Synopsis from Goodreads: 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?
My Review: This was a fascinating look into the human mind at the cross section of morality and money. While the story starts off a little slow I immediately liked Jessica, the main character and wanted to see where the story took her. It takes a little while but the book eventually picks up steam and shifts into high gear. From there it a twisty thriller that will keep you reading long past your bedtime. If you like thrillers, I highly recommend this one.
