It’s the dead of night, and Professor Thaddeus Bartholomew is frantically crawling through a field to stay alive. With mere moments to act, he has only enough time to type out a text message—a name—before his stalker overcomes him. Later he’s found with a hole in his chest, shot with a crossbow, and burned to death.
Meanwhile, San Diego crime scene tech Grace Descanso has gone on vacation with her daughter, but the FBI feels far from guilty about interrupting them after her name turns up on the professor’s phone. Grace knows vaguely who he is, but can’t imagine why his dying act would involve her in any way—not that it matters. The FBI won’t let her walk away; she can either join the investigation or become a suspect in it. Soon, political leaders and extremists will converge at the world’s largest agricultural conference, and all signs indicate that Bartholomew’s brutal murder in a field of genetically modified soy is just the beginning of something much larger than one man’s death.
A gripping sequel to her heart-racing series debut, The Timer Game, Susan Arnout Smith’s Out at Night entangles Grace in a sweeping conspiracy that hits her dangerously close to home.

From Libary Journal
In this sequel to The Timer Game, Grace Descanso, a medical doctor-turned-DNA profiler, is drawn into an FBI investigation when her name turns up in the phone of a professor who was shot to death with a crossbow. Trying to keep everything under control (she has to work with a detested uncle, and her five-year-old daughter is living with her father), Grace finds that her cousin is involved with an ecoterrorist group planning a major strike in the United States. Smith has created a brilliantly human character in Grace Descanso. Recommended for Tess Gerritsen fans.
Praise for The Timer Game
“A valuable addition. Her complex and compelling thriller is well plotted, adeptly executed, and thoroughly satisfying.”
---San Diego Union-Tribune
“Smith raises the tension with a complex—but never confusing—plot....What follows is heart-pounding suspense....Few thriller protagonists are as memorable.”
“[An] intriguing medical-thriller debut.”
“A nail-biting premise.”
