Baron seems to have died in a boating accident. Her mysterious
death seemed like it was a classic big boat meets small boat
accident, but Amanda's body was never found. Her son, Travis,
was a small baby when she passed away and his father erased
her life and presence. As a teenager, Travis becomes more
curious about his mother and sets out to find out what happened
to her with his friend Mitch. Travis finds out what happens
to his mother, but is it as dangerous as it seems?
The plot of A Brilliant Death appears to be a typical

activity? The characters of Travis and the former detective
with his own jaded history work well together: allied together
despite their differences. The mystery has enough plot twists
to keep readers entertained and not overwhelmed.
Overall A Brilliant Death is a great mystery that will
keep readers intrigued and curious about what Travis and his
friend Mitch find during their investigation of Travis' mother's
death and the circumstances around it.
