Book Review ~ Double Blind by Brandilyn Collins @Brandilyn


Back of the book:

Desperate people make desperate choices.

Twenty-nine-year-old Lisa Newberry can barely make it through the day. Suddenly widowed and the survivor of a near-fatal attack, she is wracked with grief and despair. The 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 thoughts:

Do you have a suspense lover on your Christmas list? Double Blind would be the perfect gift for them! Brandilyn once again writes an intriguing story about an ailment that strikes many. There is a deliciously sinister element that turns this from an average read to a heart pumping adventure.

Lisa Newberry has been through her share of overwhelming tragedies. She now suffers from a very debilitating case of depression. It seems that no matter what she does, she just can’t seem to shake it. An experimental surgery to implant a brain chip seems to hold the answer.

At first it appears to be the miracle cure, but then she begins to have strange visions. Of course since it is a Brandilyn Collins novel, these visions are about a violent murder. The twists and turns in this story are mind blowing.

These visions at first seemed a little “woo woo” out there for my tastes. I’ve been a Collins fan for some time so I should have known better. The conclusion brought it all together and made perfect sense. The best part of course was that I was on the edge of my seat right up to the end! (Don’t you hate it when you figure out a suspense book early on?) If you like to be creeped out but at the same time reminded that God is sovereign over every situation . . . pick up a copy of this book and enjoy!
