Double Blind: A Novel

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.(from Goodreads)


My Thoughts

Once Lisa Newberry gets her brain chip, she immediately starts to feel better. But just as quick, she starts having nightmares that seem more real than dreamed. Is it the chip? If not, where are these images coming from and what could they possibly mean?

This was a great read. Fast paced and I think, believable. Lisa is a fighter and determined to find out the truth at any cost. The story had my heart pounding from the suspense.

This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I am looking forward to reading some of her other stories.

Thanks to B&H Publishing Group and Netgalley for allowing me to read this in exchanges for an unbiased review.
