All Lisa Newberry has is her memories, even as painful as they are. It validates who she is, who she was and who she can be. First she miscarried three times, then she lost the love of her life, Ryan in a car accident, and later she was brutally attacked outside in a parking lot. Now her life is reduced to nothing more than simply waking up and trying to see it to the end. To say she was depressed was mild compared to how she was really feeling. Blackness, fear and anxiety now consume her.
Her only hope remains in the envelope and it's contents she holds within her hands. It's from a company called Cognoscenti and even though she believes it is what she so desperately needs, she will soon learn it will hold another quite different fate for her. She has filled out all the necessary paperwork required for this life-changing medical trial for victims of PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or suffering from severe depression that almost incapacitates its victims. Most of the subjects have been from brutally attacks or returning from the war and the trial promises to suppress the emotions of the events without altering the memories.
It's the one thing Lisa doesn't want to eliminate are the memories of those times but it's the debilitating emotions she can't seem to work past. Now if she is approved, she can undergo surgery to have an Empowerment Chip installed on her brain that has shown amazing results for those that receive the real thing. She won't know if she'll get the placebo or the real thing, but all she knows is for right now, something has to change. When she opens the envelope, she is surprised when she learns she's been accepted. But what will really happen when she decides to go through with this? Will she forget everything? Will she survive the surgery? What is nothing happens?
In the latest suspense thriller from Brandilyn Collins, Double Blind takes the readers into an interesting science fiction story line where a new medical trial promises the most amazing results to help it's subjects who receive the real thing. There have been no reported side effects and Lisa knows how life changing this could be for her, but what she doesn't realize is just how life changing it will really be. It may just be the worst decision she's ever made!
I received Double Blind compliments of B & H Publishers and Net Galley for my honest review and have to say, I was completely captivated by this one. I was spending so much time trying to figure out what was going on and who was behind it all, before I realized it, I had finished the book. Once again Brandilyn creates such a believable story that will hold the reader in the palm of her hands until the final page is turned. I easily rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars. I found myself constantly stopping and telling my family how amazing this story really is! Due out in book retailers in October of 2012!
