St. Martin’s Press (January 8, 2019)
Fiction/Mystery, Thriller, & Suspense
The next novel of psychological suspense and obsession from the authors of the blockbuster bestseller The Wife Between Us
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. 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. 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.
From the authors of the blockbuster bestseller The Wife Between Us comes an electrifying new novel about doubt, passion, and just how much you can trust someone.
“Listen, you can’t just leave someone like Lydia. Not if she doesn’t want you to.”
In An Anonymous Girl, a young woman impulsively enters a computerized study on ethics and morality – and her life and things get stranger and stranger. This is a very suspenseful read. Jessica finds herself in the middle of a very twisted relationship and I had no idea of how this would end up. You may think you know how it’s going to go, but NOPE, it’s not. It is full of mind games, insecurities, jealousy, and paranoia. This is the second book I have read by these two authors and I’ve enjoyed both very much. This is a Cat & Mouse thrilling read!
