Jessica sees an ad seeking women ages 18-32 to participate in a psychological study on morality and ethics. It promises generous compensation, which she desperately needs. Thinking that she will only need to answer some questions on a survey and be on her way, she signs up without much hesitation. The questions are a bit more invasive than Jess believed they would be, but the real trouble begins when Dr. Shields asks her to participate in a more in depth study. She becomes more and more paranoid, and can no longer tell reality from what is being twisted by Dr. Shields and her psychological experiment. She soon finds out that some obsessions can become deadly.
This is the psychological thriller that I have been looking for, y’all! This book had everything that I wanted it to have. It had characters that were all well fleshed out; some that were likable and relatable, and some that were not so much. The story flowed really well, and didn’t really lag at all. I was invested from the beginning, and didn’t want to put it down. The best part, though, was that the plot line was twisty and suspenseful enough that it gave me chills and made my heart race in places. This is exactly what I’m looking for in a great psychological thriller! This was a great read to start my year off with, and I hope this is a good omen for the rest of the year!
Many thanks to St. Martin’s Press for allowing me to review this book for them.
