But this high school is far from normal. And finding out the truth might just kill Scarlet before her heart does.
About the Author
Author of eighteen novels, former pediatric ER doctor CJ Lyons has lived the life she writes about in her cutting edge Thrillers with Heart. CJ has been a story-teller all her life, always creating stories about people discovering the courage to make a difference.
From the ancient mysteries of a Mayan temple to the sinister secrets of modern medicine, FBI agent Caitlyn Tierney uncovers crimes that have been buried far too long and far too deep...
It’s the kind of case that chills Caitlyn to the bone. Missing person. College student. Beloved daughter of a world leader in biotechnology. She was last seen on a spring break cruise. No witnesses. No motives. Just one possible lead—reports of a stranger who may have lured the young archeology major off the ship and into the jungles of Guatemala. When Caitlyn follows her hunch into the jungle—with the FBI’s Jake Carver by her side—the trail takes a surprising turn into the very heart of darkness.
