Twenty-nine-year-old Lisa Newberry can barely make it through the day. Suddenly widowed and a survivor of a near-fatal attack, she is wracked with grief and despair. Then she hears of a medical trial for a tiny brain chip that emits electrical pulses to heal severe depression. At rope’s end, Lisa offers herself as a candidate.
When she receives her letter of acceptance for the trial, Lisa is at first hopeful. But—brain surgery. Can she really go through with that? What if she receives only the placebo?
What if something far worse goes wrong?
in the relentless style for which Brandilyn Collins is known, Double Blind is a psychological thriller with mind-bending twists. Lisa faces choices that drive her to the brink, and one wrong move could cost the lives of many.
My Comments: This book was riveting. I think I related to it because I have suffered from depression. Lisa lost her husband, had three miscarriages, and was attacked. She could barely function due to depression and was desperate for a way out. When she heard about a brain-chip implant which could take away the sadness, but not the memories, she wanted in on the trial test. Little did she know by getting rid of her depression she signed up for something much worse.
I could hardly put this book down. This book is so different than what I have been reading all summer, yet I enjoyed it quite a bit. I usually read Brandilyn Collins. I find her writing good in a quirky kind of way. Her writing entertains me. This book is no exception. I enjoyed more than I usually enjoy her books. I recommend it.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. The opinions are my own.
