My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen can definitely pat their backs and enjoy the success of their 2nd book that is creating waves in the market. It’s absolutely crazy and entertaining. the plot is again maybe not new in the purest sense but I love how the authors manage to still work it out in such a way that it becomes hard to put down. There’s that compelling quality in their story-telling that makes it a winner from the word ‘go’. A study of ethics and morality is itself very objectionable, what may seem right to one person in a particular circumstance can be viewed with disdain by another person in a different set of circumstances. Some of the questions being posed to Jessica actually made me stop and think for myself as to what my answers would be. By the end page, the sure answer is Trust not and You have only yourself to rely on!
Seeking women ages 18–32 to participate in a study on ethics and morality. Generous compensation. Anonymity guaranteed.
When Jessica Farris signs up for a psychology study conducted by the mysterious Dr. Shields, she thinks all she’ll have to do is answer a few questions, collect her money, and leave.
Question #1: Could you tell a lie without feeling guilt?
But as the questions grow more and more intense and invasive and the sessions become outings where Jess is told what to wear and how to act, she begins to feel as though Dr. Shields may know what she’s thinking… and what she’s hiding.
Question #2: Have you ever deeply hurt someone you care about?
As Jess’s paranoia grows, it becomes clear that she can no longer trust what in her life is real, and what is one of Dr. Shields’ manipulative experiments. Caught in a web of deceit and jealousy, Jess quickly learns that some obsessions can be deadly.
Question #3: Should a punishment always fit the crime?
An electrifying new novel about doubt, passion, and just how much you can trust someone.
