Today's book is: Double Blind by Brandilyn Collins
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?
Written 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.
Collins is another fantastic suspense writer! Everytime I pick up one of her books, I know I won't be able to put it down. True again for this book. I read it all last night and almost missed dinner because of it.
The idea of a brain chip that can fix debilitating emotional problems, is pretty scarey/interesting. Having struggled with my own paralyzing anxiety at times, I can see the temptation in doing anything to make it stop. Imagine reaching that point, where the only solution you see is brain surgery, and then ending up with a whole new set of problems! I don't want to give too much away, but Lisa ends up with a series of terrifying "visions" as a result of the chip. And those visions lead to one plot twist after another.
I highly recommend this book!
