Double Blind by Brandilyn Collins

About the Book:

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.

My Review:

5 Stars

Wow, Wow, Wow!!!! Double Blind was a fantastic book that kept me up late reading since I just had to know how it was going to all play out. This is the second book I have read from Brandilyn Collins and she has quickly become a favorite author of mine. Her tagline of Seatbelt Suspense is so true and her books are a wild ride that leaves the reader feeling very satisfied. 

This book takes a look into depression and how it can drive someone to look into anything to relieve the debilitating pain that it brings, both physical and emotional. When Lisa Newberry signs up to be included in a double blind trial of a new empowerment chip that is suppose to cure severe depression she ends up in a situation that is far worse than she could ever imagine. It drives her to solve what is going on when she realizes something is not right. It takes strength and determination to solve the mystery that takes more turns that can ever be expected.

If you are looking for a gripping thriller that will keep you at the edge of your seat than look no further to this book and anything else from Brandilyn Collins. I know I can't wait to read more from her in the future.

*I received this book through the publisher and radiant lit for the purpose of this review.
