The Mind of a Genius Excerpt

Here's an excerpt of a new book, The Mind of a Genius by David Snowden!
As they continued to wait, a metallic red Honda Accord cruised towards them from the opposite side of the road. The car slowed down when it got to Prince’s house and they noticed two Chinese guys sitting side by side in the car. They both wore dark sunglasses, and as he continued to stare at them, Jones had a feeling that he had seen them somewhere before. But where? He racked his brains for a few seconds, but he still couldn’t place them. And yet, as he continued to stare at them, as they cruised along the road in the left-hand drive car, heading in their direction, he was now sure that he had seen them before.
Then they saw the guy in the passenger’s seat suddenly point towards the house as they drove past, and Jones’s instinct for danger suddenly kicked in.
“Those guys look familiar,” said Jones, as they watched them cruise past.
“Driver’s mate was pointing towards the house,” said Lawlor, who had never seen them before, but was now quite suspicious himself. “Who are they?”
“It’ll come to me,” said Jones.
Then they saw Laura Prince drive through the automatic gates in her gleaming, silver Mercedes SL350 convertible.
They watched her drive through the gates. She was wearing dark sunglasses, a black shirt and her lovely blonde hair was bound at the back.
She drove along the road in the opposite direction, the way the Chinese guys had gone.
Gorgeous Steve gave her a bit of a head start then he made a U-turn and went after her.
As he went after her, he was still trying to remember where he had seen those guys before. But it wouldn’t come to him.
