Here is the Goodread's synopsis of Brillance by Marcus Skaey(book one)
:In Wyoming, a little girl reads people’s darkest secrets by the way they fold their arms. In New York, a man sensing patterns in the stock market racks up $300 billion. In Chicago, a woman can go invisible by being where no one is looking. They’re called "brilliants," and since 1980, one percent of people have been born this way. Nick Cooper is among them; a federal agent, Cooper has gifts rendering him exceptional at hunting terrorists. His latest target may be the most dangerous man alive, a brilliant drenched in blood and intent on provoking civil war. But to catch him, Cooper will have to violate everything he believes in - and betray his own kind.
From Marcus Sakey, "a modern master of suspense" (Chicago Sun-Times) and "one of our best storytellers" (Michael Connelly), comes an adventure that’s at once breakneck thriller and shrewd social commentary; a gripping tale of a world fundamentally different and yet horrifyingly similar to our own, where being born gifted can be a terrible curse.
Marcus Sakey has already written the sequel to Brillance titled A Better World and the sequel to that one titled Written in Fire. Over a million and a half books from the series has been sold.

Negotiations are currently going on in regard to Ms. Amanda Seyfried taking the lead in All Things Heard & Seen. Directing the project are Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (American Splendor). They will also adapt the screenplay. Peter Cron, Stefanie Azpiazu, and Anthony Bregman are producing it along with Ms. Julie Cohen. Hudson Valley, New York is where the production would take place. It starts in October 2019.
Here is the goodread's synopsis of All Things Cease to Appear (renamed All Things Heard & Seen for the film adaptation):
Late one winter afternoon in upstate New York, George Clare comes home to find his wife murdered and their three-year-old daughter alone--for how many hours?--in her room down the hall. He had recently, begrudgingly, taken a position at the private college nearby teaching art history, and moved his family into this tight-knit, impoverished town. And he is the immediate suspect--the question of his guilt echoing in a story shot through with secrets both personal and professional. While his parents rescue him from suspicion, a persistent cop is stymied at every turn in proving Clare a heartless murderer. The pall of death is ongoing, and relentless; behind one crime are others, and more than twenty years will pass before a hard kind of justice is finally served. At once a classic "who-dun-it" that morphs into a "why-and-how-dun-it," this is also a rich and complex portrait of a psychopath and a marriage, and an astute study of the various taints that can scar very different families, and even an entire community.
The producer of IT, Mr. Roy Lee and Mr. Jon Berg of Vertigo Films, will produce the film adaptation of The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. Ms. Chris Romero, former wife of Late George A. Romero, is also producing the feature as well. The executive producer of this project is Mr. Andrew Childs. A screenwriter is yet to be announced.
Here is Goodreads' synopsis of The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon:
Nine-year-old Trisha McFarland strays from the path while she and her recently divorced mother and brother take a hike along a branch of the Appalachian Trail. Lost for days, wandering farther and farther astray, Trisha has only her portable radio for comfort. A huge fan of Tom Gordon, a Boston Red Sox relief pitcher, she listens to baseball games and fantasizes that her hero will save her. Nature isn't her only adversary, though - something dangerous may be tracking Trisha through the dark woods.
Here is Stephen King's thoughts about this news:
“I’m thrilled that my book is being brought to the screen, and that George’s company is involved. Chris (Romero) has worked long and hard to make this project happen,” said King in a statement.
