Super salesman Brent Darby is living the good life, both personally and professionally. He won the Rookie of the Year award at Revolution, the advertising company he works for in Boston, and he is married to Amanda, the love of his life. After his recent purchases of a new home and a sports car, his life is just about perfect. Then he makes one seemingly innocent decision to play an Internet game.
The website www.DieorDieTrying.com offers a big payoff to the winner of the deadpool game they host, and Brent thinks he has just as good a chance to win as anyone else. After all, the game is all luck. Or is it?
When a fellow player, known only as Intruder, gains access to Brent’s personal information, Brent’s life is thrown into chaos. A gruesome discovery makes Intruder’s goal all too clear. Soon Brent is careening through the shadowy world of cybercrime, identity theft, and murder on a non-stop thrill ride he wants no part of. Will Brent or Intruder make the final move of the game?

This book sent chills up my spine as I began to see how easily lives can be destroyed or turned upside down by Internet stalking. Deadly Intruder was a book I simply didn’t want to put down. Kudos to Anne Kelsey. I will be looking out for more from her.” —Maureen McMahon, author of Shadows in the Mist
“Deadly Intruder is a tense, taut thriller that’s all too possible in our electronic age. As the tension rises in each scene and chapter, I found myself looking over my shoulder to make sure no one was watching ME.
